Dam Line:

Leroy Brown’s dam line features world class bloodlines. His dam Gold Finch NZPH is sire by Orlando – Orlando is a stallion with a lot of scope and superior technique along with a gentle temperament, he is horse for all riders. These traits are passed along to his offspring who have proven themselves as successful sport horses throughout the world.

Orlando sadly passed away last year. He remains one of the stars of the breeding world, and his offspring are very sought-after at auctions. Most of his offspring are of great nature and can be seen in amateur and high level competition.”

His dam’s dam, Vibe Blue NZPH is by Mr Blue, a legacy in sport horse breeding. Mr Blue enjoyed an extremely successful jumping career being a winning Nations Cup and World Cup mount and was also selected for the Atlanta Olympic Games.

His offspring have proven to be remarkable, producing a range of top level show jumper’s and Grand Prix winner; Plot Blue who carried Marcus Ehning to victory in the 2010 World Cup final in Geneva is perhaps the most successful. His breeding legacy is also being continued through his offspring, such as Zirocco Blue VDL who is following in his father’s footsteps as a world class show jumper and sire.
