BLUE HORS WORLD CLASS | DWB DVH 585 | Born 1990 | 166 cm | Chestnut
BLUE HORS WORLD CLASS’ Sire Weltmeyer was described like this at the Hannover Stallion Selection Trials:“He moved through the arena unflustered. His trot was magnificent. It could not have been any better. The judging committee gave him the top score of 10. His canter stride was a leap forward flowing through the entire body of the horse. It earned a 9.5. The walk was ground-covering and earned an 8.0. In addition he received a 9.5 for conformation and for his overall impression.”
At the Hannoverian Stallion Performance Test 100 Days Weltmeyer went on the win his performance test at Adelheidsdorf with a dressage score of 143.94 – more surprisingly he had a jumping score of 141.44.
Still there is no doubt that Weltmeyer is a sensation as a breeding stallion. In 1991, a colt from his first crop, Wittinger (out of a mare by Raphael) was champion of his licensing, and went on the following year – like his dad – to win the title at the Bundeschampionate, and his performance test.
At the 1992 licensing, Wolkenstein II (out of a mare by Wendekreis) was reserve champion, and then won his performance test the following year, the year in which Wolkentanz won his licensing and he too went on to win at the Bundeschampionate.
Weltmeyer, according to the 2014 Hanoverian Stallion book, produced 86 licensed sons and almost as many state prized mares. They are now pointing to his value as a sire of broodmares, and the cross Donnerhall/Weltmeyer has produced some very nice horses. According to Dr Ludwig Christmann of the Hanoverian Verband: “Weltmeyer is one of those stallions that are born only rarely – Absatz, Bolero, Weltmeyer – they leave their mark on the offspring, they are timeless. It is just not possible to reproduce such a stallion, you can try to breed them, but everything has to click and fit for it to happen. He is the number one stallion.” According to the rider who has been with him all his life, Hans-Peter Klaus: “Weltmeyer has fantastic basic gaits. And it is something very special to ride such an eye-catching horse, especially while he is trotting. When he was a young horse his movements were extremely elastic and powerful. I am always very impressed by his willingness to learn and to do a good job. When Weltmeyer was young, he was a bit difficult to handle, but it was better when he matured. Weltmeyer passes this attitude and the spectacular trot to his offspring. All Weltmeyer offspring wants to be ridden and they ask for work. People enjoy riding Weltmeyer sons and daughters, they are very suitable for ambitious riders.”
The Dam of BLUE HORS WORLD CLASS is GRAEFIN. She is a state prized mare in both Germany and Denmark. GRAEFIN is sired by the Elite Sire GUTENBERG. GRAEFIN has produced several very good foals by WELTMEYER, among these the BRONZE MEDAL mare WONDER. BLUE HORS WORLD CLASS was sold back to Germany in 1997.
