Vaderland’s sire, Vitalis, is now a top dressage horse breeder and very popular all over the world. With his expensive offspring, he dominated the German auction (s) in Münster-Handorf, produced numerous elite mares and has more than 25 approved sons to date. In 2016 his daughter Victoria Secret became World Champion of the five-year-old dressage horses. Vitalis himself celebrated his sporty comeback under the saddle of Isabel Freese and won the prestigious Nürnberger Burgpokal.
Vaderland’s dam is the mare Vechta by the Grand Prix stallion Krack C out of the Contango daughter Nevada. Vechta also produced Impressive VDC (by Charmeur) who was selected in 2020 with Sarah Mills for the canceled World Championships for young dressage horses. The BWP approved stallion Heros Begijnhoeve (v. Vivaldi) comes from the mare line. Tommie Visser’s international dressage horse Fanatique Begijnhoeve (PSG-Inter I) is also closely related to Vaderland. The dam’s line also produced the approved stallion Nachtwach (v. Nocturn), Joilet (v. El Corona) – Z dress, Diavola (v. Diamo) – 1.30m spr. and Avalanche (v. Tjungske) – 135m. spr.
Last year the first foals of Vaderland were born and they immediately stood out with their beautiful front and great appearance and strong movements. Some were already sold dearly at auctions. For example, 30,000 euros was paid for his daughter (from a Fairytale mother) at the “Reiten gegen den Hunger” auction in Balve. His children were also very popular at the auctions in Oldenburg and Westphalia. At the Brouwer Auctions Stables, his son Professor W.S. the most expensive at 23,000 euros.
His foals move uphill and in the trot they have a great foreleg use with a lot of shoulder freedom, a lot of knee, looseness and elasticity. They trot with a powerful and active hind leg.
