Catherston Liberator Thoroughbred Event Stallion

A Thoroughbred Stallion for Eventing Catherston Liberator


A Thoroughbred Stallion for Eventing Catherston Liberator is the ideal improver Stallion

A Thoroughbred Eventing Stallion with so many strings to his bow.  Not only has he had a very successful career in a wide range of disciplines but his progeny too are showing clear star quality themselves.

Top sire young horses aged 4-8 ranked 14 (296 points) and 10th with 397 points in 2013 with British Eventing

Catherston Liberator shows just why he is the thoroughbred stallion for eventing with his own concrete career in the event world gaining  66 points British Eventing and in the money at every event in his last season and taking 12 points for each of his last three wins at Longleat, Wilton and Somerly Park Intermediates.


In 2007 cousins, Catherston Dazzler (x Welton Gazelle Catherston Liberators Grand dam) and Catherston Liberator where both ranked in the Futurity Stallion Rannkings for three progeny with the highest scores as Dressage Sires


Catherston Liberator is an impressively well made stallion with the classic good looks of the best of thoroughbreds. His head and neck are set well on a good shoulder with a great coupling front to back and he stands four square.  He raced for eight years proving just how good his conformation is and how well his lovely well made legs have served him.

A Career that proves Catherston Liberator is the right Throughbred Stallion for Eventing Breeding

He followed racing with a career in Dressage (435 points: Advanced) and also taking a fair sized pot in the showjumping arena (£346: Grade C) and finished at the top of his game in Eventing (66 points: Advanced). Not content to rest on his laurels he has since been a schoolmaster at Advanced Medium for Jennie Lorsiton Clarks daughter and also taken the ribbons in Veteran Classes at the National Hunter Show classes too.

He has returned from Langaller Farm in Bovey Tracey, after five years, to stand at Catherston Stud and would make a valuable contribution to both amateur and professional breeding programmes.

Breeding that makes a Thoroughbred Stallion right for Eventing

Catherston Dazzlers’ sire Liboi ran 71 races both on the flat and over hurdles. He won 10 races and was placed in 23. That is a seriously impressive success rate!.  He was also a tough thoroughbred who retired sound despite an intense career on the track. He certainly deserved his Champion TB Stallion at the Ponies of Britain Show in both 1984 and 85.  He also took the reserve Champion (over 14.2hh) at the Essex County Show in 1987.

Loboi sired winners in both flat and hurdle racing and also in the show ring.  His other noteworthy progeny is the Graded Stallion Grand Prix Dressage Catherston Humbug.

His dam, Catherston Jetstream, had great breeding lines.  By the Dutch horse Jashin, who was sire of Olympic horse Sunny Boy and Beau Bravado.  Catherston Jetstream was a very successful Show Jumper with earning £2,000 in winnings.  Catherson Jetstream bred 5 foals. Her own progeny taking top places at Futurity  and her daughter Catherston Dream Machine bred Catherston What A Dream, a sliver medal British Warmblood who competed at Small Tour and also Catherston Springstream who took Champion Hunter as a foal and is successfully competing BSJA.

Woodlander Stud, Woodlander Rockstar

Woodlander Stud: BWS-UK Stallion Woodlander Rockstar


Woodlander Rock Star – Woodlander Stud’s homebred British Warmblood  and grade 1 Oldenburg Dressage Stallion

A good looking British Warm Blood Stallion with the all important look at me presence.

Woodlander rockstar is very powerful and now competing with the Eilbergs at Inter II

Woodlander Rock Star – Woodlander Stud British Warmblood

A good looking British Warm Blood Stallion with the all important look at me presence.  He is very powerful  stallion, and yet entirely contained, and now competing with the Eilbergs at Grand Prix. He has the wonderful, and covetable, ability to move from an expressive passage full of power and elevation into a relaxed walk across the arena and back to show some passage with so much lift and rhythm that you cannot help but be truly impressed;: Not his temperament which allows such a calm approach to a contained jet power driven performance. In the spring of 2013 Lynne Crowden had commented the she was looking forward to his move into the 70’s and he has transitioned seamlessly gaining over 70% at Lemieux National Championships in 2013 and has, since, taken respectable points at all his outings, building on his great success on the 2009 Success on the Sunshine Tour where he won all nine of his classes.  His 2012 seson saw his move into FEI Inter II competition and he took the reserve National Champion that year too. These results were predicted by his grading judges who foresaw an international career ahead of him.

There is no doubt that he is being favoured as a dressage stallion to date with 2 good looking offspring at the 2014 Futuity  as both as sire and dam sire and again in the 2013 Futurity awards with 4 progeny put forward for dressage grading (as sire of and dam sire). Woodlander Rockstar gained a certificate of merit at the Futurity Dressage yearling in 2012 and It was in 2011  that Woodalnder Rock Music came before the judges and he set the bar high for his siblings to follow.

An early foal by Woodlander Rockstar, Woodlander Rapido, campaigned so ably by Annette Ruth Davis-Green is now competing at FEI Inter 1 and PSG and has 368 points at the time of writing and has gained points at every outing over the last tow years.

Woodlander Studs Woodlander Rockstar is by Rotspon/Rubenstein 1 x Anatalia

Woodlander Rockstars’ Sire Sire Rotspon by Rubinsein 1 x state premium mare Antalia was known and admired for his great temperament too, making training such a pleasure  and productive. His good sloping shoulder and elegantly long neck, and of course his sleek jet black colouring are also features which Woodlander Rockstar and his progeny are carrying through. His Grand Sire Rubenstein 1 was prodigiously successful as a performance horse with 40 winds at Grand Prix and he was also a member of the gold winning team at the 1996 Olympics. With 89 State Premium mares and 66 approved stallions.

Dam St Premium Savannah/Sandro x Lollipop

Woodlander Roackstars’ State Premium dam, Savannah, (San Paolo mare) sadly passed on in 2012 but she was a prodigious mare. Her own temperament was “fiery” as Lynne Crowden said in the lovely obituary she wrote for this Woodlander foundation mare which she had bought with the help of hermother. However her offspring have demonstrated again and again just why they are so popular because they are so “ridable” her last two foals have been secured by Maria & Michael Eiberg; certainly a sign of the quality of her progeny. Two embryo transfer foals where born of her. One, Supertramp, has progeny already proving their quality successfully at the Futurity Awards. Savannah, at her own gradings, had impressive scoring in her jumping test and undoubtedly it is her abilities which also pass to Woodlander Rockstars’ Progeny who are coming on to the competitive scene in all disciplines.

I have saved his other successful progeny for another blog…there are just so many!

Show Jumping Stallion Babeleh

Show Jumping Stallion Review: Babeleh


For Breeders Looking to Improve Performance with a Show Jumping Stallion: Balebeh offers concessions to Grade A mares.

For those breeding to improve performance in show jumping the stallion Balenbeh is a handsome, compact, well made Selle Italiono with a good shoulder slope and humorous length giving him a good shape over a fence. Now campaigned by Emma Jowsey here in the UK.

Standing at Ballinmore Stud in Yorkshire this lovely show jumping performance stallion has already proved his genetics with offspring competing in the international arena. As a young sire his progeny included A Brok a chestnut KWPN 2005 gelding15 currently competing at a 1.50m level with Rein Pill, and the KWPN Registered Bay Stallion Abaldo.

Bred in Holland by Alessandro Pellegrini, an internationally recognised Show Jumping Breeder, who has bred and produced top show jumpers for more than 20 years. Balebeh was Graded and Approved with the Zangersheide stud as a 4 year old Stallion and was 5th at the Dutch National Stallion Championships. He is also a Graded AES Stallion and has been awarded the Silver Stallion Medal with the BSJA.

His Show Jumping career was started in Italy at 6 years old and he has competed at CSI 4* Level, jumping here in the UK and in Italy.

Babelehs’ own show jumping genetics are assured. His sire is the Olympic stallion Baloubet du Rouet . Baloubet du Rouet is a 3 times World Champion Show Jumping Stallion with 2 gold medals and an Olympic Team Bronze. And this line comes from Galbouet by Alme, also an Olympic stallion, winning team gold at the World Show Jumping Championships in 1982.

His dam Tallisman Girl (Lucky boy xx. ) has also bred Millemiglia (2001) who is already successfully campaigned by the Italian International Show Jumper Filippo Moyersoen. Another relation from Alessandro Pellegrinis’ stable is Adwana (Lucky Boy/Lucky Boy xx) is campaigned by International Show Jumper, turned Eventer, Juan Carlos Garcia.

Lucky Boy XX has 27 approved stallions to his name and is clearly one of the key foundation stallions of the modern Show Jumper.

This well made show jumping stallion, Balebeh, has a neat, powerful jump. He is an agile stallion with plenty of power and yet has a surprisingly long stride, which is why he has been successful on the international tracks. He also has the best of temperaments, not only to cope with the stresses of a show jumping career but also one which makes him a dream to handle at home.

For Breeders looking for an excellent stallion which offers good value this show jumping improver stallion has a Stallion Profile on Horse Scout and offers concessions to Grade A Show Jumping Mares.




Samara fly Dual Purpose Stallion

Dual Purpose Stallion the Skewbald Tobiano Samara Fly


An eye catching and coloured Dual Purpose performance stallion Samara Fly standing at Longacres Stud

Samara Flys’ credentials as a Dual Purpose Stallion

Samara Fly carries his 17.0hh with powerful athleticism. Owned by Mandy Sanderson, Samara Fly is a Dual Purpose Anglo European Registered Sports Horse with a passport full of ticks in the right boxes.  His pedigree Sambertino KWPN (Samber ex Illustra), Dam: Annie XVIII SHB(GB) (Tullibards Shakespeare ex Grange Girl Pet) back up his performance potential..

However, its not just performance that matters to breeders and temperament is often key to stallion choice.  This quiet, companionable and highly trainable stallion lives on a mixed yard and hacks out on the moors at home from the Longacres Stud.

His “clients” are obviously very happy with their offspring and this is more than backed up by the number of breeders posting up to Samara Flys’ “facebook” page.  What has been very interesting is the obvious stamp of Samara Fly on his offspring: They do, to a man, seem to stand well on all four corners with good shape to their bodies and well set heads and necks. Interestingly, they are, bar a very few, all coloured and most carry the widened blaze over the nostrils.  The over arching impression though is one of interest in the camera!! Something their father is not shy of either.

Samara Fly is fully graded with both CHAPS UK and ISPA (now LHI). The Irish Sports Horse grading thorough his dams line as well as a fully licensed stallion with the Zfdp (Zuchtverband fuer deutsche Pferde e. V.) where he was the youngest UK stallion, at the time, to receive this grading. His grandsire the Skewbald KWPN Samber was not only a very useful jumping horse but also a Grand Prix dressage horse.

In 2011 he received his full AES (Anglo European Studbook) grading as a Dressage Stallion.  Indeed another first for this lovely coloured stallion.

Samara Fly is Dual Purpose in the Judges Eyes

His judges would, it seems agree with his usefulness as a dual purpose horse. In the same year he qualified for Badminton Young Dressage Horse gaining a 7th at the finals, he also qualified for, and made a good account of himself, in the Summer Regionals that year and qualified for the Pet Plan Medium following this up with a qualification for the Winter Regionals too.

He has started his jumping career under British Show Jumping with Sarah Lundy and has also made successful appearances in the show ring.

As a performance horse Samara Fly is working well, and above average for a horse of his age. Campaigned from Novice up to PSG by YGB rider Alex C Ingoe-Topham under Michael Eiberg since 2010. Michael has been a supporter of this horses career and who firmly believed that this lovely horse would go to Grand Prix (and I have no doubt he was right!) said;

So much upward movement, the like I have never seen in a Coloured Horse ! …”He is the Coloured horse of the future…The one to Watch !!”

The ride is now with Hannah Doggett who has upped his game, and his success record since April this year. His results are nothing less than impressive.  Competing at Advanced Medium and Prix Saint Georges he has taken a ribbon at every show so far with upwards of 665% at most outings and an impressive 67.3% at AM for the Summer Qualifier at Cockshot along with top slot on her other ride the Andalusian stallion Hortelano Cen in the Medium.

At the Hartpury Festival of Dressage Michael Eiberg must have been pleased to see Samara Fly with Hanna Hoggett in the Elite Stallion class where this young stallion performed well in a very strong field where the marks ranged from just touching 60 right up to the outstanding score by Micheal Eibergs’ ride with Woodlander Farouche at 0ver 77%.

Longacres Stud, who bred from Samara Fly as a 3 year old, have 33 of his progeny with the stud prefix Longacres. Samara fly has some 55 progeny now listed the first looking set to show the world how successful Samara Fly Progeny will be.

With his progeny featuring in the Futurity programs across all three disciplines he is proving himself a versatile performance improving dual purpose stallion and even only so few years in his ranking with BEF is already 7.77.

You can find out more about this attractive dual purpose performance stallion through his profile on horse Scout the website which connects breeding lines and professionals.
