Foals by Ogano and For Dance became champions +++ Stallions were presented in front of thousands of guests +++ Bernadette Brune showed Grand Prix dressage and groundwork
Thousands of people came to the Sosath stud on Easter Saturday to visit the annual Open Day. There was a big exhibition, a great programme around horses and the 9th foal championships with a presentation of the well-known stallions.
The families were enthusiastic about the shows in the indoor arena. 20 Children competed in the pony games, shetland pony "Joschi" showed circus lections and Lina Engelken played frisbee with her dog. Volker Wulff, organizer of big horse events worldwide, picked the winning kindergarten who received a wooden horse sponsored by Gerd Sosath.
In the afternoon, it became interesting for the horse breeders. The rather young offspring of Sosath's stallions were competing at the 9th Lemwerderaner foal championships. The judges, Heinrich Ramsbrock, Egbert Schep and Dr. Axel Brockmann, saw very talented and beautiful foals of different pedigrees.
The colt number 16 by Ogano - Lordanos - Continue, bred by Siegfried Rempe, became jumping champion. The runner-up was number 10, a colt by Diamant de Plaisir - Argentinus - Grannus, bred by Heike and Tjeerd Hoekstra. Placed third was number 13, a colt by Diamant de Plaisir - Satisfaction II - Lordanos, bred by Bettina and Jens Belz.
In the dressage championships number 26, a colt by For Dance - Stedinger - Concetto, bred by Harm Oncken, won. The runner-up was number 27, a colt by For Dance - Stedinger - Landor S, bred by Josef Freese. Placed third was number 21, a colt by Devonport - Detroit - Carry Gold, bred by Lothar Urowski.
In between the foal championships the Sosath-stallions were presented. The guests were impressed by the age-appropriate training of the youngsters. The well-known stallions Ogano, Casalido, Casino Grande and Comme Prévu showed their talent over the jumps. The dressage stallions Adoro, Devonport, For Dance, Florenz and Honoré du Soir presented their amazing movements in a great performance.
Beside the programme in the indoor arena, there was a great exhibition with various stands. More than 50 exhibitors presented their goods, like sculptures, wooden work, jewellery and argricultural engines. The guests could look at the work of a blacksmith, two veterinarians and a horse-physiotherapist. Michael Dierks showed the Equusir-Best-Box, a therapy by light frequencies.
There was a kids corner with pony rides and a little petting zoo with different animals. The nearly 100 years old carrousel with horses was a special highlight for the youngest guests.
