Anamour is a multi-talented horse whose breeding embodies leading Hanoverian bloodlines. He was selected for New Zealand for his superior movement and outstanding disposition. Anamour's dressage score at the eleven-month performance testing at Adelheidsdorf, Germany, rated fifth of the forty stallions selected for licensing.
The Hanoverian stallion Anamour arrived in New Zealand from Germany in 1995 as a three-year-old colt; his first crop of foals was born in the spring of 1997. He has been successfully bred to many New Zealand thoroughbred mares and to our existing Hanoverian mares.
His progeny have proved his excellent breeding and are excelling in top competition.
According to Herr Manfred Lopp, Head Saddlemaster at the stallion performance centre at Adelheidsdorf for over thirty years; "a typical Anamour is dark in colour and good in type. All Anamours are good trotters, they are elegant with good necks and correct bone on the legs. Their movement shows good freedom out of the shoulder and good action of the legs. They are generally uphill going, so that they can become really good riding horses."
