Verbier, the acclaimed champion stallion of the 2024 Oldenburg Stallion Licensing in Ankum, will move into his stallion box at the Dressage Horse Performance Centre Lodbergen (DLZ) and will be available to breeders from 1 March.

Licensing Champion

The highly elegant, extremely strong-moving son from the first crop of the Celle state stud stallion and stallion performance test winner Von Und Zu sparked a real bidding duel in Ankum/GER, which was only decided at a bid of 720,000 euro - in favour of the renowned stallion station Lövsta Stuteri from Sweden.

Shortly after the bid was accepted, it was clear that the bay stallion Verbier, who was highly praised by Oldenburg's breeding director Bernhard Thoben for his wonderful uphill conformation, his great lines, his naturally ground covering movement and his exemplary lunge work with ideal contact, would initially remain in Germany.

"We are very happy to be able to offer this outstanding champion stallion to our breeders," explained DLZ operations manager Wolfgang Stagge. "And we would like to thank the team at Lövsta Stuteri Stallion Station for the trust they have placed in us."

The Oldenburg champion stallion Verbier is not the only new addition to the DLZ.
