The secret has been revealed: The Celle State Stud stallion Stolzenberg is Hannoveraner Stallion of the Year. In the show program of the stallion licensing, the dark bay stallion made a great appearance. In the Niedersachsenalle he had already enjoyed the applause and recognition of the public as the best jumping stallion of his licensing and as the winner of the grand prize.
Sadly, his breeder, Gerd Odlozinski, passed away last year and was unable to enjoy Stolzenberg’s achievement, as success certainly followed success in the career of the Celle State Stud stallion.
In 2001, the son of Stakkato x Sandro from the dam line of Nachbarin I was born at Gerd Odlozinski’s in Luttmersen. At his licensing he was celebrated as the best jumper stallion in Verden and sold to the Celle State Stud as reserve champion. He also led the field at his stallion performance test in Adelheidsdorf and achieved an impressive jumping index of 141.88 points. As one of the most sought after sons of Stakkato, the dark bay was used for breeding in Celle and became one of the most successful jumping talents of his age-group with Hauptsattelmeister Joachim Winter. The pair celebrated a total of over 80 victories from level A to S in their eight-year career together. Eight years ago, Stolzenberg was already in the limelight of the Niedersachsenhalle, where he was awarded the Grande Prize. His sire Stakkato had been Hanoverian stallion of the year in 2007.
Stolzenberg passes on his jumping ability to his offspring – a total of 469 who are causing a sensation on the show grounds of the world. On the international stage, the former Verden auction horses Hello Shelby with rider Scott Brash, and Salt'n Peppa with Hall McAteer, or Gain Line with Abdullah Alsharbatly, and BSC Skipper with Holger Wulschner have catapulted their sire to the top 50 of the best jumper sires worldwide in last year's WBFSH ranking. His highly talented daughters, 33 of whom were awarded the state premium, ensure an outstanding breeding value in jumping of 149 index points. Eleven of his sons are registered in Stallion Book I of the Hannoveraner Verband. The breeders agree: ability, stamina and willingness to perform are the qualities that the stallion of the year 2019, Stolzenberg, passes on to his offspring...To read the complete article you need to be a subscriberCLICK HERE TO SUBSCRIBE TO BREEDING NEWS
