Herzensdieb was the 2005 Trakehner Verband licensing champion stallion with the statement being said that “this stallion is not just moving but dancing.” Breeding Manager, Lars Gehermann, added: “Endowed with the aura of something special, this stallion embodies the classical Trakehner upgrader type.” As a 3-year-old, he qualified to compete at the the 2006 Bundeschampionat. He was the Reserve Champion of his 70-Day Testing with 133.56 dressage; 111.90 jumping, and an overall score of 127.78. He won the cross country with 9.5 and received a 9.0 for trot, 9.5 for canter, and 8.5 for walk. Herzensdieb again qualified for the Budeschampionat as a 6-year-old and has been trained in dressage through the Advanced Level. He is approved with Hanoverian, Swedish, Danish Verbands and American Rhineland Society. In 2013, the Trakehner Verband awarded him Elite Hengst status based on the performance of his offspring as well as his own.
