World Champion and World Record Holder

Three world records and three gold medals at the World Equestrian Games – Totilas can only be described with superlatives. With his performances in the dressage arena, he has touched people far beyond the sport of dressage and ensured a previously unknown popularity. With Edward Gal, Totilas won Team Gold, Silver in the Special and Gold in the Freestyle at the European Championships in Windsor/GBR in 2009 and set world records in the Grand Prix and Grand Prix Freestyle. In December, Totilas beat his own record in the Freestyle in London/GBR. In 2010, he won the World Cup final in ’s Hertogenbosch/NED. At the CHIO Aachen, he set another world record in the Special: the judges awarded an incredible 28 times the perfect score of 10.0. In 2010, at the World Equestrian Games in Lexington/USA, Totilas won Team Gold and two times Individual Gold. Then Matthias Alexander Rath took over the ride and, in 2011, Totilas was the best horse of the German silver team at the European Championships in Rotterdam/NED. In 2012, he won two silver medals at the German Championships, in the Special and the Kür. In 2015, he won Team Bronze at the European Championships in Aachen.
Totilas can also only be described with superlatives from a breeding point of view. Glock’s Toto Jr./Edward Gal/NED won double gold at the Pavo Cup (5 and 6 yo). The Reserve Champion Governor-Str/Adelinde Cornelissen/NED secured double silver at the World Championships (6 and 7 yo). Also placed there: Gotilas du Feuillard/Corentin Pottier/FRA, Straight Horse Don Tamino/Anne Marie Hosbond/DEN as well as Total Hope/Pernilla Andrè Hokfelt/SWE, Champion Stallion and Swedish Champion. He has also produced over 20 licensed stallions, including Top Gear, Reserve Champion and qualified for the German Championships as well as Topas/Nicole Casper, Baden-Württemberger Champion and advanced level winner. True Love OLD was 2nd Reserve Champion Mare and German Vice Champion. At auctions, Totilas’ offspring regularly achieve top prices. Total Recall was the most expensive foal of all times, selling for 200,000 euros. Total Ideal cost 105.000 euros and Tout le Monde cost 90.000 euros at the Vechta auctions.
His sire Gribaldi was Trakehner Champion Stallion, victorious at Grand-Prix level with Edward Gal/NED and Trakehner Stallion of the Year in 2008.
