Champion Stallion and German Champion
"We have seen a horse with outstanding movement quality here," the judges commented enthusiastically on the presentation of Valverde in 2019 at the German Championships for five-year-old dressage horses. The judges gave 9.5 for his ground-covering walk with "excellent stretching" and for his canter. He received 9.0 for his trot, demonstrating swing, elasticity and power for the hindquarters, and for submission. The general impression was marked 9.5. “The stallion has already showed his talent for collection.” Overall score: 9.5. Valverde started his career in 2016 as Westphalian Champion Stallion and the following year completed his stallion performance test in Denmark as the third best dressage stallion with a total score of 9.23 (10.0 for walk, character and conformation). Ridden by Eva Möller, Valverde won the gold medal at the Westphalian Championships and the silver medal at the four-year old German Championships. In 2019, before his victory at the German Championships, he won the Westphalian Championships again and came fourth at the World Championships for young dressage horses with 9.22 (10.0 for walk).
His first foals have exceeded the highest expectations. Valverde produced numerous show winners and coveted auction foals.
His sire Vitalis was Champion Foal in the Netherlands in 2007, Reserve Champion of the NRW licensing in 2009, winner of the dressage index of his stallion performance test in 2010, placed at the World Championships and Pavo Cup final in 2012, Champion in the USA and again qualified for the World Championships with a record number of points in 2013 and victorious in the International Small Tour at only seven years old in 2014. He came back to Germany and, in 2016, ridden by Isabel Freese, he won the Burg Cup Final in Frankfurt and the "Stallion of the year" competition at Inter I level at the World Championships in Ermelo/NED.
His dam St.Pr.St. Amicella was successful up to Inter I.
His grand-dam St.Pr.St. First Fina is the half-sister of Enrico (by Ehrentusch), who was successful in Grand Prix, and of further successful dressage horses.
