Vitalis transmits the winning gene: Valesco/Fabienne Müller-Lütkemeier/GER was unbeatable in his first Grand Prix season in the CDI4* Tour at the CHIO Aachen, came third in the Louisdor Prize Final and was awarded the Otto Lörke Prize for the best young dressage horse. Valencia AS/Fabienne Müller-Lütkemeier was placed second in the final of the Louisdor Prize. Vayron/Helen Langehanenberg/GER won the Grand Prix in Ankum. Vamos Amigos/Cathrine Dufour/DEN took the fourth place in the World Cup Freestyle in Lyon/FRA. First-Step Valentin/Larissa Pauluis/BEL took part in the European Championships. Vinay NRW/Ellen Richter/GER won the team gold medal in the U25 European Championships and won the gold medal in the U25 German Championships.
Van der Veen was victorious in Small Tour with Carl Hedin/SWE. In 2016, Victoria’s Secret became World Champion in Ermelo after winning the German Championships the year before. Valentin H/Ines Knoll won the gold medal at the DSP Championships and at the Baden-Württember Regional Championships (3y.o.). Violetta D won the silver medal and Vanilla Sky won the bronze medal.
The number of Vitalis’ licensed sons now amounts to over 50, with the stallions Valverde NRW (Champion Stallion, triple Westphalian Champion, German Champion and fourth at the World Championships for young dressage horses), Vogue (Westphalian Reserve Champion, 940,000 Euro Stallion Market top price), Vitalos (German and Hanoverian Champion 4y.o.) and Viva Vitalis (Mecklenburg Champion Stallion), as well as Villeneuve (Reserve Champion, Vice World Champion, third at the German Championships and eighth in the Burg Cup), Vaderland (Westphalian Reserve Champion and Regional Championships bronze medallist) and Va’Pensiero (German and Hanoverian Champion 3y.o.) clearly standing out.
The Champion Mares Va’Pensiera (Hanover), Vienna (Westphalia), Virginia K (Rhineland) and Valerie (Baden-Württemberg) stand out amongst around 100 state premium mares. The latter also secured gold at the DSP Championships with Nicola Haug and bronze at the Baden-Württemberg Regional Championships (3y.o.).
Vitalis’ foals often reach top prices: the colt Vardy was sold for 120,000 Euros at the Oldenburg Elite Auction. With a knock-down price of 61,000 Euros, Vermeer was the price highlight of the Elite Foal Auction in Vechta in 2021.
Vitalis was Champion Foal in the Netherlands in 2007, Reserve Champion of the NRW licensing in 2009, winner of the dressage index of his stallion performance test in 2010, placed at the World Championships and Pavo Cup final in 2012, Champion in the USA and again qualified for the World Championships with a record number of points in 2013 and victorious in the International Small Tour at only seven years old in 2014. He came back to Germany and, in 2016, ridden by Isabel Freese, he won the Burg Cup final in Frankfurt and the “Stallion of the year” competition at Inter I level at the World Championships in Ermelo/NED.
Vitalis was Vivaldi’s first licensed stallion. Vivaldi was Reserve Champion of his stallion performance test in the Netherlands. In 2007, he won the Pavo Cup for five-year-old dressage horses and in 2008 and 2009, ridden by Hans Peter Minderhoud/NED, he won the KNHS/KWPN stallion competition, where he was awarded 10 for his trot. He was then internationally successful up to Prix St. Georges. In 2013, he won the VHO trophy at the KWPN licensing. After that, he was predominantly used for breeding and Vivaldi produced numerous exceptional stallions, namely in the Netherlands with Desperado N.O.P./Emmelie Scholtens/NED, Glock’s Dream Boy N.O.P./Hans Peter Minderhoud/NED, Expression/Diederik van Silfhout/NED, Eye Catcher and Ferdinand, and in Germany with Van Vivaldi (Westphalian Reserve Champion), Versace (Oldenburg Reserve Champion), Cennin/Madeleine Witte-Vrees/NED (Oldenburg Ic main premium stallion), Veneziano/Daniel Bachmann Andersen/DEN (second Oldenburg Reserve Champion), Livaldon (Hanoverian premium stallion) as well as Vivino, record top price of the Stallion Market, sold for over two million euros and Hanoverian premium stallion.

The great-grand-sire Argus was successful in Grand Prix in dressage but also in show jumping and Aktion J, who follows in the fourth generation counts as one of the most successful dressage stallions of his generation ridden by Gyula Dallos/HUN.
