We had such positive breeding results with the frozen semen of Vivaldos last season 2021,that I had to reorder mid season. From the station SOSATH, long known for solid, sensible competition and riding horses, we are adding additional young sires from them. Still reasonably priced with good fertility.
Vivaldos was licensed at the Hanoverian licensing in 2018 and was awarded as premium stallion. From day one, he convinced the licensing committee and the audience with his elastic movements, his outstanding mechanics and his presence. Together with his three equally good basic gaits, he was the subject of discussion at the licensing.
The chestnut stallion is very typey, middle framed and is already very well balanced. In his daily work he is always motivated and willing to learn.
The Hanoverian breeding and managing director Dr. Werner Schade said at the announcement of the judgmentsthat he has “an ideal body division, very loose, elastic movements, he has celebrated it here again today”.
In 2019, Vivaldos passed his 14-days-test at Adelheitsdorf.
After a very good year of breeding, he made his show debut in 2020 by winning the riding class in Höven with a final score of 8.6. Shortly after, he was placed on the 4th and 5th position in the Hanoverian Championships and nominated for the “Bundeschampionat”.
At his first show in 2021, Vivaldos qualified directly for the Bundeschampionat for 5-year-old dressage horses
Sire Vivaldi is regarded as one of the best Dutch breeding stallions. He was reserve champion of his performance test and won the Pavo Cup for five-year-old dressage horses under the saddle of Dutch championship rider Hans Peter Minderhoud in 2007. In the following years, he was very successful in the KNHS/KWPN stallion series and received a mark of 10.0 several times for his trot. Internationally, he was successful up to PSG/Intermediate.
Vivaldos’ dam, the St. Pr. Mare Doris Day, impressed everybody at the age of three when she convinced judges of her talents during her mare performance test. In 2010 she won the Herwart-von-der-Decken-Show and Friedrich-Jahncke-Show, was Hanoverian Champion as well as the winner of the “Bundeschampionat” in Warendorf. She produced the Han. Pr. Anw. Fräulein by Ampère (HvdDS 2014 1a) and Fräulein Inez also by Ampère (HvdDS 2017 1b awarded) as well as the licensed stallion Alphaville by Ampère.
Dam sire Desperados FRH passed his 30-day test in Schlieckau with highest marks and was premium stallion of his licensing. He was Hanoverian Champion 2004 and won double bronze at the Bundeschampionat in 2004 and 2005. Under the saddle of Kristina Bröring-Sprehe he became one of the most successful German dressage horses of the last years. He won and was placed in numerous Grand Prix competitions. In 2016 he won team gold and individual bronze at the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. He was also the undisputed number 1 of the WBFSH World Ranking List Dressage in 2016.
Vivaldos’ dam line of “Duftelfe” produced several highly successful dressage horses. S-level successful dressage horses are for example Bon Jovi 49 by Brentano II, Sir Salvatore 2 by Sir Donnerhall I, So What by Sir Donnerhall, Buddy Holly 6 by Brentano II and Highlight by Hill Hawk xx. Tirol by Polydor is successful in show jumping competitions in the advanced (S) level. Also licensed stallions belong to this dam line such as Alphaville (Vivaldos’ half brother), Quidamo, San Sambaro, Sir Salvatore 2 and Weltmeyer II.
