The German owned Oldenburg licensed stallion Ibiza has moved in training with Emmelie Scholtens. The 3-year old chestnut Desperado x Jazz x Contango is Dutch warmblood bred, but licensed for Oldenburg and Hanover.
Bred by Luc Boogert, Ibiza was the top selling foal at the 2013 Midden-Nederland KWPN Foal Auction. The chestnut was a last minute wild card addition to the auction collection and stallion owner Jan Vink acquired it for a top price of 72,000 euro, the second highest price ever paid for a foal at a Dutch foal auction at the time.
Ibiza was licensed at the 2015 Oldenburg Stallion licensing in Vechta and presented there by Dutch horse dealer Ad Valkd. He sold for 170,000 euro at the auction. Initially it was reported that Ibiza sold back to owner Jan Vink, but the horse later turned out to have gone into German hands. The young stallion was acquired by Vasco Janke from Jesteburg, Germany.
Ibiza did his Stallion Performance Test in Adelheidsdorf in the spring of 2016. He was later approved for Hanoverian breeding, but is not licensed with its own KWPN society.
The horse has now moved in training with Emmelie Scholtens who aims at competing him in the 2017 Pavo Cup.
"Ibiza is here now for a few weeks. He is really a fun and good horse," Emmelie Scholtens told Eurodressagfe. "Ibiza was owned by Ad Valk so the owner contact him for training."
