The Lord Leatherdale-Negro cross has proven an exceptional nick and we are proud to offer Louisville as the next representative of this successful combination. Stallions such as Everdale, Glamourdale, and Chippendale have highlighted the success in both breeding and sport for this pedigree combination and Louisville has his own unique strengths to earn his place as stallion. As a foal, Louisville was an early standout winning the Colts of 2017 class with an 81.... (read more)1% and the Devon Foal Championship at the prestigious Dressage at Devon. At just 2½ years old, Louisville was presented to ISR/Oldenburg and received the very good index of 224.5 points. All his gaits earned scores of 8 or higher. In 2020 as a three-year old he will be presented to additional registries.
Louisville’s sire, Lord Leatherdale, is a successful FEI horse bringing in the best of Westfalen breeding lines. His sire Lord Loxley was a Bundeschampionat winner and Silver Medalist at the World Young Horse Championships. His dam, Fairless P, has been an exceptional producer with three approved sons and two approved grandsons to her record. Lord Leatherdale himself has proven to carry on this strong family record and has sired PAVO Cup winners, Young Horse World Champions, and CDI Grand Prix horses. Lord Leatherdale is currently ranked 53rd on the WBFSH Dressage Sire Rankings.
Louisville’s dam had a very successful competition career that included the USEF Intermediaire Championships and she made her Grand Prix debut by age eight. As a producer, she has already given us an inspection Site Champion, Dressage at Devon winners, a USDFBC Finals Champion, and a licensed stallion. Her sire Negro hardly needs an introduction as he is one of the most proven sires worldwide for his record of Grand Prix offspring, including the Olympic and World Champion Valegro. Negro has been awarded Preferant status by the KWPN, as was his sire Olympic Ferro. Damsire Fruhling (aka Landjonker) was an Advanced Level showjumper whose influence is well-established with 10 approved sons in Germany.
2020 will be a big year for Louisville as he is started undersaddle and enters his first breeding season. This is the first Hilltop-bred offspring that we have decided to retain for our own stallion program and we have incredibly high expectations for his future in both breeding and sport.
