Oldenburg Stallion Furioso II




Furioso II was imported to Germany by the Oldenburg breeder, George Vorwerk .

Furioso II was out of the great mare, Dame de Renville, who produced a series of wonderful horses when mated with Furioso.

He was interesting to the Oldenburg breeders as they needed a half-blood stallion to help make the transformation of their mares to more modern lines, without too much direct Thoroughbred blood.

He was approved for the Oldenburg studbook in 1967, and then went on to easily win his 100 day test. Later he was approved for Hannover, Rhineland, Hessen and Westfalia. For many years, Furioso II was ranked in the top three sires of leading money winners in Germany. He had winners in all disciplines. His show jumping stars included: FBI (with Thomas Frühmann) , Heissman (ridden by Eric Van Der Vleuten, then Michael Matz) and For Pleasure.

Perhaps Furioso II’s most influential son is Voltaire , out of a mare by another classic sire of jumping horses, Gotthard. Voltaire is the sire of 33 approved sons and top jumpers like Finesse and Altaire.

Furioso II died in 1986 having sired 81 approved sons.
