Erdinger is large-framed and impressive, from the breeding of FC Bayern München trainer Hermann Gerland: he is definitely stamped by his strong sire, Escolar. Erdinger shows the same impressive self-carriage and rhythm as his sire. AHe is an energetic stallion that convinces with always engaged hindquarters and great mechanic in trot as well as an uphill canter and a walk, supple moving through the entire body swinging in rhythm with the gait. In 2017, as expected, he was striking at his 14-day test in Neustadt (Dosse) where he finished the test as the clear victor of the dressage index with top scores: a 9.5 for trot and an 8.87 in total. We eagerly await his first crop in 2018.
The sire Escolar, who characterized Erdinger clearly, was twice Bundeschampion of young stallions under Hermann Burger in 2012 and 2013. In the meantime, he is victorious up to Inter I classes under Hubertus Schmidt. Just recently they placed second in the 2017’ Nürnberg Burg Trophy in Frankfurt. Everywhere, his offspring attract attention as far above-average dressage horses, who dominate the national championships and Bundeschampionate and place their sire on a top position in the predicted breeding value statistics. The dam produced also the licensed son Puerto Rico (by Peking) and other dressage and show jumping horses for the upper classes, such as Davy Jones (by Don Laurie I) under Victoria Suppert, who succeeded internationally up to Inter II level, or Fernando (by Fürst Piccolo), who was finalist at the foal championship in Lienen and is now on the way into the grand dressage arena.
The stallion performance test winning dam’s sire Contender is one of the most demanded and most proven sires in Germany. His offspring earned prize money of more than 9.3 million Euro in all disciplines. Nearly 130 sons are licensed in Germany alone. The great grandsire Coriander is well-known for the versatility of the Holsteiner horse. As a successful grand prix horse, he is distinguished with an outstanding jumping-ability and is esteemed as sire of the very best Holsteiner talents.
