Vhiognier ("Vinny") is under saddle and gaining confidence under his new rider, RSF trainer Jocelyn Kraenzle. He is very beautiful, has correct conformation and movement, and three super gaits. He is sired by the very highly regarded Vitalis and out of a super producing mare by Stedinger/Winterprinz- grand Prix talent in his pedigree. He was named Premium and Foal of Distinction at his foal inspection and under saddle, he is showing the promise his pedigree suggests.

Oldenburg (GOV) 16.3 h coming four year old
gelding born 5/21/16 by Vitalis (Vivaldi/D-Day)
out of Elite Stute Shirlene
(Stedinger/Winterprinz). Vhiognier's sire, Vitalis was the first reserve champion of the
MRW stallion licensing in 2009. As a foal in Holland, Vitalis won
the Dutch Foal Championships. He had very high dressage
scores at his stallion test in 2010 in Warendorf— being the
highest scored stallion in the dressage phase with 129.7 points.
He did well in the Dutch championships and in the World
Dressage Championships for 5 year olds in 2012. He was sold to
an American who competed him at the US Dressage
Championships as a 6 year old, winning with a high margin and
scores of 10.0 for trot and 9.8 for canter. He is now owned by
Shockemohle Stables and is competed successfully up to
Intermediare I. Vhiognier's dam, Elite Stute Shirlene was designated an Elite
Stute (mare) by the GOV in 2015 on the basis of her outstanding
produce record. Shirlene was presented to the GOV on August 6,
2009. She was entered into their main mare book with a score of
7.16. She received 8's for the trot and general impression, and
neck- very high scores for the GOV. She is sired by the famous
Stedinger and out of a mare by Winterprinz, who achieved FEI
results being trained solely by his amateur owner rider. She was
a very successful broodmare at Rolling Stone Farm.
Vhiognier is beautiful, with
correct conformation and
very good movement in all
three gaits. He has a
good disposition with a willing
rideability.

Warmblood breeder for 40 years. Owner of large Oldenburg (GOV) and Hanoverian breeding farm in eastern PA. Young, well started dressage horses and occasional hunter prospects always available. We have produced 37 Elite Mares and Elite Mare Candidates, and a State Premium Mare for the Hanoverian Society, 22 Special Premium mares and 8 Verbands Premium mares for the German Oldenburg Verband, and 9 licensed stallions, including the fully licensed and approved stallion named Shakespeare RSF (winner of the 2009 70 day stallion test), a licensed stallion named Somer Hit, 3 licensed stallions in 2012 (one from the first foal crop of Shakespeare RSF- Shotgun, also Dheputy and a stallion in Germany), Fhitzgerald and Sir James (both imported from Germany and successfully completed the 70 day stallion test here in the US), another licensed stallion in 2014 named Shavane- the second licensed Shakespeare RSF son who is out of homebred EM Rheporter (Royal Prince/Weltmeyer). In 2015 another Shakespeare son was licensed- Shortstop, who was Grand Champion at a USDF breed show in 2015. We have bred two top 5 FEI Young Horse National Champions and multiple HOY winners in hand and in dressage, and four winners of the Young Hunters Under Saddle at Hunter Devon. We stand 5 stallions: Shakespeare RSF (Sandro Hit/Arrian), Fhitzgerald (Florencio/Weltmeyer), Sir James (Sir Donnerhall/Feiner Stern), Dheputy (Dauphin/Rotspon) and Shavane (Shakespeare RSF/Royal Prince). Mo estimates she has bred about 400 foals to date and she also sells young stock and about 20-25 riding horses a year. Some of her horses are fourth and fifth generation from her own breeding program. Mo started out in hunters and jumpers and then rode dressage up to the PSG level, not competing much due to family and farm commitments. She finally received her USDF Bronze and Silver medals in 2018. Her homebred Hanoverians and Oldenburgs have been top ten in national dressage rankings and have won many under saddle and in hand classes at many shows such as Dressage at Devon, NEDA and the hunter show at Devon. She has produced numerous champions and reserve champions at many in hand shows and has been in the top 8 ranking for USDF Dressage Breeder of the Year since 2013. She was the 2016 and 2018 USDF Dressage Sport Horse Breeding Breeder of the Year and has been in the top 7 since 2013. She has been the USEF Dressage Breeder of the Year every year since 2014 and was 2nd in that category from 2011-2013. She has been in the top 4 for the USEF Dressage Sport Horse Breeder of the Year since 2013. Over her years in warmblood breeding she has produced 37 Elite Mares and Elite Mare Candidates and two State Premium Mares for the Hanoverian Society, along with 26 Special Premium mares, 13 Verbands Premium mares, 179 Premium Foals and 48 Foals of Distinction for the German Oldenburg Verband, plus 9 licensed stallions. Her greatest pleasure has been breeding suitable horses for the amateur market in the disciplines of dressage with an emphasis on rideability and movement.
