Orbetello

Internationally successful showjumper who passes his jumping talent, easy temperament, and beautiful gaits to his offspring
“Orbetello is the most intelligent horse I have ever met. He enjoys his work. This is my horse of a lifetime.” - Cynthia Hampton, Hampton Farms LLC, Owner

Orbetello’s strong pedigree endowed him with the inherent qualities necessary to perform at the top level of the sport of showjumping. His sire is the BWP Ambassador stallion Orlando. Orlando is known not only in the showjumping arena but for producing excellent jumpers and breed show champions. Also prominent in Orbetello’s sire line is the famous Heartbreaker, a Keur stallion who has produced numerous offspring jumping at the upper levels as well as several approved sons including the 2006 Belgian Stallion Selection Champion Dulf Van Den Bisschop. Heartbreaker is one of the leading stallions on the Dutch and Belgian jumping indexes.

Orbetello’s damline is no less impressive. He is out of the Holsteiner mare Landkind who descends from Landgraf I by the legendary Ladykiller xx. Ladykiller is known as the most influential Thoroughbred stallion in the history of German sporthorse/showjumping breeding and was the founder of the Holsteiner L-line. Landgraf I is symbolized as the modern Holsteiner Sport Horse and performance sire.

Orbetello’s Show Career

Orbetello maintained top-level performance since the inception of his showjumping career. During his Oldenburg stallion licensing in Vechta, Germany, he scored the highest free-jumping score to date.

Cynthia Hampton, Hampton Farms, LLC, purchased Orbetello as an 8-year-old from Margie Engle (USA). Orbetello distinguished himself as the WEF circuit Champion in this critical division, winning nearly every qualifier with Engle. Immediately after the circuit, he placed well in his first 1.45m Grand Prix. Orbetello was then shown in amateur jumper classes by Hampton. Realizing his potential, Hampton shifted his training by allowing him to prove himself under three different international riders; Federico Sztyrle who had ridden on the Argentine team, Brianne Goutal who had successfully competed at the Grand Prix level in North America and Europe, and Paul O’Shea (IRL), a noted talent for developing horses. Orbetello’s superior performances under different riders during his highly successful career speak well of his willing temperament and exemplary rideability.

Orbetello competed with top-level performances in the 1.50m and 1.60m Grand Prix. His career was guided by noted riders/trainers as Napinday’s Federio Sztyrle (CSIO for Argentina, 2004) and Chris Evanouski. He finished 3rd in the $10K Hagyard Welcome at the KHJA show in August, 2012.

Orbetello placed 2nd in the very difficult Rood & Riddle Welcome Prix, designed by Steve Stephens, during week one of the 2014 Kentucky Summer Shows. During the 2014 Winter Equestrian Festival, Orbetello finished 2nd & 3rd in 1m40 classes in WEF 12 and 9th in the ESP Spring 3 Nutrena Grand Prix in Wellington.

At Spruce Meadows in 2015, Orbetello placed 3rd in the Husky 1.50m class on May 11th in his new partnership with rider Brianne Goutal. In an exemplary round just .68 seconds off the winning score, the couple set a demonstration of jumping style at its best!

Orbetello, a world-class competitor, is affiliated with the Oldenburg studbook (GOV). At 18 years of age, having successfully competed at the 1.60m level, it is a tribute to his outstanding conformation that he is perfectly sound. Orbetello’s superior performances under different riders during his highly successful career speak well of his willing temperament and exemplary rideability. Orbetello posesses excellent jumping technique and scope, athletic type, and most importantly his uncomplicated temperament. As a sire, he readily passes on these traits to his offspring, making him a wise choice as the sire of your future champions!
