The 2007 Oldenburg stallion, Fairbanks, was the undisputed Champion of the 2009 Oldenburg Stallion Licensing in Vechta, Germany. He quickly became the crowd favorite with his spectacular performance, extravagant gaits, impressive jumping ability and willing temperament. Fairbanks completed his 30-Day Test very successfully. In a field of 49 stallions, including Bundeschampionate winners, licensing champions and top-priced stallions, he placed third with an overall score of 8.74, with 9.25 for rideability 9.25 and 8.75 for jumping.
He repeated this success in 2011 at his 70-Day Test and in his 100-Day Test he was the only stallion to score over 100 in both jumping and dressage, showing his great versatility and willingness under saddle. He has gone on to be successful in the advanced levels.
In 2011, Fairbanks presented his first outstanding foal crop, which were very representative of himself: large expressive foals with long lines, beautiful heads and necks and outstanding movement. At the 2011 Oldenburg licensing, Fairbanks was awarded the 1c-Premium due to his exceptional Stallion Test results, impressive foals and his overall development as a top breeding stallion. This was especially remarkable as he was not primarily breeding in the main Oldenburg breeding region and therefore had to stand up to strong competition for this award. Currently, his older offspring just beginning their under saddle careers are exceeding expectations.
