Once again a son of Escudo 1 wins his performance test. Earl, a big impressive black stallion, convinced in all criteria of the test, especially the rideability and his willingness to work, which needs to be greatly emphasized. (See information on Escudo 1 and Lanthan, Earl’s damsire under their sections.)
Earl absolved his stallion performance test in Adelheidsdorf in 2002 as the winner, receiving excellent scores in all parts of the index. Earl gained 8’s for character, temperament and conformation and 9’s for willingness to perform, trot and walk and rideability. For canter he got an 8, also an 8 for natural jumping ability and free jumping. He gained second place in the dressage criteria and third in the jumping criteria which made him first overall out of 50 stallions in his year. Earl is truly a quality young stallion with potential to burn for both disciplines which is reflected in his outstanding pedigree. Meanwhile he has won multiple showjumper tests up to intermediate class. Earl was included in the Hanoverian Showjumper Breeding Programme, and due to his way above-average movements, he will also be shown in the dressage sport in future. Since 2003 Earl has been in service at the insemination station Stader Geest in Bargstedt, where he presented first foal crop in 2004 which received a lot of attention. Several of his progeny were admitted to the Verden foal auctions. He has 1 licensed son, 21 auction horses, and 15 state premium mares.
