HoY - 2013 = a disaster for Vollrath Liaison and her rider Jutta Rosenblatt.
Liaison and Jutta have been very successful over the last two seasons and the team was set to shine in the Level 2 at the HoY 2013, however an accident blew out the candle of success for the NZ title.
Liaison was kept at the HoY grounds in 'portable and not anchored pipe yards' provided by the organisers of the annual event.
We do not know what actually happened during the night; however the fact is that Liaison dragged the set of four yards about and injured (visibly) her hind leg in the process.
Jutta decided to scratch all entries and retire Liaison.
Due to Liaison showing still 'unevenness' after a fortnight - although her superficial skin injuries had healed completely - we decided to have her checked out with the shocking result: a crack in the pelvis!
Without further ado we made the decision to retire her from future competition and retain her for stud duties; she will have time to heal over winter.
... She will produce awesome foals in future - Berny is convinced of that.
Sadly, we lost a competition horse but gained a valuable broodmare - and that is a great outcome. Imagine the loss if she had been a gelding!

Vollrath Stud was presented with great success at the HOY 2013 with young horses by Vollrath Lessing and Worldwide P.B.
Where there is sun there is also shadow as our personal great hope of winning the Level 2 title with our LIAISON was dashed. She injured herself during the first night in the makeshift yards and could consequently not be competed due to her injury.
However we are proud producers of quality young dressage horses:
Here is the way to their success:
MFS Level 2 (29 entries)
Test 2.3 (29 entries)
Test 2.5 (28 entries)
Rochelle Speirs supplied us with accompanying photos and sent this letter:
We also want to acknowledge the good placing of Weltweit under Leia McEvoy:
Test 3.2 (20 entries)
Finally we like to point out the Latimer's full brother LE ROUGE, rising 2 yr old, is for sale and also as stated previously we would like to get LIAISON into the hands of a competent dressage rider! - go and check the out under "for sale".

Two first-time Paralympians have won gold medals in their respective grades at the London 2012 Paralmypic Games, with one causing quite an upset.
Australia's Joann Formosa and the hanoverian stallion Worldwide PB won gold in Grade Ib ahead of Lee Pearson, Paralympic champion since 2000, and Grade II British rider Natasha Baker won gold with Cabral.
Of Worldwide, Formosa said: "He's a stallion which is very unusual for Para-Equestrian sport, but he doesn’t behave like one – even around mares. He's a real sweetie."
She bought Worldwide just seven months ago, was competing not only at her first Games, but in her first international with this horse.
The combination dethroned the most decorated Para-Equestrian of all time, Lee Pearson, with an elegant and harmonious performance. Their third place on Thursday had alerted some to her medal potential, but it hadn't really crossed anyone's mind that she would be able to take on the big guns - Lee Pearson and Pepo Puch - on only her second international appearance.
Andrew McLean, whose wife Manuela trains Formosa and Worldwide, said: "Well done, Berny and Jutta. Manuela attributed much of the success to the great start in life with you two."
• In the freestyle test on September 4, Formosa and Worldwide placed fourth. Trainer Manuela McLean reported: "In the test Jo unfortunately forgot to do one of the prescribed moves (a circle in walk) and was quite heavily penalised of course, scoring 3s whilst her other scores were 7.5 to 8.5 with a 10 for the walk from one judge! So she ended up missing out on a medal and placed fourth. A great achievement none the less.
"Had she done the movement it would have been a silver medal! Julia the team coach,who called her test tried her damndest to call another walk circle but Jo's ears were on the music and she didn't hear her. And so we came fourth."
Worldwide to take Australian rider to Paralympics

Formosa was speechless when she learned of her nomination with Worldwide last week. It has been a lifelong goal of the 51 year old Victorian to represent her country.
"Since I was a child it's been a dream of mine to represent Australia. I was told that I would never ride again so to be at this level is just fantastic. Wearing the uniform and seeing the Australian flag hanging in the stadium will be unreal," she said.

Level 1 DRESSAGE CENTRAL DISTRICTS TROPHY
Level 5 DALVEY TROPHY
NZ HANOVERIAN SOCIETY BEST PERFORMED HANOVERIAN
Level 1-3: Ingrid Anderson All Amour Level 1
Level 1-3 ... this should be Lindisfarne Laureate as the filly clearly beat All Amour by 5.7 - 13%, however 'HSNZ' politics ... a V-branded horse is definitely a Hanoverian!
This proves quite clearly that the H-brand does not necessarily make the better horse.

Southern Hawkes Bay 3.12.2011 - Results of Vollrath horses:
Amazing as there is hardly a deeper bred Hanoverian than LATIMER competing. But that's "politics"!
We at Vollrath are very pleased that the 'V" brand beats the "H" where it counts.

Hot of the Hannoveraner press - November 2011:
Lemony's Nicket (Londonderry / Weltmeyer) *2008, d/brown stallion
He is the National Champion - Premium Stallion - and the outstanding horse of the 125th Hanoverian Elite Auction in Verden.
In an extraordinary career the son of Londonderry / Weltmeyer, Lemony's Nicket, bred by Dietmar Eckardt, Burgwedel, achieved the top price of €900,000 in Verden, making him the most expensive ever sold horse at the Verden auction. Overall level of the 85 horses offered had an average price of €43,282.
Just a few days before the Elite Auction he was licensed for Hanover and awarded a premium in Adelheidsdorf.
In the fore field of the Elite Auction Nicket was already traded as the top favourite. Six weeks earlier the stallion became the highly acclaimed National Champion of the three olds at the Bundeschampionat in Warendorf.
"We are pleased that this horse will remain in Germany," breeding manager Dr Werner Schade said. The US stallion station 'Harmony Sporthorses' secured this exceptional horse after a thrilling bidding duel. In order to further his training and breeding operation Lemony's Nicket is in care at the 'Stallion Station Pape' in Hemmoor.
This is another big hit in support of Vollrath's breeding programme:

What a couple of days it has been at the
Dressage Wellington Championships
29-30 October 2011
Vollrath Hanoverian bloodlines were successfully represented at this show, in particular through the progeny of our stallion Lessing. Four were bred out of Vollrath Stud mares by the stallions Genius, Dynamit, Worldwide pb.
Jutta and Liaison's haul from the show - three first placings, one third, and the cup and rug for champion.
It was their first outing together.
Of course due to their ages it was only the entry level of competition with the exception of two Worldwide pb offspring (Worldman and Waldfee).
The tournament had a large number of entries.
Level 1:2 = 31 entries
Level 1:4 = 19 entries
Level 1:5 = 31 entries
Level 1:6 = 23 entries
Level 2:1 = 24 entries
Level 2:2 = 24 entries
Level 2:6 Challenge = 17 entries
Level 2 - Freestyle = 10 entries
Level 3:1 = 22 entries
Level 3:6 = 18 entries
Level 3 Freestyle = 10 entries
We at Vollrath could not have had a better start for the season 2011/12.

Vollrath's young stallion "Fürst Patrick" (Filou) is solidly under saddle now.
Jutta is certainly very pleased with him as he is light-footed and forward with seemingly endless energy.
She says: "I am now madly in love with Fürst Patrick! I've been riding him for about a fortnight and I think he is awesome!"
