Gold and Bronze for Oldenburg

The German dressage riders sovereignly won team gold at the European Championships in Gothenburg, Sweden, ahead of Denmark and Sweden. The best couple in the entire starting field for the Grand Prix was Weihegold OLD and Isabell Werth.

Weihegold OLD, born 2005, by Don Schufro out of Weihevoll by Sandro Hit - Figaro, bred by Inge Bastian from Bargteheide and owned by Christine Arns-Krogmann from Lohne, took gold under Isabell Werth with the German team at the European Championships in Gothenburg. The successful duo effortlessly danced their way to the top among their strong competitors in the Grand Prix with a lead of more than five percent. Weihegold OLD took the Champion Mare title in 2008 at the Elite Broodmare Show in Rastede. In 2009 she and Kira Wulferding took bronze at the Bundeschampionat in Warendorf. In 2010 the couple placed in the Final of the World Championships for young dressage horses in Verden. Weihegold OLD is from the successful Weissena line.

To their delight, Sweden finished the European Championships in Gothenburg with the bronze medal in dressage. Dante Weltino OLD and Delaunay made decisive contributions to this success. These two Swedish championship horses were discovered as foals at Elite Auctions in Vechta.
