Owner's word

SANDREO, since 2017, is ranked 19th Best Dressage Stallion Worldwide (Source: World Breeding Federation for Sport Horses - WBFSH).  NRPS (Dutch Riding Horse and Pony Society) Vice-Champion at the age of 3, Winner of the KWPN Stallion finals at the ages of 4 & 5, Team Bronze Medallist at the European Championships, and 4th in the FEI World Youth Ranking in 2015, SANDREO is a proven stallion and readily used by breeders worldwide.

He is exceptionally well conformed with height and expression that he hands down to his offspring.  SANDREO is a stallion with fantastic movement and is most suited to spirited mares due to his excellent temperament.  At the time of the stallion-approval tests in Ermelo, his performance caused a real sensation, notably due to his supple trot and to his balanced and round canter with excellent propulsion.  His progeny is well thought of and we regularly receive requests for 3 & 4-year-olds.

SANDRO HIT

- His sire, Sandro Hit, continues to make a name for himself: the stallion has taken the lead in the 2021 ranking of the best sires of Grand Prix horses established by the World Breeding Federation For Sport Horses (WBFSH). A performance achieved thanks to the performances of his sons and daughters in international competitions: Showtime FRH, Sir Dohherhall II, Sebastien, Salvino, Statesman, Sintano Van Hof Olympia, Scolari 4.

Sandro Hit was already the most represented stallion at the Olympic Games in Tokyo 2020 in 2021 and won the German 6-year old Championship and the World 6-year old Championship in 1999. In 2000 he was awarded the title of "Best Young Stallion". In 2017, he is 2nd in the world ranking of WBFSH dressage stallions: Selten HW, 47th world performer in dressage in 2017 under Anders Dahl, CDIO5*, Rio Olympics 2016; Jimmie Choo SEQ, Rio Olympics 2016, 85th world performer 2017, CDI-W and CDIO5* with M. Hendeliowitz; Showtime FRH, 3rd world performer in 2016, Olympic Team Champion and 6th individual at Rio Olympics; Ullrichequine's St Emilion, 38th world performer in 2016; Santana 37th world performer 2014, Sandro Boy 9, Sancette, Sancisco... all winners in CDI, CDI-W and CDIO. In 2003, one of her male offspring was 2nd in the German Foal Championship and Poetin won the World Championship for 6-year-olds in Verden. In the wake of this, she was sold at the PSI sales for a record sum of €2,500,000. In 2004, Santa Cruz, a young stallion born in 1998, was sold for € 750,000. In 2006, he once again dominated the young stallion approval tests in various German studbooks. He has many sons approved in different studbooks such as Showstar, FS Sandro Classic, San Rubin and Sir Donnerhall also won the "Bundeschampionat". Among the 90 stallion sons of Sandro Hit, a large number have been winners of numerous events such as Sir Willlson, Stedinger, Sunny Boy, Sandrit, Sommerhit, Stoiber, Samba Hit II...

In 2017, he was 2nd in the WBFSH World dressage stallions ranking, notably due to: SELTEN HW, ranked 47th worldwide in dressage ridden by Anders Dahl, CDIO5*, Rio Olympics 2016; JIMMIE CHOO SEQ, Rio Olympics 2016, 85th in 2017 World ranking, CDI-W and CDIO5* ridden by Mads Hendeliowitz; SHOWTIME FRH, 3rd world best in 2016, Team Olympic Champion and ranked 6th Individual at Rio Olympics; ULLRICHEQUINE’S ST EMILION, ranked 38th worldwide in 2016; SANTANA, 37th worldwide in 2014 ... not forgetting SANDRO BOY 9, SANCETTE, SANCISCO... all winners in CDI, CDI-W and CDIO.
