Rubinstein for Foundation Friday

Enjoy one of Warmblood Stallions of North America’s more popular Foundation Friday posts!  Every other Friday we will be featuring a foundation sire - one who has been influential in the development of warmblood breeds. We pull from the incredible archive of The Horse Magazinepublished by Chris Hector of Australia. Thank you, Chris, for permission to draw on your expertise!

Rubinstein was born into a dressage Royal Family. His dam was Antine, one of the three daughters of the mating of the Thoroughbred stallion Angelo and Dodona (the two male foals from this pairing were the Olympic dressage stars Amon and Ahlerich). Rubinstein’s sire, Romadour II, is one of the most significant of modern Westfalen sires.

Rubinstein was ridden in his early tests by Detlev Nesemann, and the pair were Reserve Champions in the Six-Year-Old dressage class at the 1992 Bundeschampionate. The ride then went to that gifted rider/trainer Martina Hannöver, and together they won ten of his eleven starts at S-level. 

Rubinstein last appeared in the Hanoverian Stallion Book in 2005, where he is recorded as having 1502 progeny in competition for winnings of €1,457,560. He had 133 S level dressage competitors – and just 3 advanced jumpers.
