FrontMan HW’s sire is the premium stallion Franziskus, he impressed the spectators at the Westphalian licensing in 2010.
He has a brilliant type, a perfect frame as well as a harmonious and correct exterior. His basic gaits are perfect: He walks with diligence and beat, he trots with impulsion and forward thrust and he canters uphill. Franziskus was already very good as a foal. He won the qualification to the German foal-championships.

The test rider gave him even 9.5 points for rideability.
Continuing his life of success, Franziskus soon became Bundeschampion of the 4-year-old riding stallions with top marks when he was presented by both his own and by foreign riders in 2012.

Franziskus’ sire Fidertanz began his career by winning the Westphalian licensing and the 30-days-test in Neustadt/Dosse.
He was runner up at the “Bundeschampionat” and was the main premium award winner in 2006. Since then, Fidertanz has placed in many advanced dressage classes.
His dam, Antara, has also produced the licensed stallion Dementi, who is successful in advanced dressage competitions as well.
His Dam’s sire, Alabaster, was “Bundeschampion” of young dressage horses.
In the third and fourth generation, there are the international sport horses, and important stallions, Rubinstein I and Grundstein I.
The basis of the dam line is the Irish thoroughbred mare Daffy Toban xx (by Go Tobann xx-Mustang xx, family 2). That line produced the sires Count on Me, Grafenstein and Winston hervor, as well as the international sport horses Grand Giraud (Alexandra Simons-de Ridder) and Calman, who won the Grand Prix of Nörten-Hardenberg with Rolf Moormann.
Franziskus’ sire, Fidertanz, started his phenomenal career in the year 2004 as NRW-Champion Stallion in Münster-Handorf. In 2005, Fidertanz won his 30-day-test in Neustadt/Dosse with excellent results, and became Vice Bundeschampion with a top score of 9.5 in test-riding. In the year 2006, Fidertanz won the High Premium award for dressage-stallions at the Oldenburg-licensing in Vechta. In the meantime, Fidertanz has been trained up to the advanced level in dressage.
Franziskus’ dam, Antara, produced with De Niro the licensed stallion Dementi, who is successful at the advanced dressage S Level. The dam’s sire is the former Bundeschampion of German Dressage Horses, Alabaster. The third and fourth generation of the pedigree is refined by the internationally successful top-stallions Rubinstein I and Grundstein I. The dam line is based on the Irish thoroughbred-mare Daffy Toban xx (v. Go Tabann xx-Mustang xx-Flamenco xx etc,, thoroughbred-familiy 2). Some of the stallions out of this line (which is followed by the breeding-familiy Albers since the mid 1970’s) are e.g. Count on Me (PB Denmark), Grafenstein (PB Oldenburg, State Stud Redefin and Marbach), Winston (PB Hannover, State Stud Celle), as well as the international sport horses Grand Giraud/Alexandra Simons-de Ridder and Calman, who won the “Goldene Peitsche” in Nörten-Hardenberg under the saddle of Rolf Moormann.
FrontMan HW is super pretty, stallion looks (he’s a gelding), chiseled small face, huge neck and elegant, modern type, he will just look at you with his soft eyes and cast his love spell. The judges will recognize him due to his expression and “show me” attitude, take him to shows and collect your ribbons.
Show him off at clinics and get yourself noticed. He is fun all around. He is progressing really nicely, raised and correctly handled all his life, in knowledgable hands and daily attention to all details.
He grew up in a small stallion herd and is used to paddock time and was socialized correctly. He is an all around super boy, looking for his new mommy.
FrontMan HW, is a phenomenal dressage gelding, super athletic and fun!
