More offspring from Tornesch

Lux Z x Libero I x Caletto I x Marlon xx

Tornesch shows a very interesting pedigree combining the best European showjumpers and sires with a lot of blood (we found back the thoroughbreds Rantzau 3 times, Ladykiller 2 times, Marlon, Cottage Son).
Very sound, he combines at the same time strength and suppleness which allowed him to compete at the highest international level for many years, with the beauty of an arabian throughbred -rare among the actual sport horses- with a long neck, a nice tiny head and big clever eyes.

He passes on blood, nice type, suppleness, scope, great canter, good balance, reactivity, carefulness and good jumping style. Tornesch doesn’t pass on the Warmblood Fragile Foal Syndrome (WFFS non-carrier).
