“All the Gold” Memorial April 22 1982-Sept 19 2011
In 1982, European breeder P. Schockemoehle foaled "All the Gold", a beautiful Hanoverian colt out of dam Wedda, and by sire Gepard. All the Gold was imported to America in 1986 where his Show Hunter career blossomed. Taken by his power and grace in the ring, Billie Steffie purchased him in 1987 and began to make history.
In a sport dominated by Thoroughbreds, All the Gold was a fresh, new style. Strong, fluid, and effortless in appearance, the warmblood had people and judges taking notice.
All The Gold was Circuit Reserve Champion in the Regular Working Hunters at the Arizona Winter Circuit in 1990-1991. Topping that, he was Grand Circuit Champion at the Winter Equestrian Festival in the Regular Working Hunters, as well as Circuit Reserve Champion in the Amateur-Owner Hunters in both 1992 and 1993. He has earned championships and Grand championships all over the country.
Affectionately known as "Goldie", he retired from the show ring to be a full time breeding stallion in 1994. Residing at the beautiful Craighead Farm in Novelty, Ohio, his legend has grown. He was High Point Stallion at the International Hunter Futurity in 1994, and Reserve High Point Stallion for the International Hunter Futurity in 1995.He was the Grand Champion Hunter sire in 1998. In 2008 and 2009 All the Gold was 2nd in USEF leading hunter sire rankings. His get have earned over $300,000.00 in IHF earnings. Goldie's legacy continues to grow.
At Buckeye Veterinary Service, it has been our honor and privilege to work with such a special stallion and many of his offspring.
All the Gold was laid to rest on September 19, 2011. He will be greatly missed.
