May 22nd, 2009:

 Special Edition rocked at the horse show in Germany. He was a really good boy and showed like a pro against a big field.  He won his riding horse class with a super score of 8.3! Wow, that’s quite a huge accomplishment, congratulations, this is super news!

Here is a very special horse. He is superb in type, quality and willingness to work, all in one package. He is a dream horse for the ambitioned dressage rider. Special Edition (barn name Sammy) is not only breathtakingly beautiful and elegant, he also has quality movement and a heart of gold. He was started in summer 2008 (as he turned 3 in June) and was ridden inside and outside.


His famous sire Sandro Hit absolved his stallion performance test in Medingen in 1997 and in 1999 he became federal champion six-year old dressage horses as well as world champion juvenile horse in Arnheim. He has meanwhile been trained up to advanced class. Right from the outset, Sandro Hit set standards not only in sport, but also in breeding. His first crops of foals are convincing by their exceptionally aesthetic imprint of type as well as their outstanding motions. His son Sandrit was the 1999 approval winner in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, while Sommerhit was runner-up in Berlin-Brandenburg and Sandro Ace became vice-champion in Oldenburg . Sunny Boy in turn, was awarded a premium in Oldenburg , whereas Sommeliere likewise was approved in Oldenburger in 1999. In the year 2000, Sandro Hit made the headlines once more: His Brandenburg bred daughter Poetin won the Federal Championship of three year old mares and geldings under Hans-Heinrich Meyer zu Strohen. A number of his offspring attained peak prices at different German auction sites, including his daughter Starlet, who at DM 140,000 was the top lot of the collection of broodmares at the 2000 Vechta spring auction. On top of that, two Sandro Hit progeny were awarded the desired status “approved” at the Oldenburg approval, as well as at the NRW approvals. In 2001 he sired the Federal champion and two vice champions.

His dam is a Statespremium mare by the famous Hohenstein, another one of our favorite stallions. 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 color (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.



Special Edition himself is a horse with an excellent hind leg and generous freedom in the shoulders. He has a huge uphill canter and jumps through and carries himself very well on his hind end already. He is forward in the trot with dynamic movement and swings through his body. Just back under saddle, he starts already to learn shoulder in and he is working on his trot lengthening. He is very willing to learn, a horse which is fun every day for every rider. He has a rhythmic walk with a good overstride.

This youngster is the dream for each trainer. It is rather rare to find a horse with all these attributes in one. With the correct education, he will find his way all the way to the top. Dreams could come true with this young gentleman. He is a horse, able to make others jealous and definitely to turn heads. He is a big charmer, able to capture the attention of the onlookers. He is ok to be cross tied, he loves his showers, the solarium time and travels just like a pro. He loves to get his face rubbed with a towel after his work sessions. One of his favorite activities is to cuddle with his handler.
