1997 KWPN Ster Mare

Preference continues to be a favorite mare for breeders and visitors. She is a very beautiful lady, smooth in her conformation, with active hind leg and good freedom and expression of movement. Her colt by Don Schufro in 2005 was awarded Premium status by the German Oldenburg Verband. In three frozen semen breedings in 2005, she produced four embryos, three of which were born in 2006.

At the September 2003 Oldenburg Verband Inspection, hosted by Yancey Farms, judges Evelin Vollstedt and Fritz Einhaus judged a total of 45 horses. Of the 21 mares evaluated, 20 were approved into the Main Mare Book. The high score of 7.7 went to my own KWPN mare, Preference by Weyden out of Inea by Daimler. She is a superb mare that showed excellent type, suspension and beauty.  This score tied her for high score in the country that year. Dr. Vollstedt also said that this is the high score in the country for a non-Oldenburg mare.

In 2006, this same mare was the high scoring Non-Hanoverian mare in the country for the American Hanoverian Society and tied for top place of all mares in the country. She went on to win S.E. Regional Champion of the Cosequin/USDF Sporthorse Breeding Championships.  The pedigree of Preference combines the strong Hanoverian dressage and Olympic Champion, Jonggors Weyden with athletic KWPN blood.

She had a spectacular filly by Samarant, “Sambora” and a darling filly by Briar named “Bon-Bon.” Both of these fillies were presented to the German Oldenburg Verband and were awarded Premium status. She had a handsome and fun colt by the Dutch stallion “Sandreo” whose new owner registered with the KWPN NA. She had Lord Leo by Lord Sinclair in 2007 and Quinelise by Quaterback in March 2008.  She also produced the wonderful colt Wellington, by Wynton in 2009 and the incredible colt Amadeus by Ampere in 2011.  Preference produced the equally magnificent filly Izarra, by Ampere, the #3 Top Foal for 2013.  After producing two such incredible Ampere foals, Preference was bred back to Ampere and produced the lovely bay colt Jodocus FFF in 2014.  In 2015 she produced a lovely bay filly Karolina by Negro. For 2018 she's confirmed in foal Vitalis.
