Congratulations to Matthews Hanoverians – breeders of seven of these wonderful horses. Fanfare MH also won the 5 year old section of the Young Dressage Horse competition.
Hanoverian NZ sponsored the Grand Prix Special - runner up Don Amour MH (Don Frederico/Anamour) Wendi Williamson and 6th place Aztec Lad (Anamour/Lavinsky xx) Paula Stuart.
The winner Andreas was also by Anamour out of a Dynamit mare - and third placed Raukura Satori MH (De Niro/Genius) were sadly not Hanoverian birth registered.
