Blue Hors Santiano is a picture-perfect stallion out of a mix of the very best bloodlines. He was purchased as a foal at the stud of the Blue Hors Breeder of the Year 2020; Straight Horse by Eva Götzche and Mogens Pedersen in Denmark. The stud also owns his dam, the mare Romanik, who is out of an amazing dam-line with several highly praised mares and stallions.

In the fall of 2020, Santiano achieved a third place with 87,5 points in total and the impressive marks of 8 for walk, 8,5 for trot, 9,5 for canter, 8,5 for suppleness, 9 for self-carriage, ridability and interior as well as 9 for capacity at his 21-days performance test in KWPN.

The official KWPN Research Report 2020 says:
“Blue Hors Santiano is a balancedreliable and sympathetic stallion with a good attitude. The stallion is very willing to work and works very well. The walk is pureactive and has more than sufficient scope. The trot has a lot of cadence, has good scopegood balance and a lot of switching power. The hindleg should have slightly more bend. The canter is uphill with good scope, a lot of impulsion and shows a lot of ability to close. Blue Hors Santiano moves with very good posture, a lot of balance and a lot to a lot of flexibility. Blue Hors Santiano has a lot of talent for dressage and gives his rider a very good feeling”

In 2022, Santiano has participated in the Dutch Stallion Competitions, where he has achieved the top marks of 8 for walk9 for trot9.5 for canter9 for rideability and 8.5 for wholeness, besides also standing stud at Hengstenstation van Uytert, where he has covered almost 400 mares.

Santiano’s sire is the triple World Champion for Young Horses, the Blue Hors Zack son Sezuan. Sezuan is a highly respected producer of both talented and popular breeding stallions, championship winners, high-premium mares, as well as sought-after riding horses, all of which show talent for the most difficult exercises of dressage and an impressive gait – all in both domestic and foreign markets. Sezuan is also the only stallion already sire to several offspring who have won World Championships for Young Horses medals – and who are already on their way to top-level sport. The grand-sire is none other than Blue Hors Zack, who has long been in the Top 10 on the FEI’s world rankings and has competed in several of the biggest international dressage championships, including the 2020 Olympics, and who is also the sire of Sezuan’s half-sister, Straight Horse Ascenzione, who is a successful World Championships for Young Horses finalist and now victorious in international small tour.

Santiano is linebred on the stallion who revolutionized Danish dressage breeding, Blue Hors Don Schufro. Don Schufro helped the Danish national team win a bronze medal at the 2008 Olympics in Hong Kong. Especially Don Schufro’s daughters have had enormous significance in modern breeding.

With mares by both Blue Hors Romanov (dam’s sire) and Don Schufro (sire of the dam’s dam), both of whom were active in international Grand Prix dressage at the highest level, alongside successful careers as breeding stallions, the dam-line behind Santiano is particularly exciting and has an impressive production of successful sports and breeding horses, which perform well across breeding associations. Zack has often competed in international Grand Prix against his own son Glock’s Zonik, who is Santiano’s half-brother, as they’ve both got the mare Romanik to dam. Romanik is also the mother of the Grand Prix mare Zackonik, as well as the grandmother of the gold medal mare Straight Horse De Milla, who was selected for the World Championships for Young Horses in 2020. She is also the dam behind the breeding-approved Straight Horse Sir Romance, as well as Santiano’s full brother Straight Horse Sezarion, who is well on his way to an international career with his Spanish rider Alejandro Asencio Mendez.

Breeding director Martin Klavsen is pleased to have a Sezuan son like Santiano, where type, movement quality in all three gaits, and pedigree on the dam’s side come together in a higher unity. Santiano’s genetic heritage exudes performance on both the paternal and maternal sides. Both sides include both high-premium mares and stallions, as well as sports horses with international performances in international Grand Prix dressage.

He is the Sezuan son we have been waiting for, because he is not only top athletic and well-balanced in his movements, but also a very uncomplicated horse who is a pleasure to work with.”
Martin Klavsen, breeding manager


Due to his high concentration of performance bloodlines, Santiano is expected to pass on athletic qualities to his offspring in the form of movement capacity, rideability, and willingness to work. Particularly noteworthy is his well-balanced and naturally uphill canter, which is expected to be inherited by his offspring. He is suitable in terms of both type and pedigree for a wide range of mares.

“Santiano has developed, and he presents himself as a true sportsmodel with lots of great stallion character. We expect him to pass on his great looks, his spacious movements, and his great mechanics”
Martin Klavsen, breeding manager

At the same time as being extremely successful in the sport, Santiano has also been an extremely popular breeding stallion. So popular, in fact, that he was the most used stallion in the Netherlands in 2022 with nearly 400 mares! And with a super first crop of foals with several champion foals and auction highlights, we have got a lot to be excited for in the future
