Julianna RSF4 News

Second Foal of 2019 ~ Julianna RSF (Vitalis x Freestyle)

May 8th, 2019

Julianna is the sweetest foal we’ve had yet. When I went out to check on Grace, she was already standing and spotted me. Instantly she headed over to greet me! To this day, she still loves to meet and greet everyone!

Julianna’s sire, Vitalis, is regarded as one of the best progenitors of dressage horses in the world. Vitalis was Reserve Champion at his licensing in Westphalia, in 2009, thus becoming the first licensed son of Vivaldi. As a foal in Holland, Vitalis won the Dutch Foal Championships.

Vitalis is already ranked No. 16 on the German dressage index with an index of 157, based on only 2 foal crops!
