We have made a well considered decision: After the 2015 season our principal stallion Vollrath Lessing will be looking for a new home. His sale is in a way sad, but we must cope with what we have – only 16 acres of grazing.
Having three stallions is simply too much. We also have our Lessing mares to breed on from with our other stallions Gershwin and Remi Lion King, who has closely related sire lines to Lessing.
This season may be the last chance for New Zealand breeders to use this young stallion before his sale.
Below is from May, 2011; Double “O” judge, Cara Witham from Canada comments on Lessing, then aged five. Test rider is Dr Ricky MacMillan, of Australia.
The below video is from the 2012 North Island Dressage Championships, where Lessing won three of four tests at level 5 (open medium) and was crowned the 2012 NI Dressage Champion.
