Rubinstein (Grandsire), is one of the most popular and influential dressage sires the world has ever known. Gestüt Vorwerk acquired the young stallion from his breeder Herbert de Baey and he became an instant success in the breeding shed as well as the show ring. In competition the lovely black stallion with the golden temperament had over 40 wins in the Grand Prix ring. Carrying the bloodlines of Rosenkavalier and Romadour II on his sire's side and his dam was Antine a full sister to Dr. Reiner Klimke¹s great Alerich, Rubinstein was destine to be a great sire. In his lifetime he sired 89 State Premium mares and an astonishing 66 approved sons. His sons and daughters are carrying on his legacy today.
Furioso II (Dam Sire), was an Anglo-Norman stallion that first came to Germany in the late 60's to add refinement to the heavier horses of the time. He stood at Gestüt Vorwerk's and had an incredible influence on the modernization of the European Sporthorse. The blood of Furioso II can be found in just about all the major warmblood breeds in the world today.
Inschallah (Grand Dam Sire) The move to ever modernize and refine the sport horses of Europe continued with the Anglo-Arab stallion Inschallah. Brought to Oldenburg in 1972 by Georg Vorweck to stand at his famous stud the lovely gray was known for his "enormous gaits and suburb elasticity". By the time he died in 1990 he had sired over 30 approved sons, 80+ States Premium daughters and several offspring who achieved Olympic fame. One of his greatest qualities was that he was not a specialist but sired dressage talent equally with jumping talent.
