ACE Group Performance Premium Licensed German Riding Pony stallion VITO DIMA (imp).

ACE Group Performance Premium Licensed German Riding Pony stallion VITO DIMA (imp).

Situated near Sydney in the Hills District of NSW, AKL German Riding Ponies is a Boutique Stud, Riding and Training Centre which I established in 2013.

Standing at stud is the Premium Awarded Fully Licensed German Riding stallion Vito Dima (Voyager/FS Champion de Luxe) who combines some of the best German Riding Pony bloodlines available in Germany today.

At AKL I offer a range of services to riders and breeders including coaching riders in dressage and show jumping, specializing in children and young adults, German Riding Pony breeding, boarding and training of performance ponies and fitness training for equestrian athletes.

It began in Germany when I became passionate about the German Riding Pony. I started to learn riding at the age of eight, which then lead to competing in all three disciplines. I later coached young riders having qualified as an Equestrian Coach through the German Equestrian Sport System up to International Equestrian Coach Level 2.

The Pony Competition Scene in Germany is very big and active in all disciplines and the majority of children learn horse riding on performance talented ponies guided step by step by their coaches utilizing the knowledge and understanding of the principles of the German Riding and Training System.

With the German Riding Pony becoming more and more popular in Australia and people taking advantage and breeding their own German Riding Pony I sincerely hope that more children and smaller adults will be able to ride and enjoy these gorgeous and athletic ponies.

Young riders will be able to get a better feel on the pony, learn to sit expressive movement and have a pony that is an athletic partner for their career/goals and dreams in the equestrian sport.

This upcoming breeding season 2015-16 AKL German Riding Ponies offers exclusive bloodlines through the imported Premium Awarded Fully Licensed German Riding Pony Stallion Vito Dima.

After many months of search throughout Germany I stumbled across this young sensational German Riding Pony stallion at the breeding barn of Arno Leufkens. Two months later Vito Dima was trained up at Gestuet Kastanienhof to be presented at the 2010 Rhineland and Westphalia Stud Book Stallion Licensing in Wickrath.

Having been one of the crowds favorites Vito Dima was licensed and achieved a Premium Award at the Stallion Licensing. I decided to import him as my future competition pony and breeding prospect for AKL. In Australia Vito Dima performs with great success in pony dressage being awarded 2014 Preliminary Dressage Pony Champion, 2014 Novice Dressage Pony Champion and 2014 Highest Scoring Pony.

Beginning 2015 Vito Dima was fully performance licensed and achieved a Premium Award at the ACE Group and also the Westphalia Stud Book Performance Pony Stallion Licensing.

I would like to thank the ACE GROUP Assessment and the Westphalia Stud Book Team for their effort and professionalism.

Many thanks to Aaron Quinn for test riding Vito Dima and to Elsa Marchenay for your invaluable support and assistance.

I look forward to present Vito Dima at dressage and show jumping competitions in 2015 and can’t wait to see his first foals being born this coming Spring/Summer.

I wish everyone who is awaiting Vito Dima’s or other German Riding Pony progeny much joy and success.

Vito Dima will be standing at stud via fresh, chilled and frozen semen for the 2015 – 2016 breeding season.

For the first time this year we are standing our stunning young stallion, Bloomers Simply the Best – the last foal from the outstanding TB mare Feathers.  Looking like he will excel in dressage he is by the Oldenburger stallion Sunny Boy (Sandro Hit) and at 4yo has just been out to his first 2 dressage competitions, scoring a 70.4% and a 74.4%.  With a beautiful kind, quiet but willing and trainable temperament, he is set to be a superstar both in the competition world and as a sire.

Bloomers Simply the Best was Preliminary Licensed and awarded Elite status at this years ACE classification tour.  He was awarded 8.5 for both his trot and canter and received 81% in his ridden test, with positive comments on his uphill trot and canter and good, swinging over-tracking walk. 

These marks are matched by his gentle and willing temperament which he has passed on to his first two homebred offspring from this season.  Both these foals were also awarded Elite status at the ACE classification, with Bloomers Solitary Man (Billy) being awarded NSW Champion Colt.

Carrington Lodge is a family owned Performance Horse stud, located in the wonderful Toowoomba region, Queensland.

Peta Fenton-Anderson and John Anderson operate Carrington Lodge and are enthusiastic in their commitment to producing horses suitable for the highest level of competition and are also show-stoppingly beautiful.

Established in 2002, Carrington Lodge is now celebrating over a decade of raising horses on the Darling Downs, the ideal environment for bringing up young performance horses.

Peta has worked with horses all her life –  riding ponies as a young girl, turning out show horses to Grand National level, achieving Sports Star awards, and a previous State Championship Dressage Winner; now with the very handy assistance of John the future direction is firmly set towards breeding outstanding performance horses.

The broodmare band at Carrington Lodge started with hand picked Thoroughbred mares, noted for refinement yet still retaining athleticism and exacting conformation.

This still remains a feature of Carrington Lodge; however, the head broodmares are now boasting bloodlines such as Highhaven Park Welt’s Emperor (Weltmeyer/Salute), Highhaven Park Excalibur (Valuta/Salute) and Furst Grandios (Furst Heinrich/Argentinus).

This season at Carrington Lodge is an exciting progression for the stud with the first crop of foals from stallion, Carrington Lodge Furstenwelt (Furst Grandios/HHP Welt’s Emperor) due to hit the ground in October.

CL Furstenwelt-01

Carrington Lodge Furstenwelt

This exciting young stallion has been previously featured on the ACE website http://acegroup.com.au/brisbane-royal-show-2013/ after consecutive victories at the Queensland Royal Show and being awarded Supreme Exhibit.

This ACE PREMIUM stallion’s full performance history and information can be found at http://carringtonlodge.com.au/cl-furstenwelt/

Furstenwelt is offered at public stud for the first time this season and is proving to be a popular choice; only limited places are offered for new outside mares.

The sensational young stallion, Royal Classic, has been chosen as the horse to progress the breeding of Carrington Lodge this season and there are high hopes for successful pregnancies with the HHP Welt’s Emperor broodmares.

Youngstock at Carrington Lodge, are potentially the most successfully placed horses at Queensland Royal and Agricultural shows over the past 5 years, with multiple Supremes and Champions being awarded to horses from yearlings to mature horses.

Carrington Lodge Welt's Sateen

An absolute highlight is being twice awarded Champion Stallion at Toowoomba and Brisbane Royal over consecutive years, and taking out the Best 2 year old exhibit multiple times.

Performance horses bred by Carrington Lodge continue to impress their owners all across country. Carrington Lodge horses have had success in Dressage, Showing, Showjumping, Eventing; but most notably have exceptional temperaments for all grades of riders, and have the athletic ability to suit those with the highest ambitions.

Peta and John have done well to ensure the longevity of the stud, with the next generation of little riders. Jay 7, Jordon 5, and Paige 1 have an almost guaranteed chance of success in the horse industry.

They do their part to make sure all the horses are as quiet as possible, from riding the 17hh warmbloods at horse shows, to sharing their love and attention at home ensuring the horses are accepting of all things great and small!

Having a look through the pages of http://www.carringtonlodge.com.au will showcase these horses for their beauty, conformation, movement and their achievements to date.

GrandView is a small stud situated on 35 acres located in the Adelaide Hills, South Australia. It is owned and run by Janeth and Peter Flowers who are dedicated to producing well handled young stock, thus providing purchasers the assurance that the horses leave for their new homes with established ground work, enabling them to mature into well balanced individuals.

Carbine has produced some very beautiful dressage and show horses but is also making his mark as the sire of eventers. Carbines progeny have been noted to very bold and fast cross country and catch the eye of the judge in the dressage phase.

Fox in Sox is just starting his ridden career and will pursue a career as an eventer. He demonstrates a calm, sensible and accepting ethic to his work. Fox in Sox’s first foals are eagerly awaited in October 2013.

Grandview Sport Horses are delighted to be in partnership with Solaris Sport Horses Limited (UK) and are the Australian agent for the remarkably beautiful and talented perlino Akhal Teke stallion, Kambarbay and the proven performance KWPN registered, chestnut tobiano Dutch Warmblood stallion, Umenno.

Notably he is sire of the 2013 French National Junior Event Champion 2013 “Bequinna” aged seven and her full sister Aquenna who is reserve for the Scottish Junior Show Jumping Team aged eight.
