At the Westphalian licensing 2010, in Münster-Handorf, this stallion fascinated the audience. The premium stallion Franziskus already started his career as winner of the German Foal Championship qualification. An excellent type with naturally uphill conformation, a first class division of the body with sufficient harmony and correctness predestine this stallion for a brilliant future in competitive dressage. He has three excellent basic paces: a perfect walk, a dynamic trot and a fantastic uphill canter.
The sire Fidertanz started his phenomenal career in the year 2004 as NRW-Champion Stallion in Münster-Handorf. In 2005 Fidertanz won his 30-day-test in Neustadt/Dosse with best results and became Vice Bundeschampion with a top score of 9.5 in test-riding.
In the year 2006, he received the 1a-premium for dressage-stallions at the Oldenburg-licensing in Vechta. In the meantime, Fidertanz has been trained up to the advanced level in dressage.
The dam, Antara, produced with De Niro the licensed stallion Dementi, who is successful on the advanced dressage level. The dam’s sire is the former Bundeschampion of German Dressage Horses, Alabaster. The third and fourth generation of the pedigree is refined by the internationally successful top-stallions Rubinstein I rsp. Grundstein I. The dam line is based on the Irish thoroughbred-mare Daffy Toban xx (v. Go Tabann xx-Mustang xx-Flamenco xx etc,, thoroughbred-familiy 2). Some of the stallions out of this line, which is followed by the breeding-familiy Albers since mid of 1970, are e.g. Count on Me (PB Denmark), Grafenstein (PB Oldenburg, State Stud Redefin and Marbach) rsp. Winston (PB Hannover, State Stud Celle), as well as the international sport horses Grand Giraud/Alexandra Simons-de Ridder rsp. Calman, who won the “Goldene Peitsche” in Nörten-Hardenberg under the saddle of Rolf Moormann.
In 2015 Franziskus won in the dressage KL S ** Inter I under Ingrid Klimke and has 11 licensed sons. Already in 2016 he won another dressage KL S * and was highly placed.
