1999 - Awarded title of Elite Trakehner Stallion (E.H)
Sire of the 2001 Silver Medallist at the World Young Dressage Horse Championships - Munchhausen
Sire of the 2000 Vice Federal
Champion - Habitus.
Hohenstein I was the vice champion of the 1994 stallion performance test at Adelheidsdorf, the 1995 Trakehner Riding Horse Champion as well as third at the Federal Championships. He won his first advanced dressage competition at the age of seven in 1998. In the meantime he has had wins and high placements up to Intermediaire 1 and Grand Prix.
Hohenstein was a hit from the start as a breeding stallion. He has proven to be homozygotically dark coloured, with his progeny overwhelmingly inheriting his black colour (65%). His tally of approved sons has grown to 12 including the champion stallion Munchausen. Hohenstein was successful at the 2000 Federal Championships with four offspring qualifying and the vice champion Habitus who was later sold for 320,000 DM via the Verden auction. In 2000 at the Equilibra Auction at Towerlands Equestrian Centre, Essex, England the stallion High Fashion by Hohenstein was sold for 85,000 Pound or DM 280,000. According to Hoofs and Horns this was the highest price ever paid at a non-thoroughbred auction in England. The FN breeding values regularly list Hohenstein as a top procreator of dressage horses and this year he was ranked fourth. According to the Hanoverian Verband in 2000 he was the second best producer of dressage horses with an index of 183, the fifth best transmitter of type with a score of 161 and equal third on the breed values competition list with a score of 145%. In 1999 he was awarded the distinction of Elite Stallion by the Trakehner association due to his outstanding performance in both breeding and sport.

At the 2002 Trakehner Stallion Licensing in Neumuenster, Germany, Hohenstein has been awarded the title of 2002 Trakehner Stallion of the Year. Bred by Harry Bartsch from Goettingen, Germany, in 1991, Hohenstein is by Caprimond out of Helena XIV (by Matador x Grimsel). As a two year old stallion, Hohenstein got the premium title at the licensing. As a three-year old he finished second in the Stallion Performance Test in Adelheidsdorf. He was a finalist in the five-year old division at the German Bundeschampionate, and continued to be trained up to Intermediaire II level by Andreas Platzdasch.
His most famous licensed descendent is without a doubt Muenchausen. The bay stallion, owned by Gestut Wiesenhof, became second under Fie Skarsoe as a six-year old at the 2001 World Championships for Young Dressage Horses in Verden. Hohenstein constantly produces top sport horses that are sold for high prices at the Elite Hanoverian auctions in Verden. At the 2002 Hanoverian Stallion Licensing, president of the American Hanoverian Society, Douglas W. Leatherdale, purchased the approved black Hohenstein x Donnerhall offspring (pictured) for 515.000,- €
