Gymnastik Star

Gymnastik Star

Glueckspilz - Calypso 11 - Werther


Gymnastik Star was originally chosen by the late Holger Schmorl of Kinnordy Stud as the 'jewel in the crown' for his Australian-based Hanoverian breeding program.

Purchased from Germany, Gymnastik Star was imported into Australia as a young horse where he quickly established himself as one of the most successful producers of elite sport horses in the country's history - testimony to Holger's foresight as a professional breeder.

Gymnastik Star became the ultimate dual-purpose sire for breeding dressage horses, eventers and showjumpers with temperament, type and trainability (refer results below).

His unique pedigree features a sex-balancing within the first four generations of the internationally successful stallions Gotthard and Wendekreis, as well as the refinement and elasticity enhancing abilities of the great Cor de le Bryere and the reliability of the highly regarded Werther.

Gymnastik Star's breathtaking movement, rideability and outstanding willingness as a riding horse, combined with his huge jump, resulted in scoring 8s and 9s in the major criteria and culminated in a Performance Class 1 Status and the Premium Stallion Award in his Stallion Performance Test in Germany – 4th of 33 stallions.

He is a superb representative of the Hanoverian brand and his high number of successful progeny are excellent ambassadors of the Olympic equestrian disciplines. They are easy to recognize with their magnificent types, elastic movements, and captivating personalities combined with their jumping brilliance.

Gymnastik Star sadly passed away in January 2016. However, we are fortunate to have his frozen semen available to use within our breeding program.
