Welcome to North America, Feinrich!

Fürst Heinrich x Sir Donnerhall I

David Burke and Pangaea Farms are excited to welcome Feinrich to Canada!

Feinrich’s breeding is very special. Through his sire Fürst Heinrich, the paternal line of the great Furioso II is combined with that of probably the most important mare in modern Oldenburg breeding history, El.St. Gesina.

In 2015, Feinrich was the glowing winner of his licensing and completed his stallion performance test with flying colors. In 2018, he won young horse dressage competitions of his age group, qualified for the German championships, has since achieved top placings in intermediate (M**) dressage competitions with Brandi Roenick/USA.

Feinrich produced the 2021 Oldenburg Champion Mare and Regional Champion Faraglioni OLD (ds. Dormello). In addition to Faraglioni’s success, Feinrich’s daughter Nizelle (ds. Everdale) made it to the finals at the KWPN Elite Mare Show in the Netherlands in 2021. Numerous youngsters from his first generations of foals recorded victories and placings in young horse competitions. Impressively, Feinrich has six licensed sons to date.

His sire Fürst Heinrich was Champion Stallion in 2001, winner of the premium in 2002, World Champion of five-year-old dressage horses in 2003, and has produced over 50 licensed stallions, including Fürstenball, licensing and premium champion, German champion and elite sire as well as Fürst Romancier, premium winner.

His dam El.St. Gesina is a legendary producer of top stallions and mares, including For Romance I OLD (Oldenburg Champion Stallion, Main Premium winner, Burg Cup finalist, VTV Dressage Stallion and successful in Grand Prix), For Romance II (premium stallion placed in international Grand Prix competitions at only seven years old), and For Romance III de la Gesse (licensed stallion). When crossed with Fürst Heinrich, Gesina produced our Champion Stallion Feinrich and the Oldenburg Champion Mare Fürstin Gesine, who produced the licensed stallions Visino PS (by Vitalis) and Montrachet PS (by Morricone I). Bred to De Niro, Gesina produced the licensed stallion Desino; bred to Governor, she produced the licensed stallion Golden Romance Malleret PS; and bred to Bordeaux, she produced Mount St. John Best of All, British Dressage Champion and placed up to Small Tour level, who is the dam of Best of Mount St. John OLD (by Fürst Romancier), Reserve Regional Champion and placed fifth at the German Championships. Gesina’s daughters produced the licensed stallions Sebastino PS (by Secret), Go for Romance PS (by Governor) and the Mecklenburg Champion Stallion Viva Vitalis (by Vitalis).

Feinrich – Conformation

Feinrich’s grand-dam, Gesine, also produced the Reserve Champion Vivaldi’s Schufro (by Vivaldi) and Amadeus de l’Aubois (by Der Designer), who sired in France. Her daughter Sadira de Malleret (by Sir Donnerhall I) produced Helen Langehanenberg’s mare, who is victorious at advanced (S) level, Zaeta de Malleret (by Zonik).

In the third generation is Don Schufro, Danish Champion and Team bronze winner at the Olympic Games in Hong Kong/HKG in 2008 with Andreas Helgstrand.

Feinrich is WFFS N/N (not a carrier). Feinrich will be available for breeding mid-May, after completing his quarantine and CEM testing in the United States.

Pangaea Farms would like to extend a very special thank you to Sebastian Rohde, the new General Manager of the Holsteiner Stallion Ltd, for facilitating this purchase. Over the years, Sebastian has become a good friend of Pangaea Farms, and Feinrich is the third stallion Pangaea Farms has acquired through his mediation.
