Wolkentanz became Champion Stallion at the Verden licensing in 1993. One year later in 1994 he won the three-year-old stallions classification at the Federal Championships of German Riding Horses, and was runner-up in the stallion performance test, scoring a convincing 140.53 points in the dressage category. In 1995 Wolkentanz was honored as the best stallion of his age-group.
Like his father, Wolkentanz has excellent movement, rideability and a supreme talent for dressage. Wolkentanz is well known for his lovely performances as a member of the Celle Dressage Quadrille. His offspring are generally very typey, elegant and with excellent movement and temperaments. In 2001 he produced both the champion colt and filly of the German Foal Championships--with both scoring perfect 10's on their gaits.
And then Weltmeyer. What more can be said about Weltmeyer? He is a legend. As the AHS put it, "Weltmeyer continues to almost single-handedly reshape the Hanoverian breed." He was the 1986 winner of the stallion licensing in Verden, and the 1987 winner of the stallion performance test in Adelheidsdorf. In the same year Weltmeyer also won the three-year-old stallions classification at the Federal Championships of German Riding Horses in Warendorf.
In 1988 he was honored in Verden as best stallion of his age-group and awarded with the "Freiherr von Stenglin-Prize". One year later he became DLG Champion 1989 in Frankfurt. And last but not least he became "Hanoverian Stallion of the Year" in 1998. As of today, Weltmeyer has produced 70 licensed sons, all of them are excellent stallions. A study of the pedigrees of many internationally prominent Hanoverian dressage horses reveals that many are either by sons of Weltmeyer or out of one of his daughters.
At the 2002 Ratje Niebuhr-Show, Weltmeyer was the leding sire. Out of 51 mares which placed first through third in 17 classes, Weltmeyer sired eight, including champion SPS Wiami and and reserve champion Wicke. Overall, his blood was present in one third of all the mares, by from 25% to 50% percent. When it comes to capacity for dressage and the temperament necessary for a top competitor, this stallion simply cannot be beaten. In 2005, Weltmeyer received a Breeding Value Index of 152 points, with an assurance of 99% heritability, from the German Equestrian Federation.
