Warendorf in 1988: Total index 126,65. He is approved by Trakehner and all warmblood breeds in

Michelangelo's hereditary career has already been crowned by many heights. Many of his sons
were celebrated in the approval arenas in Germany as well as in the Netherlands and Denmark.
In his first breeding year, the champion stallion in Neum�nster,
Kennedy and Guy Laroche were
approved. Michelangelo's son Michelino, bred in the Netherlands, had been nominated elite
stallion in Denmark due to the success of his offspring in the sport. Back in germany two of his
sons were approved in 1998: reserve winner Hirtenruf and Kensington, a full brother to Kennedy.
The winning stallion 1998 Monteverdi descended from Michelangelo's
In the same year he supplied the Trakehner winner mare in the Netherlands. His daughter
Schneeflocke reached the highest price at auction that a mare ever reached in Neum�nster.
Moreover Michelangelo is father to the mother of the country-wide-winning mare Lantana.
Michelangelo supplied again two approved sons: H�lderin in Hungary in 1999 and premium stallion
Summertime in 2000. In 2001 the Oldenburg premium stallion
Mon Dieux by Michelangelo was approved.
More than 10 approved sons make Michelangelo world-wide one of the most sought after Trakehner
His pedigree stands for excellent, solid and prepotent traits. His sire, the thoroughbred
Pasteur xx, produced a number of outstanding dressage horses and
furthermore he is the sire of the century stallion Mahagoni.
Michelangelo's dam is the highly decorated premium, state premium and elite mare
Miami by Matador.
Michelangelo's dam is Elite, State Premium and Verband Premium mare

Reserve Grand Champion of the German National Trakehner Show and of the German National
Riding Horse Show and Grand Champion of the Trakehner State Championships Rhineland. She
also produced Verband approved sires Miami Vice and Monteverdi.
Brad Kerbs used her as example of a perfect conformation in a lecture on grading at the ATA AGM.
Her dam line Mira 281 (from Trakehnen's last director Ehlert) delivered among others approval
champion Morgenglanz, Reserve Champion Mozart and Dutch star stallion
Marco Polo, sire of world
famous jumpers like Irco Polo and grandsire of legendary Milton.
Michelangelo himself shows dominance and extravagance in every aspect.
Trained and placed into the highest class
this halfbreed is a first class improver stallion. In the trakehner breeding
lineage he is on the top. Sporting behaviour as well as nobility paired with dominante
hereditary traits including type, optimal build as well as the best of gaits make his
descendants the most promising.
Michelangelo is leaving his mark upon the Trakehner breed through the strength and quality of his
offspring. Numerous sons, including Kennedy and Hirtenruf, distinguish
this stallion, and contributed to his title of best Trakehner transmitter of 2000 and 2001. Along
with Kennedy, he also got the premium son Guy Laroche from his
first crop, and the premium horse Mon Dieu. His son Michellino,
from the Netherlands, is leaving a lasting mark in Denmark.
In 1998 a daughter of Michelangelo set an auction record in Holland. He is also the sire of the
dam of the Bundessiegerstute Lantana. Michelangelo's pedigree is rich with dressage talent. His
sire Pasteur xx has sired many fine Trakehner dressage horses
and is the sire of leading sire Mahagoni. His dam,
Miami, is a state premium mare. Michelangelo radiates extravagance
and superiority, and is trained to the highest levels.
This aristocratic stallion's dominant genes for sport secure the transmission of type and optimal
basic paces to all his descendants.

Michelangelo, sire of many approved
stallions in Germany and in the Netherlands, where he was one of the most popular stallions
also in the Dutch Warmblood breed. Michelangelo�s sire is legendary Thoroughbred
Pasteur xx. (�Selected Stallions of Germany�: �He founded his
own stallion line, which at this time in the Trakehner breed is important as no other one.�)
Pasteur xx is best known as sire of Mahagoni, one of the
leading dressage horse producers in the world, among his offspring Olympic dressage
medalist, ATA stallion Peron.
Michelangelo, although 50% TB, is not a light stallion. He is rater substantial and VERY
correct, a trait he consistently reproduced. He was first used in the Durch warmblood breed,
where he stood for the first part of his life, and he left a number of approved sons
(e.g. Michellino) and highly rated daughters there. Michel is the leading mare producer in the
German Trakehner breed for the 3rd year in a row. This is a ranking of stallions according to
the inspection scores of his daughters. This puts him in front of such sires as Hohenstein or
Caprimond. His highest standings are for type, trot and overll impression. I know him very well
in person and he is a very kind, calm horse with a wonderful work ethic despite the fact that
he was not always handled and ridden appropriately (to say it the nice way).
Article published on Miami dam of Michelangelo (Trakehner News in 2002)
Another heartbraking moment was the presentation of the elite mare Miami at age 23. Dam of the
approved stallion Miami Vice (by Iglesias), Michelangelo (by Pasteur xx) and Monteverdi
(by Partout), this beautiful Matador-daughter had contributed to the breed like not many other
mares. She stood still while Monteverdi was ridden around by the excellent Fie Skasoe of the
Wiesenhof stud, showing greatest potential for the big dressage world. It was also planned to
bring in Michelangelo, but unfortunately (and much to the dispair of his owner, Burgi Erdsiek),
Michelangelo was injured. Instead, one of his many outstanding daughters was presented. A
wonderful "family picture" and also the moment of celebration for the breeder and owner of
Miami, Hans-Peter Heinen. His farm is responsible for outstanding approved stallions such as
Kennedy, Michelanglo, Monteverdi, Kronjuwel or Guy Laroche.

Michelangelo stamt af van de volbloedhengst Pasteur xx, die
ook de vader is van topvererver Mahagoni. Met zijn
dressuurindex van 130 staat hij hoog genoteerd. Moeder "Miami"
is premie- en staatspremiemerrie en werd onder andere kampioen in Rheinland. Als we
verder terug gaan in de moederlijn van Michelangelo komen we de merrie Miramar tegen.
Miramar is de volle zus van Mirakel, die de in de KWPN-fokkerij zeer succesvolle
Marco Polo bracht.
Van 1991 tot en met 1994 stond Michelangelo in Nederland ter dekking. Veel van zijn
KWPN-dochters gooiden hoge ogen op merriekeuringen. Behalve in Nederland is Michelangelo
goedgekeurd en zeer geliefd bij de stamboeken van Oldenburg, Hannover en Brandenburg. In
1998 werd de eerste jaargang na zijn terugkeer in Duitsland, voorgesteld op de
hengstenkeuring in Neum�nster. E�n van zijn zonen werd uitgeroepen tot reservekampioen en
de hengst die kampioen werd is net als Michelangelo een zoon van Miami. Inmiddels heeft
Michelangelo de goedgekeurde zonen Kennedy, Hirtenruf, Guy Laroche, Kensington, Michellino,
Summetime en meer.
Onder zijn vaste amazone Katrin Lederer loopt de zwarte hengst
inmiddels met succes in de Zware Tour dressuur in Duitsland.
