The 2020 Youth/Mid-Summer Nationals was a big show for our breeding program with 5 Wiloma-bred horses in attendance. We are proud to announce that these contenders came away with 12 Top Tens and 1 National Championship! We especially wish to congratulate WP Corporate Nut Mix (by WP Corporate Image) and Jade on their BIG win in HA Country English Pl JOTR 14-18, one of the biggest classes of the show!
Wiloma Plantation is proud to announce a major collaboration with Heartland Hackney Farm in Iowa, the #1 breeder of Hackney ponies worldwide. Two weeks before Mr. Kolkman passed, he and his grandson Shae contacted us about using our stallion Kingsley Claim to Fame for the 2020 breeding season. We negotiated an agreement where we will exchange stallions in mid-May with Heartland offering Wiloma Plantation the use of their champion-producing stallion Heartland Rain and Fire. We appreciate the respect Heartland has for Kingsley Claim to Fame, and we fully expect a successful breeding season for both Heartland and Wiloma!
Wiloma Plantation would like to congratulate Mountjoy Arabians on their purchase of AG Royal Attraction (pictured) and She's Ready by Kingsley Claim to Fame. We are thrilled for you to own these high quality ponies, and we look forward to watching your success with them down the road.
We would like to congratulate WP Uplifting (Kingsley Claim to Fame x Heartland Reverence) on being named the UPHA Hackney Pony Classic Champion at the American Royal. He was also the RWC in the Junior Hackney Pony Championship at Louisville. Bred by David Bandy, Uplifting was foaled in 2015, and is now trained by Lynda Freseth and owned by Mary Gise.
What a great 2019 US Nationals for Wiloma and our stallion WP Corporate Image. WP Fashionista (by WP Corporate Image) won a UNANIMOUS National Championship in the Arabian English Pl AAOTR Maturity. She also won a Top Ten in Arabian English Pl AAOTR 19-39 and Arabian English Pl (with a second place vote). WP Corporate Nut Mix also made her debut in the HA Country English Pl Futurity and finished Top Ten.
