Oldenburg main premium winner 2012
At the Oldenburg Stallion Days 2012 in Vechta he set a milestone: After the performance test evaluation and his first foals, Foundation was the dominant I-a main premium winner of dressage stallions in 2012. Numerous foals out of his first crop of foals were sold for top prices at foal auctions in Vechta and Verden.
Foundation projects a certain charisma combined with enormous ground-covering movements, engaged hindquarters stepping under the centre of gravity, a wonderfully uphill canter and a fantastic character. Foundation has since won his first dressage tests up to elementary (L) level with his riders Anja Engelbart and Matthias-Alexander Rath. This year his first offspring will be presented at the licensings.
He finished his 30-day test in Schlieckau with dream scores: a 10.0 for trot and canter in the final test, a 9.5 each for character and willingness to perform as well as a 9.25 for rideability. His sire Fidertanz, striking NRW Champion Stallion in 2004, is successful up to Intermediare I and has so far produced 41 licensed sons. Foundation is the younger full brother of the licensed stallion and finalist of the Bundeschampionship, Fiderstar.Foundation originates from the Hanoverian mare line 569/Paninka, which produced, as well as 30 licensed stallions, Isabell Werth’s multiple Grand Prix winner Apache and the internationally successful sport horses Albertino/Lars Nieberg, Cheyenne 29/Rene Tebbel and The Sixth Sense/Thomas Frühmann. Grand dam Weniga produces the 17-time advanced level test winner Queeny, who competed successfully at Grand Prix with Victoria Michalke, as well as the Prix St. Georges winner Lord/Kathleen Keller.
