|The first Reserve Champion of the 2010 Holsteiner licensing in Neumünster. Lyjanero is a capital Holsteiner in an elegant format with phenomenal gaits, and in spite of his good size and large frame, he has a harmonious body with a brilliant step-off and is a revelation at the jump. His balance and intelligence made a good impression when he was presented for the first time under saddle. When commenting on the individual stallions, Holstein\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s Breeding Director, Dr. Thomas Nissen, showed his enthusiasm, saying \\\\\\"It is only seldom that we have a stallion here who jumped with so much vision, calm and ability!\\\\\\"
After being stationed in eastern Europe for many years, his sire Landos was ordered back to Holstein where he passed on his versatile traits with an exceptionally high \\\\\\"quota\\\\\\" proven by such highly convincing examples as the Grand Prix dressage horse, The Lion King B ridden by Rudolf Zeilinger and also Ellen Bontje (NL), as well as the international show jumper Magic Bengtsson ridden by Peder Fredericson (SWE) who took fourth place individually at the Olympic Games in Athens and a silver medal on the team. The attempt to blow new life into the extremely performance strong Lord line through Landos was obviously effective and produced the licensed stallions Lordanos, Lantino, and now Lyjanero. The dam\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s sire, Casall, was successfully ridden by Rolf-Göran Bengtsson in international show jumping competitions, and is also one of the well-established sires in Holstein. The third generation sire Carthago was continuously successful on the Dutch Nations Cup team with Jos Lansink.
The well-known Holstein line 18 a 1 produced more than 25 licensed stallions, including Allo Par Bleu (licensed on the basis of his performance in sport; private stallion Rhineland-Pflaz), Ars Vivendi (private stallion Westphalia), Attaché Gold (Vice Bundeschampion 2005, private stallion Oldenburg), Baltimore (private stallion Rhineland-Pfalz), Contango de Laubry (BEL), Logarithmus (State Stud Dillenburg), the esteemed Lucarlo (private stallion Hesse, Thuringia), Quamiro (2006 WC participant; private stallion Bavaria), the international multi-winner Vornholzer Romanow (private stallion Westphalia, BEL, Hesse), Romeo (Holstein Verband) and Untouchable (NL) as well as the internationally successful show jumper, Roofs ridden by Rolf-Göran Bengtsson.
