This Rubignon x Weltlan cross has been an excellent one. Weltlan has had four foals from this cross already and we haven't been disappointed. She has had a black colt, two black fillies, and bay colt - all very similar in type with great movement and super dispositions. The first, Ryszard, is in dressage training now and progressing beautifully. The second, Ritanza, a black filly, was sold to a breeder in California. The third, Rendezvous ESH, is thriving with his dressage rider/breeder, Danee Rudy, who purchased him as a stallion prospect, and showing sucessfully on the line. In 2015, Rendezvous ESH was the site champion for the AHS futurity at Hilltop Farm. The fourth, Reva, is a gorgeous black filly that is developing into a gorgeous young dressage prospect.
Weltlan is a great mother, easy foaler, and is easy to breed. She traveled around with her foals and was a joy to haul to the shows.
