The 10-year-old Westphalian stallion Rock Forever was bred for success. In 2005 Rock Forever was awarded the Reserve Champion at the NRW licensing. His show-stopping career started in 2006 by winning the Bronze Medal at the Bundeschampionate as a 3yr old. In 2007 as a 4yr old he was named Champion at the Kampmann-Festival in Bremen scoring a remarkable 8.9. During the Westphalian week in Munster-Handorf Rock Forever again became Champion earing a score of 8.9. He topped off his 4yr old year by winning the Silver Medal at the Bundeschampionate. Rock Forever’s 5 year old year was no less exciting. Under Oliver Oelrich, Rock Forever won the Westphalian State Championship. He then went on to place 6th at the World Championships for Young Dressage Horses. Rock Forever ended 2008 with a spectacular finish winning the title of Vice-Bundeschampionate in Warendorf. Competing at and placing in the medals at the Bundeschampionate, three consecutive years in a row is a feat that is not accomplished by many. Rock Forever continues his success in the Dressage arena in S advanced classes with great success.
Rock Forever is known for his exceptional three expressive gaits. His conformation lends well to his marvelously free shoulders. Rock Forever has a powerful, uphill canter that is distinctly his and it is continuously passed on to his offspring, known as the “ Rock Forever Canter”.
At the young age of 10 this incredible stallion already has offspring that are carrying on his legacy. He has over 10 licensed sons and several state premium mares. In 2013 Rockencio (Rock Forever x Florencion I) was named the Champion of the Westphalian Stallion Licensing. Rock Forever’s offspring represented him at the 2013 World Young Horse Championships and the 2013 Bundeschampionate. Rock Forever himself had a great year in 2013 when he had the second highest German Breeding Index, a great achievement for such a young stallion. In 2013, his daughter Rosamunda won Steffen Peters’ heart and confidence to become his new partner in pursuit of international sport.

Rock Forever’s pedigree is full of diversity with powerful jumping blood and a strong dressage background. The combination of Rockewell and Lady Sunshine has produced three magnificent licensed stallions, Rock Forever, Revolverheld NRW and Rock Forever II. Revolverheld was the Vice Bundeschampionat and Vice World Young Horse Champion at the age of 5 in 2012. Rock Forever’s sire Rockwell is a many time champion in both dressage and show jumping. Rockwell was a finalist in the show jumping Bundeschampionat in 1998 and 1999. In 1998 he completed a great challenge in becoming the only stallion qualified for the Bundeschampionate in both show jumping and dressage. In 1999 he was nominated “Sport Stallion of the Year” at the stallion competition in Riesenbeck. With such recognized blood as Ramiro and Grandus on the sire side, the bloodline is sure to give a powerful hind end with superb rideability. Ramiro, with over thirty years of breeding, has most certainly earned himself the title “Stallion of the Century”. Ramiro was one of the first Holsteiner stallions to compete in the international show ring. Ramiro successfully competed in both show jumping and the dressage arena. His sons and daughters pass on his valuable genes providing excellent rideability, movement and jumping talent. It is then no surprise that we find numerous Ramiro offspring in showjumping and dressage competitions around the world. Grandus adds the exceptional G line to this diverse pedigree. The G-line is known for producing international performance horses in both dressage and jumping.
The dam line continues to add tremendous power and elegance to this modern type stallion. Rock Forever’s dam sire Lanstreicher is a remarkable Holsteiner stallion that descends from impeccable jumping bloodlines. Lanstreicher was an international Grand Prix jumper that was ridden to 35 wins including, Leipzig, Hannover Moorselen and second in Hannover in “ the Sires of the World” competition. As a 5 and 6 yr old Lanstreicher placed at the Bundeschampionate under rider Toni Hassmann. Lanstreicher has 3 licensed sons and 10 daughters who have been awarded the title “State Premium Mare”. On both sides of Lanstreicher’s lines you find thoroughbred blood, Ladykiller xx and Sacramento Song xx, which brings refinement and modernization to this bloodline. Rock Forever’s great granddam Prinzess was herself a successful show jumper. With these athletic bloodlines, Rock Forever offers mare owners huge athletic potential with wonderful rideability and proven dressage capability.
