Bernstein’s sire Bonds was named Oldenburg Champion Stallion in 2015 and earned impressive scores of 9.12 and 9.28 at his sport tests in 2017 and 2018. Bonds currently competes at advanced level and has five licensed sons to his credit. Grandsire Benicio, was winner of the Bundeschampionat, earned an unprecented 9.88 in dressage at this stallion test, and developed into an accomplished FEI horse. He is highly regarded as a sire with 25 licensed stallions and is highly ranked on both the German FN and Hanoverian Verband Dressage Sire Ranking lists.
Bernstein’s dam Sunshine M is by the influential stallion Quaterback. Quaterback has numerous offspring competing internationally at Grand Prix, including Hilltop Farm’s Qredit, and he is currently ranked #5 in the world on the WBFSH Dressage Sire Rankings. Sunshine M’s damline is the exceptional Elfenblume line from Germany. We know this family well as the special mares Elfenfeuer and Raureif also stem from this line.
Bernstein instantly captures your attention with his three high-quality basic paces, excellent type, and outstanding temperament. He is a model athlete with an excellent neck conformation, great shoulder freedom, a strong back and a lot of power. The outstanding trot and canter work is always uphill and his clear four-beat walk offers excellent ground cover. Combined with his exciting pedigree that is rooted in an exceptional damline, we believe Bernstein is a fantastic addition for both breeding and sport in North America. Bernstein completed the Danish Warmblood 35-Day Stallion Performance Test, earning multiple scores of 8.0 and a score of 8.5 for capacity from his guest rider. In 2022, he added Hanoverian and Rhineland to his list of approvals as well.
The first Bernstein foals arrived in Europe in 2022 and were well received by breeders. As anticipated, they consistently show his beautiful type and expression. Bernstein’s first breeding season in North America has been very successful, with numerous breeders across the country expecting Bernstein foals out of a wide variety of mares.
