ABOUT Lauriston

Licensed Oldenburg, Hannovarian, AES, KWPN, Bayern, Selle Francais,


His sire is Latus I, brother to Capitol I and II and full brother to Latus II. Latus I died as an eight year old when on lease to Zangersheide Stud.He did jump at 1.50 mtr. level before his untimely death. Lauriston's dam Gerlinde is by the international jumper Granit (by Goldfalk) and out of the famous international mare Andorra.( by Agram) She was unbeatable during her career ridden by Manfred Kloes. Gerlinde also produced Nariston and Fundus, both approved in Oldenburg.Other wellknown stallions from this family are: Feinbrand, Dinar. Lauriston's half sister Gardenia produced the approved stallions Landfurst and Sadenio. Also the Hamburg Derby Winner, Wendy, descends from this mare-line.


LAURISTON was the winner of the German 6 year old jumping Championships in '92 with the record score of 9.7 for style and scope. Bred by Paul Schockemohle. He was purchased by the Bolvorm Stables, Holland, for 2 million DM IN 1992.Under the name of Bolvorm's Lauriston he continued his National and International career ridden by Jos Lansink and Ben Schroder, winning in Modena and Waterloo. Last year, after a 5 year break from competitions he won the Derby in La Baule CSI-Veterans, stood at stud for 3 following months and jumped International 1.45 at Hickstead without any preparation and qualified for the Hickstead Speed Derby. At 17 years!!


Lauriston sired 5 International horses from his first Dutch crop of foals. Amongst these Catapult (Billy Toomey and Michael Whitaker) and Promise Me the new Grand Prix horse of Ian Miller (Can). Peter Wilde won the Dutch Jumping Derby at Valkenswaard on Lauriston jr. Rob Ehrens rode the mare Silanda successfully at International level, her 7 year old daughter is now with Jeroen Dubbeldam. Both Promise Me (Toronto) and Lauriston jr (Verona) have won World Cup points during last Autumn and were in the prizes at Calgary. An amazing feat for any stallion to produce 2 World Cup horses in one year, even more so as Lauriston only had a fraction of the mares his contempories have covered. Geoff Billington really rates his Largus as an international prospect. Jan Tops bought Nijhofs Maxim just before her accident. Lausana and Liberty Life 2 were born in Germany prior to the export of Lauriston and are jumping for Mexico and Germany. Laceful Z, Lassandro and Nairobi are the latest additions to Lauriston's international offspring. The Zangersheide stallion Quick Lauro Z is out of a daughter of Lauriston. Thanks to the quality of his offspring he is shooting up the World Breeding rankings. His German and Dutch breeding reports are also very positive. He has and index of 149 on the German '96 rankings (100 is the average)and passes on very good conformation and temperaments with athletic and elevated powerful movement. Not only does he throw show jumpers of the highest possible quality, he has also produced very exciting event and dressage prospects. James won The British Novice Eventing Championship at Gatcombe 2003 and Olympic Dressage rider Kirsty Mepham has high hopes of her latest Prix St.George ride Flyaway Mathere. Lauriston has bred 2 approved stallions so far: Nairobi (Hans Horn) and Agrovorm's Paddington (Ben Schroder) Lauriston was ranked 6th on the German Index '96 with 149 points for producing showjumpers.
