Bon Coeur


Bon Coeur received premiums at his 2014 licensing, Vice-Bundeschampion of the three-year-old stallions in Warendorf, and became winner of his 30-day test in Schlieckau!  "Bon Coeur" - literally translated, means "good heart" ... and this good heart is equipped with extraordinary movement. He easily surpassed expectations, and it became clear at the Bundeschampionat in Warendorf how enormously powerful, and at the same time light-footed, this young stallion is. He possesses excellent tact and almost unlimited elasticity, earning him the vice-Bundeschampionship prize.

At his 30-day test in Schlieckau, he left behind the entire group of high-caliber, dressage horses behind with a final score of 9., and with a remarkable breeding value of 150 index points. Trainers, judges, and riders were enthusiastic and gave Bon Coeur the score of 10.0 several times.

This stallion has top rideability, combined with the fascinating movement mechanics in all, three basic gaits, that make him the epitome of the modern sport horse.  In 2017, Bon Coeur was awarded the Weltmeyer-Prize from the Hanoverian Verband for his impressive year in sport. Bon Coeur was the best represented sire at the 2018 Hanoverian Stallion Licensing in Verden with eight sons selected. 

At his first competition in the international arena, Bon Coeur and rider Caroline Darcourt (SE) placed 2nd in the 2020 CDI* PSG and also secured two, 1st places in the Inter I in the Adequan Dressage Festival in Wellington, FL.

The apple doesn't fall to far from the tree in the case of Bon Coeur's son, Bon Courage, who was also named Vice-Bundeschampion at the 2019 Bundeschampionship in Warendorf as a three-year-old.  The same year, his son Bellany was proclaimed winner of the Oldenburg Stallion Licensing in Vechta. 

His sire, Benetton Dream, qualified for the Bundeschampionat at five, six, seven years of age, and was successful as an eight year-old participating in the Nürnberger Burgpokals. In the meantime, he has won several Grand Prix victories and changed hands to Tinne Vilhelmson Silvfén in Sweden in 2013, where he currently belongs to an elite group of sires with a breeding value of 153 points. In this pedigree, Sandro Hit is the damsire, with his sporting performance (the Bundeschampion and the world champion of the six-year-old dressage horses) and his first-rate sire performance (numerous national championships, world champion championships and Grand Prix). In the third generation, we find old-established Hanoverian performance blood of Carismo (formerly the test winner) by Calypso II, who has numerous internationally victorious offspring. Especially in combination with Sandro Hit, Calypso II has consistently delivered highly successful dressage horses.

Bon Coeur is the result of this with remarkable strength in the back and the always active hind leg from the connection to these valuable jumping genes.
