Peri went to her first show, the large and competitive Dressage at Lexington Breed show. She showed that she can combine her sensitivity with trainability and evidenced a huge desire to please her people and her handlers. We were all so proud of her, and she rewarded us by placing first in the Hanoverian Individual Breed Class against Hanoverians of all ages and sexes with a score of 77,3%. That score was the highest given to any in-hand horse shown by either judge. Quite the accomplishment for a yearling!
Judges comments included: Strong foundation, clear and balanced gaits, attractive type with good presence. We are thrilled with the way this little girl is maturing!
Peri received extremely good comments at her branding at the end of October. The inspectors present were George Walker, Jr. and Gerd Zuther.
Very elegant, attractive, and well put-together filly
Very harmonious foal
Very high-scoring movement
Good self-carriage and very good forwards-upwards movement
Good fore and hindlegs, good topline with nicely rounded croup area
This filly's neckset is outstanding. The walk is huge, well-defined and rolling. Her trot is uphill and free up front, with pronounced suspension. The canter is uphill and well underneath herself. She should mature just under 16.3.
Peri's bloodlines will permit the breeder to use nearly any sireline in Germany or North America. She descends from an extremely important damline in Lower-Saxony. This line has produced the stallion mothers/Performance horse producers DLG Goldlady, SPS Worms and SPS Fenjala. From them descend the stallions Argentan I and II, and Frenchman I & II, Western Star and Downtown.
Peri is W/T/C under saddle, and beginning lateral work. She has been entered into the Main Studbook of the AHS and is Elite Eligible with an inspection score of 7.33 - achieving an 8 for her head, saddle position, walk, correctness of gaits - all other scores are 7's.
Peri has been FULLY nominated to the International Hunter Futurity
It's all there: forwards/upwards movement, elasticty, a quick hindleg, well underneath herself plus sensitivity and an unceasing desire to please.
