Due February 2014. $9000/LFG, deposit holds foal.
Lagoheidor( Landadel/Godehard/Furioso) was bred by Gerd Sosath & initially stood stud in Germany at Glock Stallion Station in
Baden Wuerttemberg, before standing stud in the Netherlands at the well known Dekstation de
Havikerwaard. In the Netherlands, Lagoheidor was show jumping Champion at Arnhem in 1996
with Dutch jumping rider Roelof Brill as well as Champion stallion at Arnhem in 1998 with
dressage rider Edward Gal, against heavy competition that included Lord Liberty G, Lancet,
Bonheur, & Garibaldi.
Lagoheidor was also champion of his stallion performance test in Germany, in 1995, receiving the incredible score of "10" for his jumping ability and his stadium jumping. Lagoheidor is one of 4 full brothers that have achieved success at the highest levels of sport; his full brothers are Landor S, Landwerder and Laertes. Lagoheidor is the rare stallion that has performed at both high level jumping as well as high level dressage. His main career focus was FEI level dressage, successfully showing and winning to Grand Prix. He has also produced successful offspring in both sports and he has offspring that
are on the FEI WBFSH World Ranking List in Dressage AND in Jumping. In addition to Lagoheidor's MANY successful dressage offspring he has many offspring competing at all levels of show-jumping. While too numerous to name them all, a few include L Graffin DDH, competing at CSI, Penny Lane, top placings at CSI at 1.40m, Baloubetta du Soleil (Balou du Rouet/Lagoheidor), placings at CSI** competitions including Mainz & winning at CHIO Rotterdam, Dark Charly, 2002 Mecklenburg stallion with placings at CSI** level, 1.30 m also ranked in the top 50 successful competition horses of all Mecklenburger horses in 2008. There are many, many other Lagoheidor offspring moving up the jumping levels, winning and placing in European youngster classes, M level jumping and S level jumping. Lagoheidor also has produced two approved stallion sons in addition to regional and national foal champions in Europe including a Ciacomo/Lagoheidor colt who received a score of 9.30 and was the highest scoring foal of all the jumping AND dressage foals in August 5, 2012, at the largest foal show in Southern Germany, where 140 foals were presented at the well
known breeding station Gestuet Birkhoff.
The dam of this foal is the retired show-jumper Porta Westfalica. She was shown in Germany prior to being imported and has an extensive show record as a level 8 jumper, showing and winning at top venues such as Spruce Meadows. Porta Westfalica's sire is the legendary Westfalen stallion Polydor. Polydor was approved in 1974 and stood at the Westfalien state stud until his death in 1999. His offspring at the top of the sport are too numerous to mention them all, but they include the following:
Michael Whitaker’s Two Steps, who was good enough to be crowned WBFSH Horse of the Year 1994/95. Jan Tops had La Silla, while Bert Romp rode Burg’s Pretty Woman. Beat Mändli rode Positano to team silver at the Sydney Olympics. In 2006, Pilgrim jumped successfully with Bjorn Nagel, while Sören Pedersen enjoyed success with Polly. Pontifex jumped well with Lutz Gripshöver. The Libero H mare, Libertina, out of a Polydor mare, has been a superstar with Jessica Kürten. The black stallion, Potsdam continues to attract mares at the State Stud in Warendorf. There are very few direct Polydor daughters around today, so Porta Westfalica is a treasure indeed. Porta Westfalica's damline is also one of the most import and and influential Thoroughbred lines in all of Germany (family 5-h). This family has an excellent reputation of producing riding horses for all disciplines in a very consistent manner. The super stallion Heraldik xx has a line to this family In addition this line has produced many stallion sons used in Germany for sport horse breeding. There have also been countless FEI level horses produced by this line, including Marcus Ehning's Anka 191, L'Espoir (Ludger Beerbaum), Waldi (Aaron Vale) as well as several upper level eventers and dressage horses. Porta Westfalica's tail female line is very, very special, indeed!
