Tantoni Sir Soccrates



Born in the UK at Tantoni Warmbloods, Tantoni Sir Soccrates was awarded premium at his foal inspection by the Oldenburg Society.

Also known as "Soccs"


As two year old he was awarded UK Champion Stallion. He then went on to train in Germany where he was hugely successful in his Young Horse Classes. This was just the start of a stela competition record making him one of the top Small Tour Horses, both nationally and internationally as an 8 year old, never scoring below 70%. Claiming numerous championship titles he has now reached the pinnacle of his career, Grand Prix.


With a truly outstanding temperament, fantastic consistency and 3 top gaits he is a very special horse. In May 2019 he was sold to Ida Luise Niederdorf, an up an coming German Young Rider who is short listed for the German Young Riders Team. 


Tantoni Warmbloods continue to retain a financial interest in him and are proud that he continues to compete under the Tantoni stud name still as Tantoni Sir Soccrates. 2019 saw Tantoni Sir Soccrates  competing successfully in Germany with Ann-Christin Weinkamp.

He is brother through his dam to our young stallion Tantoni Quickstep.
