Sandro Hit | Fürst Heinrich
San Heinrich RF (Henri) is a black, 16’3h, German Oldenburg gelding. At his inspection in 2016, he was awarded Premium Foal, with a ribbon, Foal of Distinction, and Stallion Prospect. San Heinrich is a beautiful and correct four year old. He was lightly started in the Spring of 2019, having been backed in the Fall of 2019. San Heinrich has enjoyed a few months off for the winter of 2019/2020 to grow and mature. We are very excited about this horse and his limitless potential. His three above par gaits are lovely to see in motion. He is quite forward and rhythmic with wonderful elasticity throughout his body. San Heinrich has good ground manners, loves to be groomed and bathed. He is excellent for the veterinarian and holds still for the farrier. San Heinrich was the cover photo for Warmbloods Today magazine May/June 2018.
San Heinrich RF descends from the famous Sandro Hit, a 1993, 16’3h, jet black stallion, who is 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. This stallion has produced 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/AUS earned team bronze in Eventing. We could continue with accolades for this amazing stallion.
San Heinrich’s dam Sire is the renowned Fürst Heinrich, a 1998 Westphalian branded, 16’3h, black stallion. Fürst Heinrich won his 30 stallion test at Munster/Handorf in 2001. This stallion became the World Young Horse Champion in Verden, 2003. From his first crop of offspring, he sired multiple foal Champions. 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 enjoyed a very successful 2021 show season, winning the Region 7 Championships, ridden by Josh Albrecht of Coalcyn Equestrian. San Heinrich RF was nominated to compete at The United States Dressage Finals in Lexington, KY. With a score of 72%, Henri won his Training Level JR/YR class. Henri will continue his training and conditioning in 2022 and will continue his show career in 2022.
