Total McLaren will not return to the sport

juni 17. 2024

Unfortunately, the top breeding stallion Total McLaren will not return to the sport due to an injury.

The noble black stallion by Totilas / De Niro came to Helgstrand in collaboration with Future Dressage in 2020, after attracting significant attention at his Dutch licensing in 's-Hertogenbosch. That same year, he was licensed in Danish Warmblood and passed his 35-day test, where his fantastic gaits and great rideability were particularly highlighted.


Under saddle, Total McLaren developed quickly, and with Jana Schrödter in the saddle, he earned a bronze medal at the Bundeschampionate for 4-year-old dressage horses – a feat repeated in 2022 for 5-year-old dressage horses, this time with Leonie Richter in the saddle.

We are, of course, very sad that Total McLaren will not have the opportunity to further develop his sporting career. Fortunately, he passes on his great qualities to his offspring, and we are therefore pleased that he can still be used in breeding,” says Andreas Helgstrand.

Total McLaren has already made a significant impact in breeding. His son, Trocadéro Noir, from his first foal crop, was the reserve champion stallion in Münster-Handorf and achieved the highest price at the stallion auction with a hammer price of 700,000 euros. In 2023, his son Magic McKee L was licensed in both KWPN and Danish Warmblood.
The quality of Total McLaren's first foal crop was so high that he was named Main Premium at the Oldenburg licensing in 2021.

Total McLaren is stabled at Deckstation Schockemöhle and is available to all breeders who wish to use him. He is approved in nine breeding associations and, in addition to his many physical qualities, possesses a fantastic temperament and good character.
