Susan & Paul,
These are some pictures of our boy
taken yesterday doing a ridden display for Matthias Werner at our Trakehner
Classification day . We would like to thank our friends and customers
that came and supported us, also to all owners of Flute babies that were
presented for inspection.
Many thanks for the compliments on Flute. We were really pleased with how the
weekend went. Matthias was very complimentary about Flute and his progeny.
Flute has now been granted full approval on his ridden performance and his
progeny :-) I have attached some pictures of his progeny, who were graded and
the younger ones were evaluated, Estelle & Lady Devorow scored 54 points,
Kindred Spirit 55, Samba 55, Lambada by Arentino 56.5 & was reserve champion
of the whole tour (interestingly the champion was a filly by Arentino with 57
, and third reserve was a 2yr old by Kasimir with 56)
Flute's mare bookings vary, but it ranges from 10 to 20 mares a year.
The quality of his progeny far surpasses any other Trakehners registered. Even
part-breds are stamped by his type.
had some news regarding Flute's oldest son Eyford Fidelio (ex DV mare) in the
UK, he has been purchased by the UK based Ozzie rider Sam Griffiths, who
speaks very highly of the horse, so we are keen to see how that combination
get on. He is a sensitive horse in the dressage and jumping, but a real XC

Hi Susan and Paul,
CONGRATULATIONS!!! You must all be overjoyed, I took a
look at the video clip of Legend on your website, he looks superb, more
expressive paces and very laid-back about the whole thing, a real credit to
you. Is he a keeper?!!
My graded trakehner stallion is just fine!! I have
just started riding him again, as we need to get fit for his performance
test. He has had another good season at stud with a total of 19 mares which
is great, it was definately the right move to bring him with us, he has paid
for himself and the trip over here comfortably. His youngstock are doing
really well, with a yearling by him going supreme part-bred at the National
Arabian show under an american judge, and his oldest and only six year old
Eyford Fidelio is proving himself successful as an event horse under the
young rider Helen West who won team gold at the 2001 European young rider
championships. I have attached a picture of him.
Go Holme Trakehners!!
All the best and kind regards
Sacha and familyx
Holme Park Flute Graded Trakehner Stallion
in New Zealand - 3/4 March 2007
Dear Susan and Paul,
Great news from down under! Flute was accepted into
the trakehner stud book, he scored as follows; 9 type, 8 neck and frame, 7.5
foundation, 8 walk, 7.5 trot 7.5 canter, overall impression 8.
We also had our mares classified and Flutes progeny
evaluated, all his progeny scored 0.5 - 1 mark higher than there dam, which
is great he is improving his offspring. My yearling filly by Flute scored
the highest mark for her paces throughout the whole NZ visit of the Germans,
which was a great highlight for us, all in all a very successful weekend.
I look forward to hearing from you soon.

HOLME PARK FLUTE - SUPREME
CHAMPION SPORTS HORSE - NEW ZEALAND

owner Sacha Rowson
Many thanks for your open day DVD, I
thoroughly enjoyed watching it and was very taken with the quality of all the
youngstock, I would love to import a filly to NZ (but too expensive!!) new
bloodlines are badly needed here. Prokofiev looks superb, you must be very
excited about his future.
Flute is fine, I have started training
with a lady called Fiona Craig, who spent 17 years in England, she seems very
good, we did our first competition last week at Hawkes Bay county show, Flute
was awarded Supreme Champion Sports horse,(attachment at show) which was a
great start to his competition career here in NZ, he will now have a break to
start stud duties, I have taken on a mare from Sylvia McLean by Falkensee out
of LiebchenV by Ith.
Sylvia McLean has said that Flute would
be able to come forward for grading here, which is good news, they are hoping
to bring a judge over in 2006. I have had some good response from mare
owners, I feel that his future is bright, sport horse and trakehner breeding
is still very young here. Stallions of Flutes quality and beauty are few and
I hope all is well with you, keep me
updated on all the trakehner gossip! We will have a website for Flute up and
running next month.
