Last week the top sire and world class athlete Embassy I fell ill. Immediately he was admitted to the University of Veterinary Medicine in Hannover, where the veterinarians diagnosed a CNS damage. To spare him more arduous days in the hospital, the State Stud decided to put the 19-year-old stallion down.
Embassy I had a successful sport and breeding career. This gorgeous stallion spent his early days in the stud in Hunnesrück and began his career in the performance test in Adelheidsdorf. In 2000 he mastered his 300-day test with bravery and since 2001 Embassy I spent his active years at the breeding stations Roydorf, Dorum, Bargstedt and finally in Celle.
In 2009 his outstanding father, Escudo I became Hanoverian Stallion of the Year and his mother, Sammy Jo became Hanoverian Mare of the Year 2012. With his incredible success, his brother Embassy II, belongs to one of the most successful jumping horses in the world. Embassy III has won several jumping competitions in level M furthermore he can report victories in dressage competitions in difficult classes.
All in all Embassy I sired 656 foals and currently 292 highly successful offsprings are competing in all disciplines up to difficult classes. In 2007 his daughter „St.Pr. Estelle“ became the best mare at the „Herwart von der Decken-Schau“.
His Son Edward celebrated, already with seven years, victories in dressage competitions up to the high class. His successful daughter SAP Escada FRH won the team gold and individual silver medal with Ingrid Klimke at the eventing championships in Malmö 2013. In 2014 the successful pair came on second place at the CICO*** in Aachen and in 2015 they celebrated their victory in Luhmühlen at the five star eventing competition, which is one of the toughest competitions in the world.
In 2010 Embassy I was awarded with the Grande-Prize for this successful breeding career.
Thank you Embassy!
