The 2010 Oldenburg Elite Mare Champion, Fifty Fifty, has been sold to Sven Rothenberger. The 3-year old bay mare (by Fidertanz x De Niro) will be Sanneke's first young horse that she will train up the levels herself.

Fifty Fifty is bred by Dr. Peter Wreesmann and was previously owned by Kerstin Klieber and Ernst Kemper. After the mare won the Oldenburg Elite Mare Show in Rastede there was much interest from buyers and "Fifi" eventually sold to Sven Rothenberger. 

"For six years Sanneke has been learning from schoolmasters like Domino Dancing, Konrad, Paso Doble and Deveraux," said Rothenberger. "Now we think the time has come that she applies all that she has learnt onto a young horse. Sanneke will be training Fifty Fity as much as school allows her to."

The 17-year old Sanneke Rothenberger also earned her "Goldenes Reitabzeichen," a gold medal which riders in Germany get when they have achieved a certain number of S-level victories. In four months time, Sanneke has been victorious at S-level six times with Deveraux, three times with Paso Doble and five times with Wolke Sieben.
