Craig Trakehner stallion



A TRAKEHNER of incredible breeding... Versatile, correct, trainable and scopey, all with an unbeatable temperament.

Craig is effortlessly elegant with near perfect conformation, he has a fabulous length of leg resulting in outstanding reach in front. a true asset for the dressage arena!


Competed in all three disciplines he shows incredible versatility. He loves to jump, is hugely bold over a fence with great stamina and a massive ground covering gallop another asset for the xc phase eventing and to boot he has an incredibly pretty head -Which he passes on to ALL his babies!

But over every trait, best by far is his saintly temperament!

'A fantastic refining stamp with exceptional bloodlines...A huge asset to British Breeders'
Comments from his grading panel.

He has been crossed to some amazingly hot and quirky mares and the offspring have all been unbelievably laid back, bold and willing, all with huge potential. He adds quality and elegance to any mare, he goes particularly well with the more traditional heavier mare to refine and TBs for more movement. Not forgetting height and rideability to ponies, proving to produce small horses, safe and straightforward enough for a junior rider without compromising on ability!

Craig or Mouse as he is known at home is Superbly trainable and eager to please. he offers true rideability, (in his performance test he achieved 3rd highest rideability score in its 30 year history!) He has been competed ONLY by amateurs and even a young BRYDS rider, but over all this it’s his nature with people that melts the heart, he is ridden at home by my 9 year old twins and they have handled him since they were small.

Craig's sire is the Elite Trakenher stallion Buddenbrock, sire of 13 approved Trakehner sons, two of which have also received Elite status, namely the late, great Connery who was Craigs full brother and King Arthur. Both were also named Trakehner stallion of the year 2012 and 2014 respectively, as was Connerys’ son Imperio in 2016 along with being reserve for the German Olympic Dressage Team! 

Craig descends from the the legendary 'C' Line of Corrida, his mother Caro Dame out of Cornau a half sister to show jumper Consul, who made his name as a great sire for the dam line along with performance hordes of all disciplines with many graded sons, naming a few, Cornus, Checkpoint, Chardonnay and Olympic show jumper Almox Prints, European Eventing Champion Fleetwater Opposition and many more... This line really is royal blood of the breed, consistently, time after time producing the Trakehners best stamped horses. Not just from their own athletic ability but their incredible versatility producing horses for all disciplines. There are several FEI dressage horses, most notable is the international GP winner Hinnerk TSF and many incredible horses upto 3*** eventing and +1.40m show jumping. Buddenbrock's renowned strength is producing amazing athletes that compete at the highest level in all THREE major disciplines.
