What is Aufgehellt ("dilute") about?

Our goals...

We would like to breed top notch dilute dressage horses!

We are a a young family, passionate about dilute warmblood horses. We own two mares with some of the finest dressage bloodlines currently available. These two gems will build the foundation of our breeding programme. We plan on keeping it small, but highly innovative.


Find out more about our dilute mares.


We want to help raise awareness for the dilute colours!

Whenever we have a conversation about dilutes, the reaction is fairly similar: "Wow, I didn't know that!" . This sparked the idea of  trying to spread the word even further and help raising awareness for dilute warmbloods.

 We plan on building a knowlegde-platform:


  • Information about the science behind the colour
  • How does the German horse breeding industry work?
  • Who breeds dilute warmbloods?
  • What Stallions are available?

Find out more about the information we provide on breeding dilute warmbloods or even send us some ideas and links to include on our website.
