Dressage at Devon Analysis: Sneak Preview

I had a lovely time at the Dressage at Devon breed show 2018, in spite of the rain. What I saw in 2018 were American-bred winners being the rule rather than the exception. Of the horses in breed classes who scored over 80%, three-quarters were US-bred. Of the five top-scoring horses of all the breed classes, four were bred in the US. My full article, with horse and breeder profiles, will appear soon. Watch my news blog. ...read more

Viva Voltaire - Sire of Dressage and Hunter Champions
We consider Viva Voltaire, sire of International Dressage horses, numerous Champion Hunters and an AHS licensed stallion, our best kept secret.

We find our Viva offspring to be very marketable, especially as dressage and hunter prospects. Viva typically produces beautiful foals with much chrome, outstanding movement and scope over jumps and the most wonderful temperament.

During his first years as a breeding stallion, Viva produced outstanding horses for the dressage and hunter ring.

Three horses (born 2001) from Viva’s first year of breeding are training at the GP level in dressage. Viva Voltaire was the only stallion that had two offspring compete at the 2011 Pan Am Games in Dressage. Viva’s Salieri was the best horse for Team Canada that won the Silver Medal at the Pan Am Games in Mexico, finishing 4th individually with T. Dvorak.

Saltorello, Vivaldi, Viva Las Vegas, Viva’s Hit and Viva’s Primus claimed numerous Hunter and Equitation Championships in the US. In Ontario, “Otherwise” claimed the Ultimate Hunter Challenge title for the second time in 2009.

AHS licensed son “Vive Victory” was attested “almost unlimited scope over jumps” by AHS judge Dr. Schade.

Several “Vivas” have won young horse jumper classes both in Canada and the US.

Viva Voltaire has proven himself in the jumper ring, winning the Ontario Jumper Championship for 4 and 5 year old horses as a FOUR Year old. In 2001, he was Ontario Reserve Champion and Canadian Reserve Champion at the Royal Winter Fair. According to “Der Hannoveraner” Viva was the stallion with the best jumping technique at the Hannoverian licensing in 1998.

Viva offers his outstanding temperament, movement, versatility and athleticism to your breeding program. Both cooled and frozen semen is available. Semen shipments to US based mare owners are sent out of Buffalo, NY, as domestic shipments.
