Zuchthof Wadenspanner – For new-born foals only the best!

Zuchthof Wadenspanner, a family business in Rottenburg – Pattendorf in Germany, was founded on the former grounds of a brewery.

The cornerstone for a successful horse breeding operation was laid by Walter Wadenspanner, senior with his passion for horses. The stud farm was founded in 1984 and expanded to an EU insemination station. Today Zuchthof Wadenspanner is run in the second generation by Walter Wadenspanner, junior with his wife Johanna Wadenspanner and his mother Maria Wadenspanner. A great team supports the Wadenspanner family in daily life.

The company became well-known both nationally and internationally through the breeding stallion Piaster, the father of many successful dressage horses and jumpers, as well as the breeding stallion and German national champion Pink Floyd. The stallion Uneé, which was internationally successful with Jessica von Bredow-Werndl, also began its career at Zuchthof Wadenspanner.

The focus was initially on the breeding business and the subsequent marketing of the foals. Today as well, the breeding business is still current, however the range of services has increased.

The insemination station recognised in the EU can assume mare management and the insemination of mares with station or other breeding stallions. A foaling service is offered, as well as the rearing of the offspring. Training of the horses can also be placed in the trustworthy hands of the Wadenspanner family.
Zuchthof Wadenspanner offers the training and riding of dressage horses up into the heavy class. From warming up, presentation at tournaments, the mare performance test or approval, the complete all-round package is available here. In addition, the Wadenspanner family also offers the negotiation of foals or trained riding horses.

Breeding and training of young horses plays a major role here. The Wadenspanner family has meanwhile been in the breeding business for 40 years and places great importance on horse husbandry appropriate to the species. Participants in the Olympics, European championships, licensing champions, German national champions, Grand Prix dressage and S jumpers, outstanding breeding horses as well as horses for leisure sport have spent their lives here.

We are very happy and express our thanks to the Wadenspanner family for being allowed to equip the new, spacious breeding stable with our hinged partitions, feeding grates and paddock grates from Röwer & Rüb.

This breeding stable offers the horses year-round outdoor access, generous pastures, plenty of space and a fantastic quality of life. Here foals can first and foremost be horses.
