Holme Park Legend is one of the best horses we have bred in 25 years and he is fully graded and performance tested with the Trakehner Verband in Germany.  Sadly as we have no rider to continue his competitive career we made the difficult decision to send him to Germany for showjumping training and standing at stud.  He is extremely talented in all three disciplines as well as of course a proven sire of beautiful foals.  Holme Park Legend has now been sold in Germany (22/2/2011) but will stay in training with Jens Hoffrogge. 

Holme Park Legend  is 3rd Generation British bred and the first young British stallion to be approved as a stallion by the Trakehner Verband in Germany. He is by the Premium mare Holme Park Liaison by the top German Dressage producer Elite Stallion Hohenstien.   Following an excellent 30 day Stallion Performance test in Germany he was invited to be presented for German grading  -    click here for his grading report from Lars Gehrman.
Following his successful 70 day Performance test in Schlieckau, Germany he scored well in all disciplines particularly his jumping.  On his return to UK in August 2007 he went to professional Event rider Sarah Bullimore where on his first competitive outing he qualified for the 4 year old PAVO Young Event Horse Championships.
This exciting young stallion has a most amazing attitude to his work being full of energy and wanting to please.  He has the all round abilities that make him valuable as both a dressage and jumping sire with such quality and beauty


Graded by the TBF in Sept 1998. HP Krug was the first stallion to be approval by the TBF for five years. He is also the very first stallion graded in this country that is second generation British Bred. We are now very proud that his son has become a 3rd Generation British Bred Stallion to be approved. Holme Park Legend is going into training with Jens Hoffrogge (Bronze-medalist at the 2010 German "Bundeschampionat" eventing) for the 2011 season and will commence his competitive showjumping career with him.  He appeared at the Trakehner Stallion Show 2011 Handorf-Munster on 12th February in front of 2000 spectators ridden by Jens Hoffrogge.  Photo from Stallion Show.  Legend did an amazing display at Equitana 2011 Hengst Show in Essen where he appeared with Kostolany.  Click here to see the Youtube video of this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eSqBLwl6ZG8

HP Legend’s
first foals arrived in 2009 and they have already proven he is a great sire passing on type and beauty to his offspring.  The oldest are now under saddle and showing amazing athletic ability and trainability.
