Empire HW has an impressive pedigree and famous licensed full brother (Escamillo), their sire is Escolar, Bundeschampion and Westphalian Champion Stallion. Escolar takes command of the scene today like practically no other stallion. In 2012 Escolar made his debut at shows with results that would be hard to beat: He won one test for young riding horses after the other, in Lingen, Cloppenburg and Münster-Handorf, where the judges didn't hesitate to give the highest possible score of 10.0. Just decorated with the Westphalian Champion title, Escolar and his trainer, Hermann Burger, went to Warendorf where they again demonstrated their special status at the Bundeschampionat in the class for three-year old stallions. "What you see here is the best possible development of impulsion, cadence and perfect rhythm", commented Dr. Dietrich Plewa in the name of the judges who pulled a 10.0 out of their hats for his trot and canter. They also gave him a very good (9.0) for his state of training and the harmony of his presentation, an 8.5 for conformation and an 8.0 for his walk. Even the guest riders, Kim Pfeiffer and Marcus Hermes, were impressed and gave him 19.5 of 20 possible points. With a result like that and a clear margin to his competitors, the winner's sash was wrapped around Escolar's neck at the unofficial German Championships for young horses.
A look at Escolar's pedigree reveals the most valuable genes for performance. This significant bay stallion is from the first crop of the NRW Champion Stallion, Estobar NRW, who is also available to breeders at the Ludger Beerbaum Stables GmbH's stallion stables. Estobar NRW is by Ehrentusch and on his dam's side he goes back to the famous Addi mare line. He began his career in 2006 as the highly applauded winner of the NRW main licensing in Münster-Handorf. This achievement was followed by victory in the prestigious Westfalen-Wappen, 154.74 points in the dressage index at his stallion performance test and qualification for the Bundeschampionat. When he was seven, Estobar NRW won his first tests in advanced level dressage. Since then, Estobar NRW has been trained by none other than the team Olympic winner, Hubertus Schmidt. In 2012, he and the bay stallion won the international Small Tour of Münster. Escolar is the third licensed son of Estobar NRW. Another son, El Florissimo, was awarded a premium in 2010 in North Rhine Westphalia. Escolar's dam St.Pr.St. Farah Dina L finished her broodmare performance test as the best mare of the year, placed in tests for young riding horses and then gave birth to Escolar's full brother who was admitted to the 2012 NRW licensing. The dam's sire, Fürst Piccolo, a grandson of the Rhineland trademark stallion, Florestan I, is one of the most popular stallions at the State Stud in Warendorf. The following generations of his pedigree contains a string of heroes in Oldenburg breeding: Sion, Figaro and Vollkorn xx. Escolar goes back to the successful Bastina line which is known for many top horses in breeding and sport. But also to his offspring who dominated the dressage arenas with a unity which is seldom seen. Above all the German and Westphalian Champion Eternity, the German and Westphalian Championship third and top auction horse Eyleen, the German Championship finalist Evita, the Westphalian Vice Champion and reserve winner mare Estelle and the Westphalian Championship fifth Escomark, only to name a few. The number of licensed sons of Escolar rose up to ten, one of them the Westphalian reserve Champion, premium stallions and performance test winners. Escolar's foals belong to the most wanted at the auctions.
Empire HW 's dam sire is the famous Champion stallion Rohdiamant.
In 2010, Rohdiamant stood on third place in the WBFSH Ranking of the best sires for rideability - even ahead of his sire, Rubinstein. Rubinstein's career was filled with highlights: Winner of his licensing, two-time Bundeschampion, main premium winner and Grand Prix winner under Lisa M. Wilcox/USA.
From his more than 50 licensed sons, the most prominent are the Champion Stallions Ron William, Rhodon, Rosenberg and Blue Hors Romanov. The latter, bred by Harli Seifert, received the 2008 VTV-Sport Stallion of the Year award and made a successful debut in World Cup free-styles in 2010. His full brother, Rubin-Royal, who received the 2007 VTV Dressage Stallion of the Year award, also won an Oldenburg main premium, racked up victories in Grand Prix dressage and is also stationed in Lodbergen.
More than 100 of his offspring are successful in advanced (S) level classes such as Responsible OLD with Helen Langehanenberg, Eremo del Castegno under Valentina Truppa/ITA and Revino, who placed second in the EC for young riders. Nearly 90 of Rohdiamant's daughters received a State Premium, including two Champion Mares, Reine Seide and Romanika.
The successful line of Elektia is also represented in Lodbergen by Rohdiamant's younger full brother, Royal Diamond.
