Now retired as a breeding stallion Platinum vom Rappenhof is once again proving himself to be a Champion. He consistantly produces carbon copy foals with his outstanding head and neck and tall and typy confirmation. His foals have been Oldenburg and Trakenher High Scoring and First Premium foals. He has produced Inspection site Champions, Halter Champions and now his first foal crops are going on to prove themselves to be outstanding competitors as Hunter, Dressage horses and 3 Day Eventors.
See our Offspring page for more information on Platy foals which are mostly black, tall, typey, athletic with ground covering, cadenced movements and outstanding jumping form. They also share Platy's versatility. To name just a few: Boogie Man was 2008 high score Oldenburg colt in California, Joie de Vive finished 2nd in the Dressage Suitability under owner Debbie Popolizio (Tehachapi, CA) of the 2008 ATA Convention Show, Burbank California. Koeura with breeder/owner Marcy Laframboise (Windsor ON) is multiple champion in breed classes, dressage and hunter shows. Jade vom Rappenhof was first successful in hand at Blainville Sporthorse Breeders Show for us, then won a Vermont regional dressage championship under owner Kat Olbrych at First Level at age three years old. Canta Su Esperanza was a winner at Provincial championships in dressage under her first owner, then won as Intricate Design on the 'A' Hunter circuit with her second owner and moved on to become a showjumper. And there are many more in training at major show barns throughout North America waiting for their chance.
Platinum vom Rappenhof is well on the way to becoming an Elite Stallion himself having now produced an Approved Stallion son and an ATA Model Mare. A hallmark of all of Platinum's offspring is their calm, trainable and Amatuer friendly dispositions that is so sought after by breeders, buyers and riders today.
