Peron, one of the most famous Trakehner stallions to date, has ended his sport career. After his latest performance at the CDI Donaueschingen, owner Dr. Carole Meyer-Webster decided to stop showing this beautiful bay stallion and allow him to focus on his breeding duties.
The highlight of Peron's showing career was the bronze team medal at the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta with rider Michelle Gibson. Peron and Gibson made a wonderful combination, but only few months after the Olympics Dr Meyer-Webster transported the stallion back home to Germany.
The German Trakehner stallion's training continued with Rudolf Zeilinger, who showed him at the 1997 CHIO Aachen. Zeilinger's student, Ann Kathrin-Ehlen, took over the reins and showed him through 1998, earning respectable scores between 67% and 70%. Peron, the Trakehner stallion sired by the legendary Mahagoni, is now at stud at Hofgut Albfuhren, where he will continue to pass on his wonderful bloodline.
