Paying a visit to Lavita LGKS

On by LGKS

A year ago our Fjord mare Lavita LGKS (M: St.Pr.St. Lavina LGKS / F: B.Pr.H. Mr. Tveiten) born and grown up at our country estate found a new home with family Vogel. It is a real pleasure for us to see how the young mare developed during the last months thanks to loving care and intensive encouragement of her owners. This year Lavita was already successful in the field test at the Country Stud Moritzburg and became champion in the category special races of the three to six years old mares in the Saxon-Thuringian mares contest and was, furthermore, awarded "State Premium Mare" by the breeders association of Saxony-Thuringia. After challenging weeks of intensive training time in spring she is now allowed to relax. Lavita will spend the summer whthin her small flock at the meadows and with relaxed rides through the open country and forests.

We gladly accepted the invitation to visit Lavita. As breeders we are proud and lucky to see "our" mare that healthy, well-tended and cheerful. We are glad to have made the right decision for Lavita with Family Vogel as new owner and wish them many beautiful years together.  Lavita LGKS mit Anne Vogel

Only once within four years the Hessian association of pony and horse breeders presents the best young mares in an elite mare presentation. To take part in the „Store window of the best“, numerous breeders and guests came to the horse breeding center Alsfeld on June 26th this year. Altogether more than 100 mares registered for participation. The sector Fjord horses was represented with numerous top-class horses. Only within the group of the three to four years old horses, 15 mares were awarded by the Hessian pony association and received total scorings of 7.5 and more.

 

All the greater was the joy to see our Fjord mare Lalelu LGKS from VEH Valør Halsnæs and VES Lalinga from VEH Dylan, born at our country estate in 2013, at one of the first places. In advance, she was scored 8.0 and awarded during the studbook registration of the Hessian pony association. During the elite mare presentation Lalelu became winner of the three years old Fjord mares and became reserve winner in the total scoring of all Fjord mares. A silver medal of the FN (German horse breeders and horsemen's association) complemented this great breeding success.
