Orange Crush LJS

​Orange Crush LJS is retained by LJS to join our broodmare band in future


Orange Crush LJS 2019 KWPN filly by Innverness (Innkeeper/Secretariat/Parabol) out of Saretta (Olympic Ferro/Saluut) is a modern athletic sporthorse who has enough "blood" to do well in eventing but also possesses "old" proven warmblood jumper lines close up in pedigree with many of them equally well at dressage as they are in jumping. This proven versatile blood can be traced back in many of today's upper level modern dressage and jumper competitors. https://youtu.be/7BDhlsMUVdk


Her sire, Innverness, is a 2006 Oldenburg/ISR stallion bred by Hilltop Farm. He is by the thoroughbred stallion, Innkeeper (Secretariat/Mr. Prospector/Northern Dancer) and out of Hilltop’s Parlez (Parabol/Consul/Werther). As both of Innverness’ parents were campaigned as event horses, he was purpose bred for the sport.
His sire Innkeeper was a 1.25 million dollar Keenland yearling that as a two year old beat Kentucky Derby winner, Strike The Gold and won his only start as a three year old before being retired to stud duty. Innkeeper went on to compete in many disciplines including Show Hunters, jumpers and eventing. He was approved in multiple breed registries and had his race record been longer would have gone to stand at stud in Germany.


His dam, Parlez is by the Westfalian stallion Parabol (Paradox I/Waldschultz) and out of a mare by the Trakehner stallion, Consul and was the East Coast mare champion for her breed registry. Parabol's life accomplishments celebrate his versatility. He won his Stallion Performance Testing with an overall score of 140 points and almost equal marks for dressage and jumping. Parabol was titled Champion of Oldenburg as a 4-year old. In Germany, Parabol had a successful jumping career, including winning the prestigious competition for young riders Prize of the Best, jumping 5.5' courses, while being judged on his quiet manner and technique over fences. Not surprisingly, Parabol is listed for the AHS Jumper Breeding Program. Upon his importation to the US, Parabol switched to a dressage career. He earned the USDF Horse of the Year title at Third Level in his first year of dressage. He was short listed for the 1994 Pan American Team, long-listed by the USET for many years, and competed successfully up through Grand Prix until his retirement from sport in 1999.
Innverness received his lifetime breeding license in 2010 attending the Oldenburg/ISR short test. He received the score of 9.00 for Character, temperament, 8.00 for willingness to work, 8.50 for free jumping capability and 8.33 for style and technique.


Because of the significant percentage of thoroughbred on both the sire and to some extent the dam lines, Innverness lends himself to breeders looking to add blood to their breeding program. In addition he adds a long forearm, uphill build and beautiful expression and is a wonderful outcross stallion for heavier mares. He only started breeding in 2014 and his one foal of 2015 is already a licensed stallion. As purpose bred event horses are becoming of interest to American breeders and riders, Innverness is finding popularity in that area and is readily able to strengthen the breeding combination in the direction of speed, scope and bravery.


Orange Crush LJS's dam Saretta is by Olympic Ferro, the Dutch sensation at Aachen, competed at the 2000 Olympics and assisted his team in achieving a team silver medal, with an individual score of 74.92%. As a three-year-old he was champion of his performance test at Ermelo, where he achieved the outstanding results of 6.5--step, 8.5--trot and 8.5 gallop. His sire Ulft, is a son of the great Le Mexico, who is listed 10th on the jumping index with 142 points. In addition to their dressage excellence, Olympic Ferro's offspring also make good jumpers. Olympic Ferro is #1 on the BN World Stallion Rankings for dressage and is the top stallion and pride of the Netherlands, affectionately known as the "Black Pearl." In 2002 Olympic Ferro once again had the highest scores on the Dutch Olympic team.
Saretta's dam sire is Saluut who is a graded, 100 day performance tested Holstein stallion and International Grand Prix jumper. Saluut received excellent marks in his Dutch performance test and was graded at the highest level. He is also graded at the highest level with the SHB(GB), BWBS and AES. It is widely acknowledged that Saluut would also have been equally successful as a dressage horse. No other stallion world wide had offspring selected for both dressage and showjumping at the Atlanta Olympics!
Saluut is a proven sire of world class offspring in both showjumping and dressage. At the last count , World wide he has produced over 300 successful showjumpers, 294 dressage horses, 353 graded mares and 16 graded stallions.
Saluut is the only stallion in the UK to be listed in the International Breeding News publication as one of the top 200 dressage and showjumping sires world wide.
This young beauty should excel in either eventing, dressage, and or jumpers, she has the conformation, intelligence, and temperament to take her partner up the levels of sport with ease. Please contact ljshorses@gmail.com or FB message me for more information on this lovely lady.
