Ventura LS

1996 Bay NZ Sport Horse stallion - 16.3 hh (170cm)

By VOLTAIRE II out of DISTELETTE LS by DISTELFINK

VENTURA LS was a fabulous jumping talent that we used over mares for one season before his tragic death in a paddock  accident. We have retained two fillies for stud duties.

VENTURA LS was by Seattle Lodge stallion VOLTAIRE II out of one of Longspring's best producing bloodlines in DISTELETTE  (full sister to DENVER, DEALER, DALLAS COWBOY and DAKOTA). VOLTAIRE's bloodline represents some top international jumping lines through CONCORDE and NIMMERDOR. 

VENTURA himself was loosejumped and showed top class jumping ability and movement as a youngster. He was a big horse at 16.3 hh. He died before his time, but the stud are encouraged by the first of his mares produce in VICAR OF DIBLEY with her foal by TB stallion CHROME. The two Ventura fillies will be retained by the stud.
