Vollrath Hanoverian Stud is waiting up with a big surprise for the 2013 season:

We can offer breeders what we believe is a sensational trio of Hanoverian stallions with a 20% service fee discount for this season –

Lessing, Gershwin and Remi Lion King.

In addition to the proven and well-known sire Lessing, whose progeny are turning heads in Dressage and Eventing circles, Vollrath offers a true alternative to the ever repetitive genetic line-up of Dressage stallions with our young sire Gershwin.

Gershwin, representative of the famous Hanoverian G-line, combines the classical jumping pairing of Gotthard and Furioso with Ramires of the ever potent R-line.

By the full brother to Olympic Gold medalist Goldfever, Goldfever II, Gershwin also carries Doemitz-blood twice in his dam-line and connects through that to our foundation stallion Dynamit.

Gershwin is a very masculine young stallion in an attractive black jacket.

Strong shoulders and hindquarters bridged by a substantial and elastic back are based on solid legs with exceptionally strong and well-formed joints.

ex Roxanne (Ramires [Ramino] x Donata [Dorian x Desi])

Gershwin has a classically modeled head and a friendly, inquisitive face.

He is an intelligent, personable young horse who will mature into a significant stallion.

Gershwin will add power, elasticity and steadfastness to mares.

His siblings are earning high accolades at breeder shows in Germany.

The Hanoverian Verband is urging breeders to revive the G-line which stands for performance by using stallions of that descent, in particular the full brothers Goldfever and Goldfever II, in order to produce strength of the back with the dynamic push of the hind leg and elastic swing through the body that modern sires seem to be lacking.

Choose Gershwin for power, elasticity, temperament and performance!


The circle of life

With the purchase of Remi Lion King, a three-year-old Hanoverian colt by Lauries As, from Remi Stud, Australia, Berny and Jutta feel they are close to achieving what Berny set out to do some 30 years ago: breeding world-class horses on the basis of their own chosen, selected bloodlines.

This young sire ticks all the boxes: His pedigree is a fusion of old and new. At Vollrath, he will fit in beautifully as he combines all the existing bloodlines in his pedigree with sufficient new blood to spice up the mix.

There is a direct link to Lessing through his grandsire and Lessing’s sire Londonderry.

His dam’s sire Walt Disney I provides the connection to our foundation sire and Paralympic Gold medal winner Worldwide P.B. through their shared ancestor World Cup I while the double-up of Doemitz is shared by Dynamit and Gershwin who is also linked via Gotthard.

Remi Lion King also offers new blood for New Zealand with Pik Bube on his sire’s dam line, a highly influential stallion in the Hanoverian breeding, as well as sought-after proven Eventing TB lines with Mighty Kingdom and In The Purple.

Lion King is a beautifully put-together horse of modern build, truly uphill and athletic, which he proves with three spectacular, ground-covering, effortless gaits.

His expression is proud, manly and alert, yet calm, and his demeanor is well becoming of his name: he is Simba the young lion, who one day will be King!

Currently being broken in by Tor van den Berge in Australia, Remi Lion King will arrive in New Zealand in September, just in time for the breeding season.

It is also of note that in his dam line he is closely related to successful eventer Underdiscussion and, with Walt Disney I as the dam’s sire, provides a direct genetic link to the prolific German sire Londontime (Londonderry/Walt Disney I).

Breed a world-class Dressage horse or Eventer with Remi Lion King!
