He is the first licensed son of the outstanding Wirthsmühle Dark Diamond (licensing winner sport ponies and best performance tested stallion of the short test; full brother to European Champion Wirthsmühle Denlaney`s) out of Carnane Yves (by Clifden winner and sport pony in GB Inellan Condor out of the multiple show winner Cnocban Yasha). We are very proud  and congratulate the happy owners. Birdmountain Younique will most likely also be available through AI


In September we were very successful at the Connemarapony Show 2023, Germany:
Carnane Yves, dam of homebred Birdmountain Younique rocked the show : Winner of the 8-9 year old mares, best mare in Show and Champion Supreme & Best in Show, congratulations to the breeders, Mike and Deirdre Holmes, Ireland and the new owner, Ute Walther. We were also very happy about the success of Sternberg Salut, reserve winner of the 17-year-old and older mares.


It was also an outstanding year in competition:

She was part of the Marburg-Biedenkopf team and achieved fourth place in the Hessian Eventing Team Championships (1.10m) and was presented twice internationally, e.g. first reserve CIC * Intro Bad Harzburg
