AES Licensed Stallion Footloose LG is the perfect choice as an improver stallion particularly for eventing or show jumping. He has great genetics on both his sire (Numero Uno) and his dam (Ushi Piccina) sides with Keur and St Pref gradings featuring heavily on both sides. Footloose is a stallion with the right genetics for the future of
Footloose is well built with powerful hindquarters offering exceptional hip hock alignment giving him a
strong and powerful hind leg action. He combines exceptional jump with beautiful loose movement and length of stride. He is talented in both his ability to extend & collect in his movement and has excellent technique
over a fence.
Footloose LG would compliment both blood type mares to heavier stamped mares. His sire, Numero Uno, gained a 9 for his explosive take off at his grading. For breeders looking for a stallion to bring quality, temperament and innate
jumping ability along with an injection of TB quality (vvv Lady KillerXX), this lovely sports horse stallion has to be a good choice.
His Sire Numero Uno (Libero H v Langraf 1) has bred a prolific number of proven performance horses, mostly in show jumping but also in the other disciplines and has earned himself Keur rating in the KWPN Studbook with a breeding value in the 140’s (NL), scoring 97% reliability as a jumping stallion for the last two years and consistently in the mid to high 90’s since 2009 as a jumping stallion and was judged as an excellent jumper with a good potential for dressage. Numero Uno’s progeny have been judged at grading shows as having well made rectangular bodies with long necks which are well muscled a steep jumping shoulder and excellent jumping hind legs. Their conformation allowing flexibility, strength and agility. In 2013 WBSFH Numero Uno was in the top ten rankings for Show Jumping Sires along with Baboulet De Rouet, Kannan, Coronet Obolensky, Diament de Semilly and Contendro 1.
Footloose’s dam line is also impressive Ushi Piccina is a Keur Mare with by Royal Bravour (another horse with a high jumping breeding coefficient) who was, himself, a grand prix show jumper breeding an impressive number of jumpers (including Ushi Piccina). Ushi Piccina x Daisy, a state premium Keur mare, who bred 7 offspring including grand prix jumper Tatum and Arriba, both also Keur mares.
This handsome well made stallion is of course still young. He continues to show incredible talent in his training and this year started his competitive career in British Show Jumping under the very talented Chris Smith who has guided his early career with numerous double clears. Chris will take the reigns again this year with big plans and a busy schedule.
Footloose had his first foals in 2015 and one of his 2016 foals includes “Belizaro Vladimar” who was 1 of only 5 Elite Showjumping foals at this years British Futurity.
