Touch My Heart was characterized as the best of the partbred on his licensing in 2011 in Neumünster. Lars Gehrmann, breeding director of the Trakehner Verband, enthusiastically said, “As a royal three-fourths blood this son of Herzruf is a breeding rarity not only because of his parents’ quality; he is largely framed and strong, but also tough and athletic. Well matured in an important alignment his comfortable body stands on four big hooves and he moves with a lot of mechanics, especially with a long striding gallop.“

The dark brown stallion was solidly trained after his breeding. Despite a minor number of starts in competitions Touch My Heart could collect many placements. In 2012, he was a finalist in the Trakehner Championat of the four-year-olds at the Bundesturnier in Hannover.

Touch my heart successfully completed the 70-days-test in Neustadt/Dosse in 2013: character and temperament 9,0; motivation and rideability 8,5; cross country 8,5 and gallop 9,0 in the cross country competition. With a final score of 7.69 and a breed value index of 112 for dressage, his final graduation rank was fourth of all certified Trakehner stallions. The final score of 7.93 for dressage was particularly enjoyable as he became the fifth-best in a field of 35 stallions in Neustadt/ Dosse.

Touch my Hearts’s father Herzruf was a premium stallion at his licensing and won the stallion performance test with 150 points in great confidence. Herzruf has successfully participated in dressage competitions up to level S. In 2002, he was nominated as an elite stallion and in 2004 as the Trakehner stallion of the year. His most famous offspring is Ulla Salzgeber´s „Herzruf´s Erbe“. Further prosperous offsprings of Herzruf’s are also successful up to Grand Prix-level.

Herzruf´s father was the large framed Röttgener Königspark xx, who as well passed his large frame onto his offsprings. From age two to five, the sire started in 27 races and finished in the first place six times.

Touch My Heart´s mother is the valuable thoroughbred named Temple Touch XX. She stands out with a very high in-house effort: In six years she started more than 40 times and captured a victory six times. She is the mother of a lot of jumpers and eventing horses. Temple Touch XX is an absolute rarity in the German horse breeding – she is registered in all four stud books and until today the only thouroughbred mare in the Trakehner breeding.

Her father is Touching Wood XX. He won the Irish St. Leger, the English St. Leger (both are rank-one-races) and the Welsh Derby. He finished second at the English Derby. After two years in the stud in England, he was sold to New Zealand. Touching Wood XX is a son of Roberto XX, who was a Champion in England and Ireland at the age of two and three.

Touch my Heart’s foals are leggy, sporty and dynamic. In the first foal year of Touch my Heart outstanding premium foals could already be found. In 2013, two colts of Touch my Heart’s qualified for the foal championship in Graditz. From the breeding of the stud Terra Nova came Le Cour, a stallion out of a Karo As mother. Second winner was a joyous Touch my Heart son from the proven Maizauber daughter Venezia II, who showed  the best gallop of all presented foals, according to the judges (breeder: Heinz Schmook, Mellenbach).

Special Touch (B .: Meinen, Tann) was patterned and awarded in 2015 in Altenmarkt. In the same year, a colt was presented at the Lower Saxony foal championship (breeder: Gestüt Hämelschenburg).

In 2016, the three-year-old corona of Touch my Heart was registered in Westphalia. In the Bavarian Maienburg the also three-year-old Heart & Soul W was registered. She is a premium candidate and was the winner of the jumping-emphasized mares at the state mares show of the breeding district of Bavaria. Another daughter is a registered broodmare.

The Gestüt Hörstein had already leased Touch my Heart for the cover season 2018. The following year, the three-quarter-blooded stallion presented numerous premium foals on the big Hörsteiner mustering appointment. A son of Touch my Hearts from the proven Noblesse of Goldschmidt was also reserve winner of the entry (breeder: Martina Hölzel).
