Kwahu comes from the breeding of Ines Eisold in Ahrensfelde-Mehrow in Brandenburg and was the most expensive foal at the auction 2016 in Neumünster. There he was sold to the estate Rosenau in Dreieich near Frankfurt am Main and grew up as a stallion prospect in Schäplitz, Saxony-Anhalt.
The black-brown young stallion had to retire from the licensing in Neumünster after the examination on hard ground because of an acute hoof ulcer. At this point he was already discussed as a premium favourite because of his appearance in the preselection and on the triangle.

He was able to live up to this assessment again at the special licensing appointment.

The licensing commission, consisting of Gisela Gunia, Dr. Hans-Peter Karp, August Camp and breeding director Lars Gehrmann, awarded the stallion as a premium stallion, which has been possible at such appointments for several years according to the board’s decision.
After the stallion market Kwahu had already changed into the owners’ association Margit Eisner and Wolfgang Diehm.

The 14-day-test was planned for 2020 in order to meet the requirements for breeding, but the stallion performance tests were cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic. Now Kwahu has been provisionally registered in the Stallion Book I. As soon as possible, the stallion will make up for all necessary proof of personal performance in accordance with the breeding association’s regulations (ZVO).

At the licensing, the breeding director described the stallion as follows: “Unambiguously type-strong and expressively prepared premium stallion, who presents himself in a closed frame with lots of presentation and stable top line. This includes a good neckline, a pronounced saddle position and well-formed hindquarters. The foundation is light, the hooves are still fit to the body. The step is regulated and expansive. Outstanding is the inrush and movement mechanics in the trot and canter, as well as the natural uphill, while the shoulder room of the upper arm is spectacular. Due to its body closure, the hind leg remains under the centre of gravity. Even when jumping free he moves with overview and type through the body.”
During the stallion presentation at the spring licensing in Münster-Handorf in 2019, Lars Gehrmann again introduced the premium stallion: “This is an extraordinary son of Millennium’s, who has an ideal genetic connection in his pedigree through Münchhausen on the dam’s side.” The breeding director continued: “This basic rideability, this willingness to perform as well as the quality of movement are accordingly impressive.”

His first foal crop in 2020 is convincing all around. Among his offspring is Top Secret, the epitome of a stallion candidate. The brown son out of Tacco by E.H. Cadeau was bred by the Gellhaar family from Steinau. The stallion was the second most expensive foal at the Trakehner auction, and the best stallion registered in Hörstein.

At the foal championships in Rhineland-Palatinate, the youngster also provided the winner of the colts. The 2020 champion comes out of the state premium, premium, and elite mare Acelya and was bred by Bernd Eisenmenger from Bubenheim.


Kwahu’s mother Kalinowska by Münchhausen is a daughter of the highly decorated Kasixta by the Hörstein elite stallion Sixtus. E.H. Sixtus is a typical black sorrel in the ideal format and with the best division, a large-scale construction with a large shoulder and a good connection. Highest quality of movement with excellent activity of the hindquarters, a rare gift at the jump and a performance-tested and fertile bloodline make this stallion a highly interesting athlete and sire.

Kwahu’s father is the exceptional stallion Millennium. In the autumn of 2014, the second reserve champion of his licensing made an impressive debut as a stallion father and placed both in Neumünster and in Vechta (Oldenburg) with Sir Zanzibar and Morricone becoming the champion stallions. The following year, Millennium delivered the first reserve winner of the Trakehner licensing with Helium and the second reserve winner with Halleluja. Both in 2016 (His Moment) and 2017, he once delivered the champion stallions of the Trakehner stallion market again. In addition, in 2017, he provided a premium stallion in Verden and the Westphalian premium stallion Maracaná, who became the top-prized stallion nationwide. Even in 2018 there was hardly any licensing without a Millennium son. In Neumünster, Redefin, Marbach and Oldenburg his sons were awarded with premiums. Meanwhile, the number of his licensed sons has grown to over 40, which no other stallion his age has managed before him.
His daughters have also made a name for themselves. In 2015, Heavenly Brown was winner mare of the year, daughter Belle Fleur achieved the same in 2018 after she had already taken second place in the German mare championships.
Last year, the oldest descendants were six years old and collected first victories and placements in riding and dressage horse tests up to the World Championships for Young Dressage Horses.
