Melody of Excellence HOF

Sometimes, when a foal is born... you just know.  Melody was born at DerHaflingerhof to Maserata TOF, sired by Standard of Excellence TOF in 2012.  She stood right away, found her mother quickly and has been going full steam ahead ever since.  This year, 2015, she spent a very short time at a professional trainers.  To say she caught on quickly is an understatement.  She was ridden at the 2015 Futurity as a three year old.  She never looked back.  She won the Three Year Pleasure All, the Three Year Old Pleasure Riding and was named the Three Year Old Champion.  We feel this is the type of mare that breeding programs are based on.  A few weeks after the Futurity, she was taken to Mohican State Park and ridden by a youth rider over every type of trail obstacle imaginable.  She was perfect.  She will be staying at DerHaflingerhof for quite a while!  Melody is pictured with Ben Eicher, handler, Robert Eicher ,owner of DerHaflinger and International Haflinger judge and WHF President, Lukas Schieber.
