About - Escolar has been the talk of the breeding world in recent times, thanks to both his outstanding sport performances, and his up-and-coming offspring. He is a tall, large-framed, and powerful stallion, with expressive, ground-covering movement.
Performance - In 2012 Escolar made his debut at shows with results that would be hard to beat, winning one class after another, in Lingen, Cloppenburg and Münster-Handorf, where the judges didn't hesitate to give the highest possible score of 10.0. Just decorated with the Westphalian champion title, Escolar and his trainer, Hermann Burger, went to Warendorf where they took the Bundeschampionat title for three-year old stallions. "What you see here is the best possible development of impulsion, cadence and perfect rhythm", commented Dr. Dietrich Plewa in the name of the judges who pulled a 10.0 out of their hats for his trot and canter. They also gave him a very good 9.0 for his state of training and the harmony of his presentation, an 8.5 for conformation and an 8.0 for his walk. Even the guest riders, Kim Pfeiffer and Marcus Hermes, were impressed and gave him 19.5 of 20 possible points.
Escolar made his international debut at Aachen CDI4* in 2016, scoring over 73% in both the PSG and Inter I classes to finish fourth and second. In 2017, he returned and scored +70% again. In 2017 Escolar was second (and crowd favourite) of the finals of the Nurnberger Burgpokal trophy on over 77%.
Sire - His sire Estobar was the champion of the 2006 Westfalien licensing, selling for €535,000, and competed up to grand prix. He is the full brother of licensed stallions Eichendorff and Ehrendorf, who also both competed at the highest level. Their sire Ehrentusch was famed for his temperament and rideability and also produced the state stud stallion Ehrentanz. Ehrentusch was the champion of the 1987 stallion performance test at Warendorf, finishing first in both the dressage and jumping sections. At the 1989 DLG show in Frankfurt, he was reserve only to Weltmeyer. The 'E' Line has produced a number of successful sport horses in both jumping and dressage, and Ehrentusch's full brother was Klaus Balkenhol’s international dressage star, Ehrengold.
Damline - Escolar's dam is by the popular Fürst Piccolo, a son of the great Fidermark I. Fürst Piccolo competed to small tour, and is out of the same mare as the licensed stallions Fürst Fohlenhof and Brioni Pur. He has already sired several grand prix horses and has more than a dozen licensed sons including Furst Kiss and premium stallion Fleury. The damline has produced many good sport horses including the grand prix horse Dressman 55. Escolar's full brother Escoril is also competing at small tour.
Offspring - Escolar's oldest offspring are turning four in 2018, and he already has 12 licensed sons. Among them are Escalito, reserve champion of the 2017 Westphalian licensing, Erdinger, and premium stallions El Corazon, Emilio and Escamillo. His offspring are tall, powerful models with fantastic gaits and temperaments.
