Frasier, 2018 Champion Dressage Foal at his Hanoverian Foal Inspection!
2018 Hanoverian Colt, Frasier by Hanoverian stallion, Foundation, out of Dauhlia (Dauphin/Wonderland/Western Star). At his inspection, the judges said Frasier had everything they liked to see in a foal! This elegant, typey colt showed a lot of presence. With a really well set neck, harmonious in his body, a good topline and very correct legs, they found him very impressive. Frasier demonstrated a very good walk – balanced and over reaching; and a powerful trot, using his hind leg well to come under himself and up hill. Grace Wanyura stated that Frasier was the “stereo-typical dream of any hunter buyer” with his beautiful head, excellent expression and a very modern type. Combined with his lovely trot and canter, Grace thought he looked like he was going to jump extremely well.
Bryer, 2017 Champion Jumper Foal at his Hanoverian Foal Inspection!
2017 colt, Bryer by Balou du Rouet, out of St. Pr. St. Cascade (Contendro I/Falkland/Goldstern). At his inspection, the judges, Dr. Christmann, Ferdi Haupt and Grace Wanyura were impressed with the way Bryer presented himself. Demonstrating boldness, inquisitiveness and a careful nature, Bryer’s trot was described as elastic and elevated. His athletic canter demonstrated the ability to change leads already, at such a young age. Having a world class pedigree that includes all the good jumper lines behind him, the judges are interested to see if this fellow has what it takes for the big leagues!
