Every year, U.S. breeder Irene Wiederhold of Horses Worldwide (HWfarm) in Cape Coral, FL. uses her special touch to help every type of rider, from amateurs to professionals, find that perfect partner to take them to the top of their game! With so many satisfied clients, Irene is fortunate to hear often from owners about the great successes and accomplishments of the horses that she has carefully raised and imported. HWfarm horses just keep collecting the ribbons, results and victories to accomplish record breaking results. With so many to name, it is without a doubt, that one of the biggest accomplishments was achieved by three times Young Horse Champion Selten HW, bred in the U.S., by HWfarm. Ridden by Anders Dahl, Selten HW was named HORSE OF THE YEAR, in the battle of the unbeatables.
A truly exciting event, the battle between Selten HW and World five- and six-year-old Champion Woodlander Farouche was eagerly awaited, given their status as two of the hottest young prospects in world dressage, both being internationally undefeated in 2014, qualified for the Mount St. John Future Elite Championship, Horse of the Year Show. Eight of Britain’s emerging equine super stars, all aged seven to ten, came together at the Elite Championship for an Intermediare-I freestyle competition-come-battle, to decide who would become king or queen of the youngsters.
When Selten HW entered the arena, he immediately commanded the attention of the crowd and showed the Horse Of the Year Show audience, why they had been unbeatable all season in 2014. Their music certainly gave the feeling that they were going to war.
Dramatic, yet rhythmical, percussion combined with emotional string and brass segments encapsulated the big black gelding perfectly, showing he is a horse of sheer power. Scoring a jaw-dropping 79.20%, the impressive duo took the lead away from the previous riders and stayed undefeated all the way to the end.
Selten HW, might well be the only US bred horse to have achieved this victory and to collected this title.
Many other HWfarm horses brought in the ribbons, victories, high point awards, year end awards and more, way too many to name them all! You can find out more about success stories of HWfarms horses reading the testimonials and/or newsflashes on www.HWfarm.com.
