On Dec. 31st the European Dog Show took place in Budapest. Lucy got Exc. in a very strong junior class (13), which we are very happy about.

Dog show at last... ;-) Abby and Lucy were at the IDS Tulln. On Friday Lucy received Ex.2 in Junior Class, Abby Ex.1 CAC. On Saturday and Sunday Lucy even won Ex.1, Best Junior, Crufts Qualification and National Winner. Abby was pissed with the loud and stressfull atmosphere, didn't really show herself well and "only" received VG1 twice. We are still very proud of our girls.

September 2016

The 8th Trakehner Regional Show for Bavaria and Austria took place at the Styrian Grosslobming. Hosted by the Trakehner Stud Murtal we were overwhelmed by its hospitality! Many thanks again to all people involved in preparing and managing this wonderful show, we really appreciate all the work behind this!
We felt it to be honour and duty to take part in this show with all the mares we had. Bad and good luck were close together when all three mares threatened to be unable to perform due to different little ailments. Luckily it worked for two of the three to get sound in time. So we went with excitement but without great expectations, knowing what quality of horses we would meet.
The more we were overwhelmed when our three-year-old Heart&Soul W won the first competition, the class of jumping mares! Twelve mares competed in this class, which meant it was the biggest of all classes. The judges looked at scope, technique and basic gaits and praised our "Fuchsi" to be the most complete of the class. In the class of families Herztaenzerin W won Id with her daughters Herz ist Trumpf W, Herzbienchen W and Heart&Soul W. Proud and happy and with loads of prizes we went back home.

August 2016

We are happy to announce that both mares we covered, Helene and Heart&Soul, are in foal! Helene von Herzen W has been inseminated with Adorator and Heart&Soul W is expecting her first foal by High Motion. Both foals are due in June 2017.

May 2016

Heart & Soul W aka Fuchsi went to the central mares registration of the Trakehner Verband at Mainburg/Bavaria with us on May 28th. In a field of high quality 3yr-old mares 10 of 13 achieved Premium status, one of them our Fuchsi! She recieved 2 times 8,0 for scope and technique, best 3yr-old in loose jumping! Her marks summed up to 54,5 points, among them 3 times 8,0 for her basic gaits. She measured 169/22 cm.
