Terms - €1000+VAT for unlimited attempts with chilled or frozen semen, on one named mare in one breeding season. If the mare is certified not in foal before the end of September then a 50% credit applies the following year to spend on any stallion from the same stud.  If the first AI of the year is July 1st or later, the credit the following year is 100%.

Please note: Schockemöhle prioritise mares on site in Germany for chilled semen from their stallions, so popular stallions may be unavailable in the peak of the season with no notice. In this instance, frozen can be offered on the same terms for most stallions, but we advise that you also have a second-choice stallion in mind also standing at Schockemöhle, in case your first-choice stallion cannot be supplied. 

This stallion is a confirmed carrier of Warmblood Fragile Foal Syndrome (WFFS), and Elite Stallions strongly recommends that owners tests their mares and only use him on confirmed negative (N/N) mares.

About - Flawless in type, with gigantic movement  – Sparkling is worthy offspring of the now only narrowly flowering stallion line of the great Rubinstein.

Sire - His father Springbank II VH started his career as a Danish dressage winning stallion. He then won his HLP with the remarkable overall score of 954.5 points: 10 for rideability and perspective. Springbank II VH won the Swedish Junior Championship three times (3ynd, 4th and 6th). In addition, he was unbeatable at the Danish Championships (4 years) and finished fifth at the Dressage Horse World Championships of the five-year-olds with a total of 9.18 (9.5 for the gallop and the overall impression). In 2020, he won the qualification for the Danish Dressage Horse Championship for six-year-olds. However, the final, as well as the Dressage Horse World Championships, for which Springbank II VH was nominated, could not be held due to Corona. Under his new owner Yara Reichert, he effortlessly made the leap into the difficult class at the age of seven and ranked twelfth at the Dressage Horse World Championships in Verden.

Damline - The mother Fascinada is half-sister to the licensed and internationally Grand Prix-winning Glock's Toto Jr. N.O.P. (v. Totilas)/Edward Gal/NED.

Prince Romancier in second place was Oldenburg main prize winner and fourth at the Dressage Horse World Championships and the Federal Championships. His descendants, such as First Romance/Dorothee Schneider and For Romance OLD/Therese Nilshagen/SWE, have arrived in the Grand Prix quadrangle.

From the grandmother Desperada also comes the Inter I dressage horse Harmony's Astro (v. Astrix)/Michael Klimke. Desperada's full brother is the licensed and until Inter I-successful Decurio/Susann Göbel. The full sister Damandala brought the licensed stallion Suarez (v. Sezuan), who placed in the 2021 World Championship final of the six-year-old dressage horses.

In the pedigree, the team Olympic champion, world and European champion Desperados FRH/Kristina Sprehe and the main peeler Rotspon stationed at the state stud in Celle follow.

The third mother St.Pr.St. Regent also brought the junior dressage horse Sirius Black (v. Stedinger)/Gemma Owen/GBR and the St.Pr.St. Sinphonie (v. Stedinger), which brought the licensed and in the USA to Inter I-successful Ferenikos Ymas (v. Floriscount). A regent granddaughter became the mother of the Hanoverian premium stallion Daily Dream (v. Dimaggio).

Through the fourth mother Bijou, the licensed Grand Prix stallion Hyrano (v. First Junior)/Jeroen Devroe/BEL is also closely related.
