Widmark

Unmatched rideability and proven quality!
Imported shortly after his year-long stallion test as a three-year-old in Germany, Widmark trained and competed up to Grand Prix with owner Meg Williams.

One Exceptional Stallion

Widmark was one of nine stallions designated as premium out of 100+ stallions at the 2000 Hanoverian licensing in Verden. He was third in the 70-Day Test at Adelheidsdorf with an overall score of 129.88 (jumping: 101.09; dressage: 136.11) including a score of 9 on both trot and canter, and a Bronze medalist in the three year old stallion class at the Bundeschampionat (German Federal Riding Horse Championships) in 2001, receiving a 9 on his walk.

Under trainer and rider Meg Williams, Widmark established himself as a top competitor in the dressage arena. In 2003, he was awarded USDF Dressage Horse of the Year for first level. He also placed third for the first level/FEI 5 year olds.

Widmark continued up the levels to the Grand Prix. Now retired from competition, he was a sheer delight to ride and to train. He walked out of his stall ready and wanting to work every single day.

A Proven Past

His sire, Wolkentanz, was Champion at his stallion licensing in 1993, Vice Champion of his stallion testing and Bundeschampion of three year old stallions in 1994. In 2001, Wolkentanz was ranked 2 stallion by the German FN for dressage production. To date he has 9 approved sons.

Widmark is approved by the Verband hannoverscher Warmblutzüchter e. V. and Verband der Züchter des Oldenburger Pferdes e.V. in Europe and the American Hanoverian Society and the Oldenburg Horse Breeder’s Society in North America.

A Window to the Future

Over the years and while competing, Widmark has sired Gold Medal Foals, Hartwig Award winners, and Year-End award winners in Hunters, dressage and eventing.
The willingness and rideability of his numerous offspring is widely acknowledged. They are wonderful partners and are getting rave reviews from their owners and trainers. He is siring modern, correct young horses with great gaits as well as unmatched rideability and willingness to learn.

Of the fourteen mares eligible for the Hartwig Award this year, seven were Widmark daughters. The reserve champion was Wicked Cute, a daughter of his out of an El Bundy mare. Four of his progeny also earned their Premium status, proving themselves both as sport horses and broodmares.

The top hunter at the AHS Awards was a Widmark out of Flair, a Fidertanz mare. For yearling futurities, the reserve was a Widmark grandchild. His offspring excel in many arenas under amateurs and professionals alike!
