Our Horses

Quality Breeds Quality ... And Here's Proof!

The founding mares of Willow Downs pioneered staunch dam lines that now sustain the stud's broodmare herd as a forward-thinking generation-based breeding program. These mares are the single most important key to the Willow Downs breeding program. The paddocks at Willow Downs are filled with the best performance genetics in the world, and we are excited to provide these horses for Australian Equestrian enthusiasts. Below we introduce prominent members of the Willow Downs broodmare band.

Womina WD

Sire: Weltmeyer
Dam: Harlequin Fox (Sequalo xx / Handy Proverb xx)  

Womina WD's sire, Weltmeyer, single-handedly reshaped the Hanoverian breed.
The champion of his licensing in Verden, winner of his stallion performance test in
Adelheisdorf and 1998 "Hanoverian Stallion of the Year".

Weltmeyer has produced many successful Grand Prix competitors. Isabell Werth
dominated the international scene with War-um Nicht, Martin Schaudt represented
Germany at the Sydney Olympics on Weltall, while Emma Hindle represented Britain
at the Athens Games on Wie Weltmeyer. Weltmeyer has been a very important sire
for Australian dressage riders also. Kristy Oatley rode Rosemount Wallstreet
internationally, while Brett Parbery has had two Grand Prix competitors by
Weltmeyer, the black stallion Whisper, and more recently DP Weltmeiser.

Weltmeyer produced 70 licensed sons, but was even better known as a dominant
sire of broodmares. As a Weltmeyer daughter, this makes Womina WD a valuable
asset to the Willow Downs breeding program.
