|Lancier||Landgraf I||Ladykiller xx|
Danish bred but with two familiar Holsteiner jumping super sires in his recent pedigree. Langraf I bred numerous top level jumping horses but we see his breeding value today through his dynasty of grand children from his sons ‘Libero H’, ‘Burggraff’ and ‘Landadel’ etc. .
Ramiro also gave us some incredible jumpers but his value on the dam’s side of a stallion’s pedigree is emphasised by the success of Holsteiner superstar sire ‘Contender’.
Lando progressed to become an international level showjumper and then partnered by Albert Vorn initially he won individual silver at the Sydney Olympics 2000, 5th in the 5 star GP of Valkenswaard and 8th in the 5 star GP of La Baule CSIO that same year. The following year he finished 4th in the GP of Aach and 6th in the GP of Arnhem . Then later under Otto Becker he claimed the 1m55 classes at the 4 star shows in Donaueschingen and Gera and had top placings at 5 star Aachen, Calgary and Valkenswaard and 4 star Wiesbaden. He became Dutch champion in show jumping in 2000.
His most successful offspring to date is undoubtedly ‘Ornella Mail’ (Patrice Delaveau) who won the 5 star GP of Helsinki in 2011 and in 2012 at 5 star shows was 2nd in the GP of Zurich, 8th GP Gijon and 9th GP Vienna and won 1m50 classes at the 5 star shows of Geneva, Lausanne and Basel. Other offspring competing successfully internationally include ‘Oscar des Fontaines’ (Penelope Leprevost) winner of a 1m50 class at 5 star Hickstead CSIO and 1m45 slasses at 5 star Cannes, St Gallen CSIO, Aachen CSIO and La Baule CSIO all 2012 and won a 1m50 at 5 star Lyon in ’11 and was 2nd in the 3 star GP of Canteleu in ’10, ‘Lacan‘ (Patrick Stuchlmeyer) 1st in the Nations Cup of 4 star Copenhagen, 6th in the 3 star GPs of Paderborn and Hardenberg and 12th in the 4 star GP of Munich, ‘Virginia Dream’ (Joao Chuva) with numerous top 5 placings in the 2 star GPs of Villamoura and Comporta and also ‘Duke of Lando‘ (Jessica Kurten) and ‘Landlady‘ (Alois Pollmann-Schweckhorst) etc
Lando was a really elegant, modern type of sporthorse, who was sharp and careful with a very good jumping technique. He breeds modern blood types of offspring who are very light on their feet and jump well, with good technique and care. He is probably best suited by good sized mares with some power and easy temperaments. Lando will add blood, improve necklines and brings a clever attitude.
