December Hanoverian of the Month: Santiago

santiago_templateSantiago is the name of the winner of the prestigious Nuremberg Cup in 2015! He lines up with successful horses such as Elvis VA, Burlington, Blind Date, Wahajama Unicef, Bonaparte, Comic Hiltop and Rassolini, who all won the Cup for the Hanoverian breeding area, and in doing so, marked the beginning of their international career. It is impossible to imagine tournaments in Germany without the Nuremberg Cup.

Santiago impressively cleared the hurdle when he qualified in Mannheim in May with a final result of 74.439%. His trainer and rider is Germany’s number one rider Dorothee Schneider. She has been riding the impressive gelding since 2014.

Christian Flamm trained him before, successfully presenting him in the Final of Federal Championships and introducing him at advanced level dressage tests.

Born in 2007 at Klaus-Hermann Ehlens stud in Bremervörde, Santiago made his first mark at the age of three under Jörn Ahrens in 2010 at the 123rd Elite Auction.

Alexander Stolzke from Berlin discovered and purchased the popular gelding. Discovered in Verden – today a horse with an awesome potential for a successful future!
