Best dressage horse of all times- Three-time World Champion, Three-time world record holder
A dressage stallion in perfection, a living legend of such a quality that is certainly unique. Totilas has changed the world of dressage, set three world records, which he himself had broken again and again, within a short time under Edward Gal. Within the space of only two years, this exceptional stallion has won all the titles there are to win – two times Individual Gold and a Team Gold at the 2010′ World Championships, Individual and Team Gold at the European Championships in Windsor, 2010′ World Cup winner and best horse of the German silver team under Matthias Alexander Rath in 2011. Totilas is leading the dressage sport to new public presence.
Sire of Totilas, Gribaldi, was Trakehner champion stallion, Trakehner stallion of the year 2008 and was himself internationally successful with Edward Gal. Gribaldi is on third place right behind Jazz and Florestan in the current world ranking of dressage sires (WBFSH). He has consistently produced top-class horses such as World Cup winner Painted Black/Anky van Grunsven, Grand Prix winner Sisther de Jeu/Edward Gal, Peter Pan/Beatriz Ferrer-Salat, BMC Pasternak/Coby van Baalen, Girasol/Nadine Capellmann or Zardin Firfod/Patrick Kittel. There are 19 licensed sons in Germany alone, including Trakehner champion stallion Imhotep and reserve champion All Inclusive. Totilas’ dam has produced one intermediate and one advanced level dressage horse as well as Totilas’ full sister, Uusminka. Granddam Elsa produced the advanced dressage horses Talan and Uljanoff. The dam line, which includes a lot of Holstein blood, has produced numerous approved stallions and many successful competition horses.
In 2011 his first crop was eagerly awaited and presented directly numerous top-class foals: Total Ideal was sold for 105,000 Euro at the Oldenburg Summer Mixed Sales, 90,000 Euro was the knock-down price for Tout le Monde at the Oldenburg Elite Foal Auction. In Hanover, a mare in foal of Totilas was sold for 42,000 Euro and many Totilas foals have achieved a good price directly at the farm-gate.
Totilas: He already is a sports legend – let him become a breeding legend too!
