AHS Inspection in Colorado at Harmony Sport Horses
8/12/09 Six Hanoverian mares were inspected. Two Non-Hanoverian mares were inspected. Seven foals were presented. Two mares did the MPT. Judges were Gerd Zuther and Gerhard Senckenberg. Secretary was Cathy Tucker-Slaterbeck.
As I was a participant, I didn't catch results from all classes. Perhaps someone else can fill in the gaps.

Which horses were yours dbts? I had the Selle Francais mare and her Landkonig colt that were scratched...my mare got injured a couple of days before and was completely lame. Go figure. I'm going to take the pair to the Oldenburg inspection in a couple of weeks, assuming the mare recovers fine. I already had the day off from work so we went to watch anyway.
My mare didn't go, so only one non Hano mare was presented; a TB that received a 7.0
The Lingh colt was super and named top colt. Of course the dam was really nice but that was a great cross.
There was a photographer but I'm not sure that she has a website.
ahf: Yes, there was a photographer and I signed up with her. Don't know her name as we just signed a list.
Krallen: That explains why I couldn't find your Voltaire mare & colt! Good luck at the GOV inspection. Thanks for adding some more results info.
My mare is Daisy Noir by Donnerwetter. She is a second generation mare from my breeding program. I have photographs, but can't post them here. If someone wants to help out with that, I can email them to you.
I've been an inspection photographer many times. These days people will not commit to buying photographs because maybe hubby or their friend will get digital photos and they don't commit to the inspection photographer.
Then it turns out they don't have any suitable photographs but the inspection photographer didn't take photos either.
I really should start my own thread on this but folks, please support the people who buy the good photo equipment and take the time to learn what constitutes a good photo.
I am a good photographer but will happily pay the going price of a photographer who gets pix of one of my horses at a show or inspection.
Krallen: No, Daisy Noir is not in foal. I have her in dressage training with a professional. If I still own her next spring, I will breed her for a 2011 foal and she will take the MPT next summer in order to complete the requirements for full Elite mare status.
Photographs of her at inspection are now posted on my website under "Horses for Sale".
