Vollrath Hanoverian Stud is located on State Highway 3 towards New Plymouth just 8km outside the city centre of Wanganui.

Right in the middle of the western bay of the North Island of NZ the Wanganui area has one of the most beautiful moderate climates all year round with no major natural setbacks as its position is sheltered from storms and floods — but not from little earthquakes from time to time.

This climate allows year-round outside horse rearing and enhances natural healthy growing through unrestrained activity in a perfect environment, creating physically and mentally sound Performance Sport Horses — ready to take on the world.

Vollrath Hanoverian Stud  was established in 1982 after Berny emigrated to NZ in 1978 from Germany, where he served for 16 years in the Police Force – resigning as a Detective Chief Inspector.

Initially the syndicated and private stallions in NZ were used to establish stud foundation mares.

In 1991 the time had come to import the stud’s first stallion from Germany: Dynamit (Dynamo/ Eger II). He arrived at Vollrath in January 1992, and instantly became a very popular sire. However, disaster struck in November 1998, when Dynamit had to be put down due to a broken bone in his shoulder (nobody knows what really happened to him).

In 1996 Vollrath purchased a second stallion from Germany:Worldwide P.B. (Weltbuerger-Bella [Brentano II]) a perfect complement for Dynamit and all other hanoverian Stallions in New Zealand.

Worldwide P.B. was provisionally licensed in December 1996, and ranked 16/40 for rideability in his 100-day performance test in Adelheidsdorf.

He did not reach the necessary 90 points for registration with the NZHS due to his jumping under saddle – he was placed 34/40. The test rider Dr. Ulf Moller gave Worldwide the note 4, which disqualified him from being licensed. The stallion was taken without our consent from Adelheidsdorf to the sales venue in Verden, where he already had found a buyer – guess who was the sales agent .=. Dr. U. Moller … makes you wonder, doesn’t it!

Worldwide P.B is registered with the NZWHA. However due to his own performance as a top dressage stallion under Claire Seidl-Wickens he received the full international licensewith the Hannoveraner Verband in May 2009.

He started his first season in spring 1998 with a moderate book of mares.

And again it was kind of “fate” (at a casual visit in Kattenfenne) that another stallion was purchased in September 2004. The same trustworthy ‘stallion rearer’ “Hof Heitgress” in Germany had the perfect match for our existing bloodlines in the two-year-old colt “Vollrath Lessing“.

(We named the young colt after a very famous German poet and writer G. E. Lessing.)

Lessing joined our service actively from the 2005 season onward.
