1998: Hanoverian Stallion of the Year
"Weltmeyer exploded on the scene as the Champion
of the 1986 Stallion Licensing in Verden. After sweeping all the major German
Championships, he began his breeding career in 1988 and since then has been bred
to more than 200 of the best German mares each year. He is now fulfilling his
promise with extraordinary offspring. In short, Weltmeyer must be considered one
of the All-Time-Great Hannoverian sires.
From his first foal crop, Weltmeyer's son Wittinger won the 1991 German Champion
Three Year Old Riding Horse title, and won the 1992 Stallion Performance Test.
Another son, Weltburger, was the Four Year Old German Riding Horse Champion in
1993. Weltmeyer's daughter Windrose was Reserve Champion Mare in the European
Mare Show for Riding Horses.
From Weltmeyer's second foal crop came the Stallion Performance Test winner and
1993 Three Year Old Riding Horse Champion - Wolkenstein II.
From the third crop came yet another multiple Champion, Wolkentanz. Another son,
Welt Hit O, was the 1994 Reserve Champion Three Year Old Riding Horse.
In 1995 the Weltmeyer son White Star was named Reserve Champion of the Stallion
Licensing. Another son, White Magic (out of a Bolero mare), dominated the
Stallion Performance Test.
In 1996 White Star was the German Three Year Old Riding Horse Champion, and the
Weltmeyer daughter Wildrose was named the Champion Three Year Old Riding Horse
The list continues to grow each year as Weltmeyer progeny prove themselves with
superior talent and quality."

are not required to be USEF Recorded to be ranked on the list.
However, owners of stallions are encouraged to obtain a USEF Horse ID
number, at no charge, if the stallion is not recorded. This assures
the owner that complete breeding information and registration numbers
are on file for the stallion. Once stallions are linked to their
offspring via the ID number, the list will automatically reflect
points earned by offspring.
