Welthoffen is a 2003 gelding by Weltbekannt (grandsire Weltmeyer), with Gotthard and Don Carlos on the Dam's side. He has a lovely uphill canter with lots of natural jump, very good walk, and a good trot which is very easy to sit. A refined and elegant horse, at 16 hands, he is easy for an Amateur or Junior to ride and get on the bit, but flashy enough to get you noticed.
"Scotty" is a real pleasure to show, travels well and seems to enjoy the bustle of the big recognized shows. June and July 2010 at both Raleigh and Lexington he has performed well, scoring in the solid mid 60's with Amateur rider at First level 3 and 4, receiving an '8' on walk and comment of "talented horse" at Lexington.
Welthoffen is particularly adept at lateral movements and is very sensitive to the seat and a quick learner, with a great work ethic. He is solid First level with confirmed shoulder in and doing well schooling all other Second level movements. He loves people and has a puppy dog personality that makes him a favorite of everyone who has ever met him - his vet calls him a "Golden Retriever trapped in a horse's body." Scotty is safe and easy to handle, no vices. Has done some trail riding and introductory jumping. He is fit and sound, working 6 days a week, ready to be the horse of your lifetime. Sadly for sale due to owner finances.
