European Import Explodes Onto the American Breeding Scene
With an impressive resume and a remarkable pedigree, the latest addition to our stallion barn possesses credentials and qualities we just couldn’t pass up. Sound and fit at 18-years-old, Rex stands proud and distinguished after an illustrious international career.
Rex Grannus is nominated with the International Jumper Futurity (IJF) and the Performance Horse Registry (PHR). He is licensed with the Westfalen, ISR Oldenburg and Zangersheide.
Rex passed away in 2013.
Previously owned and ridden by German Olympic Gold medalist, Reiner Klimke, the talented stallion successfully competed in the international ring as a Grand Prix level jumper, advanced level dressage horse and a Puissance jumper (6’10+”). In 1994, he completed the 100 day stallion test in Munster-Handorf, Germany. At Rex’s approvals in Westfalen and Zangersheide he was selected among the five best stallions for his “endless capability” and extraordinary elastic movement. Rex’s ability is a reflection of his fine lineage. His pedigree represents the finest names in sporthorse breeding and continues to be one of the most sought after lines in all of Europe.
Grandsire: Ramiro Z

Rex’s other grandsire, the striking Hanoverian Grannus, competed successfully under Guido Klatte at the highest level of Grand Prix jumping.
