An athletic sport horse through and through. Long legs, noble looks, always elastic – an ambitious jumper stallion with a great attitude. He qualified for the Bundeschampionat as a five and six year old and took second place at the State Championships in Rastede in 2005. In 2006 as well, the Danish Nations Cup rider, Sören Pedersen, won ribbons in advanced level tests at many national as well as international competitions with this meanwhile seven year old Hanoverian and will be showing him in more international competitions in 2007.

His foals turn out well and several of them qualified for the German Foal Championships, which earned Abke the Ib main premium at the 2003 approval in Oldenburg. Two years later at the same location, his first son (out of the same dam line as the Dutch jumper-maker, Zuidhorn) was licensed. In 2006 another son was licensed in Redefin, awarded a premium and stationed at the State Stud. Abke passes on only dark colours; there are no chestnuts.

His sire, Acorado, won his performance test and participated at the Bundeschampionat before he unfortunately died at a very early age. But his off-spring still influence what goes on in Warendorf. In 2005 he presented the Vice Champion in the class for five year olds and the bronze medal winner in the class for six year olds. Through Acorado, Contender and Raphael, Abke is inbred over the legendary stallions Cor de la Bryère and Ramiro and his dam line produced the State Stud sire, Rivero II, who is highly popular, not just in Bavaria.
