About Locksley I

locksley_by2_rmLocksley was the first in line to bring top honors to his highly acclaimed sire and dam; the Champion stallion Londonderry and the States Premium Hanoverian mare Wildblume. Locksley qualified for the Bundeschampionat with an overall score of 8.6. He was the second Reserve Champion of the Hanoverian Stallion licensing in 2004 and finished his stallion performance testing in Adelheisdorf as a Class I stallion, earning a dressage index of 127.54 and a jumping index of 111.38.

Finishing 3rd in the testing overall, Locksley distinguished himself as a quality individual achieving a perfect score of 10 for his trot, 9’s for his walk and canter, and 8’s for his rideability and jumping ability. He is succeeded by two full siblings, both licensed stallions as well, with Bundeschampionat titles and top honors to add to the family accolades; the pairing of the Londonderry and Weltmeyer bloodlines has been undeniably successful.

Locksley’s full brother Locksley II won the 2006 German National Championships as a 4-year old, just like their sire Londonderry. Londonderry himself was Champion of the 1997 Hanoverian Stallion Licensing. In 1999 Londonderry was named Champion Young Hanoverian Stallion, and Federal Champion at the Bundeschampionat. In 2001, he claimed the

Reserve Champion title for Riding Stallions. Londonderry’s success and that of his progeny greatly contributed to his sire Lauries Crusador xx being named Hanoverian Sire of the Year in 2007.

Locksley stood at the Hanoverian State Stud Celle for two years. In 2010, Locksley was given a very high 152, placing him readily into the top 1% of all German warmblood stallions. The breeding index of The breeding value index is indicative of the performance potential a sire passes on to his offspring. His foals readily acquired his expressive front leg and demonstrate his reliable influence for refinement. In early 2007, Harmony Sporthorses acquired Locksley and imported him to the US. Locksley campaigned at Prix St. Georges in 2012 with scores consistently above 65% and successfully competed at the 2012 USDF/ABIG Regional finals at PSG, placing 8th in a competitive championships.

At a relatively young age, Locksley’s sire Londonderry (right) (Lauries Crusador-Warkant-Eiger I) has produced Champion stallions and sons marking the top of their peer group, including Liberty Gold, Locksley I and Locksley II.londonderry-2

Grandsire Lauries Crusador xx (below) was named Hanoverian Sire of the Year in 2007, given an impressive list of successful offspring in international sport and successful sons and daughters. Lauries offspring that we know from sport include Le Bo (Carola Koppelmann) Lesotho (Ellen Schulten-Baumer), Laurentianer (Marlies van Baalen), Little Big Man (Falk Rosenbauer) and Le Primeur (Marie-Line Wettstein, Switzerland). His well-known licensed sons include Lancier, Longchamp (Reserve Bundeschampion in ’95), Londontime, and Londonderry. The 2000 Hanoverian licensing Champion stallion Don Crusador (Donnerhall) was out of a Lauries Crusador daughter.

lauries-crusaderAccording to Dr. Ludwig Christman: “Lauries Crusador improves the frame of a horse. He puts on the long legs that we like, and the big shoulders that we hope from a Thoroughbred. …They are very good in their mind, very cooperative, also good for collection. From their mind, their interior they are very good horses. In general they have very good movement but they are also very trainable so the movement gets better under saddle….”

Locksley also bears the powerful influence of his damsire Weltmeyer (below). Here again is a sire whose pre potency in producing international athletes, influential stallions, and valuable mares is well noted. Weltmeyer was the Champion of the Hanoverian stallion licensing in 1986 and won the Bundeschampionat title with scores of 10 for his trot, 9.5 for his canter, and 8 for his walk. Another score of 9.5 for conformation and overall impression sealed his title. weltmeyer2At his stallion performance testing, Weltmeyer prevailed once more to win with a dressage index of 143.95 and a jumping index of 141.44. As of the printing of the 2007 Hanoverian Stallion book, Weltmeyer has produced 85 licensed sons, including the most impressive stallions Wolkenstein I, II, and III and the Welt Hit family of stallions 1-6. Weltmeyer’s sire World Cup (Woermann) is also the sire of Walt Disney and Warkant. To further the family tree Woermann is the sire also of Wenzel I and II.

In Locksley’s third generation is the stallion Derby, a son of Duellant (Dolman). Duellant was a robust stallion with great expression and enormous trotting movement. His most prominent offspring in sport was Dr. Klimke’s Dux and Willie Schultheis’ Doublette. Duellant left his mark in nearly every German breed. In the Hanoverian breed, the list of Duellant sons that whose influence is notable includes Duft I and II, Duden I and II, Derby, Dünkel, Durban, Dezember, and Davos.

Locksley embodies his illustrious pedigree by offering breeders all the hoped for qualities in a top dressage stallion. With his elegant lines and long legs, Locksley presents a thoroughly modern picture while displaying the spectacular movement, rhythm and expression for which the Hanoverian is revered.
