Breeding and Keeping

The outstanding natural habitat surrounding our Gestüt provides the perfect environment for breeding and raising horses of the highest quality. Our mare lines come from Hanoverian, Oldenburg and Westphalian families that are successful in sport as well as breeding.

 

Broodmares from old performance lines such as FIGARO, FRÜHLINGSBALL, GRANNUS and PILOT provide an ideal base for breeding horses with sport ambitions. Plus there's the experience and trained eye of horse professionals, appropriate raising conditions in groups and daily exercise.

The quality of our breeding endeavors is documented by more than 15 licensed stallions and many State Premium mares. In 1998, three mares that were bred here at the Gestüt were awarded a State Premium in Rastede.

That same year, Elite Mare ELIZA by FIGARO presented two State Premium daughters at the German Broodmare Show in Warendorf, taking 2nd place nation-wide in the competition for families
