100 Day Test Score 111.35 Muenster Germany 1985
 
Liver Chestnut - 16.2 hands
 

 

Weltstern was born in Cloppenburg Germany in 1982 and imported to the US after his approval as an Oldenburg stallion through the 100 Day Test in Muenster Germany in 1985 with a very respectable score of 111.35 points. Weltstern is an exceptional stallion with extraordinary bloodlines. Weltstern carries the blood of such influential stallions as Welt As, Ferdinanad, Don Carlos, Furioso II and Absatz. The dam lines in his pedigree are remarkable as well. At least seven of the mares in his pedigree are State Premium mares and many of these mares also carry the coveted title of DLG winner as well, a very prestigious honor. He is the half brother of Bonfire, ridden by Anky von Grunsven to numerous wins in dressage, including the Olympics and the World Cup .

Weltstern's show career started at the age of 14 where he started at third level and competed to Intemediare I with scores in the 60s. Weltstern has sired three stallions approved for breeding through the 100 day test. All three stallions scored over one hundred at their testing. One more son of Weltstern's is gaining his approval through performance records and has already been awarded a breeding license through Rheinland Pfalz Saar.

Weltstern continues to produce many premium foals and top performance horses today. Three out of five of his foals presented at the 2002 ISR/Oldenburg NA inspection at Chestnut Lawn in Remington VA were premium foals. He also sired the second highest scoring mare at the same inspection. Weltstern is the grandsire of Rachmaninoff, (by Riverman out of Windsong by Weltstern) who was the 2002 USDF Horse of the Year, the 2002 USDF All Breed champion and the AHS Champion colt and was the highest scoring colt in the country! Rachmaninoff's full sister, Phantasia was the AHS 2001 champion of the year.

Everyone who has worked with Weltstern has been impressed by his wonderful disposition. He is tractable, friendly, cooperative, and personable. Along with these traits, he passes exceptional movement to his offspring. He is approved for breeding with ISR/Oldenburg NA and Oldenburg Verband.

Weltstern passed away in September of 2012 of natural causes at the age of 30. Rest in peace Weltstern.
