Salvador V Retires to Winley Farm
Johannes Eshing's top horse Salvador V (Calvados X Voltaire) has been retired at the age of 17. He has had a very successful career up to SCI5* level, winning classes in Donaueschingen, Vienna, Kiel, Munich, Norten-Hardenberg, Munster as well as being part of Germany's winning Nations Cup team in Wellington, FL. During 2016 Ehning and Salvador V were 2nd in Offenburg Grand Prix and after that they won one class in Norten-Hardenberg,
Judith Goelkel, Salvador V's owner says, "I will now send Salvador V to Winley Farm, the family yard in New York, where he will have a wonderful retirement." She adds "It is sad that we have reached the end of such an awesome career, but I'm very happy that we can retire him when he still is as healthy and fit as ever".
Peter Wylde Arrives at Winley Farm!
Show jumping rider Peter Wylde has returned to the United States after spending much of the last decade in Europe. He will stable his horses at Winley Farm in Millbrook New York.
Peter began his equestrian career with Fran and Joe Dotoli, under whose guidance he won the 1982 ASPCA Maclay National Championship at Madison Square Garden.
He was a member of the United States Gold Medal Olympic team in Athens, Greece, in 2004 aboard Fein Cera, owned by Sarah Willeman and Turnabout Farm. In 1999, riding Macanudo DeNiro, he won Individual and Team Silver Medals at the Pan American Games in Winnipeg, Canada, and he 2002, he was awarded the Individual Bronze Medal at the World Equestrian Games in Jerez, Spain, where Fein Cera was named Best Horse in the Final.
The former President's Cup champion has won Grand prix and World Cup competitions around the world, including Paris, France, Mechelen, Belgium and Dortmund, Germany. We welcome Peter and his fine horses to Winley Farm!
We are proud to announce that Commentator, a bay Holsteiner colt foaled at Winley Farm in 2009 and exported to Germany as a yearling, is now an approved Holsteiner Stallion! His dam Utopia (Corrado I/Landgraf I) was also foaled at Winley Farm. His sire Carvallo, (Carthago/Lavall II) bred by Manfred Birchler, was purchased by the Goelkels and competed successfully in the US before returning to Germany, where he still competes.
Commentator will combine his stallion duties with a career in the jumper ring!
Welcome Princess Hawk and Lady Kestril!
8/01/10: A lovely mother/daughter pair of Newfoundland ponies arrived at Winley Farm last week, courtesy of Equine Rescue Inc. (www.equine-rescue.org). They are presently turned out with the Winley Farm donkeys, Dusty Juan and Red Rascal, who have fallen quite in love with them. Their job here at Winley will be to accept hugs, kisses and carrots from Ester and Giovanni Mazzarelli’s daughter Carina, along with the occasional pony ride. Information about this little- known breed can be found at www.newfoundlandpony.com. Here’s a sample:
“The ancestors of the Newfoundland Pony arrived with the Island’s early settlers from the British Isles. These ancestors were primarily, Exmoor, Dartmoor and New Forest ponies and to a lesser extent, Welsh Mountain, Galloway (extinct), Highland and Connemara ponies. They were hardy creatures, already well adapted to the harsh climate of the islands of the North Atlantic. Over subsequent centuries, and with little outside influence, the hardiest of these early pony immigrants to Newfoundland interbred and eventually evolved into one common pony type, now recognized as the Newfoundland Pony.”
Mares to Germany
In November we shipped three young home bred mares from Winley Farm to Marcus and Johannes Ehning in Germany to begin the training which we hope will lead to show ring success! Judith reports that Valeur du Ruisseau (2005 Caligo-Diablesse du Ruisseau), Unlimited (2004 Caretino-Kassina), and Utopia (2004 Corrado I-Hollunder II), are already going nicely under tack, and we are sure they will continue to be good students.
