He is a very good mover with correct conformation and exceptional jumping ability.

This is an exceptionally talented young horse with the potential for the top levels of the sport.

Wayana K (pronounced Vi-Ana) is a 16.1hh 2004 St. Premium Hanoverian mare with an impressive pedigree. Sired by the stallion Worldly (Weltmeyer) and out of a Matcho AA mare Wayana was imported from Germany after her successful performance test in 2007 as a foundation broodmare here in British Columbia where she has produced 3 beautiful fillies and 1 colt. She transitioned to a performance horse in 2016.
Wayana is a perfect horse! She has 3 quality gaits, steady rhythmical movement, willingness to learn, a very powerful yet ridable jump and all done with a happy and eager to please attitude. In the short time I have had her she has won the hearts of everyone in the barn with her personality, easy way of being around her and calmness. She is easy to work with on the ground, has excellent ground manners and takes everything in stride.
Wayana has schooled Novice and some Training cross country jumps and has shown no issues with any at this time! We have also competed her at the dressage championships at the 1st level in BC and her scores we impressive ranginging from 68% to 72%. Although she is new to eventing, she is a very straight forward ride and has limited miles on her legs!
Trailers by herself or with others, excellent in turnout with a friend, clips, ties, bathes, good for farrier and vet…. NO bad habits at all!
Wayana truly is a once in a lifetime horse. I have been riding her for almost 3 months and she has continually impressed me with each task I set for her including her successful debut as a Novice eventer. She is so kind, has a soft eye and gentle way of being around her. We would love to see her excel with someone who will provide her with an excellent, forever home. She will not disappoint! Located in British Columbia, Canada.

Imported from Germany last year, he’s established himself quickly as a safe and reliable mount that always catches the judges eye.
Uncomplicated enough for a young rider or amateur and would make a perfect horse for a young rider to aim for a top placing at young riders next year and beyond.

He’s super easy. Hacks out bareback. Can be on the back burner or the front burner, he’s the same horse day after day whether at home or a show. Located in Pennsylvania.
