The black stallion Matcho AA derives from the French Anglo-Arab breed and was winner of the 1992 stallion performance test in Adelheidsdorf. He covered at Celle from 1983 to 1995 and managed to found his own stallion line from there. His descendants enjoy a high standing among riders because of their extraordinary easy rideability and good character and are successful in all disciplines.
The mare Prinzessin E produced 9 foals in 12 years and was highly premiumed at DLG Shows. She is a daughter of Pik Konig who made a name for himself in Oberndorf as a sire of dressage and show jumping horses of the very first order. He has been able to pass on his pre-potency and positive traits to his progeny including his sons Pik Bube 1 and 11. Ellinor was winner of several national mare shows. Metternich is clearly stamped by his Thoroughbred forefathers and bred out of renowned DLG dam line. He has powerful and compact conformation, very much like Pik Konig/Pik As xx as regards type, presence and ability. He has a reliable temperament, and is a horse with a big outline, excellent shoulder and hind quarters. He is endowed with outstanding walk, and very good basic paces. He is highly commended for both his jumping talent and technique. Here is a quality horse capable of producing both dressage and show jumping talent.
Metternich is a good improver through his progeny in riding horse type, in conformation, and in dressage ability. He is a particularly versatile horse and so are his typy offspring. In 1998 his son Montesquieu and in 1999 his son Multistar both became Reserve Champion at the stallion licensing in Verden. After a very successful stallion performance test in 1999 Montesquieu became State stallion at Celle. His daughter Mon Lisa was Reserve Champion mare at the Ratje-Niebuhr Show in 2000. He has 12 licensed sons, 36 state premium mares, 207 main stud book mares, and 53 auction horses. Winning sum of progeny is Euro 160,808.
