Sternlicht has been a standout since the beginning. As a 2-year-old, Sternlicht was Reserve Champion for USDF Horse of the Year honors with a median score over 82%. Sternlicht placed 7th at the USEF Four-Year Old Championships and commandingly won the First Level Championship at the USDF National Finals. The following year he placed 3rd at the USEF Young Horse Championships in the FEI Six-Year Old division and won the US Dressage Finals at Third Level. At age 7, he is confidently winning at Prix St. Georges with scores consistently in the 70’s.
Sternlicht’s sire, Soliman de Hus, earned 137 points in his 70-day test including seven scores of 9 or higher. Soliman has 8 licensed sons to date. Sternlicht’s dam is an eighth generation Elite/SPS Mare. Her sire, Rascalino, was winner of his performance testing in Germany with an overall score of 148.29 and 153.37 points in Dressage.
Sternlicht’s first foals arrived the spring of 2015 and we’re consistently seeing his beautiful modern type, long legs, and exceptional canters. He has sired a number of Premium Foals and Inspection Site Champions. Sternlicht offspring are consistently winning in-hand classes and showing bright promise for future development.
