WEF Breeding Program


Rania and Fallon, April 2013

  • AHHA approved mare

  • Stamm 6085

  • Saluut 2/MeranoE/Landgraf

June 2013 Update:  Rania's foal Falon, born 4/14/13. Black (will be great) filly (Dakota VDL-SALUUT II-MERANO E). She is such a fun, entertaining, loving little foal!

June 2013 Update:  Rania's next breeding will be to the impressive German, Holsteiner Stallion Cormint. Cormint, reserve champion stallion of the 2004 Neumünster approval, was described as, "highly modern and a sport horse type extraordinaire. The darkbay middle size stallion always presented himself with lots of energy and proved a superior representative of his age group. He was one of the favorites due to his correct conformation and his sound limbs, boasting high-quality basic paces with enormous impetus and impulsion at the trot. He demonstrates his athleticism with super technique and boundless ability over the jumps."

Cormint has already sired three licensed Holsteiner stallions: Centurion, Corinth and Chupamint, and has also sired Captain Sparrow, the 2012 champion of the 5-year-old jumper Bundeschampionat whose impressive performance under his rider Henrik von Eckermann earned him top marks.

With his impressive bloodlines, talented foals, and his own accomplished showing career - Cormint performed impressively and collected several wins in young jumper classes at A through M level with Philipp Schulze -we are very excited to add a Cormint foal to the WEF family!

May 2013 Update:  New video of Rania's foal, Fallon ...

April 2013 Update:  Rania had her foal on 4/14.  She's a beautiful black filly (will be grey) named Fallon (Dakota VDL-Saluut II-Merano E). She is by Dakota VDL (Hyperion Stud) and is a member of his first foal crop here!  Both mom and baby are doing great.  She is athletic and quick ... zooming around in true Holsteiner fashion - leaping and bucking!

Rania has produced four wonderful foals already and was recently bred to Larimar, sire of last year's Seigerhengst. Rania's most notable foal is Catano by Cathalido, bred by Silver Creek Farms and owned by W. Peralta. Rania's motherline has produced horses at the absolute top of the sport and they include none other than: Olympic Corlandus, Hilltops Cabaret, Lenz - Land of Kings (1st Horse to jump 7'2"), VDL London, and Saluut (Sire of Saluut II and 2 Olympic champions).  All these horses derive from the Blue Hen mare, Austria, which resides in Rania twice.



June 2013 Update:  Bristol's foal, Cailan, born 5/14/13.  Bay colt (Contefino/Campesino/Merano E).

May 2013 Update:  Bristol delivered a healthy colt! Bristol was a maiden, and everything progressed smoothly, with me and my staff doing the delivery ourselves! Kudos to everyone who helped out! He is a very leggy dark brown foal with a black dorsal stripe - may end up being a grey. He is already showing a fabulous effortless canter around his stall - flying changes and all!  He should mature to at least 16.3h. Stay tuned for pictures and video!

May 2013 Update:  Bristol is less than a month away from her foaling date. We are eagerly awaiting her Contefino foal!

April 2013 Update:  We eagerly await Bristol's foal who is due on May 23rd.  Bristol (Campesino -Caracas -Merano E) is a maiden.  She is turning 4 this spring and Liz will be breaking her in the fall once the foal is weaned, and she will be out competing in 2014!

Sept. 2012 Update:  Bristol is in foal and is due May 23, 2013.

May 2012 Update:  The latest addition to the WEF broodmare band has arrived! Her name is Bristol (Campesino /Caracas/Merano - stamm 730b).  The plan is to breed Bristol to the renowned Holsteiner stallion Contefino for a 2013 foal (standing at Royal Oaks Farm, CA). This combination should produce an incredible baby, very modern and extremely athletic.  Fingers crossed!!

And check out Contefino ... 



  • Epona is Rania's 2012 foal, born 5/10/12

  • Stamm 6085

  • Quinar/Saluut 2/Landgraf

Epona was also a Futurity winner out of 100 foals that were presented.

 In Holstein, Germany:

November 2013:

Liz's New Colt (2013, Casall/Quinar/Cassini I) in Holstein! Spectacular!

The 2nd part of this video is Liz's 2-year old, Canturo/Acorado/Landgraf mare who will be prepped to go to her mare performance test this coming summer, and will also be bred this spring. She is a premium filly out of Traviata, a 52 Bonit mare. She is from stamm 776 - one of the most successful mare lines in the world, and was bred by the breeders of the renowned stallion Ramiro.  Also of note:  her 3/4 brother was champion foal in Holstein for 2011(the same year she was born). We look forward to her progress, and to her progeny being every bit as spectacular as she is!

This year’s Siegerhengst (champion stallion) in Holstein by Casall.  A half-brother to my colt in Holstein (Casall/Quinar/Cassini I).  Casall sons have been Siegerhengst or reserve Siegerhengst for the last three years, commanding between 400,000 to 600,000 euro at the auction held immediately following the Keuring.  They now limit Casall's breeding to only approved Holsteiner mares breeding in Holstein, and only 300 mares.


2-year-old Filly

  • Out of a 52 Bonit mare

  • Stamm 776

  • Canturo/Acorado/Landgraf 

April 2013 Update:  In Holstein, Germany: Liz's 2 yo mare (Canturo-Acorado-Landgraf) will be prepared for her mare performance test (MPT) next spring. This filly is from a very successful mare line, Stamm 776 (Ramiro).  She is the first foal out of a 52 bonit mare. Liz has high hopes for her and believes she will achieve states premium status. She is an incredible mover, very elastic and suspended in her trot, and super balanced in canter ... she will have a HUGE jump in her! (Watch for her video!)

VINARA (8-year-old 50 Bonit Mare)
  • Stamm 8768
  • Quinar/Cassini 1/Latino
  • Has produced 3 premium foals

May 2013 Update:  Vinara's colt will be going for his approvals in June - we're hoping he will be a Premium! (video coming soon)

Vinara's Colt, May 2013

April 2013 Update:  In Holstein, Germany, Vinara (Quinar-Cassini I-Latino) just gave birth to a beautiful colt (Casall-Quinar-Cassini I) on 4/19. He is a leggy bay with three socks and a narrow blaze like his phenom jumper sire, Casall la Silla (2nd worldwide in jumpers). It's very exciting because no one has this combination and, given Quinar's passing last year, he is of particular significance.
