Stallion Voltaire




Voltaire, one of the most influential Hanoverian    show jumping sires of the present day, is the result of crossing two outstanding bloodlines: Furioso II and Gotthard

As an 8 year old, Voltaire jumped 1.50 m. courses with a great deal of success.

He showed his strength in International jumping in 1988 in Calgary, Stockholm, Lanaken, Helsinki, Wiesbaden and Wembley and in 1989 he brought his show jumping career to a successful ending by winning the Grand Prix of Berlin with Jos Lansink and second in the Grand Prix of Leeuwar.

Voltaire was the sire of the most offspring at the Olympic Games of Atlanta in 1996.

Moreover, the world famous Voltaire was second in 1999 on the World Breeding Rankings of Showj umping Sires. Voltaire has over 30 approved sons in Europe. Many of his offspring jump at Grand Prix level such as Concorde, Finesse, Altaire, Kahlua, Play it Again, Helios, Electro, Danta and Especial to name but  a few. Foltaire ridden by Gunther Seidel is a famous offspring of Voltaire in the International dressage ring
