Wonderful was purchased in 1995 for sport and imported to the US in 1997.  However, in 2000, German FN ranked Wonderful the #1 dressage sire in the younger stallion category based on his offspring's show records in Germany. He achieved the impressive dressage breed index of 156.

Wonderful was Reserve champion of the stallion licensing at Verden, Germany out of 100 stallions in 1991. The Hanoverian State Stud Stallion Book describes him being with excellent conformation, striking nobility, a very good type and expression. He is bred out of a good dam line and has passed on his excellent dressage talent. He started competing at M level (3rd - 4th level) dressage in 1996 and has been winning with scores of 80 - 85%. At age of only 7, he started schooling all Grand Prix movements. (The video was taken when he was only 8.)

Wonderful served at the State Stud for three years. Many of his foals won at breed shows in Germany. In 1996, a 2-year-old filly was the champion of her class and the Grand Champion at Bargstedt Mare Show. Again, in 1997 the Bargstedt mare show champion was a mare by Wonderful.

In June, 1997, three 3-year-old filles by Wonderful were awarded States Premiums at Bargstedt mare show. Also in the United States, the inspection overall champion mare, and one of the only three Hanoverian mares that scored 8 or above at the 1997 AHS inspection tour was a black filly, Wondergirl by Wonderful. In 1999, Wondergirl went on to win her mare performance test with an overall score of 8.33 and an incredible ridability score of 9!

His first US foal crop arrived in 1999. They span from Rhode Island, Virginia, Florida, Canada, all the way to Hawaii. Among his US foals, we have inspection and breed show champions, impressive stallion candidates, and several foals were successfully sold before they were weaned with prices as high as $12,000. Wonderful's other imported offspring have also been observed to be successfully marketed at $40,000 to $50,000.

He has been a sire and grandsire to several horses participated in the prestigious Elite auctions in Verden, Germany. At the 1998 Fall Elite auction, Winwood, a 3-year-old gelding by him, was selected and imported by Pan Am and World Equestrian Game Gold Medallist Debbie McDonald. This youngster went on to represent the US for year 2000 World Breeding Championship in Holland with owner/trainer Heather Bender. He also finished 2000 with many wins in CDS and USDF championships with scores as high as 80+%. He was also the champion of USDF All-Breeds award at First Level in 2000, and Reserve Champion of USDF All-Breeds award at 3rd level in 2001.  In 2003, at e 8, Winwood has started his winning way at Prix St. George and I-1.  He was 4th in the nation to qualify for the USEF Intermediaire-1 Championship held with 2004 Olympic Selection Trial in San Juan Capistrano.  Olympian Debbie McDonald selected Wonderful to breed for her sponsor River Grove Farm.

Wonderful's US crops are still young, but already have started to shine in the USDF Breeding in-hand classes and low level dressage.  He has foals ranked highly in the USDF Sporthorse in-hand Year-End Awards while their amateur breeders only showed a few times for fun.

Wonderful is a proven sire with very high prepotency of passing down his athleticism and gentle temperament. His older offspring produced when he was in Germany have demonstrated that they are not only good as foals, but also when they become performance horses. The statistical Breed Index of 156 says it all!
