GISELLA
(Guarantor x Werther's Brigitta/Werther/Akzent II) Breeder: Barbara Schmidt, DVM, Bridlewood Farm, Union, KY. Gisella was sold to adult amatuer riders Joel and Maibeth Esselman of Milan, IN to be raised as a dresage prospect. We are pleased to announce that we have been able to purchase Gisella to join our brood mare band and follow in her mother's footsteps as an important part of our breeding program. We are very thankful to the Esselmans for this opportunity and we look forward to having both Guarantor's and Werther's Brigitta's distinguished bloodlines in our breeding program.

Gisella is pictured at left with her 2010 Colt by Dacaprio.

She has been bred to Fabuleux after producing four beautiful foals with Dacaprio. We are excited to announce that this cross is absolutely stunning as well!

Werther's Brigitta - Dam of Gisella
Werther's Brigitta was a highly successful broodmare with her previous owner, Holsteiner breeder Karen Reid, Fox Fire Farm, Fox Island, WA. While at Fox Fire Farm, Brigitta was inspected with the American Holstein Horse Association and the ISR/Oldenburg N.A. and was chosen as a Premium Mare in both of their Studbooks.

She received Reserve Champion Honors at the AHHA inspection and was also the Reserve Champion Mare at the American Hanoverian Association inspection held at Bridlewood Farm. She was inspected as an 11 year old and received the overall score of 7.2. This made her eligible for Elite Mare Candidate status with the AHS. At her AHS Inspection she received the excellent score of 8 for Impusion/Elasticity (Trot), in addition to the outstanding score of 9 for her feminine head and expression.

Werther's Brigitta consistently produces beautifully correct, athletic foals that are known for their kind, willing temperament and generous character.

Brigitta's sire Werther was awarded the first Hanoverian Stallion of the Year Award in Germany due to his top FN rank for siring dressage, materiale, jumping and driving horses. He held this very high ranking for nearly a decade, earning the title of "Versatile Werther." His broodmares and their daughters are sought throughout Europe and the U.S.
