There is hardly a more classic arena for presenting stallions on hard surfaces than the triangle arena in Verden, Germany. It is a very intimate and has an unmistakable touch of tradition, and breeders, owners and spectators stand shoulder by shoulder as the young stallions are being presented.

At this year’s Stallion Licensing eleven dressage stallions were proclaimed premium stallions in a collection that was somewhat uneven. The collection of jumper stallions was more uniform, and eight stallions were proclaimed premium stallions.

Londonderry, the chestnut son of legendary Lauries Crusador xx, was proclaimed 2013 Hanoverian Stallion of the Year, and he obviously enjoyed the jubilation and applause in Niedersachsenhalle. The golden chestnut is one of the most important stallions in the Hanoverian breeding, carrying the valuable genes of his sire Lauries Crusador xx who only died four days before, at the age of 28. Londonderry’s breeder Klaus-Hermann Ehlen was happy to receive an oil painting of the artist Manfred Busemann and a well-endowed check.
