Wiona Champ, 2006 Hanoverian filly by Widmark, out of Lady Longchamp. Elegant, friendly and feminine. Beautiful chestnut with small star and snip and two hind socks. This filly has dressage in her blood and shows an aptitude for jumping.
Wiona attended the AHS inspection at Oakwood Farm in 2006. She was one of the top fillies called back to the arena at the end of the inspection. The judges, particularly Ludwig Christmann, praised her pedigree, conformation and movement. Dr. Christmann, the assistant breeding director at the Hanoverian Verband, has previously commented on the successful crossing of Lauries Crusador and Weltmeyer bloodlines in The Horse Magazine.
Wiona should mature to over 16.0 hands. As of June, 2008 she stood 16.0 hands. Her pedigree is primarily one of dressage, but there is a strong degree of jumping blood as well. Her Thoroughbred blood is evident in her refinement and femininity. She has the mind and body that will serve her well in a sporting career. She also has the added benefit of being a filly with an extremely valuable pedigree, which will make her an asset to any breeding program.
Lineage includes classic bloodlines such as the sought-after Thoroughbred stallion Lauries Crusador. Lady Longchamp’s sire, Longchamp, placed second out of 43 stallions and won the dressage section of his performance test in 1995, with a score of 157.52. He also earned high scores on all three gaits, character, temperament and rideability.
Widmark rated premium at the 2000 Hanoverian licensing in Verden, achieving an overall 3rd out of 100+ stallions. He earned a dressage score of 136.11, including a score of 9 on both his trot and canter. He was awarded USDF Dressage Horse of the Year for first level and placed third for the first level/FEI 5-year-olds. Widmark’s sire, Wolkentanz, by Weltmeyer, was Champion at his 1993 stallion licensing and was ranked #2 by the German FN for dressage production.
Wiona is now with teamwork dressage at JILBA in Catharpin, VA.
