Licensed for: Hanoverian, Holsteiner, Mecklenburg, Oldenburg, Rhinelander, Westphalian, Southern Germany Breeding Associations.
The description from Andreas Helgstrand:
A stallion with three exceptional gaits. Be Sure always presents himself in an uphill and balanced manner with a lot of power. He has a lot of qualities that make him desirable for dressage sport and this noble bay stallion, with his amazing presence, was not only called to the premium ring of the year’s best stallions in Verden, but was also by far one of the most sought-after stallions at auction. He was sold for the second highest price of the auction to Helgstrand Dressage who is excited to secure this jewel of a stallion for their breeding program.
His sire, Benicio, won competitions up to Grand Prix with Jessica Lynn Thomas/SWE and in 2011 he was German Bundeschampion of the six-year-old dressage horses. He has produced around 20 licensed stallions, including the Oldenburg Champion Stallion Bonds/Beatrice Hoffrogge, as well as the premium stallions Ben Benicio, By Your Side, Best Buddy, and Be Sure. Bon Vivaldi NRW was bronze medalist at the Riding Horse Championships (3 y.o.) in 2019, and Brighton secured silver (4 y.o.) in 2020. Brasilia (3 y.o.) already won the silver medal in 2016. His dam Hanoverian .Pr.St. Susi Sorglos was champion mare of the show in Grossenwörden and placed at the Herwart von der Decken show (Ib) in 2017.
His dam’s sire Scuderia was Reserve Champion of the Oldenburg Spring Licensing in 2012 and is internationally successful in Young Rider dressage competitions. Four of his sons have been licensed. With Scarlett O’Hara, he produced the current Vice Westphalian Champion, who also came tenth at the German Championships
The thoroughbred dressage line founder Lauries Crusador xx appears in the third generation of the pedigree. His grand-dam St.Pr.St. Lady Laurie is the full sister of the licensed stallion Le
Louvre. She was also successful at the Herwart von der Decken show (Ic) and was named best half-blood mare in Elmlohe in 2008 and 2009.
