EHRENPREIS completed his Stallion Performance Test in 2004 in Warendorf with clearly above-verage results and high sores for rideability, willingness and character. After that he was trained for the higher levels of dressage. Meanwhile he had wins and places in tests for young dressage horses.
His sire EHRENTUSCH became one of the most popular stallions of recent North Rhine-Westphalian breeding history. The dam achieved high placings in tests for young riding horses. The granddam, State Premium mare Athletin, was a mare of the Brilliantring at the 1989 Oldenburg Elite Broodmare Show. Athletin stems from Athlet II, who pruduced horses with very good rideability. The origins of this dam line lie in Oldenburg and is based on mare Ballisa. The dam’s sire, Rubenstein I, was Reserve Champion at the Bundeschampionat, won the Nürnberger Burgpokal and more than 40 Grand Prix tests.
