After victories in many dressage tests at medium (M) level, he was trained by Dieter Weichert for the next level in dressage. In spite of a heavy breeding load, Stedinger did an outstanding job at his 70-days test in Neustadt/Dosse.
He finished the performance test with a total index of 131 (dressage 130.72 / jumping 121.92). In 2005 he was qualified for the “Bundeschampionate” of dressage horses in Warendorf.
Unfortunately the recurrence of an old injury prevented him from continuing onto Grand Prix but Stedinger had shown in training that he had the mental capability to go all the way to the top of the sport. It was his undeniable ride-ability and willingness to please his rider that allowed for such success with Gina onboard.
Stedinger’s most notable performance offspring to date include;
• Status Quo, the 2006 Oldenburg Licensing Champion;
• Socrate de Hus, the French National Champion of 5yr olds (2009), 6yrs (2010) and 7yrs (2011);
• Santorini, the Bundeschampion 4yo Riding Horse, Westphalian Champion, Bundeschampionate Runner-Up and
World Championships Bronze Medallion winner;
• Statesman, the bronze medallion Bundeschampionate winner;
• Torveslettens Stamina, the Danish Champion;
• Santiago, winner of the prestigious Nurnberger Burg-Pokal (Small Tour); and
• Spirit of the Age, proudly owned by Bernadette Brune, is successful at international Grand Prix and was a
member of the Nations Cup Team for Germany at Aachen in 2016.
