Exceptional first crop of foals
The expectations were high - and he exceeded them. Vivino's first foals presented themselves as if they all came from the same mould: extremely noble, with a lot of natural cadence and maximum swing.
The premium stallion of the Hanoverian licensing, who surpassed all stallion market records for the sensational knockdown price of 2.01 million Euros, won the qualification for the Danish Young Horse Championships under Andreas Helgstrand/DEN. Previously, the stallion with an almost perfect conformation, who hardly touches the ground, was also named premium stallion in Denmark. He also completed his stallion performance test there with top scores and finished fourth of an incredibly strong field of candidates with a total score of 880.0 points.
His sire Vivaldi is out of the Dutch famous blood line, the Utopia line and counts international Grand Prix stallions one after another in his pedigree, such as Krack C/Anky van Grunsven/NED and Jazz/Tineke Bartels/NED. He was Reserve Champion of his stallion performance test in the Netherlands and won the Pavo Cup for five-year-old dressage horses in 2007. In 2008 and 2009, ridden by Hans Peter Minderhoud/NED, he won the KNHS/KWPN stallion competition, where he was awarded 10 for his trot. He was then internationally successful up to Prix St. Georges. In 2013, he won the VHO trophy at the KWPN licensing. After that, he was predominantly used for breeding and now appears among the top ten of the world's best dressage sires of the WBFSH ranking (currently 6th).
His dam St.Pr.St. Desiree was a prize winner at the Herwart von der Decken show in Verden in 2013.
His dam’s sire Dancier was Champion of the Hanoverian licensing in 2004. Since then, he has been victorious up to Prix St. Georges in dressage. The crowd of his 40 licensed sons is led by Harmony's Don Noblesse/Susan Pape/GBR, who is victorious at Grand Prix level and was sold for a high price at the P.S.I. Auction, and our Westphalian Champion Stallion, Danciero, who was the top price of the stallion market, auctioned for 700,000 Euros.
His grand-dam St.Pr.St. Fabienne produced Dany White, who was successful up to Prix St. Georges level, and his successful full brother, Del Gado (both by De Niro).
Perfect aspirant for the big arenas
