Liberty Gold ...  16.2H 2001Chestnut by Londonderry out of Walida by Weltmeyer

    By age 3, Liberty Gold had already attained  the highest honors of a Hanoverian youngster of his age group: Double Champion of both his Stallion Licensing (2003) in Verden and of the 11 month Performance Test (2004) at Adelheidsdorf.

    At his Licensing , Liberty Gold took highest honors, excelling in his basic gaits, free jumping, confirmation, and overall suppleness.  He stayed in Germany throughout 2004 to be started under saddle and to complete of his Performance Testing in Adelheidsdorf.   He was victorious with a dressage index of 147.75 and an overall score of 140.93.  When the final scores were tallied, his astonishing results were:  Liberty Gold scored 9.33 on trot, 9.5 on canter, 8 on walk, 9 on character and temperament, 9.667 on Rideability, and a 9 on his willingness to work.

     Liberty Gold is the son of Londonderry, himself winner of his stallion licensing in 1997.  As a 4 year old in 1999, State Stallion Londonderry won the riding horse performance test of the German Riding Championships in Verden and later on that year won the Federal Championships of German Riding Horses, or Bundeschampionate in Warendorf.  Two years later, Londonderry won the reserve championship in the 6 year old division in Warendorf.

    As a producer Londonderry is known for stamping his offspring with his modern type, exquisite rideability, and above average movement.  In the 2004 breeding season, Londonderry was the top Hanoverian stallion among German breeders with over 800 mares covered.

Sire of Winnifer

Wolkentanz I ...16.1H 1991 Chestnut by Weltmeyer out of SPS Lovely by Ludendorff.

    The best producing son of the legendary sire Weltmeyer.   Some in Germany believe that he may surpass his sire.  He became Champion Stallion at the Verden licensing in 1993. One year later in 1994 he won the three-years-old stallions classification at the Federal Championships of Young German Riding Horses and was runner-up in the stallion performance test, scoring convincing 140.53 points in the dressage category. 

    In 1995 Wolkentanz was honoured as best stallion of his age-group. Like his father, Wolkentanz has excellent movements, very good rideability and great talent for dressage. In 2001, a Wolkentanz colt and filly won the Hanoverian Foal Championships with fantastic scores... including perfect 10's for their gaits.  Only a few weeks later the chestnut colt achieved the top price at the Verden Elite-Auction of Foals and Broodmares. Also in 2001, another offspring of Wolkentanz became Federal Champion in the class of the three-years-old riding horses at the Federal Championships in Warendorf.

Sire of Winnifer's 2013 Filly

Londonderry ...16.2H 1995  Chestnut by Laurie's Crusador xx out of Windsor Queen.

Londonderry was born for success. He was the sovereign winner of the stallion licensing in 1997. One year later, the very high quality son of 2006 Hanoverian Stallion of the Year, Lauries Crusador xx, was fifth at the stallion performance test, achieving 134.56 points in the dressage category. In 1999 the captivating State stallion convincingly won the riding horse performance test during the German Riding Championships in Verden and only a short time later he obtained highest results at the Federal Championships of German Riding Horses in Warendorf as well. Londonderry is definitely a young stallion of excellent type and expression, with great talent for dressage. The first offspring of Londonderry were born in the year 2000. The foals are clearly shaped by the noble stallion. They are in all points similar to Londonderry: wonderful in type, long-legged, beautiful heads and very good movements.  In 2003 at the Hanoverian Stallion Licensing 61 stallions were presented and approved.  The champion of the licensing was a Londonderry/ Weltmeyer cross receiving high marks for suppleness and his top line. In 2005, Londonderry received a Breeding Value Index of 157 points, with an assurance of 95% heritability, from the German Equestrian Federation.  In 2006 his sons Locksley II and Londontime excelled.  Locksley II Londonderry/Weltmeyer was the German Federal Champion at Warendorf of the 4 year old division and Londontime Londonderry/Walt Disney set a new record for highest sales price at the Verden Elite Auction selling for $510,000 euro.  Dr. Ludwig Christman had this to say about Lauries Crusader xx. A Thoroughbred stallion like him who in his first generation produces Grand Prix horses, is very rare.  Already there is Lesotho with Ellen Shulten-Baumer, and Le Beau in northern Germany with Mr. Koch.  Falk Rosenbauer has been very successful at Prix St. Geroges with Little Big Man.  He also commented about Weltmeyer, Weltmeyer is one of those staliions that are born only rarely -Absatz, Bolero, Weltmeyer-they leave their mark on their offspring, they are timeless.  It is just not possible to reproduce such a stallion, you can try to breed them, but everything has to click and fit for it to happen.  He is the number one stallion.
