„CAN’T HELP SINGING…“ GMHA DRESSAGE DAYS JULY 23 – 25, 2004
by Anne Tracy
Susan Jaccoma saluted the judges after her Prix St. George test on Harmony’s Weismuller and with a euphoric smile exclaimed, “You have not idea what fun that was!” The judges apparently shared her euphoria – how could they not? – and have her a 70.5 score in a large class of entries at the annual GMHA Dressage Days, July 23 – 25, 2004, in a first-place tie with Sharon McCusker and Maestro.
Harmony’s Weismuller is a 7-year-old chestnut Hanoverian stallion by Weltmeyer; he has the definitive stallion presence without all the single-minded stallion characteristics, though he’s not above an occasional whinny to the girls in the warm-up ring! He’s obviously a show-off, but Susan’s aim of keeping him fresh and happy is evident; with a sunny-tempered élan and a relaxed tail, he flowed through the PSG movements with the same “isn’t it fun” enthusiasm as his rider. They also won the next day’s Intermediare 1 with a 67.50.
Weismuller, owned by Harmony Sport Horses in Colorado, is the first stallion Susan has campaigned with. She’s had him 14 months and can pinpoint the day a few months ago when he essentially said “OK, I love you, we belong together.”
“He would trot through fire for me, he’s always asking “What’ll we do now?” He’s the kindest most perfect horse, and we’re having a real blast together; I can barely wipe the grin off! Like any stallion, he can be a little opinionated sometimes, but every day he puts on his business suit and gives 800%.” Susan and Weissmuller have only competed three times – no working up through the levels for all to see his progress – and GMHA’s PSG Friday was only his fifth FEI test; they showed once in Florida, at UNH, and at a little show in Maine near Susan’s farm in Arundel.

WEDGEWOOD LADY is also the sister of four Verden auction horses:

GLENBURNIE by Goldfasan *1987 – successful up to medium show jumping level.
MAI TAI by Mangan *1991 – successful up to elementary dressage level.
Last but not least WEDGEWOOD LADY is the sister of WONDERBRA by Walt Disney II *1993 – At her mare performance test, she achieved the best final score of all mares competing for the Lüneburg regional breeding district. High placings up to medium dressage level.
SPM Bullerbue - Embodies Hanoverian Breeding History
State Premium Mare BULLERBUE is the dam of WEDGEWOOD LADY, and she embodies Hanoverian breeding history. She won various divisions at mare shows, and her trot was judged with a 9.0. At the Louis-Wiegels-Show, she was shown with the family of her dam, State Premium Mare DOMÄNENFEST. The family was awarded a prize. Apart from that, State Premium Mare BULLERBUE won riding horse ability classes and tournaments. She is also the sister of DISKRET by Dirk one of the most successful dressage horses in the United States.
Diskret - One of the Most Successful Dressage Horses in the USA
DISKRET by Dirk, *1979, 17.3 h.h., Hanoverian
A small riding horse collection completed the stallion licensing in Verden in 1982. The top horse of this collection was DISKRET by Dirk out of SPM Domaenenfest by Domaenenrat. Following a long odyssey, the liver chestnut gelding was finally sold to Regina Galoppi-Benfante, New York. With the help of her trainer Karen Rohlf, she was the dominating rider at American Prix St. Georg competitions for junior and young riders. They won countless championships and achieved numerous USDF awards. In 1992, they were first at fourth level and in 1993 first at Prix St. Georg level in the United States. Participating at the most well known shows in the United Stated counts among their most wonderful experiences: Dressage at Devon CDI, The North American Young Riders Championship (part of the winning Bronze Medal team of 1993), USET Festival of Champions (winners of the Young Rider team test in 1993) and The Florida Show circuit. Regina writes: "For these successes, I own thanks to DISKRET, he was "one in a million" - a compliment for the breed of this horse with a heart of gold".

The Offspring Are Also Excellent Jumpers
But the offspring out of this dam line are also excellent jumpers. GINA by Goldfasan out of State Premium Mare BULLERBUE won jumper tests of medium level (USA: third level). Under the former German Champion Carsten-Otto Nagel, GOLDLEHN by Goldfasan out of BUDO (full sister of State Premium Mare BULLERBUE) won advanced level show jumping competitions.
A sound conformation, longevity and an excellent fertility distinguish most of the show mares out of this dam line. The latest show mare, SOPHIA LOREN by Sherlock Homes, won the division of two-year-old mares in Rodewald 1996, the division of three-year-old mares one year later as well as the division of four-year-old mares in 1998. SOPHIA LOREN was also placed at the Louis-Wiegels-Show in 1997 as well as at the Regional Mare Show in Nienburg 1996. Apart from that, she successfully competed at riding horse ability classes.
