Tiger Tale LS

Our super star pony - 7th on Pony Grand Prix Circuit with Emily Fraser in limited starts

Tiger Tale LS (by Tiger Moth LS out of Dresden LS by Distelfink) is an outstanding youngster with a great attitude and good looks that always attracts favourable comment. His bloodlines represent a combination of the stud's top performance horses through his sire Tiger Moth LS,out of a full sister to Super Moth, and his dam Dresden LS, a full sister to Falcon. He is particularly even in his jumping style which makes him an ideal showhunter type of export quality.

TIGER MOTH LS is out of a full sister to the legendary JEEP SUPER MOTH who won more than 75 classes including 44 at GP level and is by TRIBUNE who is a TB with the valuable French bloodlines going back to Veux Manoir. Tribune was by TRIC TRAC who still holds a major place on the NZ all time career wins for showjumping progeny notably because of his sons NATIONWIDE and MR KINCAID; and eventer KIWI who was on the Australian Event Team with Andrew Hoy.  NATIONWIDE won the Horse of the Year title twice with Maurice Beatson and MR KINCAID once.

TRIBUNE himself produced notable offspring including CHIEF JUSTICE bred by Jenny & Campbell Draper who was a top young event horse before being sold to Australia for top money.


Tiger Tale LS is out of Dresden LS by Distelfink. She herself is a very attractive little black mare from one of the studs top families. She is a full sister to NRM Falcon who with Catriona Williams (nee McLeod) won 2 World Cup rounds in NZ, won the Horse of the Year Showhunter title, the Norwood Gold Cup and the Bell Tea Grand Prix at the Horse of the Year. He competed in Europe and qualified NZ to send a rider to the Olympics on his performance (sadly it was not Falcon that ended up going!). 


Tiger Tale LS was broken in during January of 2010 and has only been to a few shows but in a short time he has left quite an impression. He has a number of clear rounds upto 1.10 showjumping and was 4th in the 5 Year Old Show Hunter Championship at the NZ Young Horse Showjumping Championship Show in Taupo in April 2010. Before that, Tiger Tale LS competed in the ridden classes at the Horse of the Year Show where he was well admired and was named Reserve Champion Ridden Sport Horse.

That family can be small but have big hearts. He is a big jumper but also with a beautiful style. He also has beautiful movement and would easily go eventing as well.

 He is a lovely looking horse. A "good TB" in type. He is more than 60% TB. He is a very pretty horse with a big front end. Beautiful big eye. And lovely temperament Tiger Tale LS is stands out and is admired where ever he goes. We would easily recommend him to a young rider. He is an absolute honey. No vices. Easy to shoe, float do anything with.

His full brother Tiger Woods LS at 6 years has just started eventing with a young rider and has already been placed in his second start. An amazing jumper who loves and is really bold cross country.
