Landkönig

(Landadel/ Landsknecht (Lasso)/ Gotthard)

16.3H, bay, elite Hanoverian stallion, 4 socks, a star and snip. Landkönig completed his 100 day test at Adelheidsdorf as a three-year-old and was 7th out of 50 with 118.10 points overall and a 9.5(!) for stadium jumping, 8’s for willingness to work, character, temperament and the walk. Overall balanced on his jumping and rideability scores.

The Hannoveraner Jahrbuch Hengste 2005 lists Landkönig with a jumping breeding value of 132 putting him ahead of Ritual, Drosselklang, Espri, Escudo II, Grosso Z and many other top German Grand Prix producers! Landkönig is in fact the highest rated jumper listed, standing in the U.S. listed in the 2009 Stallion yearbook with a jumper breed value of 135 and 140 for ability, slightly higher than super producer and 2007 stallion of the year Argentinus.

Landkönig has produced, from his first foal crop, a licensed Hanoverian stallion son and in 2002 broke the record for producing the highest selling jumper ever in the history at the Hanoverian Elite auctions in Germany. Lantinus, a four-year-old gelding sold for Euro 215,000 also setting the record price for the Hanoverian auction year, something never done by a jumper!

The current owners of Lantinus, the Straumanns, paid 2.4 million dollars for him and turned down 5.5 million Euro’s ($8.7 million) six months later after he won the Global champions tour GP of Qatar. Lantinus has been #1 in the FEI world ranking June and July 2008 and is now at the Olympics. All this was achieved while he was only 9 years old himself and at the beginning of his breeding career.
After his initial breeding seasons, Landkönig was ridden and shown by a 14-year-old girl. Even with her he had a couple thousand DM in show winnings.

A strong selling point for Rainbow Equus Meadows is the selection of stallions whose temperament and ridability make them ideal horses for amateurs.
