Woodlander Freddie M – Dressage Stallion with a passport to success


Having been approved at his 30 day test in Schlieckau for Oldenburg, Woodlander Freddie M, the top selling horse at Brightwells in 2013 with Bruce Mathews now a partner, however, he stays at home with his breeder Lynne Crowden at the Woodlander Stud, keeping it all in the family. Power, beauty and temperament are packed into this elastic and big moving young stallion. Woodlander Freddie M also was approved for WBS – UK in 2014, once more gaining particular merit for his movement. His is sire For Compliment, a fantastic mover himself with a great hind leg dynamic and an uphill carriage has passed this stamp to his son and Woodlander Freddie M’s performance test scores were excellent with one of the highest scores and marks over 9 for trot canter and ridability.

In 2010 Woodlander Freddie M’s sire For Compliment was Regional Champion and also qualified for the Bundeschampionat finishing in Bronze Medal position and a crowd favourite. Both Grandsires of Freddie M, Fidermark and Dimaggio, were Champions – one at the Bundeschampionat and the other at the World Championships for Young Horses. This convincing record is further strengthened by the legendary Caprimond and the dam sire of For Compliment, the quiet sire Compliment, who has produced many good high level horses including the powerful GP stallion Cockpit. He brings also the important blood of Calypso II.

From his dam’s line, (Elite Dornroeschen) carries the genetics of World Champion Dimaggio and has herself taken multiple National Championships and now competes Grand Prix. She was Small Tour Champion at Hartpury Festival of Dressage in 2013 and has heart stopping charm and movement especially in the canter. She is of course also the dam of double World Champion and continuing record breaker Woodlander Farouche.

This 16.hh Hanoverian stallion with Oldenburg and WBS-UK grading was born in 2011, so he is still a very young horse. You can see his profile on Horse Scout Stallion listings page under the Woodlander Stud banner here

Heaven is a stunning dark Bay Hannoverian 2012 Graded: WBS-UK stallion standing 16.1hh (165cm) listed with Horse Scout.

Lynne Crowden, owner of the Woodlander Stud, proudly says that from the very beginning, this young stallion has topped the lookability and the lovability polls. As the highest scoring Futurity dressage foal in 2012, he impressed with his type and his movement and this was despite being a very late foal.  Again  at the WBS_UK licencing in 2014 that he impressed with the way of going. This is a horse of “blood” (lighter weight build) but has unusually big movement for his type. Of course his dam line is impressive, St Pr Limoncello, was a Foal Champion, a Youngstock Champion and a Mare Champion and is already the dam of one other Hannoverian approved stallions, Clapton. She is also the dam of the top young dressage horse, Woodlander Betty Boo and her 2014 foal, by Zack achieved Futurity Elite and was also the Reserve Filly Champion for BHHS 2014, and Heaven is no exception in the good looks and eye catching stakes. Heavens sire Hotline was not only the top priced stallion at the auction in Verden but went on, via the Danish Young Horse Champion win, to achieve many successes up to and including Grand Prix. Heaven’s own sire, Hofrat also performed to a high level in the sport. Heaven also boasts the British Team horse Wie Weltmeyer ridden by Emma Hindle from his dams side.

A Warm Reception for Freezing Rain: the only British Stallion to have approved status by the KWPN Studbook


Freezing Rain is a young stallion on the way up.  Born in 2010 this 16.2hh handsome bay AES Stallion was bred at Paddock Woods Stud with Select Stallions, where international event rider Emily Llewellyn and Polo player and show jumper Max Routledge are based. This stud with second to none facilities is a family run stud near Godalming in Surrey where the Grand Prix show jumper Typhoon’s son Freezing Rain was bred in 2010.

Freezing Rains listing on Horse Scout’s Stallion pages has some fabulous pictures of Freezing Rain and his sire Typhoon S. Freezing rain was assessed in the UK by the KWPN inspectors and was allowed to attend the two KWPN stallion grading shows in Holland in 2012 and early 2013. From the 500 3 year old stallions assessed by the KWPN  only a few, whose confirmation and jumping ability and veterinary assessment were of sufficient quality were invited to attend the  50 day performance testing in the autumn of 2013 where Freezing Rain he was made ‘Approved’ by the Studbook!

This has made Freezing the first British bred stallion ever to reach this level. We are justifiably proud of this achievement. Ricky is only a 5 year old Stallion but he is already making a name for himself. His first foal born on the stud has been named Mr Rainmaker he and paddocks Woods say “ He is a beautiful stamp of foal and is really bright and bold in his temperament”.

Freezing Rain is out of Tiandra (a Heartbreaker mare) and by Typhoon S Paddock Woods top breeding and competition stallion.
