Fantastic combination of Fuerstenball and Sandro Hit stacked in this colt's pedigree make him a sure fire dressage prospect.

Fletcher is an exceptional two yr old ready to start light work soon. He LOVES to be worked with. He spends his time partially turned out during good weather and in during bad weather. Quiet in the stall. Ties, stands well for farrier. He gets along exceptionally well with other horses and has become the babysitter of choice for weanlings and yearlings letting them eat with him and generally being a good big brother. He is a truly kind horse. Typical of Fuerstenball offspring, he came into the world saying "glad to meet you" and is personable and easy. We've bred four Fuerstenball foals and all have had the "done this before" attitude with whatever you ask.

Fletcher's Sire: (From Superior Equine Sires) Fuerstenball 2022 top Hanoverian stallion for type, and number one on the FN and Hanoverian breed value, with a 175 dressage breed value.
2018 Danish Warmblood Stallion of the Year
According to Dr. Ludwig Christmann, “The first foals of the dressage Bundeschampion from 2011 were born in 2010. His very high dressage breed value of 175 is already very well secured by a certainty of 95 percent. This means that a large amount of information from his offspring is already available. Eighty-nine daughters have already been performance-tested including 54 in Hannover. Ten sons completed the 30-day test and six a performance test including top stallions like Farrell (Breeding Farm Blue Hors), Finest from the Breeding Farm W.M. and the Bundeschampion and Hanoverian champion of riding horses from 2015, Fürsten-Look. By the end of 2014, this stallion had completed an outstanding 30-day test in Schlieckau with dressage-related scores between 9 and 10. His success as the outstanding Bundeschampion is not recorded in the breed value estimation,since riding horse classes do not count while a victory in a dressage horse class at the A level does. 132 descendants already competed in elementary classes, which include dressage horse classes up to the L-level. 106 returned home with at least one ribbon – that already is well-secured data! We now have to wait, if the Fürstenball descendants will fulfill the expectations at the upper level of dressage. His heredity of type is also outstanding. He heads on the list of the current producers in the Hanoverian Yearbook Stallions in the breed value for type with a value of 171.”
Fuerstenball is a unique stallion with a maximum lightness and elasticity. He embodies the modern dressage horse. He is one of the most popular dressage breeding stallion in Germany and Denmark and has come in favor for US breeders as well.
After selling for a record price of 110,000 euros as foal at auction, he was celebrated as Champion of the Oldenburg Stallion Licensing and was the stallion performance test winner in 2008 with a sensational dressage index score of 154,98 points. Fuerstenball received a 9.0 or higher a total of 16 times and a perfect 10.0 for rideability. In 2011 became the Bundeschampion of the five year-old dressage horses receiving a 9.5 for trot and overall impression, 10.0 for walk, and a 9.0 each for canter and submissiveness. Fuerstenball then proceeded to win the championship with a score of 9.4.
Fuerstenball has produced 84 licensed stallions, including Fuersten-Look/Isabel Freese/NOR: Champion Stallion and German Champion, who came third in the Burg Cup, Fuerst Zonik PS: Champion Stallion, Fuerst Fabrice: Champion Stallion placed third at the Regional Championships, Follow Me OLD: Oldenburg Champion Stallion, Regional Champion and victorious at advanced (S) level, Facilone FRH: Hanoverian Champion and participant at the World Championships for young dressage horses, Faradai OLD: Regional Champion, Fürst Oliver: Hanoverian Champion and placed at the German Championships, and Fürst Magic: Westphalian Champion and victorious at Inter I level.
Other offspring are conquering the international scene, such as the double Young Riders European Championships gold medallist Four Seasons FRH, ridden by Alexa Westendarp. Fürst Sinclair/Elke Philipp came fourth at the Para-Equestrian European Championships in Rotterdam/NED. Also internationally successful is Torveslettens Fifty-Fifty/Ekaterina Podlytkina/RUS.
Fuerstenball also produced Fior: German and Regional Champion as well as finalist at the World Championships for young dressage horses, Festina PS: German Champion and Regional Vice Champion, Feingefühl: German and Regional Champion and Hanoverian Reserve Champion Mare, Fiesta Danza OLD: Oldenburg Champion Mare, silver and bronze medalist at the German Championships and double Regional Champion, Fine Lady: Hanoverian Champion Mare, Fünf Sterne: Oldenburg Champion Mare and Regional Champion, Flora de Mariposa OLD: Reserve Champion Mare, Regional Champion and German Vice Champion, as well as Feine Bella, the current Westphalian Champion Mare. He is the sire of Adequan/USEF/Junior Hunter National Champion, East, Arabesque.
In 2013, Fuerstenball won his first advanced (S) level classes and Prix St. George tests. During the Oldenburg Stallion parade he was celebrated as the VTV-Dressage Stallion of the Year. In 2011 he gained title of the Bundeschampion of the Five Year-Old Dressage horses, and in 2016 was named Elite Sire of Danish Warmblood society.
Fuerstenball's successes do not happen by chance. His sire, Fuerst Heinrich, himself was a dressage World Champion as a young horse and presented one exceptional mare named Woodlanders Farouche, the 2011 World Champion for Young Dressage Horses. Fuerst Heinrich has also produced 48 stallions and, so far, 38 advanced (S) level dressage horses after just a short time in breeding. The dam line is especially a class of its own with products like Oldenburg champion stallion Sieger Hit, second reserve champion Hot Spot and numerous high-priced foals. Fuerstenball is also line bred to legendary dressage sire Donnerhall, and this with Holsteiner and thoroughbred genes, adds the final refining touch in the next generations of his pedigree.

Fletcher's Dam: Phoebe VH is a product of our favorite mare line we started with in 1996. Her heavily Holsteiner influenced pedigree on dam side makes her the ideal broodmare to add substance, bone and correctness to her offspring. She was the third of 3 Sandro Hit offspring from her dam Natalie. Phoebe was started here as a 3 yr old and went easily into work walk, trot and canter both in the arena and outside on the farm. Video here: https://youtu.be/5zcwynNdi44 She was Premium and Site Champion at her Oldenburg inspection and is also Premium in the Westphalian book. She has produced only Premium foals everytime and is an absolute joy of a mare to be around. She passes her easy going temperament on to her foals as well as her exceptional talent and looks. Her oldest foal is also by Fuerstenball and is a Premium and SiteChampion mare with Westphalian NA.
