Last October, Rocky Lee indeed "rocked" the Hannoverian auction place in
Verden, when his 2 year old son "Revolution" sold for a record price of
1.2 Million Euros and became the most expensive horse ever sold in
Verden! As a result, Rocky Lee is one of the most sought after stallions.
At the same time, Rocky Lee celebrated yet another breeding highlight:
he entered the rank of the Top Ten German breeding stallions with a
dressage breeding index of 151 points at his first breeding index
valuation ever! This score is even more remarkable seeing Rocky Lee didn't
breed a large number of mares in his first breeding years. Yet, his
eldest 3 and 4 year old crop under saddle proved to be convincing in
Mare Performance Tests and young horse dressage classes in 2015,
providing necessary grounds for the sire's remarkable top ten breeding
One year before, the 2014 Westfalian Elite Mare Show marked Rocky Lee's
first major breeding highlight. His daughter, Rihanna, became Champion
of the Westfalian Elite Mare Show. Rihanna ranked Premium amongst a fine
selection of the 100 best 3 year old mares in Westfalia. A couple of
weeks later she also proved her quality under saddle when she won her
first 3-year-old dressage horse class.
Rocky Lee is an exceptional stallion in every respect, breeding and
sport. The charming black mount is of outspoken rideability and work
ethic, super sensitive and yet eager to work. He went from winning
Youngster Classes to Prix St.Georges in less than two years.
His truly multitalented pedigree stands out amongst today's dressage
breeding sires for two reasons:
Rocky Lee runs a high percentage of refining thoroughbred blood (50 %
according to Horse Telex), while his bloodlines mainly consist of proven
dual-purpose jumper genetics.
Thus, beside his own career as a dressage stallion, Rocky Lee is the
most suitable prospect for all three disciplines of sport horse
breeding: dressage, jumping and eventing.
Because of his high percentage of thoroughbred blood, Rocky Lee also
serves as a refining stallion.
His 50% thoroughbred blood side is mainly due to his
damline. Rocky Lee's mother, Juicy, is a half thoroughbred mare by Justinian xx,
who descends from a damline of a lot of refining blood added
by the thoroughbred stallion Usurpator xx.
As such, Rocky Lee provides for a well consolidated thoroughbred
portion over many generations, the most favorable way to add refining
to warmblood breeding:
High consolidation reduces the risk of spreading extremes.
Rocky Lee was a Premium Stallion at the 2009 Westfalian Licensing. He was a
multiple winner of young dressage horse classes at age 3, 4 and 5 and a
finalist at the Bundeschampionships in Warendorf..
When Rocky Lee moved to Johann Hinnemann at age six he became Westfalian
Champion immediately, winning at M-level under the saddle of Steffi
Wolf. At age seven, he won his first S-class and scored high at Prix
St.Georges. Trained by Johann Hinnemann, Rocky Lee and Steffi are on
their way to Grand Prix.
Rocky Lee's sire, Rock Forever NRW, has already reached the status of a stamp
stallion. He provides licensed sons year after year, amongst them are
licensing winners and premium stallions in both Westfalia and Oldenburg.
However, his most prominent daughter lives in the USA!
Steffen Peter's Rosamunde, by Rock Forever x Fidermark, turned the
dressage world upside down when she made her Grand-Prix debut in
San Juan Capistrano, California, scoring nearly 80 % at age eight!
Rock Forever's sire, Rockwell, is an evenly multitalented stallion of
unique self-performance. He shows wins in jumping and dressage, both at
S-Level. Rock Forever's damline descends from the purest jumper genetics.
His damsire, Landstreicher, was an international show jumper under Toni
Rocky Lee’s sire and grandsires explain the dual purpose genetics that make up
Rocky Lee. In 2010, Rocky Lee proved his jumping talent at his Stallion
Performance Test when he gained an overall jumping score of 8.11
competing against specialized jumper stallions.
Rocky Lee's dam, Juicy, holds a respectful breeding record with another four
siblings successfully registered in sport. They prove the damline's
multi-talent by wins and placings in both jumping and dressage. Next to
Rocky Lee, her son Cardento is the second sibling already competing
sucessfully in S-class, jumping, that is. A truly multitalented damline.
Via Renaldo and Remus, the blood of famous foundation stallion Ramzes is
contained twice in Rocky Lee's damline.
In combination with his sire Rock Forever, Rocky Lee is inbred to Ramzes
yet another time. We consider this a welcome inbreed component of proven
Rocky Lee - an expectional stallion in every respect, breeding and sport!
