Congratulations to Rachel & Adrian Whiting and Sharon Cox, who own Franziska imp. Winner of the Prydes Easifeed Leaderboard for 2014. Franziska imp. is a 6 year old chesnut mare by Furst Nymphenburg and was imported during the clever initiative run by the Hanoverian Horse Society of Australia to import fillies into Australia from Germany. Franziska imp. was very capably ridden by Ruth Schneeberger from South Australia. Ruth has been Franziska’s imp. competition rider and together they had four wins and seven placing’s at for their winning 47 points. It is lovely to see a mare successfully competing.
The Prydes Easifeed Leaderboard takes results from selected Novice and Elementary tests in Western Australia, South Australia, Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland, with the overall winner receiving a tremendous prize of a pallet of Prydes Easifeed. A big thank you to Prydes, who have been a supporter of the HHSA for seven years now and are one of our main sponsors.
Second place goes to a Queensland bred Hanoverian, Remi Flashdance from Western Australia. Owned by Elizabeth Anderson, Remi Flashdance by the late Fisherman’s Friend, won five tests and was place five times for 41 points.
The third horse is Revalentino, an imported gelding by Rubinero, owned by Joanne and Courtney Barbera of Queensland. Revalentino imp. and Courtney are on the Dressage Queensland 2015 Young Rider Senior Squad.
A quick breakdown of the breeding of the horses who made it onto the leaderbord show some trends that may interest you
- The most represented line is the F line with a total of 14 horses being by an F stallion.
- Of the F stallions, Fisherman’s Friend has the most progeny with ten horses. This is just under 25%.
- The R line is in second place with eight horses, five of these are by Rotspon.
- The W line is third with seven horses, five by Australian standing stallion Whisper.
Unfortunately not all breeders of Hanoverians register their horses, many Hanoverians were competing but are unregistered. Remi Stud who bred seven horses on the leaderboard, three in the top ten, has a policy of Hanoverian registering all their foals, colts and fillies, which has undoubtedly contributed to their good showing on the leaderboard.
Congratulations again to Franziska imp., her owners and rider, and all horses that made it on the leaderboard.
