Thunderbird Show Park


What a delight, FULL SIBLINGS at the same show in Canada!

SkyWalker HW lives in the US, Sydney HW (aka Shakira HW) lives in Canada - they are full siblings to the world famous Selten HW, who lives in the UK and make head lines themselves - how amazing is that?!!!!

 Very proud to have bred these horses and witnessed their birth right, at our farm in Florida, they for sure are worldwide successful, it’s not bragging, if you can do it.

Sydney HW (aka Shakira HW)- red means victory in Canada - won all of her 3 classes, she was a broodmare until quite recently, what an accomplishment to start out like that at a big show, with heavy competition.

Sydney HW (aka Shakira HW) is owned by Sheryl Williams.

Shakira HW (aka Sydney HW), black/bay Hanoverian mare by the famous Sandro Hit and SPS High Princess HW (Hohenstein/Donnerhall/Bolero), born 2008, standing approximately 16.2 hands.  


Shakira HW is a high quality youngster. The well known multiple Young Horse Champion and TRIPLE CROWN WINNER - Selten HW - is her full brother.

 She is sired is by the famous Sandro Hit, inheriting his elegance and movement.

Better than ever: Sandro Hit has started a new era in the dressage scene and is already writing sporting and breeding history
The number one: National Young Horse Champion — Young Dressage World Champion — unique producer performance
Sandro Hit progeny are breaking all price-records, are annually winning championships and are Approval Champions

Sandro Hit absolved his stallion performance test in Medingen in 1997 and in 1999 he became federal champion six-year old dressage horses as well as world champion juvenile horse in Arnheim. He has meanwhile been trained up to advanced class. Right from the outset, Sandro Hit set standards not only in sport, but also in breeding. His first crops of foals are convincing by their exceptionally aesthetic imprint of type as well as their outstanding motions. His son Sandrit was the 1999 approval winner in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, while Sommerhit was runner-up in Berlin-Brandenburg and Sandro Ace became vice-champion in  Oldenburg . Sunny Boy in turn, was awarded a premium in  Oldenburg   , whereas Sommeliere likewise was approved in Oldenburger in 1999. In the year 2000, Sandro Hit made the headlines once more: His Brandenburg bred daughter Poetin won the Federal Championship of three year old mares and geldings under Hans-Heinrich Meyer zu Strohen. A number of his offspring attained peak prices at different German auction sites, including his daughter Starlet, who at DM 140,000 was the top lot of the collection of broodmares at the 2000 Vechta spring auction. On top of that, two Sandro Hit progeny were awarded the desired status “approved” at the  Oldenburg   approval, as well as at the NRW approvals. In 2001 he sired the Federal champion and two vice champions.

 His first offspring are already successful at World Cup level – read more about him on his own website!

Her dam is the consistent producer SPS High Princess HW , she is an overall 9 Hanoverian mare and by Hohenstein/Donnerhall. Her full sister scored 10’s on gaits in her mare performance test and successfully showed in Germany up to the highest levels of dressage. This is a super strong dam line and the competition genes are for sure inherited.


Shakira HW is a horse of unbelievable quality and super fancy mover. She has the elasticity everybody is looking for and a fine, chiselled super pretty head. She has a free shoulder, a huge grundschwung and swings nicely through her back. This extremely talented mare has international potential. She is black/bay and beautiful. Shakira HW, is a full sister to the top 6 year old in North America , Selten HW.

Selten HW has won the National Young Horse Championships as a 4 yr old, a 5 yr old, and now the 2010 six year old division with breathtaking scores. His scores were as high as 87.4%!

 It's a historic event, as no other horse has ever won the TRIPLE CROWN with victories in 3 consecutive years.

With this accomplishment, Irene Höflich-Wiederhold got the highest scoring US bred horse award 3 years in a row and Soraya HW as well as Shakira HW have all it takes to step into Selten HW’s footsteps.

 So there is more to come!

 Shakira HW has the talent to do it all and to repeat this unbelievable success. She is a very sweet mare and your ticket to the top!

Shakira HW (aka Sydney HW)

Shakira03.png (2148758 bytes)

was born February 6th, 2008 and we are blessed again with this foal! Yes, she is a filly – yippieh! She moves like we want them to move, lots of air time, super uphill trot with a free shoulder and a springy uphill canter to beat, barley ever touching the ground, this is what we are breeding and striving for. In addition, she is the sweetest thing you can imagine, just cuddly, friendly and interested in humans.

Shakira HW’s dam, SPS High Princess, is entered with an overall 9 in the Hanoverian  marebook. SPS High Princess' grand dam, SPS Batavia , has, among other winners, produced the 1997 Bundeschampion (National Champion of Germany for Dressage), DUVALIER by Davignon.  Duvalier sold initially at Verden for DM 240,000 and then for DM 1,000,000.

Her full sister scored 10s on her gaits at her inspection and is competing at I-1 right now. Their sire, the Elite Trakehner Stallion Hohenstein (Caprimond/Matador) with a Dressage Index of 148.29 points, sired the 2001 Silver Medallist at the World Young Dressage Horse Championships, Munchhausen, and the 2000 German Vice Federal Champion, Habitus.

Shakira HW’s full brother Selten HW was the first time at a show in Devon in 2006 and here is the result:

He is the Reserve Grand Champion of Dressage at Devon !!! The American born Hanoverian colt is by Sandro Hit out of SPS High Princess (by Hohenstein/Donnerhall) and was handled by Michael Bragdell. Irene Hoeflich-Wiederhold's Selten HW ( is

Reserve Grand Champion of Dressage at Devon

The USDF Breeders Champion for Colts and Geldings

  Champion Winner of his class: 2 year old Colts and Geldings  

Best born in the USA and  

he is High Point Hanoverian!

Then, barely one week after his arrival at Hassler Dressage in 2007, Selten HW was called the Champion stallion of the Oldenburg inspection with the highest score of the day, a whopping 83%. With a 9 for canter, 8,5 for trot etc.

Shakira HW’s family is quite famous and we hope she will follow in all their footsteps, she definitely has the genes, build and ability to go all the way to the top.
