Triumph of the Best
Breeding director of the Oldenburger Verband Bernhard Thoben about the champion stallion: „This stallion shows a lot of expression, one of the highlights throughout the licensing process certainly being the work on the lunge. Presenting himself with incredible suppleness and elasticity it was a pleasure to watch him. Built with a strong foundation this strong stallion simply brings everything with him that is needed to succeed.”

Breeding director of the Oldenburger Verband Bernhard Thoben about the talented jumper: „An incredibly smart horse, always focused on his handler and always wants to do everything right. Throughout the free jumping he presented himself very lightfooted with a high level of regularity and with a lot of scope. If you look at the pedigree, you are presented with highly relevant successful stallions.”
