GFS Lord of The Dance, or otherwise known as Django is a breathtakingly beautiful young stallion, tall, intelligent, kind, willing and a young horse who displays an abundance of natural athletic ability and presence. He is fast and eager to learn, sociable and sensible. This young horse stands out from the crowd with his grace and exceptional good looks. He is already standing at 16.3hh and a proven sire now of six absolutely perfect, purpose bred for eventing offspring.

He is registered and Licensed with the Anglo European Studbook

Ancestry

Django is unique in that his breeding is unreplicated in the typical European Dilute Warmblood horse. There is none of the usual Kinsky breeding, none of the commonly seen Polish Warmblood breeding and none of the popular but often replicated dilute German bloodlines used so extensively to produce dilute warmbloods. 

His breeding is both rare and of exciting, historical ancestry on his sires side. Rare and sought after Russian Trakehner and Akhal Teke breeding of incredible quality course through this special young stallions pedigree. Bloodlines specifically developed to produce offspring with exceptional temperament, excellent movement, stamina, heart and the agility of a cat. 

His dam hails from proven Hannovarian jumping and eventing lines on her sires side and some incredible high performance and big winning thoroughbreds on her dams.

Dam line

Malibu Breeze, is the dam of 'Django' she is a wonderful natured horse and an absolute beauty, who due to ligament damage caused by an accident became available to us after the end of her showjumping career.  She had her first foal in 2010, a colt by Treliver Decanter who was licensed and used here to produce three fantastic foals before being sold. Her 2013 cremello colt foal has also now been licensed as a stallion and will be standing in Scotland from 2016.

Breeze is by Malibu Galileo the 17hh Hanovarian eventing stallion who showed so much promise before sadly passing away due to a covering accident. 

 

 


Malibu Galileo was by Gymnast a prominent dressage and eventing sire who was in turn by Grenadier who was considered to be a sire of importance in producing dressage horses.

Malibu Galileos dam, Delta was a mare graded into the main stud book (British Warmblood Society). She won numerous hunter classes at county level and in 1993 became the Supreme Champion at the British Warmblood Show. Her sire, Atlantus was a foundation sire the British Warmblood Society. He produced highly graded sons and daughters as well as International Competition horses.

Her bloodlines trace back to the lauded Hanovarian stallions, Grande/Graf/Duellant/Lugano II/Der Lowe) on her sires side and her dam line provides the tremendous class, speed and grace of British, American and French thoroughbreds, Blushing Scribe/Blushing Groom/Red God/Nasrullah/Nearco and Pharos with her damsire, Super Concorde/Bold Reasoning/Primera/My Babu and Hail to Reason)

Breeze is a rarity in being a dilute warmblood with all the body and bone of her German ancestry and the power and grace of her thoroughbred dams bloodlines.

Character and Type

Django displays perfect manners in any and all situations, this has been his way from day one! This tall and very beautiful young stallion demonstrates absolutely superb mechanics and balance through walk to gallop and with each transition.

His sire, Destello was a Russian Trakehner x Akhal Teke. A rare and ​exceptionally exciting melding of two highly sought after bloodlines scarcely available outside of Russia. The ancient and highly prized bloodlines of the mysterious and highly glamorous Akhal Teke horse brings legendary stamina, physical and mental toughness, cat like agility and proven records in not only the three major disciplines but also in the sport of racing, endurance and puissance. 

Achievements to Date

GFS Lord of the Dance was successfully Graded and Licensed as a two year old with the Anglo European Studbook. Scoring consistent 7's as well as a 9 for his attitude, he did amazingly well for one presented so young.

'Django' is an absolute joy to work with and have on the yard. He is kind, mannerly and always tries his best to please.

He is still young and yet to be tested properly under saddle but he was started last year by the talented Frankie Price and proved both willing and a quick learner. He spent three weeks lightly schooling and hacking out both alone and in company before being turned away to mature and strengthen before we conside that he is ready for the next phase of his education. He will be starting work a little later this summer. GFS Lord of the Dance has  produced to date six absolute stunning foals, three  from the two year old test coverings we do to assess potential quality of future offspring should we choose to stand a stallion at stud. Two we have retained and the third has been sold to a professional eventer. This year he has once again made a mark on our breeding program with three exceptional foals and one still to come. 

So impressive are his offspring that we have made a decision to increase our 2019 foal crop to see more of this exciting young stallions offspring and promote him as a serious sire to stand at public stud both here in the UK and Internationally by frozen.
