Oldenburg Stallion at Stud in the UK: Serano Gold


Oldenburg Stallions at stud in the UK making Top Money  – Serano Gold has some impressively priced offspring at the elite auctions.

With the European Championships well underway in Aachen over the next few days it seems that Sandro Gold has not only friends but many relations representing their country at this important equestrian competition this year.

Graded with both the OALL Southern German Societies Oldenburg and the Sports Horse Breeders – GB

This lovely Oldenburg Stallion was Reserve Champion at his performance test as a 3 year old just two months after he was backed, and, two months later, was 5th in a well contested Warendorf Bundeschampionat in 2006 gaining extremely high marks for ridability.

His ridability is something this Oldenburg Stallion demonstrates so well in the arena, with a ground covering trot and a distinctive lift and lightness in his rhythmic animated paces.  He has a relaxed and powerful piaffe and a lovely canter. His grading marks awarding him 9.75 for temperament and he achieved marks between 9 and 10 for his basic paces.

His Sire Sandro Hit has offspring at the European Championships today; Santana (Han.) Sandro Hit x Rubinstein and is representing Sweden with Minna Telde in the Grand Prix today.

SERANO GOLD was vice champion of 3yo stallions in Rastede in 2004, where he also was placed in the final of the Bundeschampionat. He has always been impressive. and qualified for the Bundeschampionat in 2004 where was placed in the final and again in 2006 & 2007 where he sadly through no fault of his own was unable to attend the finals.

In 2006, the year that Edward Gal took the ride,  every one of Serano Golds’ foals received the Oldenberg Premium Title crowning him “The Foal Maker” He has sired several approved breeding stallions including the 2010 BWBS reserve champion SERANO and also SFORZANDO (Oldenburg Graded) A stunning black stallion was produced by Woodlander Stud for his owners Brian and Beverley Rumbold  won his first Shearwater qualifier in 2012 when he did not get less than 8 and has been campaigned by Gregory Simms since Februray this year in BD classes.

Woodlander Stud, Woodlander Rockstar

Woodlander Stud: BWS-UK Stallion Woodlander Rockstar


Woodlander Rock Star – Woodlander Stud’s homebred British Warmblood  and grade 1 Oldenburg Dressage Stallion

A good looking British Warm Blood Stallion with the all important look at me presence.

Woodlander rockstar is very powerful and now competing with the Eilbergs at Inter II

Woodlander Rock Star – Woodlander Stud British Warmblood

A good looking British Warm Blood Stallion with the all important look at me presence.  He is very powerful  stallion, and yet entirely contained, and now competing with the Eilbergs at Grand Prix. He has the wonderful, and covetable, ability to move from an expressive passage full of power and elevation into a relaxed walk across the arena and back to show some passage with so much lift and rhythm that you cannot help but be truly impressed;: Not his temperament which allows such a calm approach to a contained jet power driven performance. In the spring of 2013 Lynne Crowden had commented the she was looking forward to his move into the 70’s and he has transitioned seamlessly gaining over 70% at Lemieux National Championships in 2013 and has, since, taken respectable points at all his outings, building on his great success on the 2009 Success on the Sunshine Tour where he won all nine of his classes.  His 2012 seson saw his move into FEI Inter II competition and he took the reserve National Champion that year too. These results were predicted by his grading judges who foresaw an international career ahead of him.

There is no doubt that he is being favoured as a dressage stallion to date with 2 good looking offspring at the 2014 Futuity  as both as sire and dam sire and again in the 2013 Futurity awards with 4 progeny put forward for dressage grading (as sire of and dam sire). Woodlander Rockstar gained a certificate of merit at the Futurity Dressage yearling in 2012 and It was in 2011  that Woodalnder Rock Music came before the judges and he set the bar high for his siblings to follow.

An early foal by Woodlander Rockstar, Woodlander Rapido, campaigned so ably by Annette Ruth Davis-Green is now competing at FEI Inter 1 and PSG and has 368 points at the time of writing and has gained points at every outing over the last tow years.

Woodlander Studs Woodlander Rockstar is by Rotspon/Rubenstein 1 x Anatalia

Woodlander Rockstars’ Sire Sire Rotspon by Rubinsein 1 x state premium mare Antalia was known and admired for his great temperament too, making training such a pleasure  and productive. His good sloping shoulder and elegantly long neck, and of course his sleek jet black colouring are also features which Woodlander Rockstar and his progeny are carrying through. His Grand Sire Rubenstein 1 was prodigiously successful as a performance horse with 40 winds at Grand Prix and he was also a member of the gold winning team at the 1996 Olympics. With 89 State Premium mares and 66 approved stallions.

Dam St Premium Savannah/Sandro x Lollipop

Woodlander Roackstars’ State Premium dam, Savannah, (San Paolo mare) sadly passed on in 2012 but she was a prodigious mare. Her own temperament was “fiery” as Lynne Crowden said in the lovely obituary she wrote for this Woodlander foundation mare which she had bought with the help of hermother. However her offspring have demonstrated again and again just why they are so popular because they are so “ridable” her last two foals have been secured by Maria & Michael Eiberg; certainly a sign of the quality of her progeny. Two embryo transfer foals where born of her. One, Supertramp, has progeny already proving their quality successfully at the Futurity Awards. Savannah, at her own gradings, had impressive scoring in her jumping test and undoubtedly it is her abilities which also pass to Woodlander Rockstars’ Progeny who are coming on to the competitive scene in all disciplines.

I have saved his other successful progeny for another blog…there are just so many!

Vince Homozygous Black Stallion

Homozygous Black Warmblood Stallion Review: Vince


Vince is a modern dressage horse with an elegant self carriage, presence and grace. This gorgeous homozygous black warmblood stallion stands at 17hh.  He is an eye catching stallion who exudes presence in the competitive arena. His progeny carry forwards this elegance and, being homozygous black, he breeds bay/black progeny. From Country Farm Studs, Vince had many successes as a young horse including winning or being placed in all the BD Young Horse Series tests (Shearwater, Rhinegold & Nuumed) qualifying him for the National BD Young Horse Championships.

Vince’s warmblood sire Gribaldi KWPN Keur stallion was ridden by Edward Gal to countless victories in the international arena and was a leading dressage sire.  His sons include Panted Black, Anky Van Grunsvens ride, and another of Edward Gals rides Moorlands Totias (himself a world record holder). Gribladi had sired 10 licensed sons and became the #1 sire producing consistently high caliber offspring. Vince is an example of his Gribaldis’ quality stamp.

Vince has been consistently awarded impressive scores including 9 for his walk and high 8’s for his trot and canter. Judges described him as a very athletic, loose moving horse with three excellent gaits and strong presence.

His consistent good scores resulted in him being invited to the World Class Start & Potential selection day, to be assessed by a panel of experts including Emile Faurie and Carl Hester. Vince also has numerous wins at novice & elementary level with scores over 75%, and he has regularly qualified for the regional dressage championships. He has all the ingredients required to produce consistent results at advanced dressage competitions.

His progeny are still young but are certainly quality horses in their own right, and they have been given premium status by the Oldenburg Society.

He just comes out and works the same every day.”
