Dynamit is the foundation sire of Vollrath Hanoverians. He was voted the Horse and Pony Sport Horse Super Sire in 1997 and 1998.
A black 16.3hh horse, Dynamit was born in 1981 and died in November, 1998.
Dynamit underwent his performance testing in 1984 in Adelheidsdorf. He was placed 18th of 70 with a total index of 114.04 points. He was imported to New Zealand in 1992.
Dynamit, a B-Grade Showjumper in his own right, was retired to stud at age six. The photo at left shows him jumping in September 1991 in Germany just a few months before arriving in NZ.
His progeny were excellent jumping and dressage horses. At the NZ Dressage Championships 2000 the following six Dynamit offspring achieved placings in their grades: Damask, Dauntless, Dyson, Devastation, Doonebaggo and of course Dominik T.
With rider Stephanie Tovey, Dominik T was re-selected in the ID Squad, and Stephanie was named Dressage Young Rider of the Year at the Awards Dinner by popular vote.
1974, Brown 16.2hh. HLP 1977: 104 // 16/28.
He scored in the ’90 stallion ratings 5th in showjumping, 8th in dressage.
1962 blk/brown, 16.1 hh HLP 1965 70.0 // 13/14
At the licensing he was a very doubtful candidate scraping in because of his pedigree — what foresight as he is nowadays undoubtedly the multi-millionaire via his progeny performance.
