Sire: LEETO Z’s beautiful, correct conformation and powerful and elegant movement combined with incredible scope make him an all-round exceptional athlete. However, perhaps his best feature is his intelligent and engaging personality that not only make him a brave and willing partner, but also a quick learner and simple, straight-forward ride. At his Canadian Warmblood stallion performance test, Leeto Z was the highest scoring stallion for temperament and rideablity. His grandsire, LANDGRAF I, became the most important sire of show jumpers in the twentieth century having sired the most money winning show jumping offspring in the world.
Dam: DONATELLA’s pedigree on the top side goes back to DONNERHALL. Donnerhall’s talent was apparent right from the start when he scored 131.92 to be second in his performance test at Adelheidsdorf in 1984. His competition career is the stuff of legend. He represented the highest combination of breeding and sports successes. His sports career was full of pinnacles:1986 honoured as DLG champion stallion, at the WEG at The Hague in 1994 with his lifelong rider Karin Rehbein he won team gold and in freestyle the bronze medal. This result was repeated in 1997 at the European Championships at Verden with gold in the team and bronze in the individual. In 1998, Donnerhall and Karin Rehbein returned from the WEG at Rome with team gold and an outstanding fourth place in the individual results.
Notes: LIMITED EDITION (aka Louie) is a BIG, fancy gelding. He is already proving to be a carbon copy of his sire LEETO Z in every way. He is 17hh and thick bodied yet is very light on his feet with big suspension and cadence. Louie has the quality and breeding to excel in dressage with his uphill frame and movement, or he could be a performance hunter with his rhythm, power and form.
