Once again this year, upholding a long tradition, a VTV jumper stallion and a VTV dressage stallion were crowned during the Oldenburg Licensing. This highly prestigious award is given to a licensed, Oldenburg stallion for his outstanding achievements in sport and breeding. On the occasion of the Stallion Gala, the two athletes Casino Berlin and Fürst Wilhelm were decorated with the VTV sash in the Oldenburg Horse Center Vechta.
