A horse that attracts attention as soon as he enters the arena: that is Vainqueur. The big framed dark chestnut, long-legged and with a strong conformation, practically dances through the ring. His successes attest to his extraordinary quality: in 2017 he completed the 14-day test in Neustadt/Dosse with very good grades, in 2018 he qualified for the Bundeschampionat for five-year-old German dressage horses, in 2020 he celebrated his first victories in the German S-class with over 76% under Hubertus Schmidt.

"He always wants to give everything", says everyone around him – his rider, grooms and everyone who experiences this likeable and beautiful stallion. Always elastic in movement and perfectly balanced, always willing to work, motivated and intelligent, sensitive, but with strong nerves, with the necessary go - this is how the charismatic dark chestnut shows himself in daily work. His offspring are beautiful, correct, with first-class movement and particularly good hind leg action.His oldest sons and daughters are modern riding horses, which are characterized by their willingness to work and quality.

Vainqueur continues the stallion line of his sire Vivaldi, who was internationally successful in dressage under Hans-Peter Minderhoud (NED) and sire of more than 35 licensed sons. Vainqueur combines Vivaldi with the Hanoverian line 831/Sommerzeit (by Sportanzeiger II), which has already produced eight licensed stallions.



The sire Vivaldi was reserve champion of his stallion performance test, won the Pavo Cup in Holland at the age of five and in 2009 also the final of the KWPN tournament series for stallions. He was internationally successful in dressage under Hans-Peter Minderhoud (NED) and has so far produced more than 35 licensed sons for Germany alone.

The dam Raissa already produced four sport horses that were successful up to advanced level. The Oldenburg black horse Rubioso N, the dam's sire, was highly placed in the finals of the dressage horse Bundeschampionat in 1997 and 1998. Under the Dutch Olympic rider Ellen Bontje, he later achieved over 50 victories and placements up to the Grand Prix class of dressage before it passed into the possession of the Michalke family. He reached his sporting highlights under the saddle of Viktoria Michalke, Oberbayerische Meister, Bayerische Meister, German Meister and the absolute highlight was the European Team Champion of the Young Riders 2007. Numerous offspring (including the licensed Rassolini) are highly successful in sport up to the S level.

The grandmother is descended from the large-framed dark chestnut absinthe, which had a brilliant breeding debut in Bavaria and the DLG champion mare Nizza and the licensed sons Abtino and Aufmarsch. Several stallion mothers grew up for his later breeding mission in Oldenburg.

The pedigree is excellently secured even in the descending line through the high achiever world champion, the insight, who has trained up to Grand Prix, and the top sire Lugano I.

Vainqueur represents the Hanoverian line 831 / Sommerzeit (by Sportanzeiger II-Nautilus-Notatus-Angeli-Schlucker-Mein Alter xx-Athlet-Norfolk-Robuste), which produced eight licensed stallions, among others. Aston (DEN), For Final (PB Westf.), Ribiano (PB Rhld.) And Windhuk (Ldb. Celle, stallion performance test winner), as well as the internationally successful dressage horses Dona Castania / Falk Rosenbauer and Sacramento 29 / Petra Wilm. This mare family can be fully traced back to 1831.
