With Etienne entering stud for the first time in 2023, we expect his first crop in early 2024.
With Etienne we present a young stallion who has everything to continue the legacy of his important grandfather Estobar NRW and sire Escolar. He is no less than the full brother of the highly decorated Eternity, the Escolar son who was already Bundeschampion, Danish Vice-Champion and finally bronze medallist at the World Championships for Young Dressage Horses in Ermelo.
And Etienne knows how to inspire: He convinces with typeful modernity and best rideability values. In the past 2022 season, Etienne passed a very good disposition test and subsequently received the approval seal.
Etienne's sire Escolar has long since established himself as an internationally respected stamp stallion. However, he is joined by a dam line of special quality. The dam's sire Sir Donnerhall I has written breeding history and not only has more than 100 licensed sons, but also 59 offspring at Grand Prix level. The thoroughbred connection through Lauries Crusador xx and Massud xx promises melting and hardness at the same time.
Etienne has everything to take on his father's legacy. He is powerful like his sire, has a lot of shoulder freedom as well as high elasticity, always shows himself uphill and is equipped with a lot of thrust from the hindquarters.
Etienne convinces with typeful modernity and best rideability values. In 2022 Etienne passed a very good disposition test in Warendorf and was subsequently licensed on site. Ridden by Lisa Horler, he won a test for young riding horses in his first show season, thus underlining his special quality in an impressive way. He was awarded the dream score of 9.0 four times. Etienne completed his sport test for 4-year-old stallions in March 2023 with a final score of 8.55 as the second best in the test lot. Etienne is powerful like his sire, has a lot of freedom in the shoulders as well as high elasticity, always shows himself uphill and is equipped with a lot of thrust from the hindquarters. Due to his outstanding interior, he is also recommended for mares whose working attitude and rideability could be improved.
Etienne’s sire Escolar is again leading the current breeding value estimation of competitive dressage with a breeding index of 173 points. His offspring dominate the dressage arenas around the globe. Escolar, who is only 13 years old, already has 40 licensed sons and just as many State Premium mares – and that is by far not all: With 19 qualified or nominated young horses, Escolar 2022 recommended himself with the largest contingent of offspring of all stallions. Last year, Especially was the Bavarian State Champion of three-year-olds. Escamillo won the bronze medal at the World Championships for 7-year-old dressage horses in Ermelo, Ellis, who is the same age, won the Bundeschampionat Final, MSJ Encore was British Dressage Champion for seven-year-olds and the 8-year-old Elitist qualified for the Nuremberg Burg Cup Final. Eternity, Etienne’s full brother, collected international victories up to Intermédiaire with scores of over 78%.
Dam’s sire Sir Donnerhall I has written breeding history and not only looks back on more than 100 licensed sons, but also on 59 offspring at Grand Prix level.
Etienne’s dam Saphira was victorious in tests for young riding horses and produced one of the most talked about young horses in the advanced level with Eternity. Granddam Laureen, herself successful in dressage and eventing up to elementary level, produced 3 successful offspring.
Hann. Stamm 608, he produced among others the licensed stallions Derbyfavorit, Der Clou, Lord Lazuli T, Return T, Weinberg. The dam line produced, among others, the dressage elites Dablino/Anabel Balkenhol, Famos/ W. Biedermann, Wie Weltmeyer/ Emma Hindle (GBR) as well as the internationally successful Au Revoir 3/Heinrich-Hermann Engemann, Jeroen Dubbeldam (NL), Willi Melliger (SUI).
