The sire Vitalis was first reserve champion of the main NRW licensing in 2009, dominated the dressage index of his stallion performance test in 2010 in Warendorf and, at an early age, notched up wins and placings at the Dutch stallion championships and at the World Championships of 5-year-old dressage horses in 2012. With Charlotte Jorst he was placed in the finals of the World Championships of 6-year-old dressage horses. Shortly after he dominated the US championship in his age-group with record marks of 10.0 for trot and 9.8 for canter. Since then he has been trained up to advanced level and is successful up to Intermediaire I.
Vitalis’ daughter Virginia K was the winner of the elite show and at the Westphalian Week, all five of the three-year-old mare and gelding finalists were offspring of Vitalis. At the autumn elite auction in Münster-Handorf, the four star horses were offspring of Vitalis. The two highest offers were 200.000 euros. To date, 14 of his sons have been licensed, including Veneno, who was sold for 310.000 euros in Vechta in 2014. 2015 brought another rich crop: His daughter Victoria's Secret was German national champion of the four-year-old mares and geldings, two other descendants of Vitalis also reached the final and his daughter Vienna was at the top of the Westphalian elite mare show.
Vitalis’ sire Vivaldi, internationally successful with Hans Peter Minderhoud, already sired 19 licensed sons in Germany.

In 2014, Vitalis dominated the World championships of the six-year-old dressage horses in Verden, where his offspring ranked first, third and sixth.
