Werby the much loved stallion of Katrina Routson from Terarrosa Lodge passed away in March 2013. he fought for two months after breaking his fetlock but in the end the damaged could not be repaired. You will be missed always gentle boy.
Pure bred imported Friesian stallion. Sired by the great Anton 343. He stood at 16.1hh and was of classic/modern build. His mane was more than a metre long and this trait he passed on to his offspring. His most endearing quality however was his temperament. He was extremely quiet and easy to handle and a joy to ride.
Werby had a very exciting start to his show career in 2010. He won Champion or Reserve Champion at every show he competed in only getting Res Champ to Katrina's mare Frelle. He did this in both led and ridden classes. He competed not only in friesian classes but also in the open hack ring in the show hunter division. He also competed in Adult Riding Club classes and open stallion classes. Always bringing home a Champion Ribbon.
Werby continued his Champion winning ways in 2011, bringing home a Champion ribbon in both ridden and led classes at every show competed in. This included winning Reserve Champion Ridden Friesian at the 2012 Melbourne Royal.
In May 2012, Werby was announced the ANZFHS Hipoint winner for Show Stallion in hand and Ridden Friesian show horse. He was also entered into the Roll of Merit for Showing.
