Econda [ photo gallery ]

Econda is a German import mare and finished a very good mare performance test in Germany, with an overall score of 8.02 and a 9 for her jumping performance. Econda is a State Premium candidate, and actually fulfills all requirements, only the correct paperwork needs to be processed. We are thrilled to have this exceptional mare in our herd, as she not only jumps very well, but moves with little efford in a most beautiful way and is able to pass this on to her offspring. Her diverse pedigree offers us to select from a wide range of possible stallion partners for her and so far, we've had a lot of success with this beautiful mare!

State Premium Candidate

The sire Espri is not only one of Hanover's most prominent and accomplished show jumper producers (e.g. Hugo Simon's international top show jumper E.T.), but surpisingly also sired a number of very good dressage horses. Lately, it is Nadine Capellmann's exceptional Elvis VA, who is winning the biggest shows in the world at Grand Prix dressage despite his youth and unusual "dressage" pedigree. Espri is a stallion from one of Hanover's most important and best sport horse lines, the Eiger I-Eisenherz line. Eiger I, who was Hanover's Stallion of the Year in 1999, is especially important as sire of the world class show jumper Esprit FRH (L. Nieberg/GER). Eiger I produced 35 St Pr mares in Hanover and left 7 approved sons, of which Espri was able to put this originally TB-founded line back into business in Hanover. The E/A line was originally founded by the TB stallion Adeptus xx (by Adonis xx out of Liane xx by Blenheim xx), who stood at stud in Celle for 10 years between 1894 and 1904. With the foundation of the A-line via Abglanz in the 50s, the Adeptus xx-line changed to the letter E, and is furthermore represented by Egmont, Eichendorff, the three full brother Eiger I-III, Eisenfarn, Eisenglanz, Eisprinz, Eisvogel, and Eistanz, among others.

Espri's dam Diplomatin, a highly decorated State Premium mare in Hanover, combines other Hanoverian foundation lines via Duft II and the TB-based line of Lukas-Lugano I-Der Löwe xx. Diplomatin also produced the Westfalian stallion Attache (by Artwig). With Der Löwe xx, one of Germany's best and most admired TB sport horse sires comes into the pedigree. Although Der Löwe xx kid were often said to be hard to ride because of their powerful manners and self-concious attitude, there is no denying that this line left a very strong mark on the breed, and managed to produce international performance horses for the top levels in dressage and show jumping.

On the dam sire, we find the dressage stallion Walt Disney, a half brother to Hanover's major sire Weltmeyer (both were sired by World Cup I). He is also a half brother to the important dressage sire Warkant I. Walt Disney has long been proven as an excellent brood mare sire, and the influence of World Cup I via the dam of a horse can't be valued high enough. In the case of our Econda, that pedigree is continued with Trakehner refinement blood through Trapper by Traugott, who was a son of the Celle State Stud stallion Trautmann. That T-line is no longer represented at Celle today, but in the Trakehner breed, stands for the approved stallions Tanzmeister I and II (both by EH Caprimond) as well as the FEI dressage stallion Traumdeuter. Trautmann also sired the grand dam of the champion stallion Guter Stern and the reserve champion stallion Guter Planet.

In the falling dam line, we further have the much valued influence of Hanover's top stallion Gotthard (though his son Genever), and more TB blood through his dam Freia xx by Alpsee xx.
