Pedigree Profile of Rivendell Lumineer
Lumineer is a great combination of both his sire Lissabon and his dam Carla. He promises to become a phenomenal horse.
Sire Lissabon, owned by Callaho stud, is by the stallion Lordanos, who continues to entrench himself as one of the finest sires of showjumpers in Europe, having already produced more than 23 licensed sons and scores of champions at all levels.
Damsire Sion, is a remarkable allrounder who passes on plenty of “blood” and excellent gaits. The granddam, Reinata (Contender), is full sister to the international competition mare Charisma (Markus Fuchs). This performance damline is further anchored by jumper breeding legends, Grannus and Siegesmund.
After his approval, Lissabon won both sections of his stallion performance test in Oldenburg. Trained by Heinrich Döwe, in 2003 he won 8 out of 9 classes for young riding horses, including the prestigious Damhus Cup. During his 5th and 6th year he was a serial winner up to M-level and won the Damhus Cup again. Thereafter Lissabon went to the Bundeschampionate Finals with Johannes Ehning, where he received outstanding scores of up to 9.3 for style. During 2006/2007 he continued his stellar career with Jens Baackmann, crowning 2007 with a victory in Vechta in the youngster tour (1.5m)
Lissabon’s short breeding record in Germany is equally remarkable. In addition to multiple champion foals and state premium mares, he produced four licensed sons of which Lissacor (Westphalia) and Lissaro van der Helle (Hannover) were awarded Premium. Lissaro went on to win the German Championships for 3 year old Riding Horses in 2008 and the 4 year Dressage Championship a year later. In 2010 Lissaro rewrote history by winning his third consecutive gold medal at the Bundeschampionate in Warendorf as well as being runner-up at the World Dressage Championships for Young Horses in Verden. In August 2009, at the Hannoverian auction for riding horses in Verden, another son of Lissabon, Let’s Go HRH, was sold to Rolf Goran-Göran Bengtsson for an auction record price of €130 000. Statistics of The German National Federation (FN), drawn from show and competition results in 2009 and again in 2010, continue to underline Lissabon’s breeding prowess. Placed well within the top 1% of Jumper Sires and top 5% of Dressage Sires, this once-in-lifetime stallion comfortably maintains his position as the best dual-purpose sire of Warmblood Horses in all of Germany.
Lumineer’s dam Carla was bought in 2006 as a two year old in Germany as we were amazed by her elasticity, cadence and attitude at this age. She was inseminated using Quintender semen, but sadly did not produce a foal before leaving Germany. Once in RSA, she has been used as a broodmare, as well as having been backed. Due to the quality and temperament of her foals, she will continue to be used as a broodmare in the stud.
Sire Concetto Famos, was successful under Meredith Michaels-Beerbaum in Grand Prix, Nations Cups and the Hamburg Derby, Concetto Famos now impressively continues his career in the breeding sector.
Two of his sons have been licensed: the first in Westphalia who was sold for 100,000 Euros and the second, a premium stallion at the Southern German Hengsttage, who sold for 50,000 Euros.
Among Concetto’s foals there were many show winners, also in 2008 at the shows in Donzdorf and Heiligenfeld. In 2004 a Concetto Famos filly took seventh place in the German Foal Championships in Lienen. Other offspring are now successful at medium (M*) level such as Concetto son/Hilmar Meyer, Cornetto/Joachim Heyer and the ribbon winning Bundeschampionat finalist, Con Palermo, who was one of the most expensive at the P.S.I. auction.
His Holsteiner sire Caletto I won team bronze at the 1983 EC in Hickstead/GBR under Dr. Michael Rüping. Among his 30 licensed sons you find Calvaro Z, Cambridge and Cantus.
His Danish bred dam, St.Pr.St. Sif, is a granddaughter of the trademark stallion Ramiro through Racot. In the third generation you find the Trakehner stallion Isländer who comes from the famous Isola Longa family.
Damsire Mytens xx, has recent;y become very popular and desireable in sporthorse breeding.
Mytens was born in the United States and sold to Britain as a yearling. He was very successful in training as a 2 year old and at the start of his 3 year old career until a tendon injury forced his retirement from racing. As a breeding stallion, in 1989/90 he was entered into the stallion competitions and was unique as the only Thoroughbred stallion to have completed all seven competitions including the finals.
Myten’s sire Spectacular Bid xx won 26 of his 30 starts and as a 3 year old and was unbeaten in both the Kentucky Derby and Preakness, but finished third in the Belmont Stakes, just missing victory in the world renowned Triple Crown. He later won the Marlboro and the Meadowlands Cup. He finished his career following an unbeaten season and 4 track records, claimed victory in the California’s Strub series, and the Washington Park Handicap, set a career earnings record, and gained the prestigious title of Horse of the Year. As recognition of his overwhelming career he joined the Hall of Fame in 1982. His pedigree can be traced back via Bold Ruler to the legendary stallions Nasrullah and Nearco.
Mytens dam’s sire Hoist the Flag is one of the more prestigious stallions in the United States.
In 1990 his first yearling fillies came up for inspection and Mytens fillies were successful at 3 provincial shows by taking the reserve champion. At the yearling show for Thoroughbreds, two Mytens colts gained a first premium, of which one was champion. Other successful offspring by Mytens include the 1999 winner of the German Young Event Championship; Magic Michael, currently competing at Prix St George and Harrison Himself, now competing in dressage at Prix St George and highly successful in combined dressage and jumping competitions. He stands at 8th place in the BHD rankings for his own winnings. In 2000 Mytens was the third placed sire for points earned by offspring in the hunter section on the NAWPN.
Mytens shows great technique and power that is successfully passed onto his progeny, along with his attractive conformation, stunning movement and jumping ability.
