PEDIGREE
HG Solomon
is extremely closely related to the 1976 Champion Stallion in Neumünster Schiwago. They are both from the same dam Holme Grove Schlobitten and the difference in sires is that HG Solomon’s sire Fernando is grandson to Schiwago’s sire Tannenberg. His dam Holme Grove Schlobitten is from the Mare family Schwalbe by Totilas

PERFORMANCE
Holme Grove Solomon
is a fully performance tested stallion who was competed in Dressage as a five year old gaining 161 points in one season, qualifying for the National Championships at Elementary level and winning at Medium level in his one and only competition in the March as a six year old. HG Solomon was retired to stud early due to serious illness of his rider/breeder’s husband. Although after a three year break he spent some winter months training up to Advanced level, he had already shown considerable talent for Piaffe and Passage as a five year old, which he has show during ridden displays in recent years. He is a remarkable stallion who at only 14 years old has already had tremendous successes as a sire. He is approved by the TBF, BWBS and SHB of GB (HIS).
