A Blast From the Past: All Star   |  31.05.2016


Here at Gestut Eichenhain we get so much attention for our current successes that we sometimes overlook our superstars that have moved on. Luckily for us the Hannoveraner Verband haven’t, and felt it was necessary to remind us of one of our own by making All Star V the cover story of the upcoming auction. All Star V  now a showjumping sensation with Denis Lynch, started his career here at Gestut Eichenhain when we bought him as a foal at the very auction he is now the cover story of. After seeing his potential at the tender age of 4 months we won the bidding war and welcomed this little colt into the Eichenhain family. We trained him up to international level but he has now been with Denis Lynch since 2012 and has a phenomenal track record. We love to see our horses from the past 

Connected Makes the Cover:   |  22.03.2016


Our 2016, licensed stallion, Connected (Contender x Corofino) made headlines at the Holstiener 84th Fruhjarhs Auktion in Elmshorn, last month. After a fantastic end to the 2015 summer season, in which he won numerous qualifiers for the National Championships and then went on to jump 3 foot perfect rounds in the Championships themselves to finish 7th, he naturally caught the eye of the Holstein Association. To our delight he made it onto the cover of the brochure together with our rider Harm Lahde and was also featured in the trailer. This lead to a great amount of client interest and resulted in him being one of the top sellers of the day. We believe we will see great things from this young talent in the future and wish his new owners the very best of luck! 

Cedrus Struts his Stuff:   |  12.02.2015



It was a proud moment for Gestut Eichenhain at the ZdPf Stallion Approval when our 2013, Calido x Pilot, stallion, Cedrus really showed us what he’s made of. He jumped his way to being declared a Premium Stallion and finished as reserve champion. Clearly this horse has what it take to be a success in breeding and the sport and we at Gestut Eichenhain cannot wait to see him strut his stuff under saddle later this month at the Hannoveraner Verband for the 3 and 4yo Approval.
