His first foal crop was impressive, producing Premium foals, as well as the Site Champion at one of the largest inspections in South Germany. He completed his 70 Day Test at Marbach, Germany in the Fall of 2014 with exceptional comments, and 9’s in all the Jumping and Temperment scores. He was 2nd overall in Jumping, out of over 20 stallions. He has an incredibly kind disposition, and brings scope and bloodlines previously unavailable fresh to North America.
He will prove to be an interesting new option for hunter breeders, as he also has the movement that will win the flat classes, coupled with the athleticism to produce Derby and big ring hunters.
Honor’s offspring are successfully competing as hunters, jumpers and dressage horses.

Ratina Z continued to represent Germany under Beerbaum by winning numerous international competitions, including the Grand Prix of Aachen, in which they guaranteed a gold medal for Germany. At the same competition, Beerbaum was gunning for an individual gold as well, but Ratina Z suffered an unfortunate injury and was off the circuit for months.
Always the fighter, Ratina Z came back impressively to earn a double title at the 1997 European Show Jumping Championships in Mannheim, Germany. Beerbaum continued to campaign the mare successfully until 2000, at which point she was retired in an emotional ceremony.
Ratina Z will live out her days as a broodmare at Beerbaum’s home at Riesenbeck Rush. Today, this effervescent mare is regarded as a legend. Almost every article that mentions her calls her “a dream,” “a legend,” or “a horse of the century.” She certainly has earned her spot in the record books, and perhaps what is more impressive than her long list of wins is the way she accomplishes them.
Dinard L has also established himself as a successful sire through the dam line. Late Night/ Edwona Alexander/AUS, who has competed successfully in Stuttgart, Hamburg and Aachen is one example. Twelve of Dinard’s sons are licensed stallions, among them “Bundeschampionat” (championship for young horses of all German breeds) winning stallion and performance test winner Dinaro, who also won jumping competitions up to class S. 23 of his daughters were awarded the title of State Premium mare.
Dinard L won bronze in the competitions for five- and six-year-old jumpers at the “Bundeschampionat” in 1993 and 1994. He achieved a high placement at the 1992 “Bundeschampionat” for riding horses. Dinard L comes from one of the strongest performing dam lines in Westphalian breeding. Dinard L’s dam, Verband Premium State mare Paddy, produced also Lagavulin (by Lord Caletto), a licensed stallion and successful international competition jumper, and his full brother, Lord Pilot (S*-class jumper). With Der Clou, she produced Dimanche, who won dressage competitions up to St. Georges level. Paddy is a full sister to the stallions Pit I and II and to Norbert Koof’s top jumper Prinzregent.
Pilot’s breeding influence exceeds Westphalian borders. He is represented in almost all German breeds. In 2005, he was honored with a life-size monument in front of the Westphalian horse center in Münster-Handorf. Pilot has had numerous international Grand Prix winners, in the 1988 Seoul Olympics Pedro with rider Wolfgang Brinkmann was on the gold medal winning German, Pirol / Lesley Mc Naught, P.S. Priamos / Ludger Beerbaum and Dirk Hafemeister, Prinzregent 7 / Norbert Koof and many more.
Pilot continues to have a very strong influence in today sport horse breeding his offspring proven themselves to be amazing jumpers, outstanding dressage horses and talented hunters.
