HWfarm is a name synonymous with quality and in the tradition of classic German breeding practice, HWfarm's horses continue to excel in modern equine sport world wide. International victories keep coming from Selten HW (bred by Irene Höflich-Wiederhold), he was out and about to win his first time out at Intermediare I, as well as his first outing in Grand Prix in the UK. Selten HW’s Grand Pix debut with a 75.05% was a big attraction and Linda Whetstone, judging on the three quarter line, commented “The horse's expression, paces and way of going are of star quality.” and Sally Merrison added “It’s a privilege to judge them and the partnership between horse and rider is lovely to see”!
Anders Dahl and his partner keep dancing their way to victory and Anders reports that Selten HW is probably the best horse he has ever had and ridden. The pair has become quite an amazing team and are definitely a team to watch as they continue to dominate on the European Dressage circuit.
Here in the States, Selten HW’s younger full brother SkyWalker HW, also bred by Irene, has made his way up the levels as well, now the proud owner of an Intermediare I Championship title, with his owner Catherine Reid, scoring as high as 72.7%!
At the Golden State Dressage Festival in California, the High Point of the entire show, a 82.2%, went to Sir Niro HW, aka Sotto Voce, with Jennifer Schrader-Williams in the saddle. The pair also won the FEI 5-year-old class, with a score of 8.2, making owner Heidi Schneller-Cook very proud, she says "He is a Diamond! One very special horse! Thank you Irene!!".
There were other HWfarm.com horses as well and they did fantastic, winning their classes, collecting ribbons, scoring beautifully. ShowMaster HW, aka Sueño Hit, won both Developing Prix St Georges classes scoring over 70%, owned by Rachel Saavedra Dressage. El Capitano HW, now known as Elysian or Ely, placed 3rd at FEI Prix St Georges and 5th at his first outing in the FEI Intermediate I, owned by Tracey Lert and Sugarland HW, winning two 4th level classes and placing 4th at Developing Prix St Georges, owned by Lynn Welge.

A 5 star review of HWfarm was given by Carol McPhee, her Fendi HW won both of his classes, first time out, shortly after import and she wrote:
"5 stars for Irene and her team in Germany. They deserve the highest regards to their breeding, raising, training and selling amazing horses. Purchasing a horse of their value sight unseen was a bit skeptical but once the process started I was immediately at ease. Irene provided complete medical records for my vet to review and history of Fendi HW to allow me to make the best decision ever to purchase him. Irene kept me up to date on his complete travels from Germany into the US. She has continued to keep in contact with me and Fendi HW and has been there for me 24/7, literally, to answer any questions I have had. Fendi HW is everything and more than they advertised. His elegance and fanciness is a product of such professional and successful training from Irene's team in Germany. I will not hesitate to make my 2nd purchase from HW Farm and highly recommend anyone that wants the full package (select bloodlines, elegant correct confirmations, sane well-mannered dispositions, and stellar training) to purchase one of their beautiful horses sight unseen. Keep up the great work Irene and thank you for Fendi HW. He is loved to eternity and back."
More and more HW horses are present in the US and all over the world. Nancy Smith just welcomed her 3rd HW horse, Lord Lennox HW and he is a welcomed addition to the wonderful Damon’s Design HW and Hudson HW! They winter in Florida right now and she reports, the horses are her true loves and they make all her dreams come true. There are too many HW horses, victories and ribbons to count and name them all - right now, but another great impression came from Fifty Shades HW, competing successfully at 4th level, also known as Finley, who is wonderfully ridden by Janine Little, owned by Shawneen Jacobs, scoring 9’s and 10’s already.
Festival HW, loved by Donna Gatchell and his owner Karen Kerchner Baillie, is already successfully competing at 4th level and continues to collect an amazing amount of ribbons again, and like every show, year after year, more victories, championships and more. They write "HW horses are the best and thank you for this wonderful horse".
Dr. Amanda Apesos says, "Bentley HW won the USDF Region 7 Training level Adult Amateur championship class and he is the horse of her lifetime".
This is what HWfarm stands for - happy horses, happy customers! Success all around, due to very careful selections and breeding, consequent handling, training and hard work, over many years of raising and bringing these kids along for their new mommies and daddies.
