MEISTERWIND WON NUMEROUS AWARDS BOTH REGIONALLY AND NATIONALLY, INCLUDING THE AMERICAN TRAKEHNER ASSOCIATION PRIX ST. GEORGES HORSE OF THE YEAR, 1999, AND INTERMEDIARE 1 HORSE OF THE YEAR IN 2004.
ADDITIONALLY, CRAIG HECKERT, RIDING MEISTERWIND, EARNED ALL THE SCORES FOR THE UNITED STATES DRESSAGE FEDERATION BRONZE AND SILVER, AND GOLD MEDALS!
MEISTERWIND ALSO EARNED THE PRIX ST. GEORGES AND INTERMEDIARE 1 PERFORMANCE CERTIFICATE FROM THE USDF AS WELL. HE WAS SOUND UNTIL THE DAY HE DIED, NEVER REQUIRING MAINTAINENCEDRUGS OR SUPPLEMENTS!
Meisterwind was a leading sire of over 50% GOLD MEDAL PREMIUM foals, many who have gone on to successful careers in Dressage, Hunters, Jumpers and Eventing. The Meisterwind offspring are sound, sane and RIDEABLE for all levels of riders. He has been so impressive as a sire that in 2002 we were asked if we would consider leasing Meisterwind to stand at stud in GERMANY. What a compliment to Meisterwind! We could not bear to part with him and made the decision to keep him in the US.
Pictured below are a few of Meisterwind's offspring.
We have many of his daughters in our program and they are producing incredible offspring.
