Gut Füchtel is successful worldwide: Horses and offsprings from our place are asked for in many countries. Last year riding horses, stallion, broodmares and foals went to England, France, Switzerland, Austria, Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, Denmark and Sweden. But also too the US, to Australia, to the Ukraine and Poland and to India and South Africa we have sold horses. We love to hear all the good rumour and better news ...
Our biggest goal in 2008 was "Statesman" by Stedinger out of "Weissendra". He was licensed in April under saddle, then qualified at Rastede to the federal championships at Warendorf (Bundeschampionate) where he finished 3rd!! Finally he was sold by Uwe Heckmann at Vechta for price record of 400.000 Euro to Lux Dressage Mr. Waehnert! He has finished his 30 day test successful and qualified for the Bundeschampionate three times already. His first crop of foals were just "super" and so he received the "main premium" of the Oldenburg association in 2010.
Another exceptional stallion is our "Floriscount" by Florencio and "Arkona" by Donnerhall. He too was licensed in April and won the dressage index at his 70 day performance test with unbelieveable 148 points. He is licensed for Hannover too and was one of GErmanies top breeding stallions over the last two years. He qualified for the Bundeschampionate at Warendorf 2010 and is now in further training with Markus Gribbe. He is available since 2009 at the Böckmann stud and the Celle State stud for fresh and frozen semen.
Licensed stallion "Detroit" by Dimaggio and Rhapsodie had his first breeding season at Sosath stud and finished his 70 day test too. in the meantime he had several auction foals and was qualified for the Federal Championship at Warendorf too.! The approved Oldenburg stallion »Rhaposario« by Rosario out of »Winessa« by De Niro, winner of the Austrian licensing 2008, has very excellent offspring already and was most used stallion of the country! In the meanwhile he won all his first dressage tests and is on his way to higher levels!
The now ten year old mare »Rhapsodie Queen« by De Niro and »Rhapsodie«, third at the Brillant ring Rastede and three times qualified to German »Bundeschampionate« at Warendorf was successful trained by Isabell Werth. She qualified for the final of the Nurnberg Burg Pokal 2008 with Australian rider H. Beresfort where she was fifth with 70% and best german mare! We met Isabell this year and she is thrilled by her potenial for GP! We hope she stays healthy....
Many other happy reports of our horses enjoy our life! The highest priced foal at the Vechta foal auction 2007 "Florimax", fullbrother of Floriscount, developes well in England and will be shown for licensing this year! From the same dam »Arkona« comes the premium stallion 2004 at Münster/Westfalen »Sandakan« who is now very popular at Swedish National stud Flyinge (www.Flyinge.com).
»Escapado« by Ex Libris – Ikarus grew up here. Long term successful with Carl Hester for England (5th at the European championship and 9th at the Athen Olympics) he is now still activeand successful for the Netherlands with Hans Peter Minderhout. More successful horses are »Weissera« by Donnerschwee who was successful with Hiltrud Moormann up to GP and then changed into breedin programm. She died 2006 but left three fillies, two already received SP award, one »Weissenfee« by Sandro Hit, was in the brillant ring!
Falaise by Freiherr produced »PM’s Sarrastro« very successful stallion who was bred here at Gut Füchtel. He was prepared for a career in dressage by Herbert Näher in Württemberg. Now owned by the Magg family, he has been licensed on the basis of his achievements in sport and is on the road to Grand Prix. A great number of our horses have also been successfully exported to the United States, for example the De Niro daughter of »Falaise« by Freiherr, Fatima, owned by Beth Dzaugis or the Santander son, Swede, ridden by Blair Dugan for the stables of the Olympic rider, Hilda Gurney, in California.
