Qredit Wins the 70-Day Stallion Test
What a way to end the year! The 2012 North American Stallion Test just finished this weekend and we couldn't be more pleased with the results for Qredit when he finished as the Dressage Champion & Overall Champion at the the 2012 70-Day North American Stallion Test! He earned a 135.93 for his Dressage Index (1st), 113.16 for a Jumping Index (6th), and 126.59 Overall (1st).
The team at Silver Creek did an excellent job caring for the stallions and we were impressed with the training program that Harald Hoffmann, the Training Director, had designed to prep each stallion in the best possible way for the finals. Natascha Feld was Qredit's rider throughout the testing and did an exemplary job showing him off. We are grateful to everyone at the testing who made this such a positive experience. Thank you!
This year there was an overall high-quality of stallions in the testing, including some phenomenal jumpers. Bon Balou was Jumper Champion and Bliss MF was Overall Reserve Champion. The final Testing Days were exciting to watch and it was especially noteworthy that many of the stallions attending were bred in North America. Congratulations to all of the owners and breeders of these stallions. It will be exciting to watch them and their offspring in the coming years.
Qredit was presented at the conclusion of the test for Hanoverian approval and we are very happy to report that he is now approved with the AHS and the Hanoverian Verband, opening up further options for our breeders.
