Veritas (Vitalis x Don Schufro x Master 850) is a handsome 4-year-old registered 16 hh Hanoverian gelding. He has a powerhouse dressage pedigree, a superb walk, flashy trot and a uphill canter. He is very soft mouthed and light in the hand and is brave, not spooky, not hot and does not need lunging. He is easy to sit and is safe enough for an Ad.Am. but has three very good gaits and offers many generations of proven Grand Prix horses in his pedigree to make him interesting for any level of rider. He is schooling 1st Level with 10 meter circles and leg yeilds. He hacks quietly alone outside, and has begun shoulder fore. He has unblemished correct legs, excellent feet and is a happy calm full day turnout horse. He clips, baths, loads, ties, and stands for hot shoeing without issues. 

Veritas' sire Vitalis (Vivaldi x D-Day) is becoming one of the new hot leadings sires of upper level dressage horses. His offspring are known for extremely good rideability and temperaments in addition to their quality gaits and conformation. His offspring have already reached Grand Prix arenas and dominate all levels with all types of riders! The young Vitalis son Vamos Amigos posted a whopping 81,86% at the recent World Dressage Championships under Cathrine Dufour for Denmark. He joins many other top young Vitalis' that are making a big name for themselves in International compeition. The licensed stallion Va’Pensiero won the German and Hanoverian Championships of three-year-old stallions. Villeneuve, who is also a licensed stallion, qualified for the Nuremberg Burg Cup with Dorothee Schneider with a score of over 77 percent and finished eighth in the final after coming second in the preliminary class. Our stallion Valverde NRW secured his third title at the Westphalian Championships, came fourth at the German Championships and was selected for the World Championships for young dressage horses, which, however, could not take place due to the coronavirus pandemic. Vayron won the international Small Tour in Neumünster with Helen Langehanenberg with over 75 percent.. The licensed stallion Vaderland was bronze medalist at the Oldenburg Regional Championships, Violetta D was silver medalist at the Southern German Championships. The number of Vitalis' licensed sons now amounts to 46, with the stallions mentioned above, Valverde (Champion Stallion, triple Westphalian Champion, German Champion and fourth at the World Championships for young dressage horses), Villeneuve (Reserve Champion, Vice World Champion, third at the German Championships and eighth in the Burg Cup), and Vaderland (Westphalian Reserve Champion, Regional Championships bronze medalist), clearly standing out. Valencia AS/Fabienne Müller-Lütkemeier was placed at the CHIO in Aachen. Van der Veen was also 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. The Westphalian Champion Mare Vienna and the Rhineland Champion Mare Virginia K stand out amongst the 60 state premium mares. Vitalis’ foals often reach top prices: the colt Vardy was sold for 120,000 Euros at the Oldenburg Elite Auction. 

Veritas’ dam the Elite/Premium mare Katitzi (Don Schufro x Master 850) was imported from Sweden and has already produced two Grand Prix horses, multiple Advanced Level dressage horses and a World Young Dressage Horse Championship competitor. Zazzles dam-sire Don Schufro (Donnerhall x Pik Bube I) is one of the world’s more influential and successful dressage sires of all time, in addition to being a proven Olympic Grand Prix medal winning star. Katitzi’s dam, Elite mare Uvularia (Master x Chagall) is a full sister to US rider Leslie Morse’s World Equestrian Games Bronze Medal partner Tip-Top. Not only a top International Grand Prix Dressage horse, Tip-Top is also a licensed Erkend stallion. Zazzles great dam-sire Master 850 was competed internationally at Grand Prix by Kyra Kyrklund. Elite mare Katitzi’s pedigree features maternal line breeding to the ‘Lessy 65’ dam line; one of the most prolific and highest yielding high sport dam lines in dressage breeding. The Lessy line has consistently been ranked as one of the top ten mare families whose offspring had the most success in dressage in the world.
