Donner Bube’s famous sire.


As stated by Bernd Eylers in Selected Sires of Germany 2000: “there is next to no stallion in existence that has had such a profound and sustained influence on contemporary dressage competition sport and breeding alike asDonnerhall.” Again from the sires book: “Donnerhall is probably the most influential stallion of his generation.”


” Donnerhall is the most successful dressage horse of the world .”
Bernd Eylers

1994 – WEG – Team gold, Individual bronze

Breeding Record:

As of 2004, WBFSH declares Donnerhall is #1 dressage sire in the world.

“It is nigh to impossible to provide a complete survey of Donnerhall“s breeding here, as it would necessitate the writing of a separate book”

Bernd Eylers
