Orion's dam, Oliva, was imported from Germany in the fall of 2008, as a complement to the genetic base of our broodmare herd.
She came with the very best recommendations from the 2008 central mare grading in Germany, where she was not only the unquestioned champion, but also the best Anglo-Trakehner filly of the Neue Lander/South region. She is one of the few Trakehner daughters of TB Prince Thatch.
orion's sire, Grand Passion was proclaimed champion of the 2007 Trakehner Stallion Licensing in Neumunster, Germany, in October 2007.
"Grand Passion is a stallion with the conformation of a foundation sire. He encorporates that special thing and has everything to be a licensing champion," Lars Gehrmann said.
Grand Passion impresses with his beauty and super basic gaits. His canter earned a 10 at the Trakehner Championship in Germany.
Grand Passion is by Oliver Twist, out of State Premium mare Gipsy Rose (by Polarion). He is bred by Gestut Heinen-Bönninghardt from Issum, Germany, and sold at the licensing auction for the record price of 300,000 euro.
