Welt Hit II
Welt Hit II is one of the most outstanding sons of the great Weltmeyer and in 2004 was awarded the title of VTV Dressage Champion . He possesses the true uphill conformation required for top level dressage competitions, which allows him to perform his movements with such ease and grace.
Welt Hit II is by the outstanding dressage stallion Weltmeyer, one of the most influential stallions in the Hanoverian breed today, having sired over 88 graded sons. He has such illustrious sons as Wall Street, Weltburger, Wee Weltmeyer, Weserperle S, Wesley, Welt Hit I O, III, IV, V and Wolkenkranz to name but a few. Weltmeyer’s sire World Cup I (full brother to White Foot’s sire World Cup III) sired 16 graded stallions including not only Weltmeyer but also Walt Disney I, Walt Disney II and Warkant. His international dressage representatives include Welcome, Without A Doubt, Watusi and Waltzerkoenig and his progeny have won over £310,000 to date in competition. Welt Hit II’s dam Cileste was by the Irish Thoroughbred Hill Hawk XX who was one of the most successful ‘improving’ stallions at the Hanoverian State Stud at Celle. He produced 5 graded sons plus the international dressage horse Highness and the international eventers High Point and High Prince and his dressage BLUP of 125 is very high for a Thoroughbred stallion.
Welt Hit II was Reserve Champion in his Performance Test, gaining a top dressage mark of 140 in the autumn of 1995. The tremendous promise he showed has been borne out in his many achievements since, including being top 4 year old stallion in the German Championships at Warendorf in 1996, taking the Dressage Champion title at the Zwolle International Stallion Show in 1997 and being top 6 year old at Warendorf in 1998. He is now competing at Grand Prix level
After he showed his first crop of foals in 1996, his offspring have been very popular with both breeders and raisers. Several were already sold for huge sums at the Vechta auctions in Oldenburg. Race, presence and movements are the identifiers of his progeny. In 1998 a son of Welt Hit II was champion of the foal selection at Champion Arnhem. Meanwhile Welt Hit II has more than 15 approved sons. The offspring of Welt Hit II do exceptionally well at the auctions. At the auction in Vechta a 3 year old colt was sold to America for DM 340,000. At the PSI auction in Ankum 1999 a 3 year old filly by Welt Hit II was sold for DM400,000 and at the PSI in 2000 two offspring of him were sold for DM1.200,000 and 800,000 respectively. In the sport the progeny of Welt Hit II are beginning to make their mark. In 1999 a son of Welt Hit II won the landeschampionat and Insa Hansen won the prestigious competition in Rastede with her Welt Hit II product in 2000, 2001 and 2002.
