“Blood will tell” and Herald III’s sire – the Thoroughbred stallion Heraldik xx continues to ‘speak’ through his offspring in show jumping (Herald III with Hoyo de Monterey), in dressage (H-Ekwador), but most notably in Eventing. A show-jumper himself, the Czech-bred Heraldik xx is the nr. 2 in the WBFSH rankings for eventer sires. This particularly through his top offspring: FRH Butts Avedon, Halunke FBW, Hamilton, Hans Damp, etc. We also find other top thoroughbred stallions in Herald III’s pedigree: Ladykiller xx, Manometer xx, Cottage Son xx and Anblick xx.
Also Herald III’s dam line is strong: Herald III’s half-brother Coolman jumped in Grand Prix’s and World Cups under Pius Schwizer. Dam Alassia also gave international jumper Merlin. Grand dam Sasskia brought the famous Falke, who was ridden so successfully by Gerhard Wiltfang. This dam line has also brought Larimar, Carlot, and Elastic Dream.
Herald III was very successful under several riders: Pilar Lucrecia Cordon Muro, Markus Beerbaum, Eric Lamaze and Meredith Michaels-Beerbaum placing very well, for example 1st Nations Cup Barcelona, 1st GP Vejer de la Frontera, 1st GP Saint Lo, 3rd Nations Cup Rome, 4th Nations Cup Lummen, 4th GP Mechelen, 5th Nations Cup La Baule, 7th GP Gijon, 7th Nations Cup Madrid etc.
Performing at the highest level for more than eight years, and with his interesting and proven family, we believe Herald III can be an asset for breeding bringing the optimum blend of blood and sport. Herald III’s first foals in the Netherlands meet all the expectations: they have charisma, blood and expression.
After finishing his successful sport career at the age of 15, Herald III does not meet the PROK criteria of the KWPN.
Herald III: 72,27% thoroughbred, with performance and pedigree at the highest level
