Vollrath Stud was presented with great success at the HOY 2013 with young horses by Vollrath Lessing and Worldwide P.B.
Where there is sun there is also shadow as our personal great hope of winning the Level 2 title with our LIAISON was dashed. She injured herself during the first night in the makeshift yards and could consequently not be competed due to her injury.
However we are proud producers of quality young dressage horses:
Here is the way to their success:
MFS Level 2 (29 entries)
Test 2.3 (29 entries)
Test 2.5 (28 entries)
Rochelle Speirs supplied us with accompanying photos and sent this letter:
We also want to acknowledge the good placing of Weltweit under Leia McEvoy:
Test 3.2 (20 entries)
Finally we like to point out the Latimer's full brother LE ROUGE, rising 2 yr old, is for sale and also as stated previously we would like to get LIAISON into the hands of a competent dressage rider! - go and check the out under "for sale".

Level 1 DRESSAGE CENTRAL DISTRICTS TROPHY
1st: Rosanne Rix Lindisfarne Laureate (Lessing ex Wicked by Worldwide PB/Genius/Aureatte II xx)
Level 5 DALVEY TROPHY
NZ HANOVERIAN SOCIETY BEST PERFORMED HANOVERIAN
Level 1-3: Ingrid Anderson All Amour Level 1
Level 1-3 ... this should be Lindisfarne Laureate as the filly clearly beat All Amour by 5.7 - 13%, however 'HSNZ' politics ... a V-branded horse is definitely a Hanoverian!
This proves quite clearly that the H-brand does not necessarily make the better horse.

Southern Hawkes Bay 3.12.2011 - Results of Vollrath horses:
Amazing as there is hardly a deeper bred Hanoverian than LATIMER competing. But that's "politics"!
We at Vollrath are very pleased that the 'V" brand beats the "H" where it counts.
LEVEL 1 CHAMPION Rochelle Speirs - Vollrath Latimer

What a couple of days it has been at the
Dressage Wellington Championships
29-30 October 2011
Vollrath Hanoverian bloodlines were successfully represented at this show, in particular through the progeny of our stallion Lessing. Four were bred out of Vollrath Stud mares by the stallions Genius, Dynamit, Worldwide pb.
Jutta and Liaison's haul from the show - three first placings, one third, and the cup and rug for champion.
It was their first outing together.
Of course due to their ages it was only the entry level of competition with the exception of two Worldwide pb offspring (Worldman and Waldfee).
The tournament had a large number of entries.
Level 1:2 = 31 entries
Level 1:4 = 19 entries
Level 1:5 = 31 entries
Level 1:6 = 23 entries
Level 2:1 = 24 entries
Level 2:2 = 24 entries
Level 2:6 Challenge = 17 entries
Level 2 - Freestyle = 10 entries
Level 3:1 = 22 entries
Level 3:6 = 18 entries
Level 3 Freestyle = 10 entries
We at Vollrath could not have had a better start for the season 2011/12.

Lessing and his offspring Le Vivre had a very good outing at the Central Districts Dressage Tournament in Feilding on 22/23-01-2011.
Lessing was awarded this Sash from the NZHS as the highest scoring 'pink papered Hanoverian' of the Tournament.
And CONGRATULATIONS Paula Brown!
At only four years old, Vollrath Le Vivre (Lessing/Genevieve by Genius), with owner/rider Paula Brown, was named the Level 1 Dressage Champion and winner of the CD Trophy.
This young gelding had three first placings and one second, with scores from 70% to 73.846% in his four tests, to easily win the championship.
That's exactly we at Vollrath are waiting for ... Lessing's offspring showing what he can produce ... Lessing is certainly is fulfilling our expectations.

After Lessing's amazing win of the Young Dressage Horse title in 2008 he did not compete in 2009 but concentrated on serving mares and his schooling for the 2010 season.
From out of nowhere Lessing under his trainer / rider Jutta Rosenblatt entered the competition arena at Level 4 in 2010:
All test were in the high 60 - early 70% and there was never much between the Champion and the Reserve.
Jutta was extremely pleased with Lessing's 'consistency' and in particular the way he took the "HoY atmosphere" in his stride, hence we are very confident at Vollrath the next season will give us the next step 'up' on the ladder!
Jutta has just started Lessing's first 3yr old - and Lauretta is showing all that she promised as a weanling.
Her movement is powerful yet elegant with tons of suspension and forward movement superbly enhanced with a calm temperament and willingness to work.
So Berny seems to be correct with his assessment that Lessing would be the ideal stallion to cover Vollrath mares!

On his very first outing (9-10 Feb 08 Tielcey Park) Winnetou scored the "Reserve Championship" after four "Novice tests" in which had the following scores:
He received repeatedly "8" for 'working trot' and 8 & 7 for his 'paces'.
His worst score was a '6' being a little 'unbalanced coming down the centre line for the final salute'.
Needless to say that Jutta was very pleased with their 'team performance' and in particular as Winnetou showed his perfect temperament and willingness to work!
The weather at Tielcey Park was actually disgustingly hot and humid. Compliments to all the riders coping so well!

Alex Hope competed in the NZ Lion Foundation Young Rider Dressage Championships in Ashburton 20th and 21st January 2007. 75 riders aged from 10 to 21 from around New Zealand competed for 3 Pony National Titles and 6 Hack National Titles.
Alex had a great weekend winning 2 Hack National Titles; Preliminary Champion on her 6 year old mare Ruby (Wandering Star by Worldwide p.b. /Genius/Rocky Mountain xx) and Open Medium Champion on her 14 year old gelding Extra (Orana Australis).
Alex was also selected with Ali Jones from Wellington to compete against two South Island riders in a North Island v South Island Derby. Alex and Ali won the Derby.
Alex has been riding since she was 4 and competing in Dressage since she was 10. She is a member of the Tauranga Pony Club Development Squad and the North Island Young Rider Development Squad. Last year in the New Zealand Pony Club Dressage Championships in Taupo, Alex (13) won the North Island Junior Championship for 15 year olds and under and was second nationally to a South Island rider who was 15.
Next up for Alex is the 2007 NZ Pony Club Dressage Champs in February followed in March by the N Z Open Dressage Championships and the HoY where she will be competing against adults.

Equestrian Success for Wanganui - again! With great pride Vollrath Stud announces winning the National Dressage Championship - Novice at Taupo's National Equestrian Centre.
This is Jutta's second National Title, having won the same title in 2000 on Vollrath resident stallion Worldwide P.B. (imp. Germany); in 2002 the pair won the Medium HoY title. Jutta competed the Stallion successfully at Prix St George Level in 2005. Worldwide will not be competed in the future - he will have to concentrate fully on his Stud duties.
Berny and Jutta are looking forward to bringing on their new three-year-old black Hanoverian Stallion Lessing (imp Germany) and one of Worldwide's progeny, four-year-old black gelding Winnetou, who shows by all accounts a huge talent for the dressage arena.
Vollrath Stud bloodlines feature well in the "Wild Card" selection for the Novice World Dressage Championship at Taupo on 4-6 November 2005!
We congratulate the riders on their selection and wish everybody great success and sporting satisfaction!
Vollrath Dornkaat had qualified in two preceding tournaments in Taihape/Tielcey Park and in Taupo itself with an average score of 73.5% to enter the Horsepower Young Dressage Horse 5 year olds at the National Dressage Champs in Taupo.
He was in a class of 15 competitors of which he was awarded a third place in the finals on 14-03-2004.
At the HOY tournament Jutta competed Dornkaat in "Novice Musical Freestyle", which was a bit daunting for his first event (62.5%). The next day he was more settled (67.5%) - 3rd place in the warm-up class.
In the "Title Class" Novice 2.6 he scored a 2nd place despite course error (66.91%). This put him into 7th place overall.
Dynamit offspring scooped success at the 2002 Canterbury Dressage Championships!
Open Medium Highland Laddie Cup:
The New Year has got us and how nicely did it start for Pat Endt from Manurewa in Auckland.
She took her 11-week-old filly by Worldwide PB out of Ryvale Scherherezade (by the Anglo Arab Cyden Sun ex Erewhon Majic by Paracourt xx) to the the North Island All Breeds at Claudelands Hamilton, on January 5, and was awarded the Supreme Champion Warmblood title.
Pat is soooo pleased with her success, that she invites interested people to contact her - 09.266 7617 - Young Sassy is on the market.

Doppelganger finds a new home
VOLLRATH DOPPELGANGER ridden by Jutta Rosenblatt has achieved a wonderful feat. Reserve Champion at the Nationals in Novice Dressage After the outings at the Taranaki Dressage Champs in Hawera, the Central District Champs at Tielcey Park, Palmerston/North and the Wellington Area Dressage Champs in Levin. Jutta travelled with Doppelganger to Taupo to the National Dressage Champs where he score the very much-wanted Rosette for Second Place.
The young Dynamit offspring did score well in the qualifying rounds:
And the Finals on Sunday as far as Dynamit progeny go:
It is very pleasing for Vollrath to have so many placings at the National Dressage Champs.
January 10, 2001
Vollrath had a good weekend at the Dressage Tournament at the Taranaki Dressage Championships in Hawera last weekend (6-7 Jan).
This was Doppelganger's first time out in dressage competition. As we had no idea how he would perform, Jutta entered (although flying changes & haunches in are established) him in preliminary for a win and three second placings.
December 1, 2000Some very good news from the FEI World Dressage Challenge, at McLean's Island, Christchurch, this weekend.
Several horses bred at Vollrath have been very nicely placed at the event so far:
Novice FEI Challenge: 1st -- Laurel Cross (NZL) 69% on DAMASK by Dynamit ex Ludenstar
On 20/11/1987 - a chestnut colt (Distelfink - Paratata xx by Aureatte II xx) was born at Vollrath. We called him Drago, in honour of Berny's good friend Dargo Mestrovic, who had suddenly died in Germany.
Drago was duly broken in and sold to a rider (to remain unnamed) who could not get along with him. Eric Ropiha got involved and Drago ended up with Catroina Williams (nee McLeod) who rode him in his first year to gain the title of "Young Eventer of the Year", however under the name of Distance.
He was sold on to Australia and after another name change to "GV Braveheart" - he achieved under Olivia Bunn an individual 8th place in Eventing (and the best performed Australian Horse) at the World Equestrian Games 1998 in Rome.
