His Highness was the unchallenged winner of the Hanoverian licensing in 2002 and was sold for the price record of 515,000 € to Leatherdale Farms/USA. Since that time, he has confirmed his reputation as an exceptional stallion. Despite his high demand as breeding stallion, he started his career as show dressage horse under the training of Klaus Balkenhol. In 2005, His Highness won several riding horse performance tests and later dressage performance tests up to elementary level and was placed ninth in the final of the Federal Championships of five- year old dressage horses. At the Danish licensing in 2005, he was proclaimed champion of the five-year-old dressage stallions. He was champion at his stallion performance test in Prussendorf in 2003, receiving a total score of 149.24. His outstanding quality was rewarded with the dressage index of 155.04, the highest score in this class. His Highness also knows how to please with his progeny: many offspring from his first two foal crops were chosen for the Verden auction program and were awarded champions at many breeding shows.

His Highness´ sire Hohenstein I belonged to the premium stallions at his licensing in 1993 in Neumünster and was reserve champion at his stallions performance test in 1994 at Adelheisdorf, where he received the highest dressage index of 148.29 from all 53 stallions in this class. He continued his career as champion of the Trakehner Riding Horse Championships in 1995 and won the Bronze Medal at the Federal Championships in Warendorf. At the age of seven, he has already competed successfully in dressage shows up to advanced level. In the meantime, he has become successful up to Intermediare II level. Hohenstein I is sire of more than 20 licensed stallions, one of them is the Grand Prix dressage horse Münchhausen TSF. Hohenstein I is Elite stallion and was proclaimed Trakehner Sire of the Year 2002. His Highness´dam, States Premium mare Daireen, was several times champion of her class at breeding shows. Daireen´s sire Donnerhall deserves the title “Sire of the Century” because of his incredible success as both breeding and sport stallion: two Gold Medals at World Championships with his rider Karin Rehbein, more than 110 licensed sons, 160 States Premium mares and 1.3 million € total prize money of his offspring in competition. His Highness´ grandmother, States Premium mare Flic Flac, produced the show dressage horse Corigo (Contucci), competing successfully up to medium level. Her half brother Donnerprinz (Donnerhall) was licensed and was successful up to Intermediare I. Her half sister, States Premium mare Dixie (Donnerhall), produced the licensed Don Jovi (De Nior). From the dam line of Wolgarune descend more than 25 licensed stallions, among them Adios I,II and II, Allround, Thronfolger and Walzerkönig as well as the Olympic horse Crisp, ridden by Ricky McMillan/AUS.

From the www.Leatherdalefarms.com website:

His Highness--a horse of a lifetime!

His Highness was the Hanoverian undisputed licensing champion of 2002.
We see in HH's foals his wonderful sweet temperament, beautiful top line and unbelievable movement. With the new turning 3 year olds we are seeing his tremendous rideablity.
 

At the Danish licensing in 2005, he was proclaimed champion of the four-year-old dressage stallions. He was champion at his stallion performance test in Prussendorf in 2003, receiving a total score of 149.24. His outstanding quality was rewarded with the dressage index of 155.04, the highest score in this class. His Highness also knows how to please with his progeny: many offspring from his first two foal crops were chosen for the Verden auction program and were awarded champions at many breeding shows. He now has 9 licensed sons. We are anxious to see his daughters as they start to come into the dressage rings around the world in this next year!
He has been under the watchful eye of Klaus Balkenhol in his training and we are indeed grateful for the correct and slow training he has done with him. Klaus has called His Highness the perfect horse...conformation, movement and mind!!!
Susanne Meyer started this magnificant horse at the stallion station at age 2 1/2 and she basically found she could just get on him and ride! Talk about rideability! Stefan Wolff next did a remarkable job in riding him to his first Bundeschampionate at age five.
At this time we are fortunate to have Inga Von Helldorff riding His Highness and they competed in the 6 year old finals at the Bundeschampionate in 2006. Highness is now doing PSG.
