Born in 1993, INBEGRIFF (which in German means Perfect Example) stands 16.3. This true black Oldenburg Stallion scored 8.5 and was awarded Premium Foal Status at his foal inspection. he is full brother to the Champion Premium mare, ISABEAU.

INBEGRIFF is by the German bred, Branded and Approved Oldenburg Star Stallion, IDEAL out of a Premium Rated BOLD RULLER xx Granddaughter - TODAY'S BEST- who scored 7.6 at her inspection with 9's on head, frame and top line! 

In August of 1998 INBEGRIFF was approved by the Oldenburg Horse Breeders Society with the stipulation that he attend the next 100 Day Stallion Testing.

To the left is a picture of INBEGRIFF being prepared for the 100 Day Stallion Test being taken over jumps by Paul Savelsbergh  well known Oregon competitor and trainer. Paul is a protégé of International Rider Rich Fellers.

Early in his jumping training, here at the Ultimate Piaffe, INBEGRIFF displayed much of the same enthusiasm for jumping as did IDEAL who received 9's on jumping at his 100 Day Test


Sandy Howard, three time USET Rider and S rated Judge and then Ultimate Piaffe Clinician, worked with Michelle and Darrel on a regime to polish INBEGRIFF'S dressage technique prior to sending him off to California for the 100 Day Test. All were satisfied with his progress and agreed that our boy was ready, willing and able to take on the challenge. You can imagine our surprise and disappointment when circumstances developed which made it impossible for INBEGRIFF to complete the 100 Day Test. The full story is detailed below.


Many of you know that INBEGRIFF went to Rancho Murieta to participate in the 100 day Stallion Performance Testing.  It is literally 100 days of grueling training and conditioning in stadium jumping, cross country jumping, galloping and basic gaits.  The 100 Day Performance Test gives mare owners information on character, rideability, jumping ability and basic gaits on young stallions.  Stallion owners, who support the system send off their valuable horses, spend thousands of dollars and really believe that the information can help mare owners.  It is very difficult and there is always a chance that an injury or illness will rob you of your horse.  Anyone who sends their stallions understands the risks and danger.

INBEGRIFF completed the full 100-Day training period but due to an injury he was unable to attend all of the training program or participate in the final three days of the 2000 Test. Ekkehard Brysch of the ISR Oldenburg N.A. registry who went to bat to make it possible for INBEGRIFF to be accepted into the Rheinland Pfalz-Sarr International Registry, issued a statement saying ..."in fairness to the stallion no training scores were given or released for him. Brysch also wrote ..."INBEGRIFF" had times he performed well, especially in jumping." 

Upon return to Oregon after the 100 Day Test a series of x-rays revealed a small but problematical fracture in a bone in his foot. Veterinary Specialists have concluded there are no congenital or hereditary concerns. But, this injury precluded INBEGRIFF having the opportunity to participate in any further 100 Day Stallion Tests or alternative evaluation.

Taking all of the facts into consideration and based on information provided by the ISR Oldenburg of N.A. registry from the 100 Day Testing and other criteria, The Rheinland Pflaz-Saar International  has decided  to Approve INBEGRIFF as a fully approved Breeding Stallion in their registry.  We are deeply grateful to the cooperation by the two prestigious  organizations which  made this possible.

INBEGRIFF was formally presented to Otto Schalter and other officials of the Registry on September 27th at The Ultimate Piaffe. (Also  presented was INBEGRIFF'S Sire, IDEAL who was also be entered into the R.P.S.I. Registry.



INBEGRIFF is a wonderful improvement sire and a gifted athlete with excellent dressage movement and jumping ability. (See pictures below.)  He has produced some exceptional offspring.   

 I'M LEGIT,  a colt out of CATINKA one of The Ultimate Piaffe's 3 Star imported mares, is sensational.  The Hanoverian mare is by the Trakehner Consul and out of Werona by Werther.  CATINKA is a full sister to the dam of the stallion Regazzoni standing in Germany and owned by Ingo Pape. I'M LEGIT (Guinness) received an 8.5 Gold Premium Award in 2002 and placed 2nd in North America for the R.P.S.I.

Karin Hunt of Shadysprings Farm of Portland, Oregon, has bred three fillies by INBEGRIFF including  INTERMEZZO and ILLUSIVE which are out of Valkarie, a Dutch Warmblood mare.  Both of the fillies received premium status with the R.P.S.I. in 2002 and 2003.  


ILLUSIVE, (above) a Gold Premium 2003 filly, placed in the top 5 fillies in North America for 2003 for the R.P.S.I.

INBEGRIFF has several registered offspring on the ground. INTUITION a black filly and ILLUSIONS, a  black gelding both bred by Karin Hunt of Shadysprings Farm Portland, Oregon.  And ISABELLE a  bay filly bred by Dorthy Sahlfeld of Hillsboro, Oregon. In addition, INBEGRIFF has TORNADO a black gelding owned by Karen Strobel of Arkport, New York.


INTUITION the exquisite 1998 black Oldenburg cross filly, INTUITION, was presented to the German Oldenburg's inspector, Evelyn Vollstedt, in the summer of 1999. Evelyn was extremely impressed with INTUITION'S enormous, elastic gaits and ground covering strides as well as her lovely type and excellent health.

INTUITION is out of a Tennessee Walking horse mare who doesn't "walk". RAVEN was herself a successful hunter/jumper and produced a successful dressage horse, IDLE GOSSIP by IDEAL (INBEGRIFF'S sire).

INTUITION'S first time out was at the Letter Perfect Dressage Show Ridgefield, Washington. (4th of July Weekend.) INTUITION won the Three Year Old Filly Championship, Won the Brood Mare Championship, was second in the Three Year Old Oldenburg Breed Class and Won the Three Year Old Fillies Material Class. See Blue Ribbon Roundup   

ILLUSIONS, the 1998 black sibling of INTUITION, has matured into a big, classy, athletic boy.  Karin sold ILLUSIONS to Evelyn Morley and he is now in training with Darrel Purdy of the Ultimate Piaffe. ILLUSIONS will be shown in Dressage by Darrel in 2004.   ILLUSIONS (Kahu) had a shot as a "producer" quite by accident as a two year old in the pasture.  OOPPS was the resulting offspring.

OPPPPPS! Is the nick name of a marvelous filly owned by Karin Hunt of Shadysprings Farm in Portland. The 'unplanned' filly is a result of  ILLUSIONS getting together with one Karin's two year old mares. When she was presented, at four weeks to Evelyn Vollstedt at the Oldenburg Breeder's Society for a birth certificate, the inspector exclaimed, "She is the best mover presented here today. I wouldn't mind having a foal like this even if she can't have papers." By the way, the fillies real name is Isla Marada. Photos by Scarlett
