First Class lives up to his name with a incredible temperament, 3 excellent gaits, beautiful looks and a powerful dressage pedigree behind him. He is a beautiful 5 year old imported German Hanoverian gelding standing 16hh with a dappled dark bay coat. He has clean leg, feet, back and neck xrays on file and hails from an impressive dam line. First Class's mother St.Pr. Amore Mia is maternal sister to the International Grand Prix star breeding stallion Fidertanz!

First Class was imported from Germany to Canada last winter and has thrived in his new home. He has excellent manners, a kind character and loves working. He was bred by Hengststation Schult in Germany where his extremely prolific dam lives. First Class's young dam St.Pr. Amore Mia has already produced the Premium licensed Hanoverian stallion Bel Amour by Belantis. First Class's grand-dam St.Pr. Reine Freude is mother to 3 International Advanced Level dressage horses including Grand Prix star stallion Fidertanz and produced 6 titled daughters.

First Class's sire Finest is making a reputation in Germany for siring kind, beautiful and talented offspring. Finest has captivating charm, and impeccable symmetry, that allowed him to excel in the 30-day test in Münster in a very strong field, reaching maximum grades (9.63 interior, rideability and 9.25 overall grade 8.58) an excellent breed value of 138 points. Finest's sire, Fürstenball, is creating his own dynasty siring beautiful, rideable and elegant horses in addition to being competed to Advanced Level. His sire, Fürst Heinrich, was the impressive 2003 winner of the World Championship of Five Year Old Dressage Horses, and he has produced many first-rate horses. He is high up on the FN breeding index with a score of 151. Maternal grandsire, Donnerhall, is without doubt an excellent stallion, and the dam’s Tierce bloodline consistently produces successful horses, such as the champion stallion in Oldenburg in 2007, Sieger Hit, top-class broodmares and successful advanced level dressage horses. Fürstenball’s dam, Maradonna, also produced an approved stallion by Dimaggio. This famous dam line, which was founded by breeder Georg Sieverding, has impressive amounts of titled mares with beauty, character and gaits.

First Class is priced at 70k USD and is located in Uxbridge ON one hour north of the Toronto Pearson International Airport and is available for trials. Airport pick up and accommodation assistance is available. He has an excellent full set of radiographs (neck, back, fetlocks, hocks, stifles and feet) available. He sells with open vet records and receives no joint injections or maintenance to stay sound and healthy. He is a calm turnout horse with no vices and is easy to trailer, clip and care for.
