History and Tradition
Our family has been closely related with Hanoverian horses for generations. Heinrich Clüver sen. with his sense for interesting thoroughbreds and their active use for breeding paved the way for the successes in the younger history. Today we are breeding with six own mares on Clüverhof. Apart from that, approx. 10 foals out of brood mares are born each year.

Don Carlos sired 20 licensed sons, among them the still active Celle state stud stallion Drosselklang II as well as Don Juan, Dorian, Domfalk, Dakar, Dynamo and many others more.
He presents 327 registered brood mares, 43 of them awarded state premium mare, and 476 competition horses, earning an amount of Euro 714,665 in sport in total.
