Furstenball// A Brown Oldenburg Stallion.
Full Name: Furstenball
Breeding Summary: Furst Heinrich / Donnerhall / Classiker
Sire: Furst Heinrich
Height: 167 cm
After selling for the record price of 120,000 euro at the Vechta Foal auction in 2006, Furstenball was Oldenburg licensing champion in Vechta two years later and the winner of the 70-day Stallion Performance Test in 2009 with the highest overall score and a dressage index of 154.98 points. He was awarded a score of 9.0 and higher at least 16 times and he also received the highest score for rideability. He was proclaimed Hauptpremium Sieger in Oldenburg as a 4-year old with the best first crop of foals and Performance Test results
Furstenball continued his dressage career with success, winning the 2011 Oldenburg Regional Championships in Rastede, the 2011 German Young Horse Championship (Bundeschampionate) in Warendorf and was a finalist, with high placings at both the 2011 and 2012 World Young Horse Championships in Verden.
Fürstenball is descended from Oldenburg "champion bloodlines" which have produced two champion stallions in succession (Sieger Hit, Furstenball) as well as the second reserve champion Hot Spot in 2009. Fürstenball also boasts three state premium mares with elite status in his pedigree alongside Fürst Heinrich, the unforgettable winner of the World Championship of Five Year-Old Dressage Horses. He is also line bred to legendary dressage sire, Donnerhall, who adds an even higher concentration of performance genes to his pedigree. Classiker by Calypso II's genes and Nevado xx's thoroughbred blood add the final refining touch.
Furstenball's foals have lived up to expectation. At the 2010 Oldenburg Elite Foal auction, the top price was Feuerball (by Fürstenball x Akzenta (Akzent I)). This colt sold for 40,000 euro to Denmark. At the 2010 Westfalian Elite Foal Auction a Furstenball x Rohdiamant colt sold for 25,000 euro and became the fourth most expensive foal in a collection of 191 foals. 2006 World Equestrian Games silver medallist Andreas Helgstrand purchased Torveslettens Fifty Fifty, a Furstenball colt out of his World Young Horse Championship ride Torveslettens Stamina (by Stedinger). At the 2010 German Foal Championships the third placed foal was Margarethe Strohm's Furstenball colt out of the renowned mare Cileste IV (by Sandro Hit x Hill Hawk xx x Harald).
In 2011 Furstenball sired the Dressage Filly Champion in Denmark and the Dressage Colt Champion in Germany out of all warmblood breeds in the entire country of Germany. The champion colt scored 98 points at the Nationals in Lienen which is the highest score ever achieved by a foal!
Fürstenball's offspring are clearly stamped by the sire: they have beautiful faces and have the most amazing characters! He passes on a great, clear 4-beat walk, an uphill canter and an elastic trot. His offspring is known for being gentle, kind and well tempered.
