In Memoriam: E.H. Beg xx
At age 28, the first and so far only Elite Thouroughbred stallion in the Trakehner breed, Beg xx, passed away after a colic attack. Born in Estonia, the bay stallion had an international career iin show jumping and also evented at advanced levels before he was sold to Germany. His entire career in Germany, he was at home at Gestüt Hörstein in Bavaria. Beg xx produced a number of premium mares for the stud book and is the sire of 5 approved sons, of which Sky Dancer and Prokofiev competed at FEI levels (show jumping and dressage, respectively). Beg xx sired a number of successful competition horses for all disciplines, and was one of the most valuable, proven and best-liked TB stallions in the younger Trakehner breed. Our condolences to Gestüt Hörstein and the Diehm family.
