Pik Bube was himself a successful sire in his own right, but more importantly he became one half of the magic equation: Donnerhall x Pik Bube - for the overwhelming majority of successful Donnerhall progeny are out of mares by Pik Bube.

It was a great surprise when the head of the State Stud Celle, Christian von Steglin failed to include Pik Bube in the ‘Celle Lot’ {the state stud director has first pick of the successful young stallions} and let him go to the glamorous Grönwohldhof studfarm - where he formed a hugely successful partnership with resident trainer, Herbert Rehbein. They won 11 out of 12 advanced classes in their only competition season in 1980.

Pik Bube’s sire, Pik König is considered the most important son of the famous Thoroughbred sire of showjumpers, Pik As xx. Pik König sired 19 Approved sons and 22 State Premium mares. His offspring - such as Pirol 37 - were mainly successful in showjumping. With a dressage index of 126, and a jumping index of 131, Pik König had an overall rating of 129. His sire, Pik As xx stood at the State Stud Celle from 1953-69, where he sired four approved sons.

Pik As was only 157 cm tall but according to Claus Schridde in his survey Thoroughbred sires in Hanover (II} in Z Magazine, June/July 2005 ( http://www.zangersheide.com/ } "far from tall, Pik As looked great and always made a deep impression at his presentations. At stud at Hohnstof in the Arlenburger Elbe polder, the superbly bred female stock in that region offered him enormous opportunities which he did not waste. With top class progeny such as Pesgö under Helga Köhler and Porta Westfalica ridden by Hartwig Steenken, he soon earned a good reputation as a showjumping horse producer. He hardly produced any dressage horses. State stud Celle had kept three sons from the last seasons in his career: the dark brown Pik König, the chestnut, Pik Junge and the grey Pikör... Pik König... developed into a top-class showjumping horse producer. His sons Pik Bube I and II even produced many dressage horses."

Pik Bube’s dam, Franka also produced the full-brother, Pik Bube II and the advanced dressage horse, Poseidon 30. Her dam, Dohlenfurstin, was an international showjumper under the name Daniela. Dohlenfurstin is also the dam of Grand Prix showjumper, Prince Charming.

Franka is by Frustra II was a crucially important dam sire in the Hanoverian studbook, stallions such as Donkosak, Drosselklang I & II, Goldfalk, Graphit, Gralsritter, Imperial, Löwenstein, Piaff, Wachmann I & II, Webefunk, and many more, were out of mares by Frustra II.

Pik Bube I sired performers in all disciplines. His daughter, Pikantje was Federal German riding horse champion of 1981, and Pik Bube’s Girl won the 1990 Federal Mare Show in Verden. Pik Primaire, Pik Royal were amongst the 49 of his offspring that were successful in advanced dressage, while 19 showjumpers achieved advanced level. Perhaps the most successful of his stallion sons has been Piaster who stands in Bavaria, Pik Labonics has been a successful sire for the Westfaliens, and Pommery has produced some useful progeny in Hanover. His son, Pik Noir competed successfully in dressage and was the sire of Prinz Paul, who placed 3rd in the six year old Dressage Championship at the 2001 Bundeschampionate.

As a brood mare sire, Pik Bube has been a phenomenon, especially when teamed with Donnerhall: Davignon, Don Primero, Don Schufro, Donatelli, Donnerbube, Dream of Glory, Duntroon - all bred on that magic cross Donnerhall/Pik Bube.

At the height of his powers, at the age of 18, Pik Bube suddenly broke down under his rider and died almost immediately - his was a great loss.

Pik Bube was a genius on the international dressage scene with a series of overwhelming successes. He's also well known as the sire of many licensed and proven young stallions, and it is through him that the grandiose thoroughbred blood of Pik As XX exerts much of its influence.

He was undoubtedly the best known son of the outstanding Celle State Stud, Pik König, who in turn was the finest son of Pik As XX. Under Herbert Rehbein, Pik Bube won 11 of the 12 advanced dressage tests that he competed in. His licensed sons are asked for all over Germany, and his progeny have been getting record prices at auctions such as PSI- Ankum, Vechta, and Verden. You will find his offspring competing in dressage to Grand Prix and Jumping to the International S-Level. Pik Bube was licensed in Verden in 1975, and was Vice-Champion at his 100-Day Test at Adelheidsdorf in 1976. He has sired 16 licensed sons and 28 state's premium mares.

Als Otto Schulte-Frohlinde sich Mitte der 70er Jahre entschloss, einen Hannoveranerhengst auf seinem Grönwohldhof zu stationieren, fiel seine Wahl auf den schwarzbraunen Pik Bube I. So recht hatte keiner verstanden, warum der damalige Celler Landstallmeister Dr. Christian Freiherr von Stenglin den antrittsstarken Schwarzbraunen nicht für das "Celler Lot" gefesselt hatte. Pik Bube I legte den Grundstein für die heute europa- und weltweit bekannte Hengsthaltung auf dem Grönwohldhof, der in Schleswig-Holstein unweit von Hamburg liegt. Pik Bube I entstammte dem ersten Fohlenjahrgang des Pik König, seine Mutter Franka war eine Tochter des Frustra II, der in ungewöhnlich intensiver Weise als Muttervater bedeutender Leistungsvererber eine Sonderstellung in der hannoverschen Zucht einnahm. Spitzenhengste wie Donkosak, Drosselklang I und II, Goldfalk, Graphit, Gralsritter, Imperial, Löwenstein, Piaff, Wachmann I und II, Werbefunk und viele andere stammten aus Frustra II-Müttern. Pik Bube I absolvierte die Hengstleistungsprüfung als Reservesieger und machte den Grönwohldhof zu einem Wallfahrtsort für Züchter aller Verbände. Alle wollten das Wunder sehen, das dort geschah. Der trittgewaltige Schwarzbraune gedieh unter Herbert Rehbein zu einem Dressurpferd der Extraklasse. 1980, in ihrer einzigen Turniersaison, waren sie bei zwölf Starts in Klasse S elfmal Sieger.

In seiner Vererbung blieb er indessen nicht auf eine Disziplin fixiert und setzte in vielerlei Belangen Akzente. So war die Tochter Pikantje 1981 Bundeschampionesse des Deutschen Reitpferdes, Pik Bubes Girl 1990 Siegerin der Bundesstutenschau in Verden. Im Viereck machten Pik Primaire, Pik Royal und zahlreiche weitere Karriere. 49 seiner Kinder gingen erfolgreich schwere Dressuren, 19 Springpferde verzeichneten S-Platzierungen im Parcours. Diese Vielseitigkeit in der Vererbung zeichnete auch seinen zwei Jahre jüngeren Bruder Pik Bube II aus, der Landbeschäler in Celle war und immer etwas im Schatten des älteren stand. Von den Hengstsöhnen haben sich der in Bayern eingesetzte Piaster, ferner Pik Labionics, Pik Noir, Pik Senior, Pik Solo, Placido, Plaisir d'Amour und auch Prinz Miro deutlich profilieren können. Mit 18 Jahren trat Pik Bube I im September 1991 völlig überraschend von der züchterischen Bühne ab. Der stets vitale Beschäler brach beim Training unter dem Reiter plötzlich zusammen und war nur wenige Augenblicke später tot. Er war einer der bedeutendsten Privathengste mit hannoverschem Brand.
