Dressurstar Lingh auf Gestüt Birkhof
„Ich hatte schon immer den Wunsch einmal einen weltweit bekannten Hengst aufzustellen, mit Lingh wird der Traum wahr“, strahlt Thomas Casper wenn er an seinen Neuzugang denkt. Der unter Edward Gal international hoch erfolgreiche Grand-Prix Hengst Lingh wird eine Box im Hengststall auf dem Gestüt Birkhof in Donzdorf beziehen.

Von der Pike auf ausgebildet hat den braunen KWPN-Hengst kein geringerer als der dreifache Weltmeister Edward Gal. In den Jahren 2005 und 2006 gewann das Paar zahlreiche internationale Grand-Prix-Prüfungen. Der Gewinn der Silbermedaille beim Weltcup-Finale 2005 in Las Vegas und die Silbermedaille mit dem Oranje-Team bei den Weltreiterspielen 2006 in Aachen sind die Höhepunkte der Sport-Karriere des bewegungsstarken Hengstes. 
Aufgrund seiner herausragenden internationalen Sporterfolge körte der KWPN den typvollen Lingh im Jahr 2005. Heute ist sein Blut weltweit gefragt: Ob Hannover, Oldenburg, Schweden, Finnland oder die süddeutschen Verbände - Lingh ist überall begehrt und anerkannt. 
Aus seinem ersten Jahrgang stellte der Flemmingh-Sohn bei der KWPN-Körung 2009 mit Beau den Reservesieger und teuersten Dressurhengst der Auktion. Linghs Vater Flemmingh hat seine Wurzeln in Holstein und stammt von Lacapo aus einer Mutter von Carneval ab. Flemmingh ist einer der erfolgreichsten Dressurvererber in den Niederlanden, er ist u.a. auch Vater von Krack C (Anky van Grunsven). Linghs Mutter Gazelle zählt zu den höchst bonitierten Stuten im KWPN-Stutbuch. Die Tochter des Columbus, der international unter Jos Lansink im Sport aktiv war, führt im Pedigree die Vollblüter Lucky Boy xx und Uppercut xx. Aus ihrem Mutterstamm sind bereits sieben Hengste gekört.

Linghs Besitzerin, Karin Reid Offield aus den USA, ist „happy“, dass ihr Lingh auf der größten privaten EU-Besamungsstation in Süddeutschland decken wird. „Ich habe Lingh2007 gekauft und von Edward Gal übernommen. In der folgenden Saison war ich im Grand-Prix-Sport in den USA sehr erfolgreich, bis sich der damals vierzehnjährige Hengst verletzte und in die Zucht wechselte. Lingh macht hoch moderne bewegungsstarke und elastische Fohlen, die auch seinen tollen Charakter geerbt haben. Ich kenne viele seiner Nachkommen in den USA. Ich freue mich auf ein Wiedersehen mitLingh bei den Hengstshows auf Gestüt Birkhof“. 

==============================================

Lingh’s sire, the Preferent stallion Flemmingh, was one the most famous dressage stallions in the KWPN. He placed third at his performance test in 1990, scoring three 9s, including a 9 for jumping. Flemmingh is the sire of Anky van Grunsven’s now retired Grand Prix horse Krack C, as well as Cathy Morelli’s BeSe, and Imke Schellekens-Bartels’ Melvin, among many other notable dressage horses and numerous ster and keur mares. Flemmingh’s offspring are big moving, tall, athletic, and long lined horses with three excellent gaits and an outstanding temperament.  He is known for passing on the “knee action” that makes his movement so appealing as well as the wonderful temperment.

Lingh’s pedigree offers performance blood that is sought the world-over. In 2009, a colt by Flemmingh (sire of Lingh) was the 2009 Oldenburg studbook stallion approvals champion. Also in 2009, a Vivaldi stallion was the Reserve Champion stallion of the Westphalian approvals. Vivaldi is by Krack C, a son of Flemmingh. Lingh colts entered the preliminary rounds for the KWPN approvals of 2010: C-Lingh MK, Cocksdorp Texel, Clint and Chideon. All four of these 2007 colts are still owned by their breeders, which emphasizes the breeders’ pride in these horses’ futures. See below for several of Lingh’s offsprings and their results. More details to follow.

Lingh’s sire Flemmingh is by Lacapo, who was licensed in Holstein in 1982. In Dr. Dietrich Rossow’s Holsteiner Breed Book, Lacapo is described as a “medium sized stallion with good expression and beautiful neck carriage… a very good mover. Offspring of medium frame with beautiful faces and lots of appeal. Very good movers.” Lacapo hails from the world famous Holstein stallion and “sire of the century,” Landgraf I. Landgraf’s list of show jumping progeny is endless, producing names like Freestyle (aka Lalique): winner of the Grand Prix at Aachen; Libero: the five time Dutch National Champion and ’94 World Cup winner; Linaro: 1991 Champion Holsteiner Stallion; and Landadel: 1985 100 Day Test Champion at Medingen and a sire in his own right of top dressage and jumping offspring.

Lingh’s dam Gazelle has been rewarded with the highest mare prizes of the KWPN: Ster, Pref, Prest. Gazelle’s sire Columbus jumped at international level with Jos Lansink. Gazelle’s line goes back further to the famous thoroughbred stallions Lucky Boy xx and Uppercut xx.

Lucky Boy xx contributed to Dutch sport horse breeding by siring many top jumpers on the international scene. Lucky Boy xx sired Calypso – Reserve Champion of the 1980 World Cup final and Winner of the 1982 final in Göteborg. Jacob Melissen comments in his 92/93 edition of The Leading Sires of the Netherlands that “Calypso has been of fundamental importance to the development of show jumping in the ‘new style’, he was one of those elastic, plucky horses that perform intelligently and are keen to tackle anything without being too hot. Bold horses, with a light-footed canter. The kind of horses in which the athletic action of the Thoroughbred is united with the balanced character of the part-bred. That’s what Calypso was, and that’s precisely what Lucky Boy contributed to Dutch sport horse breeding.”  Lucky Boy sired 16 stallion sons, the most famous of which was Octrooi, who had a successful career in the USA under the name Best of Luck.  THREE Lucky Boy offspring attended the 1984 Olympic Games in Los Angeles: Van Gogh, The Freak, and Medrano.

Uppercut XX sired 15 approved sons, including Nabuur, an international show jumper who went on to sire many international jumpers including The Saint ridden by Alwin Schockemohle of Germany. Uppercut’s sire Fighting Don was a grandson of Sir Gallahad III. Sir Gallahad III was a French Thoroughbred of tremendous influence in US racehorse industry.  Sir Gallahad sired 65 Graded stakes race winners and was the United States Champion Sire four times. He was the sire of Preakness Stakes winner High QuestJockey Club Gold Cup and multiple stakes winner Fenelon, and a record three Kentucky Derbywinners: Gallahadion,Hoop Jr., and Gallant Fox, who won the U.S. Triple Crown. Sir Gallahad also sired Roman, who won eighteen races and in turn sired fifty-four stakes winners, including Champion and Preakness Stakes winner Hasty Road.  Lingh’s pedigree represents generations of famous, awarded, and performing horses!

beau-vegas-adLingh – International Performance Stallion

Show results that put him at the top of the WBFSH Index, ranking him the number one dressage stallion and third in the world during his competitive years. Lingh’s performance career is one of the most impressive in dressage breeding history!

Lingh represents some of the finest jumping blood in warmblood breeding and because of his gorgeous type, conformation and fine gaits, he is also interesting for the ambitious Hunter breeder.
