Pedigree profile of Rivendell Theoden
D.O.B 14/11/2017 - Titanic (Imp KWPM) x Larino (KWPN) x Iroko
Theoden is the last offspring of the imported Belgium stallion Titanic. Titanic was one of the best showjumping stallions ever seen in South Africa.
Titanic was by the stallion Cavalier, who is one of the most successful KWPN stallions in international showjumping. By the name of San Patrignano Mister, this grey claimed major successes in the international arena with Franke Sloothaak. The combination won more than 40 international competitions; Grand Prix, Puissance and Speed classes. After his successful showjumping career, Cavalier returned to the Netherlands where he has been used for breeding ever since.
Offspring from Cavalier's first breeding seasons are already successful. International showjumpers such as; Tinello Isha ridden by Albert Voorn, Blushing Groom under John Popely, Illusion under Jörne Sprehe and FAN Cavala ridden by Eddie Macken among the best known.
Like the famous Olympic jumper Felix, Cavalier is also a son of the sire Maykel. Cavalier's dam Wina (s. Orthos) is a member of the reputable northern Netherlands Sina family. This excellent breeding family has produced numerous national and international sport horses such as the international showjumpers Piccolino (s. Notaris) under Renéé Tebbel, Maltstriker (s. Abgar xx) under Eric Wauters, Oleandra (s. Farn) under Peter Postelmans and Pierrot (s. Marco Polo) under Emile Hendrix. The stallion Quadrifoglio (s. Cavalier) who was very successful during the young horse championships at Zangersheide has already achieved great results in the international show jumping ring with Italian rider Jerry Smit.
Titanic’s damsire is the stallion Joost, a Holstein stallion who produced many international showjumping horses.
Tango is out of the premium mare Zivana, who is by the stallion Larino.
Larino is a son of the sports horse producer of the 21st century, Olympic Concorde. Concorde already has a great number of children that perform at international level. Larino has in his pedigree four famous and successful showjumper producers. Larino’s dam Erina is a daughter of the famous Ramiro offspring, Armstrong. In the report the KWPN judge made, she is described as a very nice mare with a lot of expression. The stallion Larino is out of a lineage that produced many sports horses in the motherline. For example great grandmother Rosalinda (Cassy) got a 10 for jumping under the saddle at her IBOP in 1981. At an older age this mare won many 1.30 classes with Janny Horsey.
Grandmother Warina, by Ridder, is a ster-preferent-performance mare. She produced the international jumper Romulus, which was second in the Grand Prix of Gothenburg with Peter Geerink and the approved stallion Couperus. He is for example the sire of the famous stallion Mr. Blue, which jumps extraordinary well with Alice Haas. The very interesting motherline of Larino starts with the dominant Holsteiner stallion Normann. At Ermelo during the 70 day Performance Test, Larino was described by the jury as a stallion which jumps with a very good foreleg technique and a very good use of the back. Moreover Larino shows a lot of scope and a superb canter. Larino was Reserve Champion of the IAN-competition for 4 year old horses in 1997 in the Netherlands and also at the Finals of the UTV jumping class for 4 year olds. At the first round of the Stallion Competition at Giesbeek Larino was awarded two times a nine for his jumping technique and scope. In 1999 Larino and Peter Geerink started their international career by participating successfully in the Youngster Cup at Arnhem, The Hague and Mechelen and he was awarded ‘the coming stallion’. In 2001 Larino made his Grand Prix debut in style. He finished 2th in The Hague, 3th in Valkenswaard and he had a fantastic clear round in the nations cup in Rotterdam, as well as equal 6th in the Grand Prix. He was the youngest competitor at the Dutch Championships in Mierlo, where he finished 6th. His oldest offspring, Redefin and Siep, are making a big impact on the jumping scene by winning at the IAN-finals at Ermelo in 2002 and 2003. Larino’s offspring now have international publicity. Redefin was sold to Canadian Olympic rider Ian Millar and Rivel C. went to Kris Kappler in the USA.
Zivana’s damsire is the stallion Iroko.
