Furst Heinrich// A Black Westphalian Stallion.
Full Name: Furst Heinrich
Breeding Summary: Florestan I / Donnerhall / Weinberg
Sire: Florestan I
For a stallion that lived so briefly and died so young, Furst Heinrich continues to exert an extraordinary and disproportionately positive influence on the breeding of successful dressage horses. His brief competition and breeding performance is impeccable. Awarded a Premium Stallion at the NRW Licensing in 2000 at 2 years old, he went on to be Champion of his performance test in Münster-Handorf with a score of 8.82 and was Main Premium winner in Oldenburg.
Qualifying for the Bundeschampionship with a score of 8.5, he then competed successfully in his class and came 2nd in the Final. Finally, in 2003, as a five year old, he was crowned World Young Horse Dressage Champion with a score of 9.3.
In his short breeding career, he produced over 40 Licensed Stallions including many Premium Stallions, Champions and Reserve Champions. At the 2004 Oldenburger Licensing his first crop sons, Van the Man and First Forez, were awarded Champion and Reserve Champion respectively. n 2006 his son, Furstenball sold for the record price of 110,000EU at the Oldenburger Foal Auction. In 2007, the Licensed son, Froschkonig won the title of Oldenburger State Champion as a 3 year old.
The NRW Licensing in 2007 saw Reserve Champion awarded to a Fürst Heinrich son, and in 2008 Fürstenball was crowned Champion of the Oldenburger Licensing. He has also sired an impressive list of State Premium mares: Fantastica, Champion Mare of the 2005 Westphalen Elite Mare Show; Feh, 1d Premium Mare and Furstin, 1h Premium Mare at the 2005 Rheinland Elite Mare Show. two Fürst Heinrich daughters finished in the Brilliant Ring at the Oldenburger Elite Mare Show in Rastede; Herzfurstin was awarded 1d Premium at the 2006 Rheinland-Pfalz-Saar Elite Mare Show, and Famagusta, 1j at the Rheinland Mare Show. Our own Floria was awarded State Premium Mare in 2007 with a dressage score of 9.0. Most recently, Woodlander Farouche wowed the world when she won the World Breeding Championships in 2011 at five years old.
In 2010, five years after his death, his Dressage Breeding Value was 151, with reliability of 98%.
