Brentano's Girl was bred in the UK by the well known Hanoverian breeder, Mrs E Kirkby and was purchased by our stud after a long search to find the right filly with Brentano II bloodlines.

Brentano's Girl is a very correct filly with excellent conformation and movement, and a lovely temperament. The combination of Brentano II and Weltmeyer bloodlines has proved very successful, an example being Bon Jovi, the top price horse at the Verden Elite auction in 2003 who subsequently became the 2004 Bundeschampion in the 4-year old division.

Her sire, Brentano II, was the Hanoverian Stallion of the Year 2003 at the Hanoverian Stallion Licensing in Verden, Germany. He was born in 1983, by Bolero out of Glocke (by Grande). Brentano II's damline is one of the most important for Hanoverian breeding, as it roots back to the Schumann-mare S449.

Brentano II became Stallion Licensing Champion in 1985 and was acquired by Celle State Stud. In his Stallion Performance Test, he achieved the best dressage score and finished second overall with 129.97 points. In 1986, Brentano II finished fourth in the Bundeschampionate. He was trained to Prix St Georges level and participated for many years in the Celle Stallion Parade. In 1987, Brentano II moved to a stallion station in Natbergen, and then to Ankum.

Brentano II sired 68 state premium mares and 15 licensed Hanoverian sons. Nineteen Brentano II descendants were so far sold through the auctions, amongst them Debbie McDonald's Brentina, Brasseur P, Bandito and Gestut Sprehe's Bon Jovi.

Brentina and Debbie McDonald finished fourth individually at the 2002 World Equestrian Games. Brentina's full brother Barclay II is currently being competed at Grand Prix level by Dutch Gonnelien Rothenberger. Young Rider Christian Ritter successfully competes Bernstein. Bon Jovi became 2003 Bundeschampion in the 4-year old division and 2003 World Young Horse Champion Poetin claimed the Bundeschampion's title in the 6-year old class. Poetin is by Sandro Hit out of Poesie (by Brentano II).

Her dam, Welcome, a successful mare in her own right, is by Weltmeyer. The Hanoverian sire Weltmeyer is owned by the Celle Landsgestut and was bred by Herman Meyer. Weltmeyer was Hanoverian Stallion of the Year 1998, 1986 Hanoverian Stallion Licensing Champion, 1987 German National Champion Three-Year-Old Riding Horse, 1997 Stallion Performance Test Champion and 1989 DLG Champion. From the moment Herman Meyer presented this stallion at the 1986 Stallion Approval in Verden, the judges and other breeders were dazzled by his performance. Weltmeyer is famous as a sire of champions: seven German National Champion Riding Horses (Wittinger, Weltburger, Wolkenstein II, Wolkentanz, White Star, Wildrose, and Welt Hit IV); 2001 5-year old Dressage Champion Wanesco; two Hanoverian Stallion Licensing Champions (Wittinger and Wolkentanz) and two Stallion Performance Test Champions (Wittinger and Wolkenstein II. Weltmeyer has 64 licensed sons and almost half of his mares have achieved the coveted "State Premium Mare" title in Germany. In 1997 Weltmeyer's first grandsons made their appearance with Welser (by Wolkenstein II, mare by Lanthan) reserve champion at the licensing, while the following year, Waterford (again by Wolkenstein II, mare by Matcho AA) won his licensing and Welser placed second in the performance test.

At international level, Weltmeyer descendants are achieving. Wall Street competed for Australia in the Sydney Olympics, Ellen Schulten Baumer became European Junior Rider Champion with the Weltmeyer x Marbod mare, Weserperle S and Emma Hindle competes Wie Weltmeyer at Grand Prix level and has qualified for the 2004 Olympics in Athens.

The chestnut Weltmeyer is by World Cup I, who himself has been 'Stallion of the Year'.
