RASTEDE, Germany, July 27–Carlotta, by Donnerhall out of Cinderella by Santander H-Inschallah AA in 2006, has been crowned Champion Mare of the Oldenburg Elite Broodmare Show.

The mare was bred and owned by Heinz Wulf from Saterland.

“This year we are looking at a competition with an exceptionally wide range of top quality mares in the Brillant ring,“ said Dr. Wolfgang Schulze-Schleppinghoff, Breeding Director of the Verband der Züchter des Oldenburger Pferdes e.V., while viewing the modern mares on the show grounds of the Schlosspark in Rastede, the venue of the State Show. Carlotta’s dignified and commanding aura were what tipped the scales in her favor to win the title.

Carlotta comes from the mare line of Cilla which is strongly influenced by Arabian genes and one of the crown jewels in Oldenburg dressage horse breeding. Cilla’s daughter Cileste, for example, is the dam of seven licensed sons, including Welt Hit I O to VI, Bundeschampionat winners and six siblings that successfully compete in advanced level dressage classes.

The presence of two Oldenburg sires that are particularly well-known for their beautiful daughters was especially obvious.

Among the 20 best mares at the show that competed for the title in the Brillant ring, Romanov Blue Hors by Rohdiamant-Grundstein II and Sir Donnerhall by Sandro Hit-Donnerhall were represented by four daughters. Three Romanov daughters were among the top 10, including the classic Oldenburg bred Reserve Champion Mare, Femina, a strong moving daughter out of Fabina by Donnerhall-Pik Bube I, who won the Elite Broodmare Show in 2003. Femina was bred by the Danish Gestüt Blue Hors.

The title at the Elite Broodmare Show of Springpferdezuchtverband Oldenburg-International was awarded to Raja Luzandra, born 2006, by Ludwig von Bayern out of Razza Nobile by Lordanos-Argentinus-Grannus, bred by the well-known show jumping rider, Horst Schlüsselburg from Stuhr. The judge, Jürgen Esch, praised “her charming feminine flair in connection with a typical Oldenburg performance line” and pointed to the excellent scores she received for her jumping talent at the broodmare performance test. The Reserve Champion Mare title in the lot of jumper mares was awarded to Gitania by Grandeur out of Fair Lady by Landadel-Fürstengold-Grande. This medium-sized but not less performance-oriented brown mare was bred by Andreas Volze from Borken.
