At the end of November, the five year contract beteween the Peterhof stud farm and Dorothee Schneider will expire.
“Dorothee Schneider did a great job at our stud farm. At the same time we know that the long drive between her own business and ours as well as her participation at events is time-consuming,” Arlette Jasper-Kohl and Prof. Edwin Kohl said. For the training of the best horses at the Peterhof stud farm Dorothee Schneider drove from her home stable St. Stephan in Framersheim to 200km distant Perl-Borg, where Arlette Jasper-Kohl and her husband Prof. Edwin Kohl not only realised their life’s dream but one of the most beautiful yards in existance.
The expiring contract also means Dorothee Schneider will no longer train triple dressage horse world champion Sezuan. At the end of 2013, Dorothee Schneider took over the education of the jet black Zack son, who had started a stellar career after his stallion licensing in Denmark in 2012. In 2014, after his record breaking stallion performance test and the victory in the stallion licensing as well as the victory in the Danish dressage horse championship, he and Dorothee Schneider won the world championship of the five-year old dressage horses. In Verden the fantastic result was 9,76, In 2015 and 2016 he achieved an as yet unheard record: he defended the world champion title and became world champion of the six-year-old and seven-year-old dressage horses. In 2017, aged eight, Sezuan won international competitions at S level up to Inter I with more than 80 percent.
The co-operation between Dorothee Schneider and the Peterhof stud farm was even more successful: the Peterhof stud Silvano achieved placements in competitions like the World Cup Freestyle in Lyon, Wiesbaden, Mannheim, Doha, Graz and Perl-Borg.
“We will weigh all the options concerning Sezuan’s further career in a calm and calculated manner,” Arlette Jasper-Kohl and Prof. Edwin Kohl emphasised. “Saying goodbye to the Peterhof stud farm and to Sezuan is not easy,” Dorothee Schneider said, “but I am all the more grateful for our time together and the trust placed in me.”
