Valais OWF descends from the very successful and loved stallion, Vitalis, who is a 2007, 16’3h liver chestnut stallion by Vivaldi. Vitalis has 33 licensed sons and numerous premium mares, including Victoria’s Secret who won the 2016 World Championships, and Ermelo who won the German Championships the prior year. Vitalis' foals have sold for top prices in Europe and are much sought after. As a foal, Vitalis earned Champion in the Netherlands 2007. He then earned Reserve Champion of the NRW licensing in 2009 and won the dressage index of his Stallion Performance Test in 2010. Vitalis competed twice at the World Championships, competed at the Pavo Cup final in 2012 and at only seven years of age, was victorious at the International Small Tour in 2014. Vitalis is licensed: KWPN, Rhineland, Westfalen, Oldenburg, Hanoverian Verband, all South German registries, and Bavarian.

Valais OWF, dam sire Don Primaire, hails from the Donnerhall line. Most of today’s sport horses can be traced back to the extraordinary and successful Donnerhall Stallion. Don Primaire, a 1992, dark bay, German Oldenburg stallion, who at his 100 day test at Medingen, finished in the top ten with a score of 113.47 points. He earned the second highest score of 138.19 for the dressage portion. Don Primaire is approved for: KWPN, Oldenburg with Nathalie Smeets (NLD). Don Primaire has two licensed sons and five State Premium mares.Valais OWF is a German Oldenburg gelding, currently 16’3h, dark bay, gelding. At his inspection the summer of 2017, Valais OWF was awarded Premium Foal, Foal of Distinction, and Stallion Prospect. Steamboat Creek Farm acquired Valais OWF when he just just a few days old. We were very interested in the colt due to his exemplary lines and our knowledge of his sire Vitalis.  This gelding is very personable and has quite a sweet disposition. While he has it in him to get excited, he is quick to settle down and think. He is not nervous or spooky, but is brave and curious. Valais is a gentleman. He is great to bathe, good for the farrier, the veterinarian, loading, and trailering. He loves the grooming process and is always quick to come to the gate for his work. Having been lightly started fall of 2019, he learned to lunge off the halter and then the bridle, wearing a surcingle and then a saddle.  He was given the balance of fall 2019 and winter 2020 off. We plan on reintroducing Valais to his basics in the Spring of 2020 and then he will be backed. Valais has shown himself to have a lovely expression in his movement, along with wonderful impulsion and rhythm. We are very excited to see what the future holds for this talented young horse.
