The genetic defect Warmblood Fragile Foal Syndrome (WFFS) has unsettled many breeders for several months now. Understandably, the breeders and the Trakehner Verband demand transparency on this sensitive topic. Trakehner For Life has therefore initiated the test for both stallions and can now give the breeders with the negative findings the absolute certainty that neither PERPIGNAN NOIR nor LEBENSTRAUM carry the causative mutation for the WFFS in the LH1 gene. We will gladly send you a copy of the report on request.
The beautiful ROSENFEE by PERPIGNAN NOIR out of the ABISKO daughter RONCHA enriches the Trakehner calendar 2019 as a model with an enchanting foal picture. The one-year-old beauty from the breeding and the possession of Anja Heinrich already impressed with her foal entry with high rating and makes now also as a calendar model her father all honor. Trakehner for Life congratulates the breeder, who can also look forward to an exciting future with her new platform Berittplatz.de. Berittplatz.de is a novel platform for horse and rider training, which advises on everything from foal raising, preparation registration or licensing, training and riding in all riding styles, tournament presentation, tournament support to rehabilitation, trainer search and course offers – all under one roof – transparent and professional.

The exceptional jumping stallion enjoyed a no-compromise return to competition after a one-year break due to injury. With his rider, 3-time Austrian State Champion (Juniors & Young Riders) Lea Siegl, the 7-year-old mastered the course with jumps up to 125 cm flawlessly and with routine. The trot extensions shown in between also impressed the spectators. We wish LEBENSTRAUM and Lea all the best for the 2019 tournament season!
The noble son of PERPIGNAN NOIR out of the high scored mare SAMARA from INSTER GRADITZ was awarded the premium on Sunday, July 1, 2018, during the occasion of the Fohlenbrenntermin on the stud of the Hartl family in Austria. The evaluation committee judged the colt in the type and physique with 8.5 points each. In the basic gaits he scored particularly in gallop and fascinated all attendees especially with his unique interior. Santino Argentino is now raised according to the recommendation as a stallion prospect. The entire Hartl family was pleased with the good grading and celebrated the success of breeding with “Kaiserwetter” together with the evaluation committee and all attending friends of the Trakehner horse with a traditional “Schnitzlessen”!
After a 3-month break due to injury, the exceptional jumping stallion LEBENSTRAUM is fit again and is being prepared for competition by Lea Siegl. Frozen and fresh semen will be available to the breeders from 26 March 2018 via the Bachl stallion stud farm.
In the March issue of the magazine DER TRAKEHNER, Trakehner Breeding Director Lars Gehrmann describes the foals of PERPINGAN NOIR as follows:
Almost all the children from the first year of the champion stallion Perpignan Noir had the special type of embossing of the father recognized in terms of nobility and expression. This also applies to other features, such as the shapely, large-scale and somewhat narrow body, a lot of essay and uphill in the movement with shoulder room and a first-class gallop, the long legs with striking texture in not too large joints and the overall charisma that they spray through their appearance.
Trakehner For Life is pleased about this very positive evaluation of the premium year and is looking forward to the upcoming foals 2018!

The lacquer black son of the PERPIGNAN NOIR from St.Pr. u. Pr.St. SCHÖNE WELT by EH King Arthur was awarded with the title Prämienfohlen at this years foal event at the stud farm of the family Meinen in Tann. The young stallion impressed the audience immediately with the “entrance jump” into the square with impressive manners, which he evidently has inherited from his grandmother St.Pr. u. Pr.St.SCHÖNE ZEIT. The winner of the VI. Bavarian Trakehner Landesschau was rated 9,5 in her mare performance test and was the best jumping mare. However, SYRAH NOIR particularly impressed the commission with his type and space-grabbing gallop, where each of which received 8.5 points. Trakehner For Life congratulates Anna Maria and Hartwig Meinen on this successful mating!
Perpignan Noir, who was himself the champion of the traditional Hörsteiner Fohlenchampionat in 2013, was able to provide the best breeders of the colts with FELIPE NOIR. The cheered young stallion comes from Felisha from EH Cadeau and convinced with extraordinary type and movements. Like the father so the son … that makes great anticipation for Neumünster! Trakehner For Life congratulates breeder Patricia Pröschner from Schotten/Germany and wishes all the best for the stallion rearing.
The charming daughter of PERPIGNAN NOIR out of Pr.St. STERNFEE from EH Cadeau was awarded with the title Prämienfohlen at this years foal event at Hörstein stud. The award winning filly reached the third place in the final ring of this years championship! The exquisite mother, Pr.St. Sternfee was winner mare of Hessen at age of 3 and comes from the famous stud Hörstein and is in the possession of Mrs. Susanne Trompke, who together with Karl Ochsner made the mating with Perpignan Noir deliberately and may now look forward to the award-winning foal. Trakehner For Life congratulates quite cordially and the proud owner Karl Ochsner will now ensure that this bead of breeding grows well and is promoted accordingly.
out of St.Pr. and Pr.St. Schöne Welt / EH King Arthur from the breeder’s house Meinen in Tann/Bavaria changes into the possession of Dominik Hartl. SYRAH NOIR looks very similar to his father and is characterized not only by type and powerful movements, but also by his interior. The promising young stallion will be moved to stallion rearing in autumn.
In his first tournament after this years’ breeding duty, the Trakehner Stallion LEBENSTRAUM (Abendtanz x Heops) showed himself to be in good form and immediately achieved a 5th placing amongst a strong field in the Class I eventing in Feldbach, Austria.
After positive completion of the 14 day suitability testing in Marbach, PERPIGNAN NOIR returned yesterday evening to Postmünster and moved into his stallion box. He is thus immediately available to breeders via the Bachl Station. We are looking forward to the 2015 Trakehner Champion Stallion’s second breeding season!
LEBENSTRAUM’s first colt (First Choice) out of Fleure-Dark from Acartenango – Beg xx was born on 07. April. We congratulate Sweetwater Stud on the birth of this fabulous typey colt.
Due to the high demand for fresh semen, LEBENSTRAUM is available via FS at the Bachl stallion stud farm from now until May 8!

The first Trakehner foal out of Perpignan Noir was born to the Breeding Stud Farm Stöckerhof in Kurenbach/Germany and looks just like her father! The little lady enchants with type and charisma as well as dancing movements and seems to Trakehner for Life to be a clear candidate for a top spot at the 1st virtual foal championships! Her mother, Pr.St. Firegirl out of Montafon was 2nd reserve champion stud in North Rhine Westfalia and is a pearl in the Vetser family’s stud, where they are looking forward to further offspring from the 2015 Champion Stallion. We send our hearty congratulations and are keeping our fingers crossed!

4-year-old PERPIGNAN NOIR, on the occasion of the 19th Trakehner Stallion Show at the Westphalian Equine Centre, celebrated the absolute breeding progress of his distinguished genetics and race – the noble Trakehner sporting horse.
The grandson of the internationally successful Trakehner dressage star IMPERIO presented himself under his trainer, Ralf Kornprobst, as extremely powerful, full of confidence and with a strong gait. With a performance appropriate to his age, he delighted the expert public as well as the chief breeder, Lars Gehrmann, who commented especially on the extreme development with regard to frame and meaning and, at the same time made it clear that the stallion had not forfeited one bit of charisma, form and type distinction.
The 6-year-old Lebenstraum presented himself last weekend at the AWÖ Stallion’s day in Stadl Paura in clarified and imposing fashion and knew how to please the whole of the public during the show programme under Lea Siegl. Dr. Leopold Erasimus (AWÖ) praised the stallion in the highest terms during his commentary.
The jumper stallion LEBENSTRAUM demonstrated his comprehensive prowess.
The licensed stallion LEBENSTRAUM (Abendtanz x Heops), has been acknowledged since 13.12.2016 for GERMAN SPORTING HORSE BREEDING.
The beautiful black horse presented himself in the Hall of the Olympic Equestrian Centre in Munich-Riem in top form and impressed the licensing commission with his special charisma and unique interior. He delighted not only the commission and the head of breeding, but also the spectators at the jumps through his manner and ability.
He will immediately allow his noble and high-performance Trakehner blood to flow into the GERMAN SPORTING HORSE BREEDING:
The prize mare Esperia competed at this year’s Trakehner stallion market in Neumünster for the title of the Trakehner Annual Champion Mare. After an excellent performance and self-presentation against quality competition, Esperia was awarded the title of “1st reserve winner”. She presented herself as the mare with the strongest gait at the trot and was presented superbly by the Bescht Team. Due to the very good equestrian performance during the mare performance tests, Esperia was then presented to the expert public under the saddle at the gala night by Vanessa Siedentopf and was awarded as a special distinction the “East Prussian Coat of Arms”.
The 5-year-old stallion presented himself in best form under the 3-fold Austrian Junior and Young Rider National Champion Lea Siegl, and mastered the Eventing Hall Course during the show programme in sovereign fashion and unimpressed by the loud music and thunderous applause in the sold-out Holsten Hall. He thus once again underlined his exceptional character and performance along with impeccable manners.
TRAKEHNER FOR LIFE, Dominik Hartl and Karl Ochsner, thank heartily all the breeders who looked after and put their trust in the Trakehner Champion 2015, PERPIGNAN NOIR, and invite you all to the 1st foal championship. We are looking forward to a large attendance with active involvement.

Ralf Kornprobst presented the 2015 Champion Stallion for the first time in public under saddle and mutated him with a confident, extremely impressive performance appropriate to his age into the stallion highlight of the show. Klaus Balkenhol commentated the stallion superbly and emphasised the path of the sensible and horse-equitable training this exceptional young horse has had. The emotional laudation from Erhard Schulte on the special lineage, with roots going back directly to the main Trakehner Stud Farm, as well as the description of the winning stallion and his performance in Neumünster made the public very aware of the perfect combination of tradition and modern! Bruno Six addressed specifically the stallion’s exceptionally good movement, documented the importance of a good gait, praised hindquarter motor skills during trotting and even adjudged the gallop with a 10!
LEBENSTRAUM opened the gala show of the Trakehner National Mare Show of the breeding region Bavaria/Austria at the Murtal breeding show with a brilliant display in best Trakehner fashion! Under the four-fold Austrian State Eventing Champion and Olympia rider Harald Siegel, LEBENSTRAUM showed impressively his outstanding qualities in jumping and his imposing expanding gait. He delighted the expert spectators in wonderful surroundings with an action-packed show and even commentator Bruno Six was unable to contain his enthusiasm, praised the stallion as the ideal example of a modern sporting horse and promised the young stallion a great career in the bush. Erhard Schulte documented the targeted genetic pairing and explained the unusual motivation of the jump-focussed stallion from the hippological point of view!
Trakehner-stallion Lebenstraum (Abendtanz v. Heops) won on 27.08.16 in Wendling in Austria under Lea Siegl the show jumping tests for 5 – 6 year-old horses (105 cm) with an extremely impressive 9.0 (no faults within the time limit). He thus left the competition, among them from Zangersheide and Holstein behind, and that as one of the youngest in the field.
The start of this year’s foal registration and branding trip in Austria was made by the Bavarian delegation under the direction of Dr Schubert at the farm of the Härtl family, where two fillies from Dominic Hartl are being introduced.
Firstly, an extremely strongly typed “Allegra° out of Sir Sansibar from the Arleen out of Esteem OX (Type note 9.5), followed by the strong-moving “Superia” out of Connery from the Samara from Inster Graditz! Both mare foals presented received the title of premium foals!
Trakehner for Life would like to thank the numerous breeders who put their trust in the stallion. We are looking forward already to the first foal crop. Special thanks go to the whole team and the Bachl family!
The judges in Hanover scored 8.5 in the performance test Class A** for the licensed Lebenstraum with Raffaele Valente in the saddle – none of the competitors (28 participants) was able to better this.
Furthermore, Lebenstraum took 5th place in the show jumping test Level L, where he was again fault-free and only received one 0.4 point time fault.
We would like to thank all the breeders whose mares were inseminated by Lebenstraum, as well as the Tasdorf stud farm for their professional care of the stallion.
The reigning Champion Mare of Bavaria/Austria completed her mare performance test from 18th June to 13th July at the Bescht breeding and training stud in Schlieckau. She also finished as the best tested mare with a total mark of 7.9.
The three-year-old Esperia von Schwarzgold out of Espritta von Schwadroneur, owned by Dominik Hartl and trained by Erik Jörgensen in Denmark, was even as a foal outstanding, achieving the highest rating of 60 points. The judges in Mainburg elected the noble, dark-brown mare as the Champion Mare of the 2016 Central Mare Registration, awarding her 57 points.
Breeding manager Lars Gehrmann: “Certainly the best-moving mare in all three basic gaits, correctly executing them in the process. The mare has a high measure of femininity as well as sportiness to offer!” Esperia also took part successfully in the free jumping events.
In the process of a special licensing event, instructed by the board of directors, the stallion, which had been highly successfully performance tested in Adelheidsdorf was introduced and licensed in Tasdorf. His whole demeanour imparted an attitude of willingness to perform, highlighted by his sporty disposition, especially when jumping, as well as his exceptionally valuable pedigree.
With his jumping-accented pedigree (from Abendtanz-Heops), Lebenstraum confirmed his class against strong competition in the SPT with emphasis on jumping, achieving a total mark of 8.24, including the highest mark in the group (21 stallions) for psychological aspects (9.75), character/temperament (9.5) and willingness to perform (10.0).
