Former Westfalien State Stud director Dr Lehmann is not happy with the direction of modern breeding, in particular the breeding policies of the Hanoverian Stud Book.
Berny Maubach has always marched to the beat of his own drum when selecting stallions and breeding sport horses; if he hasn’t always been in step with the perceived wisdom, he hasn’t been the least concerned.
Vollrath Lessing, Berny Maubach’s handsome black five-year-old stallion, ridden by Jutta Rosenblatt, immediately took the eye in the Astek Stud Young Dressage Horse championship at the recent Bates NZ Dressage Championships, writes Joan Gilchrist.

Warmbloods are bred on the same principle as our NZ Sheepdogs, to achieve utility and performance. What we can expect of them is already genetically embedded and needs only development and training to maximise this inherent potential into an absolute top class riding horse.
