Besides standing stallions, education and training dressage horses is our business. Well known representative of this section is the mare Cayenne (see above) owned by Akemi Tanaka, Tokyo, who became World Champion of the 5-y old dressage horses under Susan in August 2007 in Verden.
We attach special value to a sparing, age adjusted education of the horses. As students of Herbert Rehbein, we ride with soft aids and build up our horses with patience and praise to successful athletes. Baroncelli, who is also very successfully in the sport beside his father duties, is another example for this way of education.
For our stable the year 2007 was marked by many protruding highlights and is therefore a wonderful success story. Beginning with the summer auction in Verden, where Baroncelli was sire of the most expensive horse, the year was also marked for our breeders with many wonderful sale successes, licensed stallions and numerous state prime mares. The World Championships for young dressage horses and the dressage competitions in Verden occurred very well for us. The yearly meeting of the elites in the Hanoverian Championships, the World Championships for young dressage horses and the CDI * * * always represents an important season highlight. The three year class of the Hanoverian Championships could decide Rodrigo by Riverside - Hohenstein/T. - Davignon, breeder Otto Walter, Lamstedt, for himself. At the Elite Auction in October 2007 he changed into the Schulten-Baumer stables for 200.000 Euro.
Winner of the 4 year old horses was Dancing Elvis by Del Piero - Espri, breeder Erika Lütjen, Grasbergen. He later was auctioned in Ankum at the PSI-Auction for 700.000 Euro. San Remo could achieve with the World Championships in the class of 6 year old dressage horses a quite remarkable fifth and a tenth place. The qualification for the Piaff Förderpreis could decide Jessica Werndl with the Davignon son Duke (breeder Christoph Bulle, Lüdingworth) for herself. Later in the Stuttgarter finale, both achieved an outstanding 2. place.
Outstanding highlight for us was the victory of the World Championships in the class of 5 year old dressage horses. The mare Cayenne owned by Akemi Tanaka, Tokyo, could achieve this fantastic success with Susan and brought home this desired title. Baroncelli qualified him self for the finale of the Nuremberg Burgpokal by Susan’s victory in the St. Georges in Verden. Both achieved later in December in the finale of Frankfurt an outstanding 4. place. An exceptional honour turned to us in December. Our family was honored with the Lower Saxonia Honorary State Price for special performances in horse breeding.
