Fanfare MH is by Furstenball (Old.) out of Danzare (Dancier/Weltmeyer) Born at Matthews Hanoverians in Awanui in October 2009.
She was top of her year in the 2017 Mare Studbook inspections during the visit by Dr Ludwig Christmann from Verden and was a very close second to the older mare Decadance MH (Dacaprio/Anamour) in the Mare Performance test in the same year. In 2018 she won the Four Year old section at three YDH shows – Bates Nationals in Feilding, The Horse of the Year Show and finally The Future Stars Show in Taupo. It was at this show that she became overall Young Dressage Horse Champion. Her final work out was nothing short of breath taking – with a lot of freedom and power showing from such a young horse.
Her rider is Hannah Burden – stable rider for Matthews Hanoverians.
During the Mare Performance test, Wendi Williamson had high praise for her rideability and soft swinging back. Fanfare MH has also won Level 1 Championships at Regional North Island Championships and Reserve Champion Level 1 at Horse of the Year Show 2018.
The results speak for themselves – this is a VERY good mare for the future after a very commendable first season’s competition. She is bred along the EXACT same lines as Falihandro, the Australian bred Hanoverian Licensed stallion that was recently awarded a Weltmeyer Prize in Verden.
