Singing Highlander - 164 cm - Black - 2004
by Arentino X Peron Junior x Kontakt - Family: S4A Heimkehr
Highlander’s sire Arentino by Wie Ibikus and out of the foundation mare Schwalbenlied was Champion of the grading in 1980 and was a very substantial big framed grandson of the legendary Ibikus.
Wie Ibikus himself produced a high number of successful dressage horses competing up to Grand Prix, amongst them the graded sons Va Tout (international Grand Prix horse) and the very well known dressage sires Kiebitz (father of Banditentraum) and Ferrum. Santiago himself produced a number of outstanding broodmares as for example Argentina (full sister to Arentino), Cinzana, Kelly Lady, Countess, Fortuna and Chanel. His real value can be seen in his offspring’s competition results, amongst a big group of successful horses in advanced competitions, such as the international three-day event horse Campari, who for many years was the most successful Trakehner in this sort of competition and the Grand Prix dressage horses Satchmo, Kapitan, Kaschmir and Finalist.
Arentino’s mother E.St Arktis II presents herself as one of the most valuable broodmares of the whole Trakehner breed, being a full sister to the great stallion Arogno, (sire of Schwadroneur and Partout), which was the real reformation of the breed within the last 30 years. Besides Arentino she produced St.Pr.u.Pr Mare Argentina by Santiago (full sister to Arentino), which was Champion and Supreme Champion of many shows, also Anteus by Saint Cloud, successful three-day event horse at advanced level, Arktikos by Blazflug, doing so well in Austria in Prix St.Georges and Altlantis by Velasquea, Reserve Champion of the central grading and show in Denmark.
E.St Arktis II was awarded Elite mare status in year 2004 by the Trakehner verband in Germany. This bloodline is a guarantee for high natural riding ability and therefore we believe in Arentino, as a donator of dressage attitudes, kind temperament and powerful movements. Arentino completed his 100-day performance test in Germany. He was successfully ridden in dressage up to Prix St.George and Intermediaire, as well as some show jumping circuit, which was something that he preferred to dressage. Arentino is a real gentleman with an outstanding character, kind attitudes and noble presence. He is without a doubt a top class stallion. Arentino's foals are very correct in conformation and have his lovely lovely temperament and super uphill paces.
