Association for the promotion of Hannoveraner Sport horses

Two new FRH horses: Stalido FRH and Dark Beluga FRH.

In September, the Association for the promotion of Hannoveraner Sport horses awarded two successful Hannoveraner. In future, Matthis Westendarp's show jumping horse Stalido and Jannik Heiland's vaulting horse Dark Beluga will be competing with the name suffix FRH.

 

In Vilamoura/POR, the Stakkato/Calido son Stalido (breeder: Renate Bosse, Wendeburg) and Germany's Matthis Westendarp became European Champions of the young show jumpers. These were the third Championships for the 2006-born bay and his 19-year-old riders from Wallenhorst. Already two years ago, the two had become European Team Champions in Zuidwolde/NED. Now another award follows with the name suffix FRH. Stalido FRH is the second FRH horse of the Westendarp family. Only two years ago, the homebred Four Seasons FRH and Alexa Westendarp received this honour for their outstanding successes in the dressage arena.

 

With a very emotional tribute, Dark Beluga was duly celebrated at the German Vaulting Championships, which took place in Verden, with the name suffix FRH. The De Niro/Akzent II son (breeder: Heinz Nölkenhöner, Raddestorf, owner: Barbara and Franca Rosiny and Dr. Markus Jaeger-Rosiny, Lüneburg) is one of the best vaulting horses in the world. With German Jannik Heiland and his owner Barbara Rosiny on the lunge, he became Vice World Champion in Budapest/HUN a few weeks ago and was part of the German team that won gold in the team classification. In addition, he also helped Janika Derks to a silver medal in the women's final. Dark Beluga FRH and Jannik Heiland added another title to their World and European Championship titles in Verden: They became German Champions in the men's individual vaulting.
