Yesterday, Edward Gal and Nicole Werner officially announced that the Oldenburg stallion Serano Gold will be trained and competed by Gal in the future. The young dark bay stallion has already been in training at Gal's stable in Harskamp, The Netherlands, for two months

, despite his appearance under a female rider at the 2005 Oldenburg Althengst Parade at the end of November 2005.

Serano Gold is a 4-year old Oldenburg bred stallion by Sandro Hit out of St. Pr. St. Eskoria (by Grundstein II x Futuro). He is bred by Willi Gering and owned by Birte and Heinz Ahlers. In 2003 he finished sixth at the Bundeschampionate and second at the Regional Championships under Heiko Klausing. Serano Gold scored high notes in his 30-day stallion test, receiving 9.7 for rideability.

"We are ecstatic that we succeeded in finding a top class rider like Edward Gal for Serano Gold," Heinz Ahlers stated. "Edward will be preparing him for the next show season." Through mediation of Emmy de Jeu and Goffe Nil van der Zijden, Serano Gold got placed at Gal's stable for the training of his dressage career.
