American dressage sponsor Gwendolyn Sontheim Meyer has acquired Anabel Balkenhol's 13-year old Westfalian mare Winci as new Grand Prix horse for Guenter Seidel to ride. Sontheim Meyer owns Coral Reef Ranch in Rancho Santa Fe, California, where the 52-year-old Seidel has based his horses for many years. Coral Reef also owns Beezie Madden's U.S. Olympic show jumper Via Volo. Winci is a chestnut mare by Weinberg x Saluut which was owned by Klaus Balkenhol. The Grand Prix mare was briefly trained by Hubertus Schmidt in 2010, but Anabel Balkenhol started competing her at Grand Prix level in 2012. The pair performed at the CDI Lingen and CDIO Aachen as well as at the 2012 German Dressage Championships.
