The Hanoverian G Line

Written by on May 25, 2019 in News with 0 Comments

Gershwin is such a joy to ride, he his strong, willing to go with never ending endurance – a true example of the description in the Hannoveraner article.

Reprinted from The Hannoveraner Verband’s Hanoverian Breeding Program

“No other stallion line is that much associated with performance than the one of the Goldammer II / Flugfeuer II – son Goldfish II. Through his progeny Grande and Gotthard, he has added properties such as work ethic, power, toughness and expression of this Stallion line. Wherever our horses must perform at the highest level, wherever it is getting tough, this bloodline can be found in the pedigree. G-Blood is a necessity.

“The blood stands for properties such as energy, willingness to perform and – above all – for the physical capacity and stability to accomplish extraordinary performances. It would be desirable to start re-establishing these properties even more in our breed by using G-bloodlines. This was the intention of the Hanoverian Verband when it launched its G-initiative in 2007, targeting increasing breeder’s attention on performance properties and thus boosting breeding rates of stallions from this bloodline.

“With this initiative, this bloodline’s stallion offer was considerably enhanced for the breeders. International sport horses such as Goldfever I, Gem of India, or Gavi are available as well as younger stallions such as Grey Top or Goldfever II.

“This expanded stallion-offer as well as accompanying measures of the Celle National State Stud formed the basis to successfully boost breeding rates with stallions from this bloodline.

“The Hanoverian sport horse breed is inseparable linked with the G-bloodline.

“And this will not change in future.”

Comment from Vollrath:

You all can understand that we at Vollrath Stud are extremely pleased with our Stallion Gershwin.
Have a very close look at his pedigree and you will find the abovementioned names in his pedigree.

Gershwin is indeed everything the Hanoverian article states!
