Three times the 10!
"The stallion walks almost arrogantly," the jury commented on their "feeling of the fence" at the Bundeschampionat final performance of our Vitalo. At the trot "tactful, even and swinging through the body and that from the first trot step" - 10! In canter "enormously uphill, jumping far under, with great freedom of shoulder and from the side picture one canter jump like the other, also in the corners and on both hands" - 10! In walk "well forward from the shoulder, in the hindquarters just as diligent as in the entire sequence, pulling forward, in a completely clear four beat" - 9.0! The contact was so precise, "it doesn't get any better with a four-year-old horse", which was also confirmed by the outside rider - 10! And the "typey, masculine build" rounded off the overall picture very well - 9.0! With an overall score of 9.6, Vitalos won gold in the classification of four-year-old stallions under his trainer Leonie Richter, as he had done earlier at the Hanoverian Championships in Verden. He completed his stallion performance test in Denmark as the winner of his age class, also receiving a dream score of 10.

The dam's sire De Niro, himself already successful in the Grand Prix class as an eight-year-old and winner of the Hamburg Dressage Derby under riding master Dolf-Dietram Keller, led the WBFSH ranking of the best dressage sires worldwide for six consecutive years.There was no championship in which his offspring, including Desperados FRH/Kristina Bröring-Sprehe, Dablino/Anabel Balkenhol, D'Agostino FRH/Fabienne Müller-Lütkemeier, Delgado/Beatriz Ferrer-Salat/ESP, Voice/Edward Gal/NED and Deep Impact/Severo Jurado Lopez/ESP, Darco of De Niro ZS CH/Charlotte Lenherr/SUI did not compete for medals.
