Mare, Westphalian, *2016
Breeder: Gestüt Vorwerk
Venezia GV is on the road to success. Under Rebecca Holtwiesche, she won her four-year-old debut in tests for young riding horses. At the age of five, the black mare qualified for the Bundeschampionat with her rider Joline Durand.
Sire is our very elegant Villeneuve. He was the highly acclaimed 1st Reserve Champion of the Westphalian licensing in 2014 in Münster-Handorf and in 2016 he passed the sport test for stallions in Münster-Handorf. Together with Laura Strobel from Team Dorothee Schneider he showed himself to be sovereign, received an 8.4 for overall impression, an 8.2 for trot and rideability and finished the test successfully with an overall score of 8.1.
For the dam Fontainebleau Venezia was the second foal. She descends from the Oldenburg Reserve Champion Fackeltanz OLD, also stationed in Cappeln. After series successes in St. Georges dressage competitions and a place in the Burg-Pokal Final of the best young horses in Germany, he was able to place in the Grand Prix Tour for young horses in 2015 straight away.
The granddam, St.Pr.St. Royal Olympia, registered in the stud book under the name Renaissance M, was named Oldenburg Reserve Champion Mare in 2001 and placed in tests for young riding horses. She produced Santorin MT OLD (by Sandro Hit), who as a three-year old under Helen Langehanenberg took third place at the Oldenburg State Championships and fifth place at the Bundeschampionat. As a four-year old, she again took bronze in Rastede and seventh place in Warendorf.
Her sire Rohdiamant was Champion Stallion, Main Premium Winner, Bundeschampion and under Lisa M. Wilcox/USA he won international Grand Prix competitions. The dam Farce, herself a bronze medalist at the Bundeschampionat for young riding horses, produced the licensed full brothers Robbie Williams and Royal Olymp (by Rohdiamant), the latter of whom was the top auction horse in Vechta and won ribbons up to Inter I under Ronald Lüders. The granddam, Franca, went to elementary (L) level show jumping herself.
The great-grandmother Penny produced five sport horses.
