Berkeley W is a statuesque Oldenburg stallion who was bred, trained and competed successfully to Grand Prix by Wolfram Wittig. His flawless temperament and striking looks add to the package of proven competitor and successful bloodlines.
Breitling, Berkeley's father, is currently number one in the German breeding index and is known for producing quality yet trainable offspring who include several licensed sons such as Benvenuto, our own Baron de Ley and Baron’s full brother Bertoli. He has also fathered many hugely successful competition horses such as Balderassini, Biagotti, Brioni and Blind Date. For further information please see Breitling’s page in our Sires section.
Berkeley’s mother is by Fabriano who was the winner of his performance test with excellent scores in both dressage and jumping. He possesses rhythmical, flowing movements. He was also awarded high marks for rideability at test, demonstrating a pleasing and uncomplicated temperament. In addition to the great stallions Ferdinand and Absatz in the third generation, Fabriano also goes back to Augustinus xx and Steppenwolf, known for their ability and willingness to perform. German performance horse breeding has always returned to the Thoroughbred for soundness, quality and athleticism, and it is here that we find Vollkorn in Berkeley’s pedigree. Vollkorn stood as a sport horse sire for 16 seasons producing 13 licensed sons, licensing champions, Olympic medallists and numerous Grand Prix horses.
