About - Finest Selection is a superb young stallion who brings blood, type and movement along with an excellent pedigree. At over 40% blood, he is an elegant and modern stamp ideal for heavier, old-fashioned mares. He was the easy winner of the dressage section in his performance test, scoring 9 for character, 9.5 for trot, and 9 for canter and walk for an overall score of 9.29.
Sire - Follow Me OLD is a relatively young stallion who has already impressed breeders under saddle. He was the champion of his licensing, and followed this up with the reserve Hauptprämie the next year. He was then state champion, and qualified easily for the Bundeschampionat. His sire Fürstenball is the most successful son of Fürst Heinrich, whose daughter Woodlander Farouche was double World Young Horse Champion and is unbeaten internationally. He competed to Inter I himself and was the sire of the 2016 Champion and Reserve Champion of the Oldenburg licensing, and has a total of 40 licensed sons.
Damline - Damsire Lauries Crusador is one of the most prolific Thoroughbred stallions used in sport horse breeding. He has over 60 licensed sons and has produced numerous grand prix dressage horses, including Laurentianer, Le Primeur and Liberty. Third sire Donnerhall needs no introduction, and appears for the third time in Finest Selection's pedigree, as Follow Me already brings in two doses. Donnerhall is the grandfather of modern dressage, appearing in the bloodline of almost every top horse on the circuit. The dam line has also produced the licensed stallions Blue Hors Fletcher, Lexus TC, Furstenhof, Dubloon and Lago Casablanca.
