Our Totilas colt is here and he is quite simply magnificent! He is everything we
dreamed of and more.

He is elegant and refined with long legs and the most beautiful head. His walk is huge and he is showing so much cadence in his movement - it takes my breath away. The combination of his parents World Class genes has resulted in a World Class stallion prospect.

We have named him Larkshill Total Triumph because we believe he is just that and we couldn't be more proud!

What is really special about this colt is his intelligence. Never before have we seen a colt foal as bright. As soon as he was born he was very quick to stand and get the hang of his long legs and straight over to the milk bar and latched on without any trouble, very unusual for a colt . He stands quietly for his foal slip to be put on and already lifts his feet up for checking every day - you can just see him working everything out and wanting to please - just like his famous sire!


August 2011
Toto is awarded a Foal Premium by the Oldenburg Verband. The Vice President of the Oldenburg Verband - Herr Bodo Willms said he was the best Totilas colt he had seen in Europe!! High praise indeed! This boy is World Class and a Stallion Prospect.

Sire Totilas
Three-times World Champion, triple World record holder and best dressage horse of all time!

Totilas has changed the world of dressage sport and he is now on the brink of changing the world of dressage horse breeding. This stallion has set record after record in quick-fire succession. He has broken the world record three times - in 2009 at the European Championship with 90.75 % in the freestyle class, in London with 92.3 % and at the CHIO Aachen 2010 with 86.45% in the Grand Prix Special, where he was awarded the perfect score of 10.0 a total of 28 times. Within the space of only two years, this exceptional stallion has won all the titles there are to win. He won two individual World Championship titles in Kentucky, he was European Champion at Windsor, World Cup winner in 2010 and he won the Dutch Championship twice. He also won team gold medals at the European Championship as well as the World Championship. No other dressage horse has ever electrified spectators in the way that Totilas does. We're looking forward to his future achievements with his new rider, Matthias Rath.

Totilas' sire, Gribaldi, also competed successfully at international level with Edward Gal. He was Trakehner champion stallion and Trakehner stallion of the Year in 2008. Gribaldi has consistently produced top-class horses such as World Cup winner IPS Painted Black/Anky van Grunsven, Grand Prix winner Sisther de Jeu/Edward Gal, Peter Pan/Beatriz Ferrer-Salat, BMC Pasternak/Coby van Baalen and Zardin Firfod/Patrick Kittel. Eight-times advanced dressage class winner Girasol, ridden by Nadine Capellmann, is one of the biggest young Grand Prix hopefuls and approved stallion Unee came second in the Nuremberg Burgpokal in 2010. Totilas' dam has produced one intermediate and one advanced level dressage horse and Totilas' full sister, Uusminka, is also in training at Edward Gal's yard. Granddam Elsa produced the advanced dressage horses Talan and Uljanoff. The dam line, which includes a lot of Holstein blood, has produced numerous approved stallions such as Guiminko, Olympic W, Vindicator, Try Time, Racketeer, Amingo and many successful competition horses.
Totilas is a living sports legend that is destined to become a breeding legend!

Dam St.Pr.St Show Hit
St.Pr.St Show Hit is one of only 100 mares worldwide to be approved to be bred to the Dressage sensation Moorlands Totilas! She is expecting a foal by Totilas in May 2011. She was purchased at the 2005 Brightwells auction and is a truly sensational mare. She comes from three generations of State Premium mares. She is by the World Champion stallion Show Star who is one of Sandro Hit’s most successful young sons.  Show Hit was awarded her State Premium title at the prestigious Elite mare show in Münster-Handorf where she competed against 80 mares selected from throughout Germany. She was awarded outstanding marks for her conformation, movement and type.

In 2008 Carl Hester named Show Hit the 2008 Reserve Champion Dressage Broodmare at the BEF Elite Championship Show. Her first foal Larkshill Riaza was graded with a Verband Premium, her daughter Larkshill Supremacy was graded Elite and scored marks of 9.16 and was the highest scoring dressage horse of the qualifier, beating all the older horses. Her 2009 De Niro foal is a sensational black colt Larkshill Decadence who was awarded the coveted Oldenburg Foal premium. Her 2010 colt
Larkshill Debonair by De Niro was also awarded coveted Oldenburg Foal premium and has been sold as a stallion prospect - how exciting!

Her sire Show Star is a Premium Stallion, he became vice Champion riding horse at the Oldenburg State Championships in Rastede as a 3 year old. He went on to be the Champion at the German Federal Bundeschampionate as a 3 year old & Vice Champion as a 4 year old. Show Star is still a young Stallion and is currently competing at PSG. Sandro Hit of course needs no introduction - he is already writing sporting and breeding history!
