Dr Christmann sent the following note to Canadian Hanoverian breeders on Sunday, November 11:
Dear Canadian friends,
I am just on my way back from the stallion performance test on Silvercreek Farms, Oklahoma, which finished yesterday. Good news: Both Canadian based Hanoverian stallions passed. Bon Balou by Balou du Rouet/Argentinus, based at Dreamscape Farms, Langley, BC, was the winner in the jumping index with 125.04. Overall he finished 3rd from 21 stallions with an overall index of 118.96 and a dressgae index of 110.55 (8th place). Vive Victory by Viva Voltaire/Akzent II from Knight's Gate Hanoverians, Welland, Ontario, finished 9th overall with 109.97 points (dressage 113.43/9th and jumping 106.27/10th).
In addition four highly interesting stallions could be licensed for the Hanoverian breed. They are based in the US, but of course available for the Canadian Hanoverian breeders. These are:
- Hilltop Qredit, 4-year-old Oldenburg stallion by Quaterback/Dream of Glory; winner of the test with an overall index of 126.59 and best dressage stallion with 135.93. The jumping index is 113.16/6th place. Qredit will stand at Hilltop Farm, Maryland.
- Bliss MF, 6-year-old Zweibrücker by Balou du Rouet/Argentinus from Marabet Farm, Florida. Bliss finished 2nd overall (122.31) and 2nd in jumping (124.23) ,with a good 3rd place in dressage (119.77).
- Contratto, 5-year-old American Holsteiner by Contendro/Lord Calando from St.Louis, Missouri. He finished 5th overall (114.85),  was 3rd in jumping (118.58) and 9th in dressage (109.08).
