Stakkato, Hanoverian Stallion of the Year 2007
The Spartan x Pygmalion-son Stakkato has been proclaimed "Hanoverian Stallion of the Year 2007". On the occasion of the 2007 Hanoverian Stallion Licensing, the Hanoverian Society and the R + V insurance company honoured his breeder August Meyer from Uenzen with the Wohlklang-statuette and a cheque. Stakkato is an active breeding stallion for the Celle State Stud, but also an active international competition horse under Eva Bitter. Stakkato presented exceptional and spectacular free jumping skills during the licensing in Verden so that Dr. Burchard Bade purchased him for the Celle State Stud. He was the best jumper at his stallion performance test. He won the Federal Championships of German show jumpers in Warendorf in 1998 and developped into the best show jumping stallion in the Hanoverian breeding area. In 1999, he earned the vice championship title. Four years later, the bay stallion won the German Champi-onship in the ladies' division under Eva Bitter. Apart from countless international top placements, Stakkato competed five times for the German Nation's Cup team. One of his outstanding successes was this year's second place at the highly renowned Nörten-Hardenberg Grand Prix. (Read More)
