where he is assisted by his wife Ulricha and staff.
Jöern rides 10-12 horses a
Jöern’s first visit to
Australia was in September 2005 and he said that he was impressed with the
high standard of horses. “On my first trip I was very surprised to see
the quality of horses in Australia. You have some very good
thoroughbreds and using warmblood stallions over these quality
thoroughbred mares is a positive thing for your breeding programs.”
Jöern told Tracy that he
doesn’t have a favourite ‘line’ of horses but mentioned that Weltmeyer
and Donnerhall progeny display expressive movement and Rubinstein stock
have very good temperaments and trainability. He also rates highly
thoroughbred sires such as Prince Thatch (sire of Prince Noir),
Laurie’s Crusader and Cardinal and acknowledges their significant
contribution to German breeding programs.
