Elroon 2001 - 2017

It is with deep sadness that we announce the loss of Witcham House Farm Stud's beautiful Black Stallion, Elroon

Elroon was born in 2001 and Licensed by the Hanoverian Verband in 2003. He was imported him from Germany in January 2004. Elroon then returned in the Autumn of 2004 to pass his performance test at Adelheidsdorf with high marks for temperament, character and rideability. Already attracting huge interest and adoration. His first foals were very striking with presence and movement.

2005 - Fantastic performance in SEIB British Breeding Young Horse Evaluations. Winning the Dressage and Show Jumping sections. A week later qualifying for The British Dressage Panacur Potential International Dressage Horse National Championships. Elroon placed third in Burghley Young Event Horse National Qualifier with the best jumping mark of the day.

2006 - Upgraded to Elementary and has 92 points. Again qualified for The British Dressage Panacur Potential International Dressage Horse National Championships and also Rhinegold Potential International Dressage Horse at Hickstead.

Elroon has won affiliated Dressage since he started competing early in 2005. Scores regularly in the high sixties and seventies. With outstanding all round ability Elroon was a potential star for Show Jumping, Dressage and Eventing.

To date Elroon had now won nearly 70 Affiliated Dressage classes. In 2012 Elroon qualified for Nationals at Medium, and Regionals in 2013 & 2015 at Advanced Medium and music.

Our thoughts are with his owner Katy Holder-Vale and rider Victoria Gilbey at this difficult time.
