Anne and Gert-Jan van Olst's number one dressage breeding stallion Lord Leatherdale will be focused on dressage in the future. His breeding career will, therefore, be put on the back burner.

Lord Leatherdale is a 12-year old Rhinelander bred stallion by Lord Loxley out of Fairless P (by Ferragamo x Anmarsch). He is bred by Werner and Heike Pleines in Germany.

He was licensed at the 2005 Westfalian Stallion Licensing in Munster-Handorf and first stood at stud at Ferienhof Stucker in Germany before moving to Van Olst stables where he had his hay days as a breeding stallion. He has sired licensed offspring Chippendale, Everdale, Glamourdale and Fairytale (now gelded).

"Since completing his stallion performance test, the focus for Lord Leatherdale has always been on breeding," said Van Olst. "Because of his busy schedule his sport career was always in the background even though he's trained at home at Grand Prix level. The table has turned now and sport will get his priority ahead of breeding. Lord Leatherdale is now at a nice age to accomplish things. He now gets his time in sport and we'll see where that takes us."

Lord Leatherdale has only been once competed, in Germany by Danish Daniel Bachmann Andersen at the 2011 CDN Zierow.
