Weltmeyer was foaled in 1984, he was champion of his licensing in Verden. At the Bundeschampionate, Weltmeyer received a 9.5 for conformation and for his overall impression. Weltmeyer went on the win his performance test at Adelheidsdorf with a dressage score of 143.94 - and he had a jumping score of 141.44, there is no doubt that Weltmeyer is a sensation as a breeding stallion. In 1991, a colt from his first crop, Wittinger (out of a mare by Raphael) was champion of his licensing, and went on the following year to - like his dad - win the title at the Bundeschampionate, and his performance test. At the 1992 licensing, Wolkenstein II (out of a mare by Wendekreis) was reserve champion, and then won his performance test the following year, the year in which Wolkentanz (mare by Ludendorff) won his licensing and he went on to win at the Bundeschampionate, and stand reserve champion at his performance test. According to the rider who has been with him all his life, Hans-Peter Klaus, \\\"Weltmeyer has fantastic basic gaits. And it is something very special to ride such an eye catching horse, especially while he is trotting. When he was a young horse his movements were extremely elastic and powerful. I am always very impressed by his willingness to learn and to do a good job. When Weltmeyer was young, he was a bit difficult to handle, but it was better when he matured. Weltmeyer passes this attitude and the spectacular trot to his offspring. All ‘Weltmeyers’ want to be ridden and they ask for work. People enjoy riding Weltmeyer’s sons and daughters, they are very suitable for ambitious riders.\\\" In 1997 Weltmeyer’s first grandsons made their appearance with Welser (by Wolkenstein II, mare by Lanthan) reserve champion at the licensing, while the following year, Waterford (again by Wolkenstein II, mare by Matcho AA) won his licensing and Welser placed second in the performance test. Weltmeyer as of the 2007 Hanoverian Stallion book, had produced 85 licensed sons, Weltmeyer has clicked with mares by a number of sires, from the slightly more old fashioned mare lines of Dr Schulz-Stellenfleth (Wolkenstein I, II, III) to Welt Hit 1 to 6, out of a mare by the Thoroughbred, Hill Hawk (The first of the Welt Hit brothers won the 4 year old stallion class at the 1995 Bundeschampionate). Weltmeyer is no freak, he comes from the most successful dressage family in the world, the ‘W’ family that begins with Woermann who was the sire of World Cup (1 to 4 - in Germany licensed full-brothers are given the same name with the numeral indicating the order in which they were born), World Cup is the sire of not only Weltmeyer but also Walt Disney, and Warkant. Woermann is also the sire of Wenzel I & II., one of the most exciting things Weltmeyer does (in common with most of the good ‘W’ stallions) is stamp his offspring with a wonderful hock action, instantly cleanly forward and under the centre of gravity.The Weltmeyer grandson, Rituel (by a Belgian son of Weltmeyer and out of a mare of Belgian breeding by a son of Wendekreis) was imported to Australia as a foal in 1995 by Australian Olympic representative, Mary Hanna. The young stallion won the Australian Young Horse Championship, and then went on to represent Australia at the World Young Dressage Horse Championships in Arnhem 2000 where he placed a creditable 12th.The Weltmeyer son, Whisper, who was second at the Bundeschampionate, is now competing Grand Prix in Australia. Weltmeyer has already produced an Olympic representative in the form of Rosemount Wallstreet In fact, Weltmeyer almost had two representatives in Sydney, the stallion Wie Weltmeyer was long listed for British selection, but the general feeling is that it was more the inexperience of his British rider, Emma Hindle that kept him out of the team than any lack of horse talent. Martin Schaudt and Weltall, made the German team - while the huge chestnut son of Weltmeyer, Warum Nicht, has been a Grand Prix sensation with Isabell Werth.
