Lordanos is an amazing foundation sire. His successful offspring drew attention to this great stallion. In 2013, Lordanos was named the top jumper's sire in the United States by the United States Equestrian Federation (USEF).

Lordanos' career began by winning nearly 40 competitions for young jumpers. He was successful in 1.40m and 1.50m classes for incredible eleven years.

He was successful as the "family horse" because he has won big classes with all three riding Sosaths - Janne, Gerd and Hendrik. He and Janne Sosath-Hahn competed in a puissance class, successfully clearing a wall 2 meters high.

Lordanos has an unparalleled character, extraordinary ridability and is an extremely talented show jumper. He has produced a very large number of incredibly successful offspring and he is regarded as one of the greatest sires in the world.

After a long sporting career, Lordanos was retired from sport at the age of 18 and enjoyed his retirement on our stud. Lordanos passed away in the pasture at the age of 28. We look back with gratitude on many wonderful years together. For us he was a family member for more than a quarter of a century. Since the licensing in 1995 Lordanos has been at his home with us and inspired us every day anew with his exceptional personality.

Gerd won show jumping competitions with him in series. Janne and Hendrik celebrated their first victories in A- and also in S-jumping. He went on the same tournament A-style jumping with the children and the grand prix with Gerd. All these years he was a friend we could always rely on 100%.

For hundreds of riders and breeders he is the sire of their once-in-a-lifetime horse. No other stallion with us ever had as many fans as he did. He produced the greatest children's horses and equally top athletes for the big tour. All in his type, just a real foundation sire.

Lordanos is a descendent of the famous and high profiled "Ramiro line" 776 and a guarantee for maximal inheritance of performance and talent.

The sire of Lordanos is Landos, one of the sons of the impressive stallion Lord. On Landos' dam side, there is the very interesting blood of Calypso I and Capitano.

In the third generation there is the bloodline of Calypso I, who is the sire of some of the world’s top dressage and show jumping horses.

The blood of the top stallion Cottage Son xx is also very dominant in Lordanos' pedigree.

A lot of international riders ride offspring of Lordanos successfully at the important shows: Lordan (Nayel Nassar, won  $1Mio Grand Prixs and World Cups in the US, out of a mare by Landor S, bred at our stud), La Vista (Sandra Auffarth, 3rd place Hamburg Derby 2018), Lorielle (Hendrik von Eckermann, S*** successful), La Casino (Christian Kukuk, 2nd place German Masters Stuttgart), La Bamba (Jose Antonio Chedraui, won the $1Mio Grand Prix in Mexico), Lady Lordana (Hendrik Sosath, S-*** successful), Lou (Meredith Michaels-Beerbaum), Let’s Fly (Rodrigo Pessoa, winner CSI**** in Rom 2009), Lumos (Amateur Andreas Brünz, Victor in the big price of Mannheim 2008), Larissa (Dirk-Thomas Liehr), Lord Pik (Kai-Antonius Diekmann), Lucca (Anneke Wilharm), Larson (Heiner Rohrmann), Lex Lugar (Carsten-Otto Nagel, best horse in Aachen in the price of Europa 2008, Derby-winner 2010), Lord (Jürgen Kurz), Lissabon (Jens Baackmann), Lord Lohengrin (Karl Brocks), Lord Sandro (Uli Kirchhoff) und Laokoon (Hendrik, Janne und Gerd Sosath).

These and many others have been successful in the big classes. In 2010, the victory of Lex Lugar and Carsten-Otto Nagel at the Hamburg Derby belongs to the most special results. The year before, Hendrik was pleased about an excellent 4th place with Laokoon during the heaviest jumping of the world. In the same year, Laokoon was a standard winner during puissance show jumping competitions.

Many more children are placed or have won internationally around the world 1.60 m jumpings, such as Adriano M, Lazzarone, Le Grand or First Leon. The exact figures are diffucult to be determined as they are rarely included in the statistics.

Lordanos presents a good number of horses which qualified for the "Bundeschampionat" every year. After Lumos' victory in Warendorf in 2004, Light On was a high placed finalist in 2007 and 2008. In 2010, Lemwerder became Hanoverian champion of the 5-year-olds. Furthermore, many other descendants of Lordanos were placed at the "Bundeschampionat" in the last years.

The number of licensed Lordanos offspring has grown meanwhile up to more than 60, among them Livester. His daughter Lara Croft became winners mare of the OS federation in 2008. In 2009, Lordanos appears once more as a dam's sire of the OS-winners mare Raja Luzandra by Ludwig von Bayern in Rastede and his daughter Lafayette became OS-winners mare in 2016.

Highly successful in dressage was Tailormade's Lancelot by Lordanos, who won the top competitions for young dressage horses in Denmark.
Lordanos passes on his beautiful type and he is compatible to nearly every type of mares. His descendants show best character and performance, high rideability and best ability to jump.
