Sandro Hit x Fürst Heinrich
San Heinrich RF (aka Henri) is a black, 16.3hh, German Oldenburg gelding. Very beautiful with a very good temperament. At his inspection in 2016, he was awarded Premium Foal, with a ribbon, Foal of Distinction, and Stallion Prospect. San Heinrich was the model of the cover photo for Warmbloods Today magazine May/June 2018.
San Heinrich RF was lightly started in the Spring of 2019, having been backed in the Fall of 2019. He then enjoyed a few months off for the winter of 2019/2020 to grow and mature. In the end of 2020, Josh Albrecht of Coalcyn Equestrian LLC started training Henri. They enjoyed a very successful show season in 2021, winning the Region 7 Championships at Training level. They even qualified to compete at The United States Dressage Finals in Lexington, KY. With a beautiful score of 72%, Henri won his Training Level JR/YR class there. Henri then continued his training at home and Josh started showing him at 3rd level in the late Spring of 2022. This went very well, and they won the JR/YR State Champion title at 3rd Level in July!
San Heinrich RF descends from the famous stallion Sandro Hit, a 1993, black stallion, who was approved for: Oldenburg, Hannover, Mecklenburg, Rhineland, South German Stud Books, Westphalia, Denmark, Finland, Italy, and Sweden. Sandro Hit has been ranked among the 10 best dressage stallions worldwide since 2012, and since 2017 has been in second place of the WBFSH ranking. He has produced the amazing amount of 190 licensed stallions and of his numerous daughters, 237 were awarded State Premium mares. Sandro Hit’s progeny have long been amongst the elite of dressage sport horses worldwide. Five of them competed at the 2016 Rio/BRA Olympic Games. Showtime FRH & Dorothee Schneider became team gold medalists and continued to place six in the Freestyle, and Sandro II & Christopher Burtan earned team bronze in Eventing. We could continue for a long time listing all the accolades for this amazing stallion.
San Heinrich’s dam Sire is the renowned Fürst Heinrich, a 1998 Westphalian branded, black stallion. Fürst Heinrich won his 30-day stallion test at Munster/Handorf in 2001. He then became the World Young Horse Champion in Verden, 2003. He sired multiple foal Champions in his first crop. The stallions Feinrich (2013), Fürst Romancier (2004), and Fürstenball (2006) are only three of the multiple Champion stallions sired by Fürst Heinrich. In addition, there are numerous second-generation progeny who represent elite dressage stallions and mares worldwide.
San Heinrich RF was sold in May 2023 and will continue his career with his loving new owner.
