The Oldenburg stallion embodies an almost sublime dressage horse and a highly interesting sire when it comes to genetics, characteristics and quality of movements.
He is one of our breeding stallions at Gestüt Schafhof.
KWPN Black Stallion *2006
Bretton Woods, named Woody by the team, came to Schafhof in August 2011. Together with Paul Schockemöhle we were able to purchase this really impressive young stallion in the Netherlands and take him to Germany.
Oldenburg liver chestnut gelding, *2009
Sir Picardi, influenced by Donnerhall, is a beautiful dark chestnut. He is half part owned by Paul Schockemöhle and us. In the 30 Days Test he finished with high scores of 8.5 and 9.0 for rideability.
Totilas was born in the Netherlands and he grew up there until he was ten. The black stallion was educated by Edward Gal. After the WEG 2010 Paul Schockemöhle bought Totilas and saved him for the german breed and the german sport. Shortly afterwarfs he asked me if I could imagine, to ride Totilas. The first units with him were very positive and harmonic. It was obvious from the first minute that it was a perfect match. Of course I am very happy, to ride the worlds best dressage horse from now on. Otherwise I know: it is a big challenge to fill Edwards footsteps.
November, 30th 2010 Totilas and me were presented to the media as Germany´s next white hope. Today I cannot affirm: 2012 we will win the gold medal. Till then it is a long way to go! Together we will work hard to inspire and electrify fans all over the world on our own way. With this partnership starts a new dimension for me and I really look forward to develop this fantastic partnership.
