Tarison's pedigree is very convincing regarding the sports aspect. His father 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. Regarding sports aspects, Tarison descends a clever reasoned breeding with three S-level jumping stallions as he not only maintains Hirtentanz but also Humanus and Caanitz on mother's side in his pedigree. Both have been successfully taking part in jumping tournaments up to level S.

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. The double predisposed stallion with strong nerves from the Hörstein stud enjoys great popularity within the breeders. From his first crop of foals (2012) Tarison provided several auction foals for the Bundesturnier and the stallion market. Tarison's foals are consistently embossed by him and are distinguished with high athleticism. They have a sublime appearance, a clear uphill tendency and plenty of body with a nicely carried neck as well as a big shaped hindquarter.

During the last years, Tarison provided premier foals, winning foals and auction foals over and over again, such as a son in 2015 from premier mare Thalea by E.H. Cadeau (breeder: Udo Schmidt, Steinau), who is currently brought up in Hörstein in view of the approval. In 2015 Tarison also provided a winning foal: A stallion from Time at Time xx (breeder: Martina Hölzel). In 2016 he provided three premier foals in Hörstein alone.

In 2015, the first mares by Tarison were presented for the studbook registration. Gianduia (breeder: Dr. Brigitte Westbrock) stood out in particular: she became reserve winner at the central studbook registration and best jumping mare. Now she is being trained in the stable of Kai-Steffen Meyer. With her rider she already gained lots of victories and rankings in the Belgian eventing. By now, four more daughters of Tarison have been registrated in the studbook. Among them for example Morrigan, who became winner of the four-year-old and older in Rheinland.

In 2016, Tarison's son Varos picked up third price at the Hörsteiner free jumping championship. In the same year, his son Trotha got qualified for the approval of the stallion market. The half-breed got good assessments there. Lars Gehrmann described him as 'excellently typed with a harmonius appearance'. The breeding manager praised his presentation at free jumping and the 'outstanding gallopade'. Trotha is an insider tip for a future sports career in eventing.
