Dynamit is the foundation sire of Vollrath Hanoverians. He was voted the Horse and Pony Sport Horse Super Sire in 1997 and 1998.
A black 16.3hh horse (by Dynamo-Elfi (Eger II)), Dynamit was born in 1981 and died in November, 1998.
Dynamit underwent his performance testing in 1984 in Adelheidsdorf. He was placed 18th of 70 with a total index of 114.04 points. He was imported to New Zealand in 1992.
His progeny show tremendous jumping and dressage potential. At the NZ Dressage Championships 2000 the following six Dynamit offspring achieved placings in their grades: Damask, Dauntless, Dyson, Devastation, Doonebaggo and of course Dominik T. Dominik T is pictured at left, ridden by Stephanie Tovey. The combination was re-selected in the ID Squad, and Stephanie was named Dressage Young Rider of the Year at the Awards Dinner by popular vote.
Dynamit, a B-Grade Showjumper in his own right, was retired to stud at age six. The photo below shows him jumping in September 1991 in Germany just a few months before arriving in NZ.
