Sternlicht epitomizes the modern sport horse.He was licensed by both the Hanoverian and ISR/Oldenburg registries in 2013, and impressed with his type, movement, and character. His canter is a particular highlight and earned scores of 8 and 8.5 at his licensings. Sternlicht began showing undersaddle early in 2014 competing in the USEF 4-Year Old classes. He earned scores as high as 8.5 throughout the season and easily qualified for the USEF/Markel Young Horse National Championships where he finished in 8th place. His year-end median score also tied him for the American Hanoverian Society’s USEF Four Year Old Division Championship. This past season he commandingly won both the USDF Region 1 Championships and the US Dressage Finals at First Level with scores ranging from 70.7%-80.7% over the course of the year. This winter he debuted at Third Level and in the FEI Six-Year Old tests in Florida.

Sternlicht is by the popular young stallion Soliman de Hus. This popular Sandro Hit-Donnerhall son was champion of his licensing. He won his 30-day test with scores over 8 on all three gaits and earned a 9.63 on rideability. As a six-year old he was 9th in the German Championships and at eight years old he was winning at Prix St. Georges with scores up to 71% and ranked 5th at his first CDI competition at Saumur. Sternlicht is out of an Elite Mare by Rascalino. She is an eighth generation Elite Mare and her dam is a full sister to the Champion mare SPS Wisconsin.

Sternlicht’s first foals arrived the spring of 2015 and we’re consistently seeing his beautiful modern type. Sternlicht already has numerous Premium Foals to his credit and multiple Inspection Site Champions. At the prestigious Dressage At Devon, Steinbeck HTF (ds. Royal Prince) won the Colts of 2015 class with a score of 80.7%. He went on to be Reserve Champion Foal and win the Hanoverian 2 & Under class.
