In 1998 at the 100 day stallion performance test in Verden, Viva Voltaire received a score of "9" for his character, disposition, ability to work, willingness to work and jumping ability, and scored 106 points in total.  He displayed 

the most scope over jumps of all stallions at the inspection according to the publication "Der Hannoveraner".

As a four year old, he was Champion of the Jumper Development Series for 4 & 5 year old horses in Ontario and winner of the Eastern Finale of the Series at the Tournament of Champions.  In 2001, he continued his successful career in the jumper ring under Roberto Teran and was Reserve Champion of the Ontario Jumper Development Series and Reserve Champion at the National Jumper Championships for 5 year old horses at the Royal Winter Fair.  In 2002, Erynn Ballard and Viva Voltaire finished the Ontario Jumper Development Series for 6 year old horses in fifth place.  In 2008, Viva Voltaire was one placement behind For Pleasure in the USEF Leading Hunter Sire rankings, and also placed in the Dressage and Jumper Rankings.  Because of his accomplishments, Viva Voltaire is recognized as an approved North American Hanoverian Jumper Breeding Program Stallion despite having an early career ending injury.


Viva Voltaire shares the same dam line as Sandro's Boy, the 2006 winner of the World Cup for show jumping under Marcus Ehning.  Viva Voltaire's pedigree features three outstanding sires, Voltaire, Grannus, a grand-son of the legendary Grande, and Argentinus, that were all successful competitors themselves and produced many international show jumper progeny.
