What the breeder says about this successful damline: “This line represents performance, intelligence, exceptional jumping reflexes and a very straightforward personality.”
Probably the best-known descendant of the line is the two-time German champion Diaron OLD.
The foundation mare Lindauway I was a trotter mare. In her breeding career, she produced Petite Comtesse by Prinz Gaylord, who was very successful to the 1.40 m category and later produced a licensed colt. Another daughter of Lindauway I remained at the stud farm, Linda by Efendi.
Linda produced Ingo by Inschallah, who won numerous intermediate jumping competitions with Jürgen Ernst. Following an incident at pasture with the pony mare Loana (probably a cross between a Welsh and an Arabian, no proof of lineage), Ingo produced the hunter belonging to the breeder’s father: Ignaz. Back then (1970s), it was difficult and very expensive to get registrable papers, which is a great shame. Because the double-registered Ignaz would have done very well in any 1.30/1.35 m jumping competition – with any rider!
Another son of Linda, Bubble Gum by Beach Boy, just under 15 hands, was successful in the intermediate two-star category for show-jumping. With the pony Loana, Bubble Gum sired super-pony Bubble’s Lollipop, who won multiple titles at the German and European Championships under Karen Nikolai and Josch Löhden. Linda’s daughters were also impressive. Day Date by Domino won the Goldene Peitsche in Nörten-Hardenberg with Beat Mändli (SUI).
Her daughter Lindauway II was the mother of VDL Group Miss Untouchable by Chacco Blue (1.60 m with Leopold van Asten/NED), Lenda-Cara by Come-On, dam to Campitello by Concetto (1.60 m with Alexander Hinz), Cestlavie by Cornet’s Stern (up to 1.35 m with 16-year-old Marlen Oertel), Claire-Marie by Cornet’s Stern (won pre-novice and novice dressage, then sold in the USA), Diaron OLD by Diarado, licensed two-time German champion, now successful on the international youngster tour and a winner in the under 1.40 m category.
The daughter, Linda-Dolores by Domino, was also used as an additional brood mare.
Linda-Dolores first bore Roxette-Dolores by Rebell Z I, who was sold in Canada and achieved success with Jennifer Grey up to the 1.60 m category. Her son Carlogero by Colander took part multiple times in the European Championships for Young Riders as a pair with Wilma Marklund (Sweden), her son Pentagon by Pardarco was successful up to S** level, while Balou’s Day Date by Balou was able to impress in the 1.60 metre jumping with US rider Molly Ashe. Tiger Lilly by Balou also joined the competitive rankings with a US rider. She also competed in the 1.60 metre show-jumping category with Jessica Springsteen. Blue Balou by Balou showcased her talents with Manuela Lachnit in the 1.40 metre show-jumping.
Another daughter remained with the breeder. Paloma-Dolores by Pardarco was very successful in the free jumping event in Vechta and did very well in her mare performance test in Hanover. Sadly, she died after the birth of her only foal.
This foal is the mother of Chaplin: Castagnetta by Castino. She is very responsive to ride, with exceptional pedigree and great jumping reflexes. She has already produced a breeding filly by Diamant de Plaisir (2018) and has already impressed audiences this year with Chaplin by Comme Prévu.
Sire Comme Prévu is wowing the crowds once again this year with his jumps. Licensed as a premium stallion, he was able to finish in the Grand Final in the World Championships for Young Showjumpers and was crowned grand champion by the Oldenburger Verband.
Damsire Castino is a son of Holstein stamp stallions Cassini II and Caretino. He received the incredible score of 10.0 for his 70-day test both for free jumping and for show-jumping, making him the overall winner in the jumping category. He has now made a name for himself in the international arena.
Padarco van het Hertsfeld placed in the World Cup final in Las Vegas with Otto Becker. He is a descendant of the famous Darco and has produced numerous international champion show-jumpers at the 1.60 m level.
