Faelen SH is a beautifully bred, three year old (not backed yet) bay Hanoverian gelding (born May of 2015) sired by the lovely Imported 16.2 H.H Hanoverian stallion Fabregas (Florencio /De Niro).
Faelen has a lovely head, three quality gaits and remarks were made on the fact he has a very good walk. Faelen was noted as overall a very nice colt from Inga Hamilton during his on farm inspection.
Faelen would do well for anyone looking for a quality gelding for the sport of Dressage. We hope to find him a home with a professional, as we believe him to be a colt with a lot of potential, however he is a modern “sensitive” type so we would not recommend him to an amateur (at this point) unless they have the assistance of a professional to assist in bringing him along.
You may view footage of Faelen’s dam Laura and some of Faelen’s half siblings also on this website.
Fabregas’s pedigree has some of the best Bloodlines in Europe with his sire Florencio (Floristan), Dam Sire De Niro (Donnerhall) and also the famous Weltmeyer.
Fabregas was Dressage Reserve Champion of his Adelheidsdorf 70 day performance test in 2009 with a result of 134.27 points.
In 2011 he was winner of two L level Dressage Riding Horse Classes in Germany scoring 8.0 and 8.1 respectively.
From his first foal crop Fabregas produced Champion and Reserve Champion in a 70 entrant foal inspection/show in Germany. He also sired Champion filly in the 2010 British Hanoverian Society’s foal show. Judge’s comments on these foals were that they are “very correct, elastic with great walks”. Only two years later his first licensed son was announced at Redefin, Germany which underlines this stallion’s impressive breeding quality.
Fabregas’s 2012 debute year in Canada and the USA (Devon) exceeded already high expectations with many 1st place ribbons in “Second Level” and “6 Year Old FEI” classes. His canter and especially his walk were very strong with different judges scoring up to 8.5. In 2013 Fabregas consistently scored over 70% and was always in the Championship ribbons at 3rd level.
Fabregas’s first North American foals have followed the trend set by his European breedings with several making the final ring in their perspective foal shows. In 2014 a fellow breeder’s Fidertanz mare delivered an outstanding colt by Fabregas. He was the site inspection winner and was sold to an American Grand Prix rider at just 2 weeks old.
In 2015 Fabregas is trained and showing PSG / I1 level dressage and winning several tests at the Nationals including a Small Tour Championship. He performed very well in the CDIs winning ribbons at Saugerties, NY and Devon, PE.
Laura is a lovely 16.1 H.H Imported Hanoverian mare sired by Longchamp out of a Maurice /Wenzel I /Absatz mother.
She has been performance tested, receiving 8 on character, temperament, trot, walk and rideability, for an overall score of 7.29.
Laura was selected for the European Foal Championships as a youngster and is a very graceful and elegant mare.
At the 2003 VhW foal inspections Laura was cited by the jury as “the modern Hanoverian type… with ground covering gaits, good activity behind, and very good frame and carriage.”
Dam Laura is the heart and soul of our farm. She has produced many top foals for us over the years with a variety of stallions.
Laura’s 2006 colt Bergren, sired by Bergamon received the award for Champion Colt at his site Inspection.
In 2008 Laura’s De Niro Filly Denchampira “AKA” Diva was awarded Champion Filly at her site Inspection.
In 2009, another Laura / De Niro breeding resulted in our Detyana, receiving the award for Top Filly and Top Foal Overall. This foal we kept.
2013 – We are pleased to say that the 2009 filly Detyana that we kept was presented that September at the Hanoverian Inspection as a four year old. She had a good show in all three parts of her Mare Performance Test so that she finished with an overall score of 7.75 taking first place with the top score of the MPT and was awarded the title of Premium Mare Candidate! (formerly known as Elite Mare Candidate). She also won the Hanoverian Mare Show.
Also in 2013, our 2008 Filly “Diva” from Laura who was sold to Quebec, made us proud at Beaulieu Dressage Classic gold level show in August 2013. She won all her classes with very good scores. This was her first recognized competition and second show to date.
All of Laura’s foals that have been presented at inspections have been called back in the top five at all the site inspections we have attended so far, all have been large groups of foals (around 20 plus foals per inspection). Laura is truly a wonderful producer passing on elegance, movement, lovely correct conformation and fantastic minds. She is also a fantastic mother.
This gelding is offered for sale at $ 13,000.00 USD. This bargain price reflects the statement below: however this does not reflect his quality. This is a very nice horse for the price.
Please note: prior to listing Faelen, we had x-rays done as a Pre – PPE. An imperfection was noticed on x-ray so we then had a Full set of X-rays (including stifles which were not affected) done at the University of Montreal St Hyacinth Equine Hospital.
These x-rays will be available for review to serious buyer (s) through their veterinarian during PPE.
Although the X-rays were not perfect, the minor imperfections (chips) never caused any discomfort or soundness issues before or after surgery. The findings were dealt with promptly, properly and professionally in May of 2017. The surgeon’s report states prognosis for future performance is excellent (this report will be made available along side the x-rays).
Faelen is registered and branded with the Hanoverian Verband.
