Landkönig is a 16.3 hh, bay, elite Hanoverian stallion, 4 socks, a star and snip. Landkönig completed his 100 day test at Adelheidsdorf as a 3 yr old and was 7th out of 50. 118.10 points overall with a 9.5! for stadium jumping 8's for willingness to work, character, temperament and the walk. Overall balanced on his jumping and ridability scores. 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 4 yr old gelding sold for Euro 215,000 also setting the record price for the Hanoverian auction year, something never done by a jumper! 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 5th in the Hanoverian index with offspring over $30.000 earnings even though he is a Holsteiner. 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 Dam line has produced 7 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 breedshow champion at Devon; Gratulata, a World Cup Qualifier with Michael Matz; Gina, a breeding champion of Luxemburg; her daughter winner of the Zangersheide breeding championships; Genua and Gentleman, Bundeschampionat participants. A Drosselklang filly and a stallion producing Grundstein filly from Luna sold to Paul Schockemöhle. Two offspring sold in the Vechta auction for over DM 100,000 As all these G horses are by Grundstein I, so he should be just right for your Grundstein mares.
For a period of time, Landkönig was ridden and shown by a 14 yr old girl. Even with her he had a couple thousand DM in show winnings. Anybody breeding to him is in good company as Herbert Meyer, Chef D'Equipe of the German equestrian team, Körung judge for the new Oldenburg jumping registry, bred his best mare Gratia and several others to Landkönig. From his first foal crop Landkönig produced a licensed Hanoverian son and 10 of his offspring have been selected so far for the Hanoverian Elite and riding horse auctions in Verden, Germany, including Lantinus who set a record for 2002 and sold for the highest price ever achieved by a jumper at the Elite auctions in the Hanoverian Niedersachsen Halle. All this was achieved while he was only 9 years old himself and at the beginning of his breeding career. Landkönig is fully licensed and approved for breeding by The American Hannoverian Society. The German Hannoverian verband (AHS & VHW) Oldenburg/ISR, AWR, AWS, approved by SWANA for Swedish mares, and nominated for the International Jumper Futurity.
