Werther was the very first stallion honored by the title "Hanoverian Stallion of the Year" in 1992 and has certainly proven his ability to sire performance and breeding horses treasured for their athleticism, soundness, versatility and personality.
Werther is by the great Hanoverian stallion, Wendekreis, from whom he gets strength, bone and jumping ability. From his Marcio xx damline, Werther inherits his wonderful movement.
Werther's progeny are proof of his ability to pass on top performance qualities. As of 1999 his offspring had won over 2 million DM in competitions. 41 of his sons have been licensed. 90 of his mares have achieved the prestigious States Premium Mare title.
Famous dressage horses sired by Werther include: Willy the Great, First Wellpoint, Warrenty, Wacramentana and others. Our own Classically Sired Whiz Kid was USDF Fourth Level Horse of the Year 1997. Wroyale, Willa, and Falina are USDF nationally ranked dressage performers.
Famous international jumpers sired by Werther include: Werra, Silwa Wapiti, and B&H medicott Walloony. In 1996 Classically Sired Fonteyn won the Bari von Budigen Award for the highest score in the nation during the AHS Inspection Tour. Classically-Sired Fuerst von Feuer was the only young stallion licensed in the US.
