Dressage at Devon Analysis: Sneak Preview

I had a lovely time at the Dressage at Devon breed show 2018, in spite of the rain. What I saw in 2018 were American-bred winners being the rule rather than the exception. Of the horses in breed classes who scored over 80%, three-quarters were US-bred. Of the five top-scoring horses of all the breed classes, four were bred in the US. My full article, with horse and breeder profiles, will appear soon. Watch my news blog. ...read more

Wild Dance

(Wolkenstein II/Matcho x/Goldstein)

Wild Dance a 16.2 hh Hanoverian Grand Prix performer with many wins and placings and multiple offspring at Grand Prix Level. Winner of the 100-day stallion testing in Germany with over 140 points! Over 147 points in dressage/ridability. Although he is a fantastic mover, he also received a 9 on jumping. Wild Dance is by one of the best Weltmeyer sons, Wolkenstein II, out of a States Premium mare by Matcho AA. This bloodline combination has proven exceptional. Leoni Bramall and Hubertus Schmidt both publicly stated that Wild Dance has an exceptional temperament and willingness to work. He is a good candidate to refine heavier warmblood mares and add movement and suspension to the gaits.

Wild Dance is nothing short of breathtaking. With elastic movement, natural balance and self-carriage, he is a dream. He placed fourth in the German National Championship as a young horse. His father, Wolkenstein II, was also the winner of his stallion performance testing and went on to sire 41 licensed sons.

Wild Dance who placed fourth in the Bundeschampionat as a youngster, has an impressive FEI show record. In 2005, with Hubertus Schmidt, he was the Reserve Champion at the 2005 Neurenberger BurgPokal Finals, a prestigious show circuit in Germany for seven to nine year dressage horses competing at Prix St. Georges. Wild Dance and rider Hubertus Schmidt had the highest qualifying scores, routinely scoring above 75%.

Due to his focus on performance in Germany and lack of breeding interest by his owners, Wild Dance did not keep a heavy breeding schedule, however, his offspring statistics are spectacular. In 2011, Wild Dance had less than 50 offspring because of his owners focus on performance. Yet with only 24 offspring registered in competition 10 had successes and 4 placing at Grand Prix Level in 2011. “Will Be” placed at Grand Prix already as a seven-year-old and by 2011 had 43 placings and 9 victories. Seven mares became States Premium mares in Germany. In the U.S. he bred only a handful of mares but produced the top-scoring Premium colt nationwide for the Oldenburg N.A. Wild Gamboled HU became an Elite Mare Candidate and ”Deyonce” (Wild Dance/Contucci) became one of only three Swedish Diploma mares in 2011.

Wild Dance is fully licensed and approved for breeding by the American Hanoverian Society, the German Hanoverian Verband (AHS & VHW) and Oldenburg/ISR, GOV, Rhineland, Hessen, Westfalen, Sachsen Anhal
