About the sire: Spörcken

From Dreamscape Farms’ website.

He was everyone’s darling and sold for the top price at the 2010 stallion market in Verden. 

He is an impressive mover and every single movement ripples through his whole body with elasticity and force. Also equipped with an awesome walk it still was his extraordinary trot that opened the hearts of his audience. In addition to that he comes with an uncomparably good pedigree. The dam line of Norodina has already produced many dressage stars like Borsalino ridden by Heike Kemmer and Le Mont d´Or ridden by Anja Plönzke which both compete at the Grand Prix-level. Bon Bonaparte ridden by Stefan Sandbrink starts successfully in Intermediaire tests. She even has produced some well-known show jumpers like Stamm B & H Medicott and So Clever, both ridden by Felix Haßmann and successful up to  CSI and S*.

His father Sir Donnerhall I also was very successful in his early years. He was Reserve Champion of the Oldenburger licensing in 2003 in Vechta and won the 70 day test in Adelheisdorf in 2005 with a record score of 163 in the dressage index. AFTER Afterwards he won the Oldenburger regional championships in 2005 and the qualification test fort he world championships for young dressage horses in Verden in 2006 where he ended up being reserve champion with a score of 9,2. In addition to that he won the Bundeschampionat for 5year old dressage horses in the same year. Meanwhile more than 40 of his sons got licensed.

His dam’s sire Lauries Crusador xx produced more than 70 licensed stallions including famous sires like Londonerry and Laida. Many successful sports hores fathered by this blood stallion can be found like for example Lesotho/Ellen Schulten-Baumer, Le Bo/Carola Koppelmann and Le Primeur/Line Wettstein/SUI. Further he produced about 182 state premium mares. 

Spörcken completed his perfomance test in 2011 in Adelheidsdorf, and received an impressively high score of 165 points in the dressage index.

His oldest offspring are now out and winning in sport. Sporcken has a very high % of state premium mares,  as well he has auction foals and riding horses, as well as licensed stallions, and bundeschampionat participants.
