Linguistic was  awarded a higher first premium and was the highest scoring 3 year old! The Evaluator described her frame as “a very nice picture” and she scored 9’s for her trot and canter which was described as “very athletic and agile”.

Linguistic or Tia as she is known at home is a lovely bay mare who takes her elegant looks and easy going temperament from her father Lingh as well as a super hindleg from her mother Tiara. Linguistic was the highest scoring three year old at her recent British Equestrian Federation Futurity evaluations.

Southern Cross Stud in the UK says ” We feel privileged to have one of the very few Lingh mares in the UK today and are looking forward to using her as part of our breeding program.  Linguistic has also bred a superb colt,  Peridot, by the exciting young stallion Pentagon’s Peron via embryo transfer. Peridot is a refined and elegant foal with a super friendly personality. His “surrogate” mother Rumour  carried him to allow Linguistic to begin her competitive career is proving to be a very relaxed mum and this seems to have rubbed off on Peridot.”

Peridot at 4 days old -  wow  Lingh is a Grandfather again ! PERIDOT – 4 DAYS OLD !!

Linguistic is 4 years old now and has recently started her training under saddle and is now in training with International Grand Prix dressage rider Anna Ross Davies and we are excited to see what this combination will achieve in the future. Linguistic’s sire Lingh is a modern dressage stallion with outstanding conformation.  Lingh’s offspring are described as being very elegant, light and athletic and Linguistic is no exception to this. Linguistic is a sensitive but responsive ride and has excellent conformation.  She has a bit of a spark about her but is a very kind mare.

Linguistic’s mother Tiara is by the stallion Metall whose offspring inherit his stunning conformation, and a high degree of quality and refinement. They are built very uphill and have beautiful heads. Their movements show great finesse with much power in the hind legs, lots of elevation in the front legs, and they have supple backs.  Her maternal Grandfather is Balzflug who is bred out of the best performance bloodlines in the Trakehner Studbook. His sire Habicht is noted as one of the most influential sires of excellent dressage ability, having produced many nationally ranked top mares and several approved stallions including Olympic Cocktail.
