Touchstone Foundation Sire (1973-1988) Abrupt

Touchstone has built four generations of warmblood mares through selective line breeding with Hanoverian, Oldenburg and Dutch stallions. Concentrating on the “A” line the program has used this bloodline every second generation.

Touchstone’s foundation sire was Abrupt a direct son of the line founding stallion Abglanz (view pedigree), perhaps the most influential stallion of modern times in the Hanoverian breed.

Abrupt spent his entire breeding career in Canada, from 1967 to 1988, producing excellent performance horses. His successes include six open jumpers, one CET three-day event horse and several competitive dressage and hunter horses. Touchstone’s mare herd is based on this legacy.
