A long shot, I know... but as I was filling out one of the 87,356 registration forms for my new discipline of dressage, I was looking at my horse's papers to find his breeder's name and address, and became curious about the program he came from.
My Brandenburg gelding is 12 now, and was imported as a four year old so it may be that the breeder is out of the game these days, of course. But, as I wrote the guy's name four or five times (WHY can our NGB not figure out how to have a simple, single form for this stuff?) I did wonder if it would be possible to find him. I absolutely love this horse and would definitely consider buying another one from the same program, if that program still exists.
The info on the papers says the breeder is Manfred Neumann, Dorfstrasse 36, Waltersdorf Germany.
Like I said... a long shot. But I thought it was worth asking in case anyone here happens to know more!

Write the breeder a letter, they are very responsive that. If they don't speak english then they will find a younger relative to translate. I have done this a number of times and always received an email back.
have to second tim - and I would say in Eastern germany there will be even lees people understanding english well enough. Put pedigree and a picture intot the letter - so that will catch their eye and let them find a translator. And they will be happy I would guess to hear from Their horse. ;-)
