Helen Langehanenberg has taken over development for advanced competition of Candy OLD, the 2017 German four-year-old champion for mares and geldings.

The horse has been moved to the training center of the German team Olympic, world and European championship rider from the stables of the breeder, the Family Wendeln.

“Candy is a model horse, who everyone wishes for,” Helen said. “She is incredibly easy, has three terrific basic gaits, learns extremely fast and always wants to do everything right.”

Candy (Sir Donnerhall I x Fürst Heinrich) was the 2016 winner at the mare performance test as a three-year-old, the Oldenburg winning mare and State Champion and in 2017 repeated as Oldenburg State Champion and took the Bundeschampionate. Herman Gerdes was the rider for all of the titles.

Candy will soon move again for a short time–to Eva Möller as Helen is expecting her second child.

“I’m sure that Eva will fancy her like me. As soon as I can start training again after birth, she will have to bring Candy back to me,” Helen said, then added, “as sorry as I am for Eva.“
