LOTHARIO FLF: Aka: "LEVI."
2012 Grey Gelding. Registered Old/GOV. Sired by, the Hanoverian, Landkoenig (Landadel/Landgraf)and out of, the Old/GOV, Zeja Vu (Iron Man x Zejaluna/Palmenhain). Elegant & Modern-Type. Measures 16.1H in December 2016 and still has growing and filling out to do, yet.
BLOODLINES:Levi's sire, Landkoenig, completed his 100-Day Test at Adelheidsdorf, as a 3yo, 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. He is, in fact, the highest rated jumper listed -- standing in the US 2009 Stallion Yearbook with a jumping breed value of 135 and 140 for ability. As well, Levi's Dam, ZejaVu, has a list of accomplishments that speaks for itself. In addition to earning the title of 2007 National Champion Horse of the Year Hunter Breeding, ZejaVu has contributed to Flyion Lion Farm earning National USEF 3rd Place Owners for Hunter breeding and her sire, Iron Man, earing the National USEF #1 Hunter Breeding Sire!!! Levi's blood actually lends itself, very naturally, into the Hunter Ring, but he has been started undersaddle with a great foundation in dressage.
BACKGROUND:Another of our quality sale horses owned and bred by Flying Lion Farm of FL, Levi has a very impressive weanling show record. His grand-dam is actually Shamus FLF's dam.....Trakener blood! Levi was awarded Premium Foal Status, at his OldGOV inspection, at only 2 weeks of age. He arrived to Phoebe in Live Oak, FL the winter of 2016 -- he only had a handful of rides prior to his arrival. Levi settled quickly and showed a great work ethic, early on! In addition to establishing a solid dressage foundation, he went on weekly trail rides thru the farm, neighboring farms and on the sand roads! On these rides he jumped fallen logs and concrete benches scatted thru the trail -- in a dressage saddle, we might add! After 3 months in FL, he shipped to Thornridge Manor to continue his training. He has truly proven himself to be a very safe and fun horse in every way. He has been exposed to different riders, via lessons, both young and old, and Levi is a CHAMP!!! He is light & supple in the bridle, adjusts to the expectations of his rider and is ultimately very forgiving. Levi is another FLF horse that is hard to let go of as we have become very attached to him. His personality is much like Shamus'....they love to hug on their person! Safe & HONEST describe Levi!
2012 WEANLING SHOW RECORD:
AUGUST 2016 UPDATE: Since we had a mare to prep for her AHS MPT, we decided to take advantage of the jump shoot availability and gave Levi a try. WOWSER -- Levi is a natural! He is in the top 3 of free jumping talent we have personally handled over the last 20 years! Levi also ROCKED his first dressage show: earning HIGH SCORE of the DAY on a 74+%!! Levi is ready to be sold and his future is what his buyer makes of him. Since he has such a correct basic dressage foundation, rated at First Level, he could continue in that pathway, or, he has the potential to ROCK the Hunter, Jumper and/or Eventing World. The choice is up to his buyer!!!
