We were invited to attend the Hessen region Trakehner mare show held at the Dillenburg State Stud – a lovely old stud in central Germany with strong historic ties to the Dutch royal family.  German judge Mathias Werner did a fabulous job with the organisation of this event.  Also judging were Ahmed Al Samarraie (breeder of our imported mare Zariah Al Samarra), and Chris Adron from Victoria, Australia.
