Landkoenig

Landadel/ Landsknecht (Lasso)/ Gotthard
Landkonig, a 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!

Landkönig's Sire
Landadel was one of the most popular and successful stallions of his generation who sadly died at a young age in 1996. Hardly a second sire deserves the label “foundation sire” as much as he does. His uniform transmission of type, nobility, color, movement and predisposition for jumping is second to none. He produced multiple licensing champion stallions, SPS mares, grand prix offspring and his presence is strongly noticed in the recent Federal and European championships. Landadel is fifth in the Hanoverian index with offspring over $30,000 earnings even though he is a Holsteiner and has earned well over $4 million in total offspring earnings.

Landkönig's Damline
Landkönig’s dam, Luna, has an evenly impressive production record. It would be hard to find a stallion with a dam line that has a stronger production record!

Landkönig’s Damline has produced seven licensed stallions. These sons include Grundsteins Erbe, sold to Italy for DM 450,000 as a jumper, and his full sibling, Grundsteins Erbe II, a licensed and approved dressage stallion owned by “Horses Unlimited”. Others are Groenland, a breed show champion at Devon; Gratulata, a World Cup Qualifier with Michael Matz; Gina, a breeding champion of Luxemburg; her da
