Friedensfürst
The sire of Brioni, the chestnut elite stallion Friedensfürst, was an international Grand Prix winner with Lisa Wilcox. Stationed at the famous Oldenburg stud Vorwerk in Cappeln, he received his early training from Nicole Uphoff and with her, participated at the prestigious Nürnberg Burgpokal in Frankfurt. Friedensfürst, who stood a most substantial 17.2h, was first approved in Hanover before he became a Trakehner breeding stallion and finished his 100 day test with exceptional results in both the dressage and the jumping index. In fact, he was bred to jump, and often his offspring inherited just that: outstanding talent for jumping. His approved son Lücke is not only an accomplished S-level show jumper in Germany, but is also the first Trakehner ever to be entered into the Hanoverian Show Jumper Breeding Program!

Friedensfürst's sire Rondo was a successful FEI show jumper and the other two sons of him that were approved, the ATA'S Graditz *E* and the German Arthus, both managed to sire excellent jumpers.

Nevertheless, the dressage potential in Friedensfürst, and his magnificent, exuberant mechanics in his movement, especially in trot and canter,made the career choice easy for him. Friedensfürst's third son, the chestnut Patmos, seems to be taking after him, as he is winning at M level as a 5 and 6 year old in Germany. The blood of Friedensfürst is very high in demand.

A majority of his daughters were inspection champions with premium scores in Germany and fetched high prices at auctions and sales (e.g. St.Pr.+Pr.St. Alisha, NMS elite auction in 2004). Friedensfürst's dam Frieda III was sired by the great Gelria (by Kassio), one of the last Trakehner sires descending from the Abglanz-line that proved so valuable for Hanover and Oldenburg. The second dam is already the full TB mare Feinsliebchen xx, who traces back to the same family as e.g. the 1993 Trakehner champion stallion and international eventer Fontainbleau
 

Friedensfürst: by Rondo out of Frieda by Gelria, Trakehner. First approved for the Hannovarian breed, this very tall chestnut stallion passed an excellent performance test before he was also approved for the Trakehner breed. Already winning at 4th level dressage, Friedensfürst was then given to Vorwerk stud, home of Rubinstein, where Nicole Uphoff took over his training and very quickly showed him at PSG level and beyond. They won the reserve title at the Nürnberg Burgpokal and after Nicole had left Vorwerk, American rider Lisa Wilcox too Friedensfürst to Grand Prix. Recognized as one of the most talented German dressage horses in recent times, Friedensfürst stood at the very beginning of a big international career when a fatal heart disease caused the death of this shining star. A big loss for the dressage world and the Trakehner breed, as he was also becoming a popular sire.

Friedensfürst Proclaimed Elite Sire at 2003 Trakehner Stallion Licensing
October 29, 2003

At the 2003 Trakehner Stallion Licensing in Neumunster, the chestnut sire Friedensfürst has been proclaimed Elite Sire by the Trakehner Verband. Based on the successful achievements of his offspring and on his own wonderful performances under Nicole Uphoff and Lisa Wilcox, Friendensfurst earned this special title.

Friedensfurst was by Rondo out of Frieda (by Gelria) and was bred and owned by Jorn Merzdorf from Ettenbüttel, Germany. The chestnut sire, who was approved for the Hanoverian and Trakehner Studbook, has two licensed offspring, Pathmos and Lücke, and eight State Premium Mares. His daughter Bandera (Friedensfurst x Diamant) finished fourth at the 2003 Bundeschampionate in the 3-year old division, and she became 2003 Trakehner Mare Champion of the Year in Neumunster.

Friedensfurst unfortunately passed away in June 2001 after a serious heart disease. He was then at the apex of his career, as he earned many ribbons (36) and trophies (20) at Intermediaire I level and was briefly shown at Grand Prix level.

Friendensfurst scored high notes for his conformation and its hereditability. His overall score was 131 points (type 140, body 121, walk 109, trot 135, canter 130). Due to these high marks, his fabulous offspring and because frozen semen is still available of this stallion, the Trakehner Verband decided to honour the late Friedensfurst with the Elite Hengst title.

The sire a the chestnut elite stallion Friedensfürst, was an international Grand Prix dressage winner with Lisa Wilcox. Stationed at the famous Oldenburg farm Vorwerk in Cappeln, he received his early training from Nicole Uphof and with her, participated at the prestigious Nürnberg Burgpokal in Frankfurt. Friedensfürst, who stood a most substantial 17.2h, was first approved in Hanover before he became a Trakehner breeding stallion and finished his 100 day test with exceptional results in both the dressage, as well as jumping index. In fact, he was bred to jump, and often his offspring inherited just that: outstanding talent for jumping. His approved son Lücke is not only an accomplished S-level show jumper in Germany, but is also one of only three Trakehners entered into the Hanoverian Show Jumper Breeding Program! Friedensfürst's sire Rondo was a successful FEI show jumper and the other two sons of him that were approved, the ATA'S Graditz *E* and the German Arthus, both managed to sire excellent jumpers. Nevertheless, the dressage potential in Friedensfürst, and his magnificent, exuberant mechanics in his movement, especially in trot and canter, made a career choice for him easy. Friedensfürst's third son, the chestnut Patmos, seemed to be taking after him, as he was winning at M level as a 5 and 6 year old in Germany. However, he also showed outstanding jumping style and potential and was sold to the US as a Hunter in 2008 - and sadly ended up gelded. AT the Neumünster stallion approvals in 2008, Patmos only son, Prince Patmos, was approved and became the celebrated reserve champion of the event. The blood of Friedensfürst is very high in demand. A majority of his daughters were inspection champions with premium scores in Germany and fetched high prices at auctions and sales. Friedensfürst's dam Frieda III was sired by the great Gelria (by Kassio), one of the last Trakehner sires descending from the Abglanz-line that proved so valuable for Hanover and Oldenburg. The second dam is already the full TB mare Feinsliebchen xx, who traces back to the same family roots as e.g. the 1993 Trakehner champion stallion and international eventer Fontainbleau
