With a superior 8.67, he placed 2nd in his class at the
Mit 8,67 guter 2. Platz bei den Hengsten auf der Westfalenwoche/Handorf
Die Silbermedaille ging an den 2. Reservesieger der NRW-Körung, den
Quaterback-Fürst Piccolo-Sohn Quotenkönig aus der Zucht von
Frank Dahlhoff in Lippetal mit Lisa Neukäter im Sattel. "Ein Bild
von einem Mannsbild, dieser Hengst, ein Kraftprotz!", schwärmte
Dr. Plewa. Der imponierende Dunkelfuchs, der auf der Station Schult in
Hünxe deckt, erhielt die höchste Gebäudenote des Tages, eine 9,0.
Beim Trab gefiel die "natürliche Erhabenheit". Das Hinterbein
könnte in den Verstärkungen weiter unter den Schwerpunkt treten, aber
ansonsten hatte die Jury wenig zu bemängeln an Quotenkönigs Auftritt
im Trabe, 9,0.
Auch der Galopp "mit klar erkennbarer Schwebephase, bei stets
gleichbleibendem Rhythmus" bekam ein glattes "Sehr gut".
Den Schritt hätten die Richter sich etwas ergiebiger mit mehr Freiheit
aus der Schulter heraus gewünscht, 8,0. Eine 8,5 gab es im
Bereich Ausbildung. Die Anlehnung könnte etwas leichter sein, was Lisa
Neukäter mit einem wissenden Nicken bestätigte. Doch angesichts des
herrlichen Typs dieses Pferdes und der großen Konzentration, die der
Hengst während der Aufgabe an den Tag legte, lautete auch die letzte
Das bedeutete 52,50 Punkte, mit denen Quotenkönig im B-Finale
antreten musste, nur 0,5 mehr als sein Verfolger Stanford. Aber der
Quaterback-Sohn konnte den Abstand vergrößern. 18 Punkte erhielt er
von Kim Pfeiffer und Marcus Hermes, machte 70,50 Zähler in Summe und
den Titel des Vize-Champions. Damit konnte er an dem Zweitplatzierten
der Qualifikation vorbeiziehen.

highest placed US bred horse in the 6yo class. It was a great

Young Horse Championships 2012: Look, what Skywalker
HW and his mommy Catherine got! Love it!!!
August 20th, 2012
Amazing scores, just as expected. Leonardo
HW got the highest score at the show with 78% in a 4 year old class.
He gets at least 8's and 9's for his walk alone, every time.
HW (same owner) scored a 9.5 in one of her tests and was high point
with 77%. There were cows and a rodeo going on close by, her owner tells
us, she piaffed all the way back to the barn!
Congratulations, so happy for the horses and their rider/owner. This
is amazing to follow and makes us very proud.
has been either 1st or 2nd place in all of his classes. Mostly firsts. I
believe the lowest score might be a 66 or 68%. He is normally above 70%.
We are so proud of him. I care for him daily. Now that our show
season is mostly over, we are concentrating on me riding him. I have
been riding an I1 schoolmaster and loving it. This has kept me in the
game while FiveStar HW is growing up.
He is happy, healthy and loved by everyone. I regularly get comments,
?how did you get so lucky?? ?how did you find such a nice horse?? I was
drawn to him and I put my faith in you. It certainly paid off and I feel
so fortunate to have my dream horse! Take care, Cynthia
on Top"? Sold him a while back, look how stunning he is! He's
in Australia. CDI now, successful at I1, won several championships and
he's much loved!!! Check out his sales/sold
page from "back then", he sure held up to all the buyers
and our expectations!

Another match made by HWfarm:
HW was at his first show with his new mommy/owner Tiffany. They are
both super happy, two blue ribbons, first time out and absolutely
successful against big competition, what could be better?
Huge congratulations to them, she writes: "I
really adore this horse!!!!"
Thought you might like this photo of Skywalker
HW from out last show. It was POURING rain during this test- I was
soaked to my skin after! LOL But I was happy with the 73.3% score at 3rd
Let's cheer on Catherine Reid, she did an awesome job with Skywalker
HW (bred by HWfarm). Very proud of their success, you go girl!!!
This is from her site:
Decided to post enter Skywalker
HW in the FEI Beaujolais Show.
We came 3rd in a VERY large mixed FEI YH test (4,5,6 yos were all
scored together in an FEI TOC class) Overall score of 7.8 :) I rode our
trot and lateral work like a ninny and held us back to a 7.8. We got our
best canter score-8.4! Despite as the judges said our flying changes
being "a work in progress" 8.0 for overall impression :)
HUGE congratulations to Amanda Bailey and her horse Faulkner
(purchased sight unseen as a 3yo, by Amanda, from www.HWfarm.com).
We are so happy and so proud of them. Here is a video from this
weekend and some comments from her: Quote - Amanda: Won the PSG Jackpot
class. The most money I have ever won. Three for three at the show.
Three wins for Faulkner.
Another update on Faulkner. We attended the St Louis Area Dressage
Society (SLADS) summer festival show this past weekend. Faulkner a star!
We rode in the PSG $2500 jackpot class in front of a crowd on Saturday
night. He won the class! There were a couple of small bobbles, but
overall he performed so well. He just keeps getting better and better.
Lilo Fore awarded him a 71%! The other judge wasn't quite as in love
with him. :) I'm including a couple of pics from the performance, they
were taken by Ivy Miller. There is no jacket because it was so hot and
coats were waived. Thank you again for finding this special, special
Another successful match, Weltino
HW was purchased sight unseen, check this happy pair out! Barb and
her horse Weltino
HW - with a blue ribbon, huge congratulations, so awesome and also
thank you to Lyn Fonzo for helping to make this happen.

Congratulations again to Cricket Harvey, whom showed her Leonardo
HW (purchased sight unseen)
this weekend in horrendous weather and won her class. She reports that
he is a blast and that they get lots and lots of compliments as they are
such a great match. So happy for you Cricket!!! Love that you are
successful with your boy! Thank you for your trust!
May 29th, 2012:
Huge congratulations to Catherine Reid, she is stepping in Selten
HW's footsteps with a current victory in the 6 year old Young Horse
Class this weekend with her SkyWalker
is the full brother to Elizabeth Ball's Selten
HW whom won the Young Horse Championships 3 years in a row. Both are
bred by - Irene Höflich-Wiederhold, www.HWfarm.com
Huge congratulations to Amanda Bailey and her debut at I-1, with her
She had bought him sight unseen as a 3 year old and competed him up the
level ever since. He’s a family member and superb competition horse.
So happy this match was made.
Thank you Amanda for all your support through the years and hope you’ll
have much more success with this wonderful boy.
Here is what she had e-mailed:
I wanted to update you on Faulkner's
(Fridolin) progress up the levels. He debuted this month at I1, and
earned our first score towards our gold medal. It is a work in progress
as he tends to get ahead of me in the changes still and there are some
other spots that need ironing out, but he is so good and earnest in his
work. He has taken to the FEI movements like a duck takes to water. He
was made to dance!
The harder the work gets, the more he tries. He is such a gift. Thank
you again for finding him for me, I am forever grateful.
Warmest wishes, Amanda
May 22nd, 2012:
Second show in the US, huge congratulations again to Cynthia and Heather
The boy scored “9” on gaits!!!
Hi Irene! FiveStar HW had his first away show. He was an outstanding
boy and received so many compliments I am including his scores and
comments below from his trainer, Heather Oleson Thank you again for this
very special boy. You chose most wisely for me
Champion Stallion at the Verband der Züchter des Oldenburger Pferdes'
first saddle approval in Vechta 2012. Fürstenstein is a stallion with
excellent basic gaits and high rideability. The sire, the Fürst
Heinrich son, Fürst
Romancier, sired both the Champion stallion at this approval as well
as the Champion Stallion at the ordinary autumn approval.
Fürstenstein's dam is the national premium mare, High Value, by the
black Trakehner stallion Hohenstein
and the Donnerhall
mare Davina. The same combination which resulted in the gorgeous and
Highness. Further down in the pedigree, you will see the noble
founder of the descent, Bolero.
Congratulations to Leonardo
HW and his owner Cricket, he scored 71.8% at his first show in the
US. What a great horse and happy owner, she actually bought three horses
so far from us and loves every single one of them!
Got this info from Linda. She bought StepMaster
HW and Weltprinz HW sight unseen as they were just youngsters and
loves them both. I'm so proud of her and the boys. Way to go Linda, huge
congratulations, well done! From Linda: I have earned my Bronze medal -
on Steppy (StepMaster HW), Irene!
Now I have all of my Fourth Level scores and need to get on with Prix
Here is a new picture of Catherine Reid with Skywalker
HW. The one to the right...lol.. He was bred by Irene Höflich-Wiederhold and is a full brother to the 3
x Young Horse Champion Selten HW (owned by Elizabeth Ball/Pan Am
Rider). We are so happy that these full siblings are in wonderful hands,
their sisters got lucky as well, one is with Carol Robertson and the
other with Kim Jackson.
