At the British breeders’ awards dinner held at the City Grange Hotel in London on Saturday, 11 January, Woodlander Stud‘s Dornroschen came out on top in the Horse & Hound Outstanding Mare Award category.

The owner of Woodlander Stud, Lynne Crowden (pictured, with H&H’s managing editor Karen Spinner), bought Dornroschen (Dimaggio/Caprimond) in-foal from Brightwells Auction and the mare went on to produce the double World young horse champion, Woodlander Farouche.

Dornroschen herself is a successful international small tour horse and both she and Farouche are ridden by British European team medallist, Michael Eilberg.

In 2013, Dornroschen’s dam, Claire — owned by Mount St John stud — produced a full-brother. The chestnut colt was sold to the Eilberg family. Michael Eilberg is building up quite a dynasty from this talented mare-line.

Meacham Mambo No 5 (showing) and Jungle Bee (eventing) also received recognition for the quality and achievements of their offspring.
