This young fellow is as handsome as they come with all the charm of his sire, Widmark. This cross (Widmark x Downtown Delight/Don Schufro) is a proven one, consistently producing athletic and great-minded horses. Walleye will be an absolute delight for anyone to develop and should have the temperament for a capable amateur even at a young age.
Sire ES Widmark has been proving his worth for nearly two decades, siring horse after horse with great athleticism and absolutely impeccable temperaments. Widmark was one of nine stallions designated as premium out of 100+ stallions at the 2000 Hanoverian licensing in Verden. He was third in the 70-Day Test at Adelheidsdorf with an overall score of 129.88 (jumping: 101.09; dressage: 136.11) with a score of 9 on both trot and canter, and a Bronze medalist in the three year old stallion class at the Bundeschampionat (German Federal Riding Horse Championships) in 2001, receiving a 9 on his walk. Under trainer and rider Meg Williams, Widmark established himself as a top competitor in the dressage arena, continuing up the levels to Grand Prix. Now retired from competition, he was a sheer delight to ride and to train. He walked out of his stall ready and wanting to work every single day.
Dam Downtown Delight (Don Schufro/Londonderry/Wittinger) has been an exceptional and reliable broodmare since 2013, consistently throwing talented and good-hearted offspring. She earned her Elite status in her Mare Performance Test under an amateur rider with a score of 7.16, and she is a pleasure to handle and work with.
