Jumping Clash Challenge

Just when you thought we could not reinvent the wheel: Jumping Clash Challenge comes along and does exactly that – challenge you. Or perhaps not: this concept creates a sporting activity that is all inclusive, the armchair riders and warriors will be able to sit alongside the rider via headcam, aerial camera, micro camera in obstacles and cameras on the floor. No challenge required. These cameras will allow valuable insights into the background of horse care, veterinary inspections, and access to the all-important riding for warm up and competition. The viewer will be able to “Access All Areas” a badge normally reserved for grooms, riders, owners and vets. This is: ladies and gentleman, the new era of viewing jumping.

Desperados FRH Hanoverian Stallion of the Year

Desperados FRH was named the Hanoverian Stallion of the Year 2016. The 15-year-old stallion, bred by Herbert Schütt out of the state premium Wolkenstein II-mare Wie Musik was awarded his title at the stallion show in Verden. The breeder presented the stallion himself for approval, but was denied. Afterwards Desperados became the highest prized not-approved stallion of that year’s auction. In addition to Desperados, the mare Wie Musik also produced the hauptstutbuch mare Donna Musica (by Don Frederico), who in turn gave birth to Frascino (by Furst Wilhelm), the three-year-old stallion is already approved with multiple German studbooks. Desperados FRH currently holds the nr 1 spot in the FEI/WBFSH rankings for Dressage stallions, with eight approved sons; five of which are Hanoverian premium stallions. Desperados’ daughter Doris Day was also the 2010 Hanoverian mare champion.
