White Heather, dressage test 

It is always appreciated when a mare's pedigree contains a stallion awarded the coveted Hanoverian Stallion of the Year award. However, it is amazing to have a mare whose 4-generation pedigree reads the who's who of breeding and contains 4 stallions awarded Hanoverian Stallion of the Year!

White Heather is a mare who is very well-bred, sired by the exceptional Weltmeyer son, White Star, and out of a sterling pedigreed mother, Staatsprämie Amelie, who was imported to Canada while in foal with Heather. Heather began a Dressage career achieving consistently good scores with judges frequently commenting on her brilliant gaits and willingness to work. She is now retired while still young in order to begin her career as a broodmare. Heather is a powerful mover with a great engine and 3 exceptional quality gaits. She is a very kind soul who loves people. She always comes when she is called, is very polite, easy and uncomplicated to handle, and always willing to do what you ask. Her appearance is very similar to that of her great-grandsire, the legendary, Argentinus, right down to white streak through her nostril.

Heather was sired by White Star, the spectacular son of the legendary Weltmeyer. White Star was Reserve Champion of the stallion licensing in Verden in 1995, and went on to become Champion winner of his 100-day performance test in 1996 setting a new world record with an overall score of 148.70, dressage score of 158.5, and a jumping score of 123.62. Since 1996, only 2 stallions have managed to beat this amazing score. Later on in 1996, White Star won the Bundeschampionate and was crowned Federal Champion 3-year-old of Germany. In 1997, he won the award for "Best Stallion of the Year" from the Hanoverian Verband and the FrHr.v.Stenglin Prize in Verden. White Star is a significant sire producing 9 approved stallions to date and over 33% of his female offspring become State Premium or elite mares. In 2002, his FN dressage index was an impressive 155, once again proving his value as a distinguished dressage stallion. Further proving his versatility, White Star was awarded the USEF Stallion of the Year 2011 (Hunter). His offspring are successful in FEI competition in Dressage, FEI Show Jumping, and championship hunters.

Heather's grandsire, Weltmeyer, needs little introduction. He was Champion of the stallion Licensing 1986 in Verden, Champion SPT in 1987 in Adelheidsdorf, Champion 3-year-old stallion at the Federal Championships of German Riding Horses in Warendorf. In 1988, he was honored in Verden as Best Stallion of his age group, was DLG Champion in Frankfurt in 1989 and Hanoverian Stallion of the Year in 1998. Weltmeyer is the sire to the Federal Champions Wittinger, Wolkenstein II, Wolkentanz I, and White Star.

World Cup I was the first of 4 full brothers. In 1979, he was licensed as a 2-year-old in Hunsrück and the next year absolved his stallion performance test in Adelheidsdorf excelling in all areas and achieving a total of 130 points, champion out of a field of 33 very competitive stallions. He was awarded Hanoverian Stallion of the Year 1997. By the end of his breeding career, he had produced 51 State Premium mares, over 331 performance horses, 91 Elite Auction horses and 18 approved sons.

Heather's damsire, Allround, is sired by the legendary, Argentinus, named Hanoverian Stallion of the Year 2005. He was a successful advanced level jumper, was awarded Performance Class I, Main Premium Champion stallion at his SPT. Argentinus gave his offspring spectacular rideability, superior athletic abilities, versatility of sport being one of the few stallions who have sired offspring successful in FEI international competition in all 3 Olympic sports. Argentinus passed away in 2007 leaving a huge legacy of great athletes and exceptional offspring in his sons and daughters. His sire, Argentan was crowned Hanoverian Stallion of the Year 1994 due to his extreme success as a sire with over 805 progeny earning winnings of nearly DM 1.7 million, with his broodmares being especially highly regarded.
