Hancock's exterior is flawlessly designed. He has a very good three-division body with an optimal topline and harmonious build exhibiting the traits found in the Edelpferdes Trakehner type. Hancock captivates you with his modern type and his heirs acquire the potential for greatness of their relatives and ancestors. It was noted during his approval at the 2015 American Hanoverian Society inspection that Hancock will be important in lightening the breed and imparting his elegance to the foals of the older Hanoverian type.
Hancock imparts his charm, beauty, and quality on to his foals. His 2014 offspring took several top honors including the winning foal of the Danish Trakehner Association's Foal Championships in Broholm and the champion foal at the annual meeting of the British Trakehner Breeder's Association. Hancock's first foal crop in Europe debuted under saddle in 2016 with two of his offspring placing in the Federal Tournament in Hanover, Germany, two fillies earning State Premium Status, and a daughter earning Reserve Champion at her Mare Performance Test. The current results of Hancock's daughters at their Mare Performance Test foretell and exciting future.
Hancock's sire Imperio and his rider Hubertus Schmidt represented Germany on the 2016 Rio Olympics Gold Medal dressage team. Imperio is now a school master for a 17 year old young rider.
