Hartpury Festival Of Dressage Sponsors


Hartpury Festival of Dressage

Horse Scout was among the high profile sponsors at Hartpury’s Festival of Dressage

Last week, where around 1,000 spectators gathered to watch the country’s best dressage riders including Charlotte Dujardin who stole the show scoring 90.625% when she premiered her new Olympic Grand Prix Freestyle on Valegro.

The Olympic duo also won the CDI Grand Prix class sponsored by Horse Scout scoring 82.28% — 5% ahead of Carl Hester who came second on Nip Tuck. Third and fourth place was taken by fellow Olympic dressage team members Spencer Wilton on Super Nova II (77.50%) and Fiona Bigwood on Atterupgaards Orthilia (75.14%).
Charlotte’s performance was such that by Monday, 6,000 people had already tuned in to see the video of her winning the Horse Scout-sponsored class on Hartpury’s website.
Other notable victories at Hartpury Festival of Dressage included Carl Hester and Nip Tuck who beat fellow competitors by an impressive 10% margin in Sunday’s Grand Prix Special class, sponsored by Baileys. Michael Eilberg was another highlight scoring 76.632% to win the Shadow Horse FEI CDI Inter I on Woodlander Farouche.
More than 300 riders from around 19 nations competed at the event which gave spectators the opportunity to see a host of Olympic riders perform for the last time before they head to Rio.
Woodlander Wild Child

British Breeding; Woodlander Wild Child


Woodlander Wild Child – A British Hanoverian Stallion and a futurity star mapped by his superb breeding.

A future dressage superstar By Woodlander Wavavoom x Woodlander Farouche, this beautifully made stallion at stud is a 16.3hh chestnut graded WBS UK.

The futurity evaluators commented on his “excellent proportions, balanced trot and his superb freedom in his shoulder” when Woodlander Wild Child scored 9.79, the highest futurity premium ever awarded at Solihull 2011.

Woodlander Farouche (his dam) had two foals and both were born by embryo transfer. Crucially though, the genetic link has not fostered a parental bond! “We’ve got an interesting photo of them glaring at each other in a car park.” said owner Lynne Crowden.

Woodlander Wild Child is a Double Futurity Elite WBS Foal and Supreme Champion Licensed Stallion (Hannoverian, WSB-UK) – Double Licensing Champion. “A champion all the way from the day he was born” say his owners.

Woodlander Wild Child became the WBS: UK Supreme Champion in 2011, and in 2013 he was again the top dressage two year old and then gained a stallion licensing “double” with both the Hannoverian International and the WBS – UK. His World Champion mother is Woodlander Farouche who was not only a world record holder for a dressage score, she also had a top scoring approved Hannoverian sire in Woodlander Wavavoom. Woodlander Wild Child is certainly from the best of the best.

He is an extraordinary young dressage stallion and is available to dressage breeders in the UK looking for a Hanoverian Stallion.

His sire Wavavoom is stallion with a wonderful temperament, power and paces. Not only is his breeding genetic exemplary, Woodlander Wavavoom has progeny which prove why he is a stallion of such renown.  18 of his progeny are listed as Elite and two of his colts are licensed – Woodlander Wild Child and also Woodlander Wales – both of whom are double licensing Champions. In 2010 and 2011, Woodlander Wavavoom qualified for every Young Horse Championship with scores of 8 and above, and as a 4 year old was runner up in the Badminton to Farouche. 2011 saw him as a finalist again at the National Dressage Championships and the Reserve Champion Shearwater 5 year old.  He gained his life approval from the German Bundeschampionat in 2012. As a six year old, he scored 86% at Advanced Medium

On his sire line, his sire and the dam of his sire, St Pr Louisiana, were bred by Woodlander Stud from a Westfalian line which produced seventeen Westfalian State Stallions and multiple Grand Prix horses, and in five generations he has no less than 14 State Premium mares.

Stud and Breeding Review: Woodlander Farouche Pedigree


Firstly, congratulations to Woodlander Farouche and Michael Eiberg on their brilliant win at Bolesworth!

Woodlander Farouche is the dam of Woodlander Wild Child.  Her pedigree is the topic of the moment, and Woodlander Stud are experts in the art of breeding, with genetics and form being their fundamental principals.  Woodlander Stud explain what exactly (as near as you can guess these things) has made Woodlander Farouche the amazing mare that she is – ”Her dam Dornroeschen is a very, very good mare (and proven in competition) but you would want to improve her ‘roundness’ as she has a rather angular body. Farouche’s sire, Fuerst Heinrich, was a very round horse, big but not with exceptionally long legs, but he was World Champion himself, as was Dornroeschen’s sire, Dimaggio. Fuerst Heinrich seemed a good choice and we were blessed with what may be a once in a lifetime result – the close to perfect Farouche.” Her sublime test at Bolsworth just a few hours ago has justified her flood of Tweets and Facebook comments over the last few hours.

Woodlander Farouches’ dam, Woodlander Studs mare Woodlander Dornroschen, was Horse & Hounds Outstanding Mare Winner last year. Lynne Crowden, her owner, bought her from Brightwells Auctions in foal. British European team medallist Michael Eilberg also owns Dornroschens half brother out of the same mare.

Dornroschen herself is a successful international small tour horse (with three 1st s and a 2nd at Barcelona in March this year) and both she and Farouche are ridden by Michael Eilberg.

What makes Woodlander Farouche so good? “First and foremost are her genetics. Through considered breeding, they have given her the perfect conformation and mechanics for super uphill and expressive paces as well as a temperament that ensures she has a trainable mind” says Carole Mortimer.

Definitely hitting the nail on the head and congratulations must go to Michael Eiberg, Woodlander Stud and of course the lovely mare herself Woodlander Farouche.
