Valentin HW - The Total Package
Friday, January 6, 2023
Valverde NRW added to his collection of titles last year with his third triumph at the Westphalian Championships. With his trainer Eva Möller, he received a 9.0 for each of his three gaits and the overall impression! At the German Championships, he convincingly won the qualifier for the final (9.0) and also received high individual scores in the final: for the "super energetic trot, which is incredibly powerful, dynamic and uphill" and for the walk "with fantastic rhythm and stretch" each a 9.0. Commentator Dr. Dietrich Plewa also praised Valverde's "canter with three clear beats and flying changes with a clear jump through the body and a lot of expression" and attested to Valverde's "outstanding talent". He finished fourth with an overall score of 8.5 against very strong competition. He was then selected to represent Germany at the World Championships for young dressage horses, however, this championship could not take place due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Valverdestarted his career in 2016 as Westphalian Champion Stallion and the following year completed his stallion performance test in Denmark as the third best dressage stallion with a total score of 9.23 (10 for walk, character and conformation). Valverde then won the gold medal at the Westphalian Championships and the silver medal at the German Championships for four-year-olds. In 2019, he was once again Westphalian Champion (overall 9.22, walk 10), he narrowly missed the medal places and came fourth at the World Championships for young dressage horses and won the German Championships with an overall score of 9.3.
Valverde produced numerous show winners and coveted auction foals from his first crops of foals. Victor Hugo was auctioned for 36,500 Euros in Vechta. Valuable became top price of the 3rd Helgstrand-Schockemöhle Online Auction, selling for 79,000 Euros. His sire Vitalis was Champion Foal in the Netherlands in 2007, Reserve Champion of the NRW licensing in 2009, winner of the dressage index of his stallion performance test in 2010, placed at the World Championships and Pavo Cup final in 2012, Champion in the USA and again qualified for the World Championships with a record number of points in 2013 and victorious in the International Small Tour at only seven years old in 2014.
