Fabulous Furstenball Old. (Furst Heinrich Westf. /Donnerhall Old.) – for many years he has been at the top of Hanoverian Verband the top list for Type and Rideability.
At Takapoto last weekend during the Pacific League World Cup Finals show, 7 of his progeny competed and demonstrated those traits over and over to produce some very top performances with high scores. There were 11 first or second places in the different levels and one title winner in Preliminary, Furst Klasse MH (Furstenball Old. /Totilas) Wendi Williamson B. Matthews Hanoverians and one in Advanced Medium with Stoneylea Felicio (Furstenball Old. /Dream Boy) R. Zoie Gray O. Christine Weal Equestrian B. Stoneylea Farm.
Fanciful MH (Furstenball Old. /Soliman de Hus) R. Casey Burton B. Matthews Hanoverians, (pictured below) was denied the title by a very small margin in Novice level by yet another Matthews Hanoverians bred horse, Bently MH (Benicio/Gymnastik Star) and Vanessa Way.
In the Advanced Medium there was strong competition between Stoneylea Felicio (Furstenball Old. /Dream Boy) Zoie Gray B. Stoneylea Farm, and Falcon O Rhein. (Furstenball Old. /Lessing) Candice Nichol B. Dr Anne Stewart. Pi.ctured below
