Breeding and training warmblood sporthorses for
the Olympic disciplines: Dressage, Jumping, & Eventing.

Rhineland Stud Farm

Ed Rothkranz bred, trained, and rode his horse My King (pictured above) in the 1980 Alternate Olympics for the Canadian Olympic Team. My King is a son of Martel, who was on the Bronze medal winning German Olympic dressage team in 1952. Mr. Rothkranz received his training from Pollay, Shultheis, and other German riders of that era.

Since moving to Kentucky in the 70s, Mr. Rothkranz has been breeding horses for the Olympic sports, training horses in dressage, and giving clinics in the United States and abroad. He has been the instructor for the instructors of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, as well as a consultant for the purchase of their all black warmblood mounts.

With a band of broodmares descended from Martel through My King and other Martel offspring, Mr. Rothkranz has had great success breeding his current stallion, the Trakehner Ockeross. Ross is by the internationally famous Inselkonig, who was recognized by both the Trakehner and Hannoverian registries as passing on great temperament and trainability. Ross is out of Odessa, dam of the 1998 Trakehner Futurity winner Oliver Twist and the filly O'Charlesy who received Model Mare status at the 1999 inspection.

We invite you to visit our farm in Kentucky and see our horses, or call about clinic opportunities. Rhineland Stud Farm is located on the Tennessee/Kentucky border about 45 minutes north of Nashville and 30 minutes south of Bowling Green.
