Rubinstein who was born in 1986, died in 2000 was born into a dressage Royal Family. His dam is Antine, one of the three daughters of the mating of the Thoroughbred stallion, Angelo and Dodona (the two male foals from this pairing were Olympic dressage stars, Amon and Ahlerich). Rubinstein is by Rosenkavalier - Rosenkavalier is by Romadour II, who is the sire of World and Olympic champion, Rembrandt, out of Antine’s full-sister, Adone. From another full-sister, Annette came Romancier (also by Rosenkavalier) who stands at the Blue Hors Stud in Denmark. However it should be noted that Rubinstein’s two full-brothers have disappeared without trace. Rubinstein was acquired at an early age by Mrs Gudula Vorwerk-Happ of the famous Vorwerk stud in Oldenburg. Rubinstein was third in his performance test at Adelheidsdorf remarkably finishing in a higher position (4th) in the jumping rankings than he did in the dressage (5th). Rubinstein was ridden in his early tests by that gifted rider/trainer Martina Hannöver, winning ten of his eleven starts at S-level. In 1995, Rubinstein scored eleven first and second placings at Grand Prix and Grand Prix Special level, and he was seriously being talked about as a candidate for the mighty German team to go to Atlanta. Then Martina lost the ride and Rubinstein went to Heike Kemmer, and the magic was lost. Nicole Uphoff rode the horse for a season, but even she could not get Rubinstein motoring again - his weaknesses, the lack of power and scope, particularly in the trot, were glaringly apparent. Still, by this stage, Rubinstein’s most exciting son Rohdiamant, a foal from his first crop (out of Elektia V who is by the Anglo Arab stallion, Inschallah) was doing the performing for him. In 1993, Martina rode Rohdiamant into equal first place (with Wolkenstein II) in the 3 year old Championship at the Bundeschampionate. Rohdiamant (pic right) is now an exciting Grand Prix horse, ridden by the German based, US born, Lisa Wilcox, and just missed out on the American dressage team to go to the Sydney Olympic Games. He too is proving an exciting sire, with his son, Roman Nature winning the 3 year old Stallion title at the 1998 Bundeschampionate, and the 5 year old stallion class at the big stallion show at Zwolle. Rohdiamant’s full-brother, Royal Diamond (born in 1994) won the 5 year old championship at last year’s Bundeschampionate. In his second crop, Rubinstein sired Regazzoni (left) out of a Werther mare. Regazzoni was the champion of his stallion test at Münster-Handorf with a score of 140.53. Regazzoni is already the sire of a number of licensed stallions - and working at an FEI level himself, looks (even to Nicole Uphoff) just like a stallion version of Rembrandt. Regazzoni semen was used for the first time in Australia in the 2000 season and the results have been quite good. Rubinstein has had at least two foals and a reported four pregnancies, but has not had a good striking rate/ Rohdiamant has had very bad results, while Royal Diamond, his full brother, has been most successful. Rubinstein is also the sire of Rotspon, born in 1995 out of a mare with classic Hannoverian bloodlines - Argentan, Pik Bube, Wendekreis. Rotspon topped his performance test in 1998 but sadly did not get a chance to compete at the Bundeschampionate, seemingly because Dr Bade did not wish to promote the son of a Westfalien stallion, standing at an Oldenburg stud. Like Weltmeyer, Rotspon produces wonderful semen, and frozen babies are springing up all over Australia. In Australia, Rubinstein is represented by the exciting young stallion, Riverdance, purchased in 2000 from the Vorwerk Stud by Holger Schmorl for his Kinnordy Stud. Riverdance is out of a mare by Atatürk, who is also the dam sire for Kristy Oatley-Nist’s Wallstreet. The stallion, Grand Kavalier is by Grundstein, out of Resista who is by Rosenkavalier out of Antine - one of those three sisters again.

Rubenstein is shown in 1990 as OPTIMUM conformation class champion in 1990. Rubenstein who passed away in June 2000 was branded Westphalian but approved Oldenburg, Hanoverian, Trakhener, Hessen and Baverian. This great horse contributed much to the equine world. Of his first foal crop four received Elite status. Rubenstein's dam's sire, Angelo xx, was sire of Dr. R. Klimke's well known Grand Prix Olympic gelding Aherich who won three Olympic Gold Medals. Rubenstein's Sire Rosenkavalier (1980) won his stallion performance test in Warendorf.
He was also related to (by his Dam Antine) to Rembrandt the 1980 Olympic Gold Medal Winner for Dressage.
Ooooh Rubinstein, daar ben ik zo lang fan van geweest!!
Sommige Rubinsteins hebben iets te korte benen, maar de meeste zijn zoooooo gaaf!! Wilde mijn paard eigenlijk door Rubinstein laten dekken maar het dekgeld was 3500 gulden en dat kon ik niet betalen. Toen is het een goedkope hengst geworden.
Wat is Rubinstein toch een plaatje.... Naar zo één kan ik echt dagenlang kijken... Ongelovelijk, zo'n hengst. Ik had vorig jaar plannen om Jurga te laten dekken door Rubinstein's zoon Respect NH.... Maar ja, met Paddox ben ik veel blijer!!!
So tell me where you are / Tell me how you feel / Tell me what you need / Just tell me how you feel / And let it all just rain on me. ~ Kane
