HIGH KNIGHT was purchased in Germany at the Neumunster Trakehner Approvals in October, 2002. He was being sold as a 3 year old riding horse and impressed us with his calm nature, swinging movement, wonderful balance, and of course, his good looks! After his purchase (thank you Maren!), he continued light training at the Horstein stud until his export to Canada in the spring of 2003.

HIGH KNIGHT is in training with Christine Blackie in Vancouver. His first show was at Thunderbird June 2-4th. He did very well in his tests, showing at Training level 3 and 4 and First level 1, with scores from 65- 72%, and was Reserve Training level champion. He also scored 8 for gaits. His next show will be Amherst in the beginning of July.

HIGH KNIGHT is coming along very nicely in his training, and is quiet and easy to handle in the barn. A top prospect for the dressage ring.

Dam Line
High Day
was the best 4 year old at the Mare performance Test in 1992, where she was test ridden by Ingrid Klimke. (Her sire is the 1977 champion stallion Amadeus, a beautiful, yet heavier bay stallion descending from the immortal Ibikus line). (High Day's dam, Humanita, is a full sister to High Noon, Champion Trakehner stallion in 1981.)

Amadeus was the champion of his Approvals in 1977, and lived at the world famous Horstein stud. He was an excellent dressage competitor with an outstanding quiet temperament and was also used as the riding horse of the farm owner’s family. Amadeus was a “mare producer”. He had a great number of excellent daughters, such as Eliza V who received marks of 9, 8, 8, 10, 9. His most famous daughter is the mare Freundin, who is the dam of 2 champion stallions Farinelli (1996) and Freudenfest (1999), both by Tolstoi. AMADEUS's sire is the outstanding performance stallion KASSIBER. He stood at the Langels' Haemelschenburg Stud after being selected as a Class 1 stallion at his Approvals, and being Class 1 at his stallion Performance Test. After producing some excellent horses in Germany, he was sold to Australia, where he was Australian Event Champion in 1983.

KASSIBER's sire is the immortal Trakehner stallion IBIKUS.

Ibikus was renowned for passing on his amazing gaits and impeccable movements. Ibikus was four times winner of the German riding horse championship, and 1st at his stallion performance test. He was successful in dressage competitions up to the FEI level. In 1976 Ibikus was sold to Denmark as an improver for the Danish warmblood and had a huge impact there. Ibikus is the sire of 12 approved sons. Known as a “marker” stallion, Ibikus genetic traits are responsible for the performance capabilities of sport horses all over Europe.
