Isabell Werth has taken over the ride on Den Haag, a former licensed stallion trained and competed by her former student and employee Beatrice Buchwald. 

Den Haag is a 12-year old Westfalian (by Diamond Hit x Florestan x Werther). He is bred by Dieter Kellermann and is out of a full sister to Fidermark. 

Buchwald and Den Haag

Right after his licensing in 2010, Den Haag went into training with Beatrice Buchwald, first at Johann Hinnemann's and soon after at Isabell Werth's. Beatrice developed him to Grand Prix level.  In 2012 Den Haag sold to Austrian Manfred Hödl.

The pair was 8th at the 2013 Bundeschampionate for 5-year olds and fourth in the finals for 6-year olds at the 2014 World Championships for Young Dressage Horses in Verden, Germany.

In 2016 Buchwald competed the horse in the Nurnberger Burgpokal qualifiers, but between the summer of 2016 and the spring of 2018 there were no shows for Den Haag. 

In the autumn of 2016 Buchwald had left Werth's stable to start on her own at Manfred Hödl's stable in Rhineland and Den Haag joined her. The pair returned to the arena a year and a half later at a local show in Wupperfurth in April 2018, at Grand Prix level. It was his only show of that year. Den Haag was also gelded around that time.

A year later Den Haag was shown in the Intermediaire II in June and July 2019 at shows in Werder and Bettenrode.  The July show was the pair's last

Den Haag left for Isabell Werth's in November 2019, right before Beatrice moved her business to her fiancé Jens Hoffrogge's stable in December.

Werth made her show debut in a Grand Prix class at the 2020 CDN Ankum on Thursday 16 January 2020. The pair finished second out of eight competitors and scored 70.233%.

The class was won by Bianca Kasselmann on the 19-year old Weekend Fun (by Welt Hit I x Rubinstein). She got 71.167%.
