“Estival Star” is an imported 3-year-old German Hannoverian gelding of international caliber. “Ernie” has three exceptional gaits with an obvious talent for passage and piaffe. He is the outcome of impeccable breeding. His sire “Estobar NRW” is a premium stallion who was champion at his licensing test with the highest marks. “Estobar”s first crop alone already produced two licensed stallions. One of his sons , “Escolar”, won the Bundeschampionat, the highest honor for a young German horse, with unprecedented scores in 2012 and 2013. Another son, “Equitaris” was the winner of this year’s young stallion Bundeschampionat. Both “Estobar” and “Escolar” are being trained by one of Germany’s most respected riders, Hubertus Schmidt.  “Ernie”s dam is also a highly decorated State Premium Mare by “Stedinger”, one of the most famous sons of the legendary “Sandro Hit”.

As a foal “Ernie” was the winner of the 2011 foal show in Sottrum, Germany. He was one of the highlights of the 2011 Hannoverian Elite Foal Auction in Verden in August 2011. The same year he was imported to the USA and was carefully raised in the hills of Central Pennsylvania. He has been in professional training from the start. His first competition was Dressage at Devon 2014 where he won the the Materiale Class for 3-year-old colts and geldings.

Apart from his remarkable talent for dressage, he charms those who meet him with an alert but calm attitude which is second to none in a three-year-old. His willingness to work also stands out. And, of course, he stands for the farrier, the vet and loads easily. “Ernie” is a young horse of great promise who is looking for a kind rider who will take him to great success at the highest levels.
