LaBamba SE and rider/trainer Jessica Dalton had a dynamite 2017 show year at Third level with fantastic scores in Canada and the USA including two Reserve Championships. We couldn't be more proud of their success. Jessica has continued to train and school the stallion this year, all throughout her pregnancy! The possibility remains they may yet be back in the show arena this year after her baby has arrived, due in mid July! We can't wait to meet the little rider to be!
Affectionately known as Ritchie, LaBamba SE was foaled in Alberta June of 2010 out of a Canadian Warmblood mare, Fronta De Line, by Westfalen stallion Frontenac.
Amanda purchased Fronta De Line and then went in search for her ideal stallion. When she discovered Lacado, the match was made! Lacado (Lacapo x Cor de la Bryere) is a grand prix dressage, branded, Holsteiner stallion trained at Isabell Werth's barn and imported to the US.
LaBamba SE is well known for his wonderful disposition and fantastic hind quarter and canter work which he consistently produces in his offspring. A delight to have in the barn and at the show, he's relaxed and focused and easy to handle.
Recently the RPSI announced their partnership with the Westfalen verband and adopting their name. Although LaBamba SE is a branded Zweibrucker, his offspring will now be registered and branded Westfalen.
We are delighted with the consistency of the foal crops LaBamba SE has produced. They all demonstrate clear, correct conformation early on and strong, rhythmic canters. Most will not trot until they are more than a month old.
The first colts were born in 2014 and are starting their under-saddle careers. They are proving to be simple to start, eager to work, pleasing and sensible. Add to that their natural movement and breeding to LaBamba SE is an obvious choice!
For 2018/19, breeding via AI is available. Stud fee is $1250 CAD to approved mares.
