Burbank, CA (February 20-23, 2014) Elizabeth Landers was beaming on her 2007 elegant black Hanoverian gelding, His Highness Crusador, at the Mid-Winter Dressage Fair in California. The pair garnered four blue ribbons during the show, winning second level test two twice and second level test three twice, with a high score of 70%. His Highness Crusador is sired by Leatherdale Farm's immortal stallion, His Highness and is out of the mare, Lynn. His Highness Crusador was bred by Peter Mahler.
His Highness Crusador's talent for dressage comes naturally. His sire, His Highness was the Hanoverian undisputed licensing champion of 2002. At the Danish licensing in 2005, he was proclaimed champion of the four-year-old dressage stallions. He was champion at his stallion performance test in Prussendorf in 2003, receiving a total score of 149.24. Look for Elizabeth Landers and her talented gelding in future California shows in 2014; a truly talented pair.
