Biedermeier RRS aka “Bruiser” is by the elite Hanoverian stallion ES Bonheur, by Brentano II, one of the most influential sire lines that has produced multiple World Cup, World Equestrian Games and Olympic competitors, including America’s favorite mare, Brentina (campaigned by Debbie McDonald). Bruiser’s Dam, MS Portiana, is an elegant German import by Prince Thatch, undoubtedly one of the most important English Thoroughbreds chosen to lighten and modernize the Hanoverian breed. Also by ES Bonheur, Bruiser’s half-brother, Benefactor RRS has been trained and competed by Silva Martin to great success.
Benefactor’s accomplishments include: Region I Champion at Training and Second Level, Reserve Champion at First Level, BLM an GAIG Champion at Training, First and Second Levels and 5th Place in the National Young Horse Championships. In 2013, Benefactor RRS was honored as the American Hanoverian Society’s top 5-year-old with a median score of 8.3 with multiple wins in his classes at Dressage at Devon!
Bruiser shares not only the same exceptional breeding with Benefactor RRS, but also the same easy temperament and personal presence. Just started under saddle in the fall of 2014, Bruiser is displaying an exemplary work ethic and considerable athleticism!
