(VDL) ORESTUS - Indoctro x Ramiro Z

Olympic Games horse (VDL) Orestus is a world class stallion that has competed at the highest level, Olympic Games, CSI**** and Puissance! A stunning looking stallion with lots of quality and top class pedigree such as Indoctro x Ramiro Z x Erdball!

ORESTUS ~ another performance-bred prospect was sourced from the world-famous VDL Stud. Like his Highland View Lodge stable companions, Orestus has a superb pedigree and temperament combined with a brilliant jumping technique and performance career that saw him compete at the very top.


Orestus is the best horse I have ever ridden in my life. Since the first time I sat on his back, it was an unbelievable feeling as his style of jumping and scope are something special.
He is such a big character. No matter how big and wide the fences are, he fights for you and always gives 110% in the ring. For myself, I felt lucky to have the chance to ride a horse with his qualities which made me very confident jumping at my first Olympic Games.
And if I need to do it again, I will choose Orestus. No doubt about it.
- Juan Andres Rodriguez

Orestus is one of a handful of Irish-based stallions to have competed at the Olympic Games! His career, competing up to 1.60m level, saw Orestus in action around the world from the Pan-Am Games in Rio de Janeiro to the Beijing Olympics.
Orestus had the versatility to place in a variety of classes from Puissance to 1.50m classes at international shows such as Madrid, s’Hertogenbosch and Oslo in Europe; in World Cup qualifiers, (placed sixth in the 2007 Monterrey qualifier, won by Hong Kong silver medallist, Ninja) and at the 2007 Pan American Games (individual 15th place & member of the sixth-placed Guatemala team).
Orestus, with Juan Andrés Rodriguez, also claimed 42nd place at the 2008 Olympics.
With the thousands of horses on the international show jumping circuit whittled down to some 80 of the world’s best for the Olympics, it’s an amazing achievement to compete at that level. And if breeders look at the impact made by the progeny of such Olympic stallions as Darco, Quito de Baussy and Touchdown, they must consider stallions proven at these levels.
ORESTUS has a pedigree, consisting of the best European and Thoroughbred bloodlines, that has delivered on it’s promise.
Not only does his pedigree consist of 49% TB blood, but it also contains some of the leading sires in modern warmblood history. This combination of quality and performance lines also includes a double dose of the famous sires, Ramzes and Cottage Son on both sides of his pedigree.
Indoctro is a combination of the best European lines with the powerful Capitol I, refinement of Ramzes and technique of Cor de la Bryere all represented in his pedigree.image
This Preferent sire has already produced several Olympic horses - Orestus, Don Porfirio and Picolien Zeldenrust (Beijing) and Nike (Athens). His progeny also include the 2005 KWPN Horse Of The Year - BMC Nassau - the 2005 European Championships individual and team bronze medallist; Black Ice, (President’s Cup winner at the 2007 Washington International Horse Show) and Casadora.
Like Orestus, Casadora was in action at the 2007 Pan American Games and was on the bronze medal-winning team.
More consistent prizewinners on the United States Grand Prix circuit include Nadia, Youp and VDL Orame.  The latter,  winner of the Culpepper $100,000 Invitational Grand Prix, shares the same bloodlines as Orestus as both are out of Ramiro Z dams.
Another of Chris Kappler’s Indoctro winners is Maserati - a full-brother to Orestus! In the 2006 Grand Prix at the prestigious Zwolle Stallion Show, three of Indoctro’s sons were in the top 20 placings - the full brothers, Orestus and Maserati, plus VDL Orame.
Indoctro regularly features in the WBFSH (9th in 2008, 15th in 2009) and the United States Equestrian Federation showjumping sire rankings (2nd in 2007, 10th in 2008) and in the top three Holstein rankings.
Celrite.  This Keur Preferent Prestatie dam has produced proven performers on both sides of the Atlantic and like Indoctro, her blueblood pedigree is packed with the best of bloodlines.
Her ‘Stallion of the Century’ sire, Ramiro Z produced the superstar, Ratina Z.  He also goes back to two more leading influences in modern showjumping - the famous Anglo-Arab, Ramzes and the legendary Cottage Son, who traces back to the ubiquitous Dark Ronald. !image
Ramzes also features in the damline of Libero H, (sire of Jessica Kuerten’s superstar, Libertina) and another world-class mare, Jan Tops’ Operetta la Silla.
The famous Thoroughbred sire, Erdball, produced Nick Skelton’s multiple medal-winning partner, multiple Grand Prix and dual Hickstead Derby winner, Apollo and Just Malone. Helena Weinberg’s great character also notched up numerous wins in the 1980s including the Rome and Wiesbaden Grand Prix classes and the German national championship. Erdball is also the damsire of VDL Groep Powerfee, ridden by Samantha McIntosh. 
Another HVL sire with a world-class pedigree, the Olympic horse ORESTUS is yet another exciting stallion prospect for HVL Stud.
Orestus is fully approved by Horse Sport Ireland, the Swedish Warmblood Association (SWA).

CONTENDRO I - Contender x Reichsgraf

World Class stallion ranked 16th in the 2016 WBFSH for Showjumping Sires and 1st in the eventing section!

The career of the extraordinary sire Contendro I in key words: 1999 Holstein premium stallion, winner of the 2000 stallion performance test, placed in the 2001 Holstein Riding Horse Championships and nominated for the Bundeschampionat. His heavy breeding schedule only allowed sporadic appearances at shows but when he competed, he always took home a ribbon.
His sire, Contender, is one of the world’s leading jumper-makers. His dam Bravo is also the dam of the licensed stallion Caretano Z (by Caretino) who died much too early in 2001 after a brief but highly successful career as the 1997 Vice Bundeschampion, 1999 World champion of 7-year old show jumpers and placing in the World Cup Final of Gothenberg/SWE. She also gave birth to a full sister, BB Caretana/Niklaus Schurtenberger/SUI, a highly successful international show jumper mare. In 2003, Bravo gave birth to Contendro I’s full brother Contendro II, her third licensed son, and in 2008 her fourth, the Holstein Verband stallion Cassito (by Cassiano). The granddam, Ofarim, is the dam of a licensed stallion named Conteur (by Contender) who qualified for the Nürnberg Burg Pokal. Her daughter Evita XII (by Reichsgraf) is the dam of the licensed Caballo (by Coriano), who is successful in the US.
Contendro I is one of the best advertisements for the famous Holstein performance line 104 a. By the time he was 14 years old, he was a prize-winning millionaire. Meanwhile, Contendro’s offspring have won more than 1.6 million Euros in prizes. Nearly 40 of his offspring successfully compete in advanced (S) level dressage. At least 86 of his sons were licensed and more than 98 daughters have been awarded a State Premium. Contendro I has sent around 250 offpring just the auctions in Verden alone. In 2012, Contendro I was by far the youngest sire among the top 13 of the world’s best jumper-makers according to the WBFSH Ranking (World Breeding Federation for Sport Horses) and he ranked tenth among event sires. Figures that impressively prove the exceptional status of Contendro I.
Contentro I’s offspring also made headlines in 2012. Not only the Olympic Game participant, Codex One, surpassed the 100,000 Ero prize money benchmark but also Holiday by Solitour with Janne Friederike Meyer and Constantin B with Hans-Dieter Dreher. And it won’t be long now before Queen Mary, Corvin, Eurocommerce Callahan and Campbel reach this mark.
Corona, ridden by Sandra Afffarth, took the Bundeschampion title for event horses (5-year olds). Conrolus (breeder: Claus Delfs, Steinburg) tok the Vice Champion title at the Dobrock “Deister” Show Jumper Championships and then fifth place in the Bundeschampionat Final. Twelve Contendro offspring alone qualified for Warendorf. Concalido won the Final of the Hanoverian Championships in the class for four-year old show jumpers and was then sold at the P.S.I. Auction. Contina (breeder: Bernd Riehm, Weil der Stadt) won the Free Jumping Competition in Vechta in the class for four-year olds.
Licensed for Hanover (also the Jumper Breeding Program), Holstein, Oldenburg, OS, Westphalia, Rhineland, Mecklenburg, all Southern Verbands, France, Italy, Netherlands, Switzerland and Hungary

Air Jordan Z was an International Showjumper by Argentinus x Matador x Weinstern who finished 2nd at the World Cup Final in Las Vegas!

Air Jordan Z, a top horse of world class, with Olympic qualities. The Oldenburger stallion Air Jordan Z confirmed a few years ago his tremendous achievements, for example in the Global Champions Tour under Daniel Deusser. imageWith this rider he also won the reserve title in the world cup finals in Las Vegas. Before that Air Jordan Z had already been successful in the international show jumping sport under Judy-Ann Melchior. Sire Argentinus (Argentan I) has over the past few years specifically profiled himself as a producer of top class show jumping horses with World Cup winner Anka (Marcus Ehing),imagethe Olympic show jumping stallion Adlantus As (Lars Nieberg) and the successful Arko III (Nick Skelton). On his dam’s side Air Jordan Z carries the blood of the famous Hanoverian Sprudelquelle family. Via the stallions Matador (Matrose), Weinstern (Weingau), Cher xx (Wilwyn xx) and Einglas (Athos) this dam’s line goes back to Franziska (Frustra II x Damm). This famous mare from the studfarm of the Haack family is the basis of more than ten licensed stallions.

A.QUIDAM M - Quidam de Revel x Caretino

A.Quidam M is a stunning looking Dutchbred stallion with No.3 and No.4 stallions in the world showjumping rankings in his pedigree such as Quidam De Revel and Caretino! He has the most amazing temperament and has jumped up to 1.30m! He is so far N1 with Horse Sport Ireland and licensed with the AES.

A Quidam M was selected from a leading Dutch stud farm in the autumn of 2007. This beautifully-bred son of Quidam de Revel (regarded as the “Northern Dancer” of the modern warm blood)  got his competition and stud career off to a flying start in 2009!
In his first season at stud, he attracted close to 50 top quality mares with 44 scanned in foal while in the autumn, he began clocking up double clears in his first outings with Irish international show jumper, Paul O’Shea. 

“A Quidam M has just started his show jumping career with me and shows all the promise and potential you could hope for. He has a super temperament and is so easy to work with”   
- Paul O’Shea

A Quidam M ~ has an exceptional pedigree, full of Olympic, World champions and Grand Prix winners on both sides.
Sire - Quidam de Revel: image
* Team bronze and individual fourth at the Barcelona Olympics
* TEN of his progeny competed at the 2002 World Equestrian Games
* The leading WBFSH sire for two successive years
* Sire of 48 CSI winners in 2007
* Already the sire of Top 20 sires, Guidam and Nahab de Reve.
These are just some of the facts about Quidam de Revel’s own performance record and his proven progeny, which also numbers Jessica Kurten’s brilliant Quibell.
Guidam is most noted as the sire of Beezie Madden’s stellar partner, Authentic. Consecutive team gold at Athens and Hong Kong Olympics; individual bronze at Hong Kong; team silver at the 2006 World Equestrian Games and winner of the 2007 Aachen Grand Prix are just some of Authentic’s world-class achievements.
Authentic also holds the record as the highest-priced gelding in show jumping history when sold for $5,000,000 in 2005.
Guidam also produced the Hong Kong individual silver medallist - Ninja, ridden by Sweden’s Rolf-Goran Bengtsson. He is one of the few sires to produce TWO individual showjumping medallists at the same Olympics.
Yet more of Guidam’s successful offspring include King George V Gold Cup winner, Armani and the 2004 Aga Khan hero, Luidam.
Jalisco B ~ A Quidam M’s grand-sire - holds the record for the most progeny competing in the Olympic Games and his progeny include the household names of Quito de Baussy and Hermes de Reve. The latter topped the Irish Horse Board’s 2007 Genetic Breeding Index table.
Now you can see why HVL Stud’s exciting young sire’s pedigree reads like a Who’s Show in Selle Francais and continental breeding - Quidam de Revel .. Alme Z (responsible for the Galoubet A ~ Touchdown ~ Liscalgot line) …and the omnipotent influence of Furioso and Precipitation.
Dam ~ Minook. Her impressive pedigree features blue-blood Holstein and Thoroughbred lines going back to Caletto, Cor de La Bryere, (Cavalier Royale’s sire who features in most of our broodmare’s pedigrees), Ramzes, Cottage Son, Son In Law and Bay Ronald.
Her sire, Caretino, one of Germany’s top sires,  scored 9.5 for jumping during his 100-day test and has since consistently featured in the WBFSH show jumping sire rankings, (5th in 2001, 4th in 2009). 
Caretino’s current top performer is the Richard Spooner-partnered Cristallo, (12th in the 2009 WBFSH rankings),  winner of the $400,000 Monte Carlo Grand Prix.image
Amongst Caretino’s other progeny are the 2001 Hamburg Derby winner, Camirez; AK Caridor Z; Crocodile Dandy; and ToyzRus, ridden by Pan-American individual gold medallist, Jill Henselwood.
The 2008 United States Equestrian Federation jumper sire rankings were dominated by A Quidam M’s relatives - Quidam de Revel (2nd); Caretino (4th) and Guidam (5th).
Another of Caretino’s best-known stallion sons is Cheenook - Minook’s full-brother!
Licensed with the Hanover, Holstein, Oldenburg, Westphalia and the South German Breeder’s studbooks, Cheenook recorded a jumping index score of 140 and was trained to Grand Prix dressage level before his premature death.
He has produced two approved sons, including the U.S-based Coco Cavalli and on the performance front, sired Cyrenaika, winner of both the Hanoverian and Federal six-year-old show jumping championships. Another daughter, Cindy Crawford, also placed in these championships before going on to an international career with Piet Raymakers.
Cheenook was the leading sire in the United States Equestrian Federation (USEF) 2008 hunter rankings.
Minook has also produced A Quidam M’s half-brother - Zaretino M. He was one of 200 five-year-olds to compete at the 2009 World Breeding Championships in Lanaken and one of forty through to the final. Just one unlucky pole down but like A Quidam M, one to look out for.
Minook and Cheenook’s maternal grand-sire - Romantiker - is by the world-famous Ramiro Z who goes back to the influential Anglo-Arab sire, Ramzes, one of the foundation sires of the modern Holsteiner.
Ramiro Z is perhaps most famous as the sire of the brilliant Ratina Z (this Olympic mare was out of an Almé dam).
