Templar LS

Mare with a top talent and proven background to match

It is not often that a mare with this pedigree comes on to the market but we can't keep them all! We think she should be out competing with her undoubted talent and potential as a broodmare. That is her as a foal with her mother in the photo at the top of the screen.

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 himself produced notable offspring including Tiger Tale LS, Troy LS, Tiger Woods LS, Tiger Fair LS, Timbuktu LS & Trixie LS.


VICAR OF DIBLEY LS descends from one of the original Longspring bloodlines through her mother DECEMBER LS who competed herself in show jumping and show hunters. She was particularly talented at show jumping and won many classes and championships while competing up north with Claire Christie who was in NZ on a working holiday. December LS was out of the Blueskin II mare Odd Shoes who produced several good jumpers including DISGUISE LS.

Vicar of Dibley was by VENTURA LS who was a young stallion by VENTURA out of Distelette who was the only filly from the family that produced top horses including DENVER, DEALER LS, DALLAS COWBOY (exported) and DAKOTA (exported). This is a pedigree and background etched with success at all levels.


TEMPLAR will be broken in over the winter/spring and will be available for sale later in 2012 unless you are looking for a green horse. She is a beautiful filly with a strong body and good size. She has the talent to be a good jumper/eventer and with her pedigree will be an incredible broodmare in the future.
