KER: Principles of Bone Development in Horses

"Few animals are as precocious as the horse. Within 20 minutes of birth a foal may stand, and within hours can be ready to run at speeds no human athlete will ever achieve. At this stage of life, even with this exceptionally early development, horses have only 17% of their mature bone mineral content, but they also have only 10% of their ultimate body weight." That's the start of a really interesting article from Kentucky Equine Nutrition that covers bone development and growth rate in foals. ...read more

Sternlicht

3x US National Champion & USDF All-Breeds Winner
Sternlicht epitomizes the modern sport horse with his beautiful type, movement, and confident character. His impressive competition record includes placing 3rd at the USEF FEI Six-Year-Old National Championships and winning the US Dressage Finals at First, Third, & Prix St. Georges Levels. He has won multiple USDF Regional Championships and top finishes for All-Breeds awards and has been selected for the USEF Development List. As Sternlicht prepares for his move into the Developing Grand Prix division, he shows a promising future as a top international horse.

Sternlicht’s sire, Soliman de Hus, was Champion of his licensing and Performance Test. He is well regarded for the type, character, and rideability he consistently offers and Soliman de Hus has many approved stallions and high-priced auction horses to his record. Soliman himself has competed to the Grand Prix level and with Sternlicht coming from his second foal crop, we’re very excited to watch his offspring follow in his footsteps. Grandsire Sandro Hit is currently ranked #3 in the world on the WBFSH Dressage Sire Rankings. Great-grandsire Donnerhall has created his own legend through not only being a top international Grand Prix horse, but more importantly through his massive influence on all of dressage breeding.

Sternlicht’s dam is an eighth generation Elite/SPS Mare. She has produced two licensed stallions and her sister has also produced an FEI stallion. The quality of this mare family consistently comes through the generations. Grandsire Rascalino was winner of his performance testing in Germany with an overall score of 148.29 and 153.37 points in Dressage. He carries on the popular Rubinstein line which is so well regarded for rideability.

Sternlicht’s first foals arrived the spring of 2015 and we’re consistently seeing his beautiful modern type, long legs, and exceptional canter. He has sired a number of Premium Foals and Inspection Site Champions as well as USDF breed show winners. During the 2018 Dressage at Devon, Sternlicht daughters Savannah HTF and Sundancer BHF took the top two positions in the USDF East Coast Filly Championships.

Across a wide variety of mares, we see Sternlicht’s positive contribution in his breedings. His offspring impress us as much as he does and if you are looking to add length of leg, an uphill frame, and a strong topline, you cannot go wrong with choosing Sternlicht for your mare.
