Heirloom is sired by our Elite Hanoverian stallion Harvard and is a modern, typey dressage colt. He has active, elastic gaits and an effortless way of moving. He has long, straight legs and a beautiful head with an uphill neck attachment.
Dam Sandro's Sunrise was a Premium foal and was entered into the Main Mare Book of the German Oldenburg Verband in 2015 with good scores including straight 7.5's for her Trot, Walk and Neck, and straight 7's for Comformation, Head, Saddle Postion, Brood and Sex Type, Overall Impression and Development. Her sired Sandro's Heir has had a wonderful sport career and is currently competing at Grand Prix. He hails from the prestigous Rudilore dam-line. Her dam Verb,Pr.St. Sudorme is a fantastic mare with a solid conformation, wonderful gaits and kind temperament. She was bred and raised in Germany at the renowned stud farm of Ludwig Kathmann. She successfully completed her Mare Performance Test in 2004 at Vechta, Germany to obtain her Verband's Premium Stute (Mare) title from the German Oldenburg Verband. Sudorme has become an important cornerstone of Pangaea's program producing excellent riding horses and fantastic daughters. Her sire Dormello was the Champion of the 1999 Oldenburg Stallion Licensing. Dam sire Donnerschwee is a successful Grand Prix competitor and respected as one of the most powerful Donnerhall sons in Germany and scores a significant 159 index points for improving dressage ability. Sudorme’s pedigree is exceptionally interesting. She is one of two mares ever bred in Germany with the particular bloodline combination of Dormello and Donnerschwee, which features line-breeding to both Donnerhall and Freiherr. The other mare, Donna Carina is mother to SPH Dante (Welfenadel x Dormello x Donnerschwee) who broke the world record auction price for a dressage horse, selling for 2.8 million Euros at the PSI December 2014 auction in Germany. Year after year she brings us top quality offspring with amazing temperments and ample talent undersaddle.
