Stedinger was the undisputed Young Stallion Champion of the Oldenburger licensing in 2002 and runner-up at the main premium award in 2004. He is licensed for Oldenburg and approved for Hanoverian breeding. He is WFFS negative and Homozygous for black.
After victories in many dressage tests at the 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-day test in Neustadt/Dosse.
He finished the performance test with a total index of 131 (dressage 130.72 / jumping 121.92). In 2005 he 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 rideability and willingness to please his rider that allowed for such success with Gina onboard.
