Townshend LS (Tiger Moth LS – Dolly LS by Distelfink) is out of a mare bred on a similar cross to the international eventer GV Braveheart (Distelfink – Aureatta by Aureate II) that was placed 7th in the 1998 WEG with Australian rider Olivia Bunn but with a cross to Novel Kingdom being the sire of John Cottle’s Grand Prix showjumper Watch Me. He is a beautiful big strong horse much like his older brother Troy LS. His movement is outstanding as is his jumping.  Townshend LS is a beautiful big horse with a kind and willing nature. He is broken in and jumping under saddle. He moves with great balance and cadence and jumps with power and speed with good clean even legs in front and back.

Sire 

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.

TIGER MOTH LS (by TRIBUNE xx) produced notable offspring including Tiger Tale LS, Troy LS, Tiger Woods LS, Tiger Fair LS, Timbuktu LS & Trixie LS.

Dam

Dolly LS is a very tall mare with a beautiful pedigree. Dolly LS is bred on a similar cross to the international eventer GV Braveheart (Distelfink – Aureatta by Aureate II) that was placed 7th in the 1998 WEG with Australian rider Olivia Bunn but with a cross to Novel Kingdom in the middle – Novel Kingdom being the sire of John Cottle’s Grand Prix showjumper Watch Me.

The stud has retained two full sisters one Supernova LS 2006 that will be one to watch out for at shows the other has been retained as a broodmare and has already produced two beautiful Blood sisters to Townshend and Troy. This is a very fertile family that tends to produces a beautiful type with a good brain and tonnes of ability with a love for work a family to watch in the future.

Information

This family tends to throw size and lovely movement and Townshend LS is typical. With the added cross back to Distelfink, he carries some of the best bloodlines available in NZ. He is one of the stable favourites with his impeccable and lovable nature. Townshend LS is an amazing powerful horse with really big elevated movement. Again he has a superb jumping style and wants to be clean. 

Townshend LS has just been broken in and is currently in work and we plan on getting him out to some of the winter series shows so one to watch for.  He has an impressive jump and is an ideal prospect for the rider targeting the Age Series in showjumping. Mind you, his dressage like movement is bound to attract attention from that discipline! His full brother Troy LS is now out competeting with Anna Paarson and has attracted much attention to his ability e has been competed to 1.30m with scope to go much higher. Troy LS was competed in the ridden classes at the Horse of the Year Show as one of his first outings winning the jumping type and placing in the eventing type and Dressage classes for the 4 Year Old Sport Horses.
