Exquisite black brown mare with floating paces off the floor movement and real presence.

Liberty has absolutely superb uphill paces, she exudes confidence, presence & literally commands you to look at her while she shows off, she is always the first to be noticed.

Liberty is now happy in her new home with Jill and she is known as "the Princess"!

Sire Va Tout
Her sire the Elite Stallion Va Tout competed successfully up to International Grand Prix Dressage, and is a member of the famous Ibikus Stallion line, he is the sire of a number of impressive offspring including the young Dressage Stallion Whitfield Grange Viking. Vatout's sire Wie Ibikus replaced his father Ibikus at Gestuet Haemelschenburg but stood for only one year before twisting his gut and sired four graded sons and many good dressage horses in this short time. Paternal grandsire Ibikus has transcended international barriers as an outstanding sire of competition horses and particularly dressage horses, with 15 graded sons in the Trakehner breed alone as well as other Breeds in Denmark. According to an analysis of sires standing at stud in 1995, printed in the Trakehner Hefte, the two main contributing sires from the Ibikus line are Va Tout and Santiago (Champion of his grading).

His dam Valjoscha from the highly successful performance Velegu line, is the maternal grandmother of another top class graded performance sire, Vivus. Her sire Gunnar used successfully to upgrade other breeds as well as in the Trakehner breed, has also had a wide European influence, siring both stallions and important mare lines as well as many competition horses.

Dam Libitina
Libitina is one of the Stud’s foundation mares and has produced some outstanding offspring. She has bred the 2006/7 Best British Bred Trakehner and Young Stock Champion Larkshill Lexington. At the British Dressage National Foal Show both Lakota and Lexington both scored 82% and were the highest placed Trakehners in their year. Legend came second at the British Dressage Young Horse Breeding Championships as a yearling. In 2005 she received the recognition she deserves for producing outstanding progeny when she won the Trakehner Breeders Fraternity’s Mare Family Championship, along with her daughters Larkshill Lakota by Kostolany and Larkshill Lexington by E.H. Hohenstein.
