The State Stud Marbach recently announced the acquisition of two new dressage sires – purchased during the Hanoverian stallion market in Verden – three Thoroughbred stallions as ‘refiners’, and three youngsters approved during their latest stallion licensing.
Two new stallions for the breeders of dressage horses were recently bought by the Marbach State Stud during the Hanoverian stallion market in Verden.
Tall, with strong movements was how Momentum (Morricone - Filly Fee x Furstenball) was described. Bred by Dirk Vierke in Wallstawe and owned by A.J. Tylor Parkins in the Netherlands, the young dark-bay stallion is well developed, with a height of 173 cms, and extremely good basic gaits and balance. His sire, Morricone (Millenium - Hartima x Rubin-Royal) was a licensing winner for Oldenburg in 2014, and the best dressage stallion of his performance test, as well as successful already in S-level classes.

His sire, Vitalis (Vivaldi - Tolivia x Krack C) is a guarantee for his movements, and also represents a valuable Holstein stallion line.

Also licensed was the offspring of Quo Vadis (Quotenkönig - Londandi x Londonderry) bred by Anton Herre. Completing the licensed trio, Geniel (Goldberg - Devita x Don Frederico), who is in Swiss possession.
