Steppenwolf LS - 2008 Br Gelding EMH 16.3

Outstanding talent with good size and a spectacular jump

STEPPENWOLF LS (named for a rock band!) is destined to be something special. His mother TAILOR MAID LS already produced the Grand Prix jumper DAYLIGHT LS with Philip Steiner whose style of jumping was much admired on the circuit. This young horse is an ideal scopey type.

SUNSET SAM LS has a double cross back to DISTELFINK his sire SAM I AM - a full brother to the top jumper DIOMEDES LS now in Australia. DIOMEDES with rider Phillip Steiner was 1st in 8 classes and placed in another 33 for winnings of close to $15,000. Another full brother to SAM I AM is competing at top level in jumpers in the USA as DEVLIN LS. SUNSET SAM himself is an impressive strong type with excellent jumping technique that he passes on to his progeny oldest crop are from 2005. Sadly Sunset Sam LS died in 2010 so his progeny are now “limited editions”.


Tailor Maid LS was a very tall good looking mare. Her second foal DAYLIGHT LS was a Grand Prix showjumper with Phillip Steiner before his sale overseas. Her third 3rd foal DAIMLER LS is now standing at stud

This is a family that has always produced size going back to his great grandmother PHILOHNIAM who was a 17 hand thoroughbred mare whose full sister was GOING GRAY an A grade  showjumper with the Illston family.  His grandmother was WITZLEBEN by WITZBOLD, reknowned in New Zealand for producing showjumpers MONOPOLY (Canadian   showjumping team) and LUDO - both started in jumping with John Cottle. WITZBOLD also produced top dressage horses including   MOSAIC, PLAYSKOOL and many others.

His dam TAILOR MAID is a 3/4 sister to TRUE STORY LS who sold to the USA as a dressage horse.


STEPPENWOLF LS is broken in and available for sale as a five year old. We rate him highly as he is a lovely show jumping type with a long rein, powerful elevated movement and a pedigree to back up his potential. He is a big strong horse that would a heavier male rider.
