Tarison's pedigree is very convincing regarding the sports aspect. Hirtentanz, approved for the Holstein Association and victorious in show jumping up to S level, and Axis TSF, victorious up to the highest levels of dressage, are well-known in Trakehner breeding and represent the current success of the dynasty of the elite stallions Sixtus - Habicht. A line of sires that has its origins at Gestüt Hörstein and has been successfully established from here.
Tarison descends from a pairing with the three S-level jumper stallions Hirtentanz, Humanus and Caanitz in a descending line of generations, a pairing that was well-conceived regarding the sports aspect. Tarison's descending dam line has something special to offer, too. Both the dam's sire Humanus and the dam's dam's sire Caanitz have successfully competed in national and international show jumping up to advanced (S) level. Caanitz' dam is the state premium and premium mare Couleur by Kassiber. She was the impressive champion at the mare registration in Schleswig-Holstein and received excellent scores at the 1st Federal Mare Show for German Riding Horses, 3rd Mare Show in the Breeding District Rhineland, 2nd Federal Trakehner Mare Show, 2nd Federal Mare Show for German Riding Horses and the DLG Show in Frankfurt/Main. The dam Tiara VI was herself a successful show jumper up to intermediate level.
Traversale by Caanitz, a full sister of the granddam Tarabiscote, was also the dam of Troubadour (by Humanus) who was successful at S-level dressage. The jumper sire Titulus by Kasparow is descended from the same mare line and was the best show jumper at his approval.
Tarison successfully passed his 70-day test. Particularly during the training, the son of Hirtentanz was able to convince the external judges and gained good scores. He received a score of 9.0 for his character and 8.5 for his temperament and willingness to work, respectively. His consitution and jumping ability also gained him a score of 8.5, respectively. In the cross-country section he scored 8.25, and he received an 8.0 for his canter. In the final cross-country test the stallion's performance was acknowledged with a score of 8.0. For his jumping ability he received a score of 8.5 in the final cross-country test. With these excellent results, the stallion will be available for breeders in the next few years to be used for successful sport horse breeding. Tarison's first crop of foals is due in 2012 and eagerly awaited.
The offspring of the stallion Tarison of Hörstein was consistently positive evaluated by Lars Gehrmann, the breeding director of the Trakehner Association. Tarison is very in vogue by the breeders. The stallion represented serveral auction foals of its first offspring for the federal tournament and the stallion market.
