Orbetello has maintained top level performance since the inception of his showjumping career.  During his stallion approval at 2 yrs of age with GOV Oldenburg Verband, he scored the highest free jumping score in history.

Affiliated with the Oldenburg stud book, 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.  At 18 years of age he has never suffered a soft tissue injury.  He is in fine form having been loved, ridden and jumped regularly by both Ellesse Jordan Gunderson www.ellessejordan,com and her husband Henrik Gunderson of Horsegym USA. www.horsegym.com

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.
