Orbetello (Orlando x Landgraf I/Cor de la Bryère) has maintained top level performance since the inception of his showjumping career. During his stallion approval at 2 years of age with the German Oldenburg Verband, he scored the highest free jumping score in history.

His physical type, bloodlines, agility and fine mind make Orbetello a world-class competitor. He has proven himself at the 1m60 with three different riders, most recently in 2017 with Paul O'Shea (IRL). He has served his amateur owner equally well over the ten years she has owned him.  

Orbetello offers a temperament that is second to none, exemplary rideability and excellent gaits, as well as superior jumping technique and scope - traits which he passes on to his foals. It is a tribute to his outstanding conformation that Orbetello, after a successful Grand Prix career, is perfectly sound and in great condition, with no history of soft tissue or orthopedic issues.

Orbetello is approved by these registries: Hanoverian (AHS, HV), Rhinelander, and Belgian Warmblood (sBs), as well as GOV.

On March 31, 2021 Orbetello arrived at Bridlewood Farm (www.bridlewood.horse, 859-485-6000) in Union, Kentucky to stand at stud. There he will be managed by the well-respected Barbara Schmidt, DVM. Fresh cooled semen can be shipped overnight.

 Paul O'Shea (IRL) was Orbetello's most recent international rider to distinguish him at the WEF in 2017.  At Spruce Meadows in 2015, Orbetello placed 3rd in the Husky 1.50m class on May 11th in his new partnership with 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 placed 2nd in the very difficult Rood & Riddle Welcome Prix, designed by Steve Stevens, during week one of the 2014 Kentucky Summer Shows. During the 2014 Winter Equestrian Festival, Orbetello finished 2nd & 3rd in 1.40 classes in WEF 12 and 9th in the ESP Spring 3 Nutrena Grand Prix in Wellington.

He finished 3rd in the $10k Hagyard Welcome at the KHJA show in August 2012.

Orbetello won the circuit championship in the 8-yr-old division at WEF 2011 having won every qualifier all season there with Margie Goldstein Engle.  He placed 8th in his first grand prix ridden by Margie Engle.  Next his owner Cynthia Hampton rode him in the amateur jumper divisions.
