Dr. Ludwig Christman of the Hannoveraner Warmbloodzuchter and developer of the Stallion Book,commented:
“It is always of great interest to view the results of new entries, whose breed values are published for the first time. Waterford had a
magnificent entry. In 1998 he was the champion at the Hanoverian stallion approval. The following year he won the stallion
performance test with high scores. His high total breed value for dressage benefited from his excellent performance test result.
Offspring from his first three-year old vintage were already evaluated under saddle including thirteen, which were presented at pre-
selections for Verden's auction program.”
Nadine Capellmann purchased a four-year old Hanoverian mare by Waterford out of a Falkland dam at the Verden Elite Auction in
October,2004. "She has a super walk and canter and a very elastic trot".
