As the new champion stallion of the Verband der Züchter des Oldenburger Pferdes (OL), a son of Grand Galaxy Win T x Don Schufro x Rawage Quintus x Donauwind/Trak., bred by HH Horses from Denmark and exhibited by HH Horses & Helgstrand Dressage from Denmark, positively shone. The sire, Grand Galaxy Win T, was a finalist at the 2016 dressage WBCYH with Severo Jurado Lopez from Spain.
Oldenburg’s Breeding Director, Dr. Wolfgang Schulze-Schleppinghoff had this to say about the champion stallion: “This son of Grand Galaxy Win T is a very successful mix of the best dressage bloodlines in Europe. The black stallion has developed excellently since the pre-selection. His movement, especially shown during lunging, couldn’t be much better. In the trot he has shown impressive dynamics and enormous power from the hind leg. His movement trough the body is nearly perfect, so we could only honour this with a 10.0. A correctly made stallion, nice in the type characteristic, from which we will hopefully see many offspring.”
A son of Don Diarado x Conthargos x Lordanos x Landadel, bred by Marion Diese from Fresenburg, and exhibited by Zuchthof René Tebbel, Emsbüren, was awarded with the champion stallion title of Springpferdezucht-verband Oldenburg-International (OS). This stallion comes from the famous Heida dam line. Sire Don Diarado won the team bronze medal at the 2018 World Equestrian Games in Tryon, USA, with Maurice Tebbel, son of the exhibitor. Oldenburg’s breeding director complimented this young jumping talent by saying: “This young stallion appeared to be the most complete stallion of the jumping lot this year. The dark-brown stallion impresses with his outstanding modern type and has great gaits. In the free jumping, he was able to convince with superior assets, his attitude and quick legs. A complete stallion from head to toe.’..
