WINDSONG FV (LeSanto/Landgraf I x Evensong/Calimero I)

2006 Brown Bay, 16H, Registered Main Mare Premium Select with the American Holsteiner Horse Association's Studbooks. Stellar show record at USDF Breed Shows.


Windsong's sire, Le Santo, received an amazing 51 Bonit points (9876678). This was the highest bonits in America and he held that title for a decade. From 1990 through 1998, Le Santo was the leading producer of Holsteiner foals and mares in the US. In 1989 and 1999 he was honored as AHHA Sire of the Year. In 2010, 23 years after his first foal crop arrived, mares and foals by Le Santo are still receiving premium status. He is also a proven broodmare sire -- mares by Le Santo are consistently producing premium foals and champions. Repeatedly recognized as "the ideal modern sporthorse, " he had a successful jumping career until the age of 13 before boasting an equally successful dressage career. Windsong, like her sire, has extraordinary athletic abilities, an outstanding jump, and remarkable temperament. Windsong's dam, Evensong, was Reserve Champion at her East Coast Mare Inspection. She is a lovely mare with a history of producing premium foals. Windsong's full sibling received premium status and earned a high national ranking after his inspection. Unfortunately, due to her breeder's health, Windsong did not attend her foal inspection, so we have no scores or comments to offer.

Windsong represents the first weanling that Thornridge Manor purchased. Upon first glance, Windsong draws attention with her sculpted face and lovely expression indicating a solid mind. Upon further evaluation, it is hard to miss her correct conformation as the embodiment of the Holsteiner breed standard. And then, you see her move...she is light, lofty, and graceful....dare we mention her incredible air time and natural athleticism for piaffe. As a dressage performance horse, as a model mare hunter, as an open jumper, on the line, or as an addition to a breeding program, horses like Windsong do not come around very often. Please take a look at Windsong's amazing record below. She was broken briefly ( 2 weeks) in the spring of 2009 and in the winter of 2010 we plan to officially place her undersaddle. From breed shows to performance shows Windy will keep winning.......
