Celebrate North American Stallions: Orbetello


Internationally successful showjumper who passes his jumping talent to his offspring

Orlando x Landgraf I

Orbetello was bred by one of Germany’s historically great breeders, Georg Clausen. Orbetello is a German-approved Oldenburg stallion who took the highest score in history for free jumping at his approval test in Europe. He combines brains, beauty, bloodlines, technique and a good 1m60 record with 3 top riders.

Orbetello is owned by Cynthia Hampton of Hampton Farms, LLC. He competed with top-level performances in the 1.50m and 1.60m Grand Prix. Orbetello’s superior performances under different riders during his highly successful career speak well of his willing temperament and exemplary rideability.

Orbetello stands at Bridlewood Farm, in Union, Kentucky. Bridlewood Farm is the base for Barbara Schmidt, DVM’s equine veterinary practice. Dr. Schmidt brings over 35 years of knowledge to breeders, not only through her equine veterinary experience but through years of travel to Germany and carefully developing her own breeding program.

Bridlewood Farm stands their own Dacaprio, as well as resident stallions Orbetello; Leatherdale Farms’ E. H. Herzensdieb, Fairbanks, First Dance and Hampton; and the Welsh Pony stallion *Telynau Royal Charter, owned by Missy Jo Hollingsworth of Saddle Lake Equestrian Center.
