Stallion, Chesnut, KWPN, 2007


Hans Peter Minderhoud met Vitalis 2012

Hengstenshow Verden 2009

Vitalis is the reserve champion of the NRW-stallion show in Westfalia Germany. In 2007 he was champion of the foal championship in Holland, now he is the first approved son out of the first year of Vivaldi.

His father is one of the most desired dressage progenitors of his generation and descends out of the highly appreciated Utopia line. Vivaldi’s half sister Wiona Utopia became champion at the national mare show in 2006. With Krack C (Anky van Grunsven), Jazz (Tineke Bartels) and Cocktail (Anky van Grunsven) we see three generations Grand Prix horses in a row in Vivaldi’s pedigree. As five year old Vivaldi won the Pavo Cup, now he is ready to start Grand Prix. The stallion is ridden by Hans Peter Minderhoud. Out of his first years of breeding, Vivaldi has an excellent group of successors. In 2009, out of 10 foals that were selected for the finals of the foal championship, 8 descended from Vivaldi.

As three year old the mother of Vitalis was the mare champion of the province Limburg in Holland. The Dam sire D-day was successful at Prix St George level. The Great grand father Argus was successful at Grand Prix level in both dressage and jumping. The stallion Aktion, out of the fourth generation, was ridden at Grand Prix level.

In 2012 Vitalis represented The Netherlands with rider Marieke van der Putten on the World Championships for young Dressage horses in Verden.

In 2013 Vitalis will compete again at the World Championships in Verden. Now, however, for the USA. With his new owner, Charlotte Jorst, Vitalis qualified himself with, for America, the highest record.

Update February 2017:

Vitalis proved himself more than enough. Top stallion. Top offspring.
