The show in the Frankfurt Festhalle turned into a procession of triumphs for Dressage Horse Performance Center Lodbergen and Harli Seifert's breeding operation, Pferdezucht Harli Seifert. First of all, Markus Gribbe, a triple Nations Cups winner and head of training in Lodbergen, took third place in the Final of the Nürnberg Burg Pokal on Zuchthof Klatte's nine-year old Westphalian stallion, Farewell III. Eighth place in the same competition in which Germany's best young dressage horses competed went to Rubin Cortes under Hendrik Lochthowe. This eight-year old Rubin Royal son, who took third place in the warm-up test, is a member of Dressage Horse Performance Center's and Pferdezucht Harli Seifert's team of breeding stallions.
Couleur Rubin, bred by Harli Seifert, took second place in the Grand Prix of Frankfurt under Ludger Beerbaum and is also available to breeders through the Dressage Horse Performance Center Lodbergen and Pferdezucht Harli Seifert. The only faster couple in the Masters League of Frankfurt was Mario Stevens who celebrated his third Grand Prix victory on Mac Kinley and – to close the circle – is a new partner of the stallion station at the Dressage Horse Performance Center Lodbergen. His two licensed young stars, Callistus and Charming Boy, now effectively enhance the squad of stallions in Lodbergen that include Couleur Rubin, Don Gregory, Dylano, Rohdiamant, Royal Diamond, Rubin Cortes, Rubin Royal and the brand new 1st Oldenburg Reserve Champion, Dante Weltino.
If you want to see all of the breeding stallions in Lodbergen live, the next best opportunity is the Dressage Horse Performance Center's stallion show on February 27, 2010 at 6:30 p.m. in the Oldenburg Horse Center Vechta. Breeders and horse friends can look forward to an impressive event organized by Markus Gribbe – as well as Steven's awesome new show jumper, Celta Yar, a highly talented Selle Francais jumper by Elvis Amor (by Narcos II-Jalisco B)-Principe Duero, who won the Spanish Championships for young show jumpers many times and will now collect international ribbons under Mario Stevens.
