”To really own the things inherited from your fathers, you must adopt them as your own.” Isabel Jahr seems to have fulfilled this undertaking most impressively after having taken over the Constanzehof from her father. She has found her footing and has distinguished herself in the last years by breeding excellent Holsteiner horses on the basis of line 4063, a mare family bred and maintained at the Constanzehof for decades.

Ungarin III by Fernando has a reputation as one of most successful broodmares in the Holsteiner breeding programme even though she was not primarily bred to the most high-profile sires but rather to stallions best suited to improve the dam line. So she was also bred to Lord Calando (by Lord), a half brother to the top sire Corrado from line 162 or to C-Tenton, a Carthago son from line 18A2, runner up in the 2011 and 2012 Derby under Thorben Köhlbrandt. Aiming for an outcross trial, the decision was made to breed to Stakkato – top jumper sire, winner of the Bundeschampionat, later successful international show jumper under his constant rider Eva Bitter and no.1 ranked Hanoverian jumper sire.

Somersby’s dam Wapiti I (born 2006) has been successfully shown over the jumps and was highly placed to M** level. His 2nd dam, Hollyday II, has own show jumping achievements to S level. During her subsequent career as a broodmare she already produced the licensed stallion Lenett, a much noticed jumper.

Even though the big-framed Somersby still has a rather youthful appearance, he moves very well at all basic paces. The stallion’s jumping is by no means fully developed yet but he has already demonstrated his great talent. Somersby’s particular strengths are his ability, technique, carefulness and reaction.  In terms of bloodline, he provides a highly interesting and necessary alternative, given that he  absolutely conforms to the Holsteiner demands regarding type, movement and jumping without  an excess of Cor de la Bryère and Capitol blood elements. So, in terms of bloodline, a particularly interesting outcross option carrying the successful Stakkato blood.

Somersby clearly demonstrated his exceptional quality as a jump horse at his Schlieckau stallion performance test, scoring 8.92 for his jumping ability. His jumping breeding value estimated at 136 index points placed him at the top of his age group.
