Bernwode Britvik
German colt

Born 5/6/07
Bernwode Brokat X Bernwode Dorina

Registered with the Sports Pony Studbook Society (SPSS) UK

 

This colt is an exciting prospect as a sports pony carrying some of the most successful German bloodlines. Britvik offers excellent conformation, movement and has great presence.

 

Britvik was presented at the 2007 British Breeding Futurity and was awarded a First Premium with the excellent score of 8.5.  Contributing to this were an outstanding 9.5 veterinary mark and 9.0 for conformation.

 

Britvik was sold in 2007 and in 2009, his new owners took him to the last of the 2009 Futurity Evaluations, at Plumpton College.  Britvik looked absolutely fantastic and performed brilliantly to be awarded ELITE Premium, Champion Sports Pony and Champion 2 year old overall.  Very few Elite Premiums are awarded each year as they are only given to youngstock that the evaluators feel have real international potential.  Overall, Britvik was the 5th equal scoring 2 year old throughout the Evaluations which included a total of 183 sports horses and ponies - an outstanding achievement for this quality colt by Bernwode Brokat out of Bernwode Dorina (by Viktoria’s Chirac) .

His sire, Bernwode Brokat, boasts an outstanding temperament, good conformation and excellent jumping ability which, combined with his wonderful paces and proven pedigree ensures a 'top class' sire of sports ponies. Bernwode Brokat's bloodlines trace back to some of our superb Welsh ponies such as Bwlch Hill Wind. He also carries the time honoured Downland blood found in so many of the most successful ponies in both Great Britain and mainland Europe.

Brokat's sire Brillant was one of the most prolific sires of successful dressage and jumping ponies in Germany, having competed himself to a high level in both disciplines in open classes. For three consecutive years he was the top sire of German dressage ponies and within the top three sires over a period of six years!

Cornelia, Brokat's dam, is by the notable pony stallion Diamant II who won a Gold Medal for Germany as a member of the 1982 European Pony Dressage Team in Copenhagen. He too has sired many approved sons and State Premium daughters.

 

Britvik's dam, Bernwode Dorina is a descendant of the notable warmblood stallion 'Furioso II' who produced more than fifty five graded sons for Germany. Her Grandsire 'Constantin' is a prolific sire of winning ponies including 'Cash and Go' the 6 yr. Bundeschampion in 1996 and 'Konrad' the 4 yr old Bundeschampion in 1995 . Both these sons were members of the German gold medal team at the 2000 European Pony Dressage Championships and Konrad has proved to be one of Germany’s most valuable European Team ponies to date.
