Dear Hanoverian and Rhineland breeders,
we are still under the impression of a very successful licensing in Verden. The final auction was the first live auction after many months and of course under Corona conditions. About 45.000 people worldwide followed the event via live stream. In many countries, Hanoverian horses were successful in national championships. The number of horses bred by our international breeders is constantly increasing. Details on all these topics can be found in this newsletter. We hope you enjoy reading it.

Czech Republic - Quaid put to sleep
The jumper sire Quaid by Quidam's Rubin/Voltaire died of colic at the age of 16. The bay stallion bred by Friedhelm Vehlber, Espelkamp, already impressed at his licensing. The Staj Mustang Stud in the Czech Republic acquired the premium stallion at the stallion auction and sent him to Adelheidsdorf for the 300-day test, which he completed with a jumping index of 129.85 as the second-best of his year. Afterward the model athlete made his way into the sport and was celebrated as the 2009 Bundeschampion of five-year-old show jumpers. His rider at that time was Johannes Ehning. Quaid was awarded the name of the Supporters Club for Hanoverian sport horses (FRH) and as FRH Quaid celebrated successes up to advanced level with various riders, most recently with Hendrik Sosath, Marvin Drekhahn, and the Czech Marek Klus.
He passed on his talents to his offspring. In 2017 Quaid was awarded the Grande Prize. He was available to breeders through the State Stud Celle and later through the stallion stations Sosath and Staj Mustang.
Jetset first reserve for the World Championships for Young Dressage Horses
The five-year-old Johnson/Beltoni son Jetset, bred by Nina Sixtensson, Sweden, is one of the horses that will represent Germany at the World Championships for Young Dressage Horses in Verden. He was nominated as the first reserve. He is ridden by Kira Laura Soddemann. He already won the bronze medal at the Bundeschampionat in Warendorf.
France - Don Easy formidable
At the French Championships in Vierzon, Don Easy by Don Frederico/Rubinstein (breeder: Dagmar Meyer, Abbensen) danced to the championship title of the Small Tour with Pauline Guillem. The dark bay had been one of the pearls of the elite auction in October 2017. At Grand Prix level, Lights of Londonderry by Londonderry/Weltmeyer (breeder: Inge Bulle, Cuxhaven) and Charlotte Chalvignac-Versin won the bronze medal. He had left the stallion market for France 14 years ago and attracted international attention with Bernadette Brune.
France - More successes
At the championships for foals and young horses only a few Hanoverians or Rhinelanders competed. In the class for three-year-old stallions the victory went to Fabio Mercoeur by Finest/Kasparow, breeder: Guillaume Gautier and Marine Ferté, owner: Anne Schmitt.
In Pompadour the championship of the event horses was held in September. In the four-year-old category, Bililly Beaulieu (Rhld.) by Belantis/Or de Pierre AA, bred by Martine Deguillaume, Peyrat le Château, and ridden by Aurélie Riedweg, won in criterion 1.
Italy - Four championship titles in one go
Allevamento Fonte Abeti of Riccardo Volpi from Sansepolcro in Tuscany/Italy celebrated a great success at the Italian Championships held in Tortona/Piedmont at the end of September. They presented the winners in all young horse classes at the age of four to seven years with their rider Frederico Mexia. They bred and trained all horses themselves. The champion of four-year-old horses was the Rhineland mare Fortuna di Fonte Abeti by Apache/Christ, in the class for five-year-olds the already licensed Hannoveraner stallion Ecuador di Fonte Abeti by Negro out of Sara by Sir Donnerhall/Don Larino won. Sara is also the dam of the one year older Rhinelander Darko di Fonte Abeti by Charmeur, who became champion of the six-year-old horses. The successful quartet was completed by the seven-year-old Rhinelander Claudia di Fonte Abeti by Apache/Donnerhall. Claudia is one of the first self-bred horses of Riccardo Volpi, who breeds exclusively dressage horses. All foals are raised and trained at the stud. During the registration tour of the Verband in Italy in September this year's foal crop was registered and judged in a foal show. As last year, St.Pr.St. Funkenmarie by Fürst Nymphenburg/Wolkenstein II provided the winning foal. She was bred to Negro. The dark chestnut filly with strong movements and type stood out from the large group of this quality crop along with three other foals who were awarded gold medals. Among the awarded foals was the Reserve Champion, a colt by Franklin out of C Reinenka di Fonte Abeti by Christ/Wolkentanz II, who is also the dam of the four-year-old Championess Fortuna, a filly by Franklin out of an Apache dam, and a colt by Jovian/Royal Classic.
Spain - Successes at the Championships for Young Dressage Horses
In Madrid the champions of Spain's young dressage horses were crowned at the end of September. Numerous Verden auction horses were successful. Particularly impressive was the 2013 vintage, where all medal winners found their way to the Iberian Peninsula via the Niedersachsenhalle. The title was won by Betty Boob by Bretton Woods/Sandro Hit (breeder: ZG Königs, Bodenstein) with Carlos Resino Minayo. Her owner Andrea Martinez had bought the black mare at the January Auction 2017. Three months earlier, she had already secured the Rhineland Farron de Amuta by Foundation/Sandro Hit (breeder: ZG Werth, Moers) at the Elite Auction. With him, she competed herself in Mardrid and came third. The Quaterhall/Rotspon son Quarlito by Nymphenburg (breeder: Werner Rademacher, Flögeln) with Yeguada Cuevas Bajas placed between the two stablemates. The Hanoverian Vice-Champion of three-year-olds had traveled to Spain together with Quarlito after the elite auction.
The second title in Madrid was won by Zanzibar by San Amour/Fürst Heinrich (breeder: Bernd Volbers, Beesten) with Roberto Carlos Cruz Rodriguez. He became Spanish Champion of the six-year-old dressage horses. Second in this age group was Quartar by Quantensprung/Laurentio (breeder: Ralf Zierke, Braunschweig) with Juan Antonio Jiménez Cobo, who was auctioned in November 2018 in the Niedersachsenhalle.
A Verden auction horse also won a medal in the five-year-old class. Vice-champion was Danbury by Don Index/Hohenstein (breeder: Annette and Detlef Schelhas, Lage), who was discovered by his rider Armando Martin Robles Andrade at the Elite Auction last October. The third of the four-year-olds, Fraggle Rock by Floriscount/De Niro (breeder: Jürgen Kötter, Rullstorf) trotted to the podium with Maria del Mar González Reina. In the class for eight and nine-year-olds it was the Danone/Azur daughter Dilara (breeder: Tanja Schulz, Ebstorf) who promoted the Verden auctions. Auctioned in July 2015 to Sergio Marti Pérez from Valencia, she won bronze with the 42-year-old.
American Hanoverian Society - Annual Meeting/Silent Auction
In the interest of health and safety, the AHS Board made the difficult decision to cancel the Annual Meeting scheduled for Jan 29-31, 2021, in Wellington FL. Barbara Schmidt DVM, AHS board member and chair of the Annual Meeting Committee, says there are several ideas in the works for virtual educational/community sharing opportunities for breeders, riders, and competitors.
UK - Diamonds are Forever!
38 starters met for the four year old championship in Great Britain. In Keysoe the star of Mount St John Diamonds are Forever rose. The Rhineland Diamond Hit/Royal Classic daughter (breeder: Andre Obermeyer, Stemshorn) and Amy Woodhad showed an impressive performance and left the dressage arena as winners. Emma Blundell, who also owns Charlotte Dujardins Freestyle, purchased the dark chestnut mare as a foal from her breeder.
