Gershwin SF

2008 Black Hanoverian Gelding - 16hh

Gershwin is a striking black gelding with a bright future for dressage. He has three powerful gaits, steps well-under and carries himself in a balanced frame. This five-year-old star will mature into a solid, athletic partner.  His gaits are vibrant and adaptable. If you are looking for a nice, well-bred young gelding that will be ready to show next year take a look at this one.

Graf Top I, the father of this talented black gelding, was named the Hanoverian Verband’s Stallion of the Year for 2011.  Graf Top I is proving himself as an excellent sire of jumping talent, as well as gifted dressage horses. 

Elite Mare Francesca has produced several offspring that inherit her character. They are a great combination of gentle and sensitive.  She was an excellent show horse and scored an outstanding 10/9 for jumping in her Mare Performance test. 

Gershwin SF was named the Top Foal at his AHS inspection and pictured in the AHS Breeders Yearbook.

Francesca's character and temperament are a great combination of gentle and sensitive. She was a super show horse because of her calmness on the ground, yet she was fiercely competitive in the jumper ring. At her Mare Performance Test, she scored a 10/9 jumping. Co-winner of the Benchmark Award as best jumping mare in 2004. Inducted into the Hanoverian Jumper Breeding Program.

Graf Top I was named the Hanoverian Verband’s Stallion of the Year for 2012. Graf Top I is proving himself as an excellent sire of jumping talent, as well as gifted dressage horses. He is the #4 ranked German Hanoverian Stallion for his daughters' breeding values for jumping (score 159), and also ranks high for dressage breeding values. His dressage competition value is a high 132, and for jumping 128. Graf Top is out of a full sister to the dam of Laptop, and combines the jumping talent and willingness of both Graf Grannus and Calypso II. A lot of significance and expression mark this well-framed, correct stallion of good riding horse type.
