Hennessey *E* by Signeur, Harfe VI by Flaneur
Standing at 16.3+ hands, Hennessey was a very majestic presence. He exemplified the elegance of the Trakehner Breed. His head was chiseled and refined with a clean jawline, then following a crisp/clean throat latch, lay a long arching neck in perfect proportion to a superbly athletic frame. Straight clean legs with substantial bone completed the masterpiece of this horse.
Moreover, Hennessey's flowing gaits are the epitome of the long sought after product in the dressage/sport horse breeding world. He exuded style with athleticism!
His son, Zarr stands at Stoneledge Stables in Front Royal, VA and was the International leading sire of 2005 & 2006. Zealous, was the winner of the 2004 International Hunter Futurity 4 year olds and is beginning his breeding career as well.
