Holstein Stallion Landgraf

 
   



Landgraf I , has been labelled by many as "the"  Stallion of the Century. His genes are securely anchored in the breed of the modern sporthorse. His offspring have won just under seven million dollars mainly in show jumping and the amounts are still growing !

Nearly 60 colts by Landgraf I have been licensed for the Holsteiner stud book, like the champion of 1991, Linaro and the dressage talent, Loutano.

Some of his sons have already achieved top positions as performance sires, for example, Letus II, a jumping sire, and the versatile Landadel .
 


So far, three hundred and forty broodmares by Landgraf I are registered in the Holsteiner stud book, two hundred and sixety of these are in the Head Stud Book . Seventy have been awarded State Premium Grading, and a considerable number have been champion mares at shows.
 


Landgraf had a very good temperament which he passed on dominantly, together with excellent movement. In his Stallion Book of the Holsteiner Warmblood Breed, Dr Dietrich Rossow comments: "Imposing appearance with enormous crest and neck carriage. Smooth total top line and much presence. Beautiful face with marvellous eye. Long, rather broad neck, long sloping shoulder. Well shaped, muscular croup. Strong bone. Good in front. Good mover. Marvellous temperament. Phenomenal jumper; tight in front, lots of bascule, careful and talented. Huge number of international class jumpers. Up to now (the book was published in 1988) Landgraf is far and away the most important jumper sire in the world!"
 

Landgraf was born in1966 and past away in 1996.
