EH Sixtus is by Habicht out of Stradelle by Ibikus.
The "Trakehner stallion of the year 2001" is a stunning black stallion of unparalleled beauty. He would have excelled at any discipline, but it was decided to turn him into a show jumper.

He is classified as an Elite stallion, approved for Trakehner and Oldenburg.
EH Sixtus is

Highest quality of movement with excellent activity of the hindquarters, a rare gift at the jump and a performance-tested and fertile blood guide make this stallion to a highly interesting athlete and sire.
His father Habicht was not only successful in the Military, but also winner of the stalllion performance test in Westercelle 1970 and the Central Stallion Show Schwaiganger 1977.

Kawango was bred by Friedrich Isaak and is owned by Hanne Brenner. Together with Hanne, he is one of Germany's top para-equestrian athletes and won the German National Championships this year. He is also successful in regular dressage at L and M levels both with Hanne and Dorte Christensen in the saddle.
Karawango is a full brother to the late top sport horse sire Kasparow and comes from an exceptional sport horse family, which also includes the Grand Prix gelding Kevin, the Inter I winning mare Kira K, the S level dressage mare Karisma V and many others.
EH Sixtus is the sire of 13 licensed sons, 16 licensed grandchildren, 8 licensed great great grandchildren.
