A total of one three-year-old and 32 two-year-olds were presented for the Hannoveraner jumping stallion licensing. 18 stallions received a positive result, seven of them were awarded a premium. The top price of 120,000 Euros was achieved by a stallion from the dam line of Lars Nieberg's Olympic Champion Esprit FRH.

The most expensive premium stallion was a Comme il faut NRW/Quality son (breeder and exhibitor: Tessa Pfeil, Elmlohe) with seemingly unlimited potential, who will find a new home at a stallion station in Lower Saxony for 115,000 Euros. The head number one, the already three-year-old grey by Cornado/Antaeus (breeder: Wilhelm Harling, Sottrum, exhibitor: Gestüt Eichenhain GmbH, Varste), who has already shown outstanding performance under saddle, will move into a box in the stable of his full brother Büttner's Minimax at Janne-Friederike Meyer-Zimmermann for 75,000 Euros. 107,000 Euros were invested by the Dutch station VDL-Stud for a talented bay by For Treasure VDL/Stakkato (breeder: Georg Bräuer, Elze, exhibitor: Ramona Lorenz-Bräuer, Elze). His dam was part of the reserve champion family of the Herwart von der Decken-Show 2021. A representative of the proven Hannoveraner G-blood will be stationed in Riedstadt, Hesse. The Grey Top/Ludwigs As son (breeder: Heino Henning, Hechthausen, exhibitor: Peter Dieckmann, Odenthal) was sold for 38,500 Euros.

Two premium stallions already belonged to renowned stallion stations: a dark bay by Conthargos/Contendro (breeder: Dr. Hilmer Meyer-Kulenkampff, Behlmer, exhibitor: Hengststation Hoffrogge, Dorsten), whose dam is none other than the full sister of Michael Jung's fischerChipmunk FRH, as well as a grey by Cornet's Edition/Drosselklang II (breeder: Wilhelm Leymann, Bassum, exhibitor: Holger Baum, Hofheim). He, too, has absolute world class in his pedigree, he is a half-brother of Fine Lady, Eric Lamazes bronze medallist in Rio de Janeiro. Last year, a stallion who goes back to the Drosselklang II daughter Dorina, Hannoveraner Mare of the Year 2018, was the most expensive stallion at the licensing.

Hannover's stallions were in demand. The top price was paid for an Aganix du Seigneur Z/Acorado son (breeder and exhibitor: Frank Johannsen, Daensen), who brought his successful breeder 120,000 Euros. The granddam of the powerful liver chestnut is the half-sister of Lars Nieberg's Olympic team winner Esprit FRH.

The best paid unlicensed stallion was a liver chestnut by Viscerado/Black Jack (breeder: Heinrich-Gerhard Tietjen, Bremen, exhibitor: Chris-Florian Witte, Hannover), who was auctioned off to the USA for 30,000 Euros.

After an exciting OnLive Auction, the average price of the 15 licensed stallions was 52,900 Euros. An average of 17,607 Euros was paid for the 14 non-licensed representatives of the 2020 vintage. "We saw many stallions that will present Hannover in the best way in breeding and sport in the future," said Jörg Münzner, who was part of the licensing committee together with Markus Beerbaum, Franz Bormann, Dieter Smitz and breeding director Ulrich Hahne.

Breeding and sport belonged together in the Niedersachsenhalle. The stallion licensing was framed by the Hannoveraner Jumping Masters. In addition, the Hannoveraner Stallion of the Year was presented in a show programme, the Celle state stud stallion Perigueux, who was once highly successful on the international stage. A special honour was bestowed on the Cascadello/Balou du Rouet son Oak Grove's Clown (breeder: H.G. van Wijlick, Velden/NED). The internationally successful eight-year-old will compete in the future with the name suffix of the supporters’ club of Hannoveraner sport horses (FRH).
