Nine Premium stallions, thirty-one approved for the Hanoverian Stallion Approval 2022


The Hanoverian Stallion Licensing Committee licensed 31 stallions and named nine of them premium at the 2022 Hanoverian Master Stallion License in Verden.

While the Oldenburg society has postponed its licensing from November to January to give the young colts more time to grow and develop before they begin their preparation for licensing, the Hanoverian society has decided to postpone its ” Stallion market” of only two weeks, taking place at the beginning of November instead of mid-October.

The stallions were shown on hard surface and lunge on Thursday November 4th, followed by a presentation in hand and freedom on November 5th.

Young unproven bulls make their mark

The 2022 Hanoverian license collection was dominated by 2.5 year old colts who are sired by unproven young stallions, who are popular on the market and were showing their first production this year.

The the best represented stallion was Bon Courage (by Bon Coeur x Vivaldi x Rohdiamant) with 10 offspring accepted for certification. Only five ended up being presented but three of them were accepted and two named prime.

Blue Hors premium colt by Bonds x Dante Weltino

Three sons of Valdiviani (by Veneno x Fidertanz) were presented and all three were accepted, one of them was premium.

The Young Horse World Champion and Oldenburg Global Player License Champion OLD (by Grand Galaxy Win x Don Schufro) has had his first son approved. Oldenburg Licensing Champion Bonds (by Benicio x Sir Donnerhall) had three approved sons.

Lauries Crusador xx

The thoroughbred stallion Lauries Crusador xx, who was the Hanoverian Stallion of the Year 2006, deceased in 2013 but still has a huge impact on Hanoverian horse breeding.

At this year’s accreditation, no less than five of the accredited colts, one of which was premium, had Lauries Crusador xx as their grandfather or great-grandfather. Brood mares with the nobility and genes of this xx stallion continue to thrive and produce a decade later.
