At his Trakehner Licensing, Herzensdieb was awarded Champion Stallion. “This stallion is not just moving, but dancing,” was the enthusiastic comment.

Herzensdieb has an FN breeding value dressage of 142 points and is in the top 10% of German dressage sires. He was honored with the prestigious Elite Hengst title (E.H.) by the Trakehner Verband. Herzensdieb stamps his offspring with his elegant type and exceptional rideability. Many daughters including Heartbreaker and Helmi have won honors at large mare shows throughout Germany.
