LaBamba SE and rider/trainer Jessica Dalton began the season at Third Level at Thunderbird Show Park, June 2017. They achieved Open Third Level Reserve Champion at this show, missing champion by only 0.2%! Their success continued to the British Columbia Provincial Championships where they again took home Open Reserve Champion at Third level. They have just returned home from Arroyo Del Mar in San Diego and the Del Mar Horsepark where the success continued!
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 2017/18, breeding via AI (fresh cooled) is available. Stud fee is $1250 CAD to approved mares.
We're offering a very special discount to the first three mares booked for 2018. Three breedings at $800 each!
