There were 5 families presented and for the third year in a row, Stoneylea Farm took the top spot with EM Stoneylea Lusenka Imp. (Lauries Crusador/Lemon Park/Grande) along with her two lovely daughters Stoneylea Francesca (Furst Nymphenburg) and EM Stoneylea Welt Princess (Weltmeyer).

The very lovely EM Stoneylea Lusenka is bred by Ilsemarie Wrede of Gut Neuensteden in Freiburg, Germany, and is from the famous old dam line of Schluppera (Stamm 1190815). She is one of the rare German Hanoverian mares imported to New Zealand and is obviously a huge asset to breeding here. Her daughters could prove to be almost as important. The superbly bred five-year-old  EM Stoneylea Welt Princess was New Zealand’s overall Young Dressage Horse Champion at the age of four in 2017 and Stoneylea Francesca was the Top Mare of the 2015 Verband tour, and her foal Stoneylea Alejandro by Don Index was awarded Premium status in the 2017 tour by Dr Ludwig Christmann.
