Sovereignty, a 5 yr old German Oldenburger by Sondheim OLD out of Love Quest, schools with Mark Farndale before heading up to the Sacramento International Horse Show for the 5 Yr Old Jumper Finals.
Owned and bred by Carrie Treadway and ridden by Ashley Barrett, Sovereignty WON last year’s 4 Yr Old Jumper Finals at the same show. As Sondheim is by Sandro Hit, the jumper breeding comes through from Sandro, as well as the mare line. Love Quest is a Landadel / Quattro jumper mare from the Oldenburger Elite Auktion.
It’s interesting to see that Sondheim produces BOTH competitive dressage and jumper foals!
Congratulations Marta F. Kauffman and Santana!!
I just found out (I know, sometimes I’m slow) that at the L. A. Chapter Summer Dressage Show recently, Santana (Show Star – Donnerschwee) finished the show as FEI Reserve Champion! This was based on his 2 day successes at Prix St. Georges… Ridden by Jaye Cherry, Santana was purchased as a 3 yr old at the German Oldenburger Mixed Auktion, and over the years has had much success – it’s great to see he’s back at it again!!!
At the prestigious Flintridge Dressage Show 2019, over the Memorial Day Weekend, once again breeder Hilda Gurney and owner / rider Adrienne Bessey showed what a great partnership they have – Adrienne showed her 4 year old German Oldenburger mare Stunning (Sondheim OLD – Winterprinz) in Training Level classes… and WON THEM ALL!!
It is a PLEASURE to watch Hilda and Adrienne work together with such great success – I can’t wait to watch the future of this threesome!!
I will hold a GOV Mare and Foal Inspection this August 9, 2019, at the Los Angeles Equestrian Center in Burbank.

Congratulations to breeder Hilda Gurney and owner Adrienne Bessey, on the successful first show for Stunning (Sondheim OLD – Winter Prinz).
At the Dressage Affaire CDI*** held this last weekend (Mar. 21 – 24, 2019) held at the Los Angeles Equestrian Center (Burbank, Ca), Stunning won her Training Level classes with scores into the 70%!!
Ridden by Adrienne, she and Stunning were also the High Score Lower Level Amateur of the show!
This being their very FIRST show, Adrienne and her trainer Hilda did a wonderful job helping this 4 year old German Oldenburger mare navigate the ‘ins and outs’ of a facility that she’d never been to, combined with quite a chilly and breezy first day!
The future is certainly bright for this lovely pair…
