OCD free







❝  If you haven’t been able to use in time Guidam, the leading showjumping Sire in 2003/2004 (sire of Authentic, Ninja La Silla – Beijing OG), don’t wait for using his best son, Luidam, 1,60m Grand Prix CSIO5* winner himself and regularly placed in the WBFSH Top 100 jumping sires ranking. Luidam passes on to his offspring his blood, light type, scope, reactivity and easy temperament. He crosses especially well with tall strong mares. The crossing with the fillies of Diamant de Semilly is particularly great, like the one of Candy de Nantuel.  


Luidam has a rich pedigree of 56,77% thoroughbred (Cf.webpedigree)

HIS SIRE : GUIDAM (ex-Adagio IV): World No. 1 for Fathers of Show Jumping Winners (2003-2004)

He is a son of Quidam de Revel (Jalisco B) who acquired world fame in 1992 by his performance in the Barcelona Olympics (ridden by Hervé Godignon, where he won team bronze and Individual forth place) and proved to be a world famous sire. Guidam has also a very dam line with a lot of thoroughbred blood.

He was a good international winner with Eric Van Der Vleuten. We’ll remember mainly his title for the ‘Best Stallion’ at the Zwolle International Stallion Show. In 1995 : 2nd of the stallion class of Amsterdam CSI, 1st of Mechelen CSIO Puissance, 1st of the Top Score of Zuidlaren CSI. In 1996 : 2nd of Goes CSI GP, 3rd of Hasselt CSI GP, 13th of Saint Gall CSIO GP, etc.

With an amazing progeny, Guidam is now acknowledged as being one of the 10 best stallions in the World ! He had the KWPN « Keur » distinction and has been in 2003/2004 the leading sire among the best sires of CSO winners with the rare 17 mark.

Just after his death, his offspring payed tribute to him with 3 great medals at Beijing Olympic Games 2008 : Ninja La Silla, silver medal with Rolf Goran Bengston and Authentic, individual bronze medal and team gold medal with Beezie Madden ! Authentic has also won Aachen 2007 GP, one year after winning an individual silver medal at the World Equestrian Games. Authentic was voted « Horse of the Year 2004 » in USA and also won a team silver medal at Athens Olympic Games.

Guidam is also the sire of several other jumping winners like Luidam of course but also : Armani ; That’s Live, stallion who won the Dutch young riders Championship with G. Morsink ; Uppity, finalist of the 7YO World Championnships in 2008 ; the KWPN stallion, Utah which was ranked 5th of the 7YO World Championnships in 2008 ; Al-Bareq ; Cow Boy ; Fabels ; Guidam’s Son ; Luron ; Matahab ; May Amaire ; Nadyleen ; Nellista ; Nidam ; Pathos M ; Pristina ; Rainland Melchior ; Santos ; That’s Live ; Torrero ; Tuidam de Tivoli ; U2 ; Ultradam ;  Uryadi ; Zinédine ; Liona ISO 152 ; Orlanda ISO 154 ; Voscar ISO 141 ; etc. .

She has also produced Joline, mother of Orsini, international eventing winner. She is also the 2nd dam of Scandic, stallion, great international dressage winner, 20th of the 2009 World ranking list.

Her sire Akteur sired the international show jumping full brothers Tepic La Silla winner of a bronze medal at the 2003 European championships and Shurlands Governor, whilst through Lucky Boy xx she is closely related to such top performers as The Freak, Titan and Brown Boy who were all top level show jumping horses.

Luidam’s showjumping career began in a very good manner with a 7th place at the 5YO World Championships in Lanaken and then at 6 YO when he won the Foxhunter Finals in Wembley in 1999 with John Popeley.  In 2002 he was purchased by Sue Davis (his present owner) where he went on to win over £100,000 Sterling, in his first year as a nine year old, jumping with Billy Twomey. With such International success he was selected for the Athens Olympic Team in 2004. He jumped an impressive double clear in the Aga Khan’s Nations Cup in the Dublin Horse Show to win for Ireland in 2004. Pulling a shoe while jumping the combination in the Dublin Grand Prix caused a crack in his hoof wall which unfortunately left him out of that Olympic trip.
