Winnie (Weltmeyer) 16.2hh Hanoverian mare in foal to Quaterback (Quaterman) 16.2½ hh

Winnie is in foal to the very exciting young stallion Quaterback. He was Bundeschampion of three year old riding horses in 2006 with the highest scores for his trot and canter. The outside test riders in Warendorf even gave him the dream score of 10.0. Prior to this test he had won several tests for young riding horses. He was also the winner of his 30-day test with a final score of 9.14 in dressage, an 8.43 for jumping and an overall score of 8.89. Quaterback has unbelievably dynamic movements and is also of outstanding type.

Quaterback comes from one of the most successful mare lines of modern day. His dam Passionata is a half-sister of the World Champion and double Bundeschampion, Poetin. Her full brothers Samba Hit I to IV produced superb presentations at the Bundeschampionat – Samba Hit I was also a finalist in the 2006 Nürnberg Burgpokal and the sire of Samba’s Diamond who became the Champion Stallion of the licensing in Berlin-Brandenburg and Sachsen-Anhalt that same year. Quaterback's successful advanced level sire Quaterman also participated in several Bundeschampionats and is deemed one of the best sires for passing on excellent movement. The grandsire Quando Quando took 15th place at the World Championships in Aachen in 2006 under Kristy Oatley-Nist. Quaterback's pedigree is geared for performance from all sides.
Quaterback's first season produced foals that immediately qualified for the German Foal Championships and were accepted to the Elite Auction in Vechta.
Winnie's sire, the great stallion Weltmeyer, needs no introduction. He was 1998 Hanoverian Stallion of the Year and has produced many graded sons, performance offspring and high priced horses. Winnie's dam sire is Bogenschuetze who is by the foundation stallion Bolero sire of the famous Brentano. Winnie's sister was bred to Brentano and the foal was sold in 2005 at the Elite Auction to the USA. The Weltmeyer /Bogenschuetze cross has produced the dressage horses Wild Wild West and Wandango and is in the dam line of the fabulous new stallion, from Paul Schockemöhle's stables, Sarkozy by Sandro Hit. Bogenschuetze also features in the dam line of Greenoaks Dundee.

This foal comes from superb dressage lines, will be a chestnut and is eagerly awaited.
