Once again, Lordanos can look back on a great season with many first and other places including the Vice State Champion title with Janne Sosath. His many first places in advanced level tests confirm his exceptional standing as a sire of uncomplicated, top sport horses that are easy to ride: his licensed son Lex Lugar became Vice Bundeschampion; Laokoon won international tests in Oldenburg and became Weser-Ems Champion with Hendrik Sosath. Lou (Franke Sloothaak) and Lord (Jürgen Kurz) are both highly successful at international level. Loxley won a Bundeschampionat qualification with a score of 9.1.
All in all, 18 of his off-spring qualified for Warendorf which exceeded all expectations concerning his quality as a sire. More than 20 of his sons have been licensed - the 2004 OS Reserve Champion, Loredus, the 2005 Holstein premium stallion, Legolas, and the 2005 Oldenburg Jumper Champion, Lissabon, who presented a premium son at the 2006 North Rhine Westphalian approval. In 2004 Lumos was Bundeschampion in the class for six year olds and Lucca a celebrated championship star. Lohengrin was a top priced jumper at the 2005 auction in Verden, selling for 110,000 Euro. Lordanos also managed the remarkable feat of winning first places in advanced level tests with all three Sosaths that ride and Janne Sosath even cleared a two meter fence in a puissance with him. This Holstein started his career by winning a series of nearly 40 tests for young jumpers up to medium level, also winning several qualifications for the Bundeschampionat. Lordanos is inbred through the famous "Ramiro line" 776. What a guarantee for maximum performance!
A true talent over fences, easy to handle with unlimited scope, excellent bascule and leg technique. Sire Landos, one of the great Lord's younger sons, combined with Calypso I and Capitano in the damline represents a highly interesting cross. Damsire Ahorn Z is established as a top class jumper sire. In the third generation his pedigree contains line breeding to Calypso I who counts as the most versatile Holsteiner Stallion in the past years through his numerous world class progeny in both the dressage and jumper arena. Far back in the pedigree Lordanos is line bred for line founder Cottage Son xx. Both Sire Landos and dam Ashley represent the famous Holsteiner Stamm 776 that produced among others the sires Calvados I and II, Cortino I and II, Lord Incipit, Captain Incipit, Lauritz J, Rossini, Toledo and world class sire Ramiro who is present in Lordanos pedigree himself in the fourth generation.
Lordanos foals all put a spell on people by their consistent typiness and outstanding quality of the gaits.
1997 In 7 starts = 7 wins in young jumper classes at L-level.
1998 7 winnings in young jumper classes at M-level, 11 winnings at L-level, several winnings at Bundeschampionate qualifyings, Finalist at Bundeschampionate Warendorf.

Lordanos is meanwhile enjoying wins and high placements in advanced showjumping including in many Grand Prix’ in which he has had advanced international placements such as in Flyinge/Sweden under Jan Vleugels. In the years 2000, 2001 and 2002, he was just as successful under the 16 year old Janne Sosath and the 15 year old Hendrik Sosath in qualifications for the savings bank (Sparkassen) Fault and Style Jumping Championship at the Wenz-Euroclassics in Bremen. Janne succeeded in deciding the qualification for the Aegon Junior Cup of 2002 in her favour with Lordanos, an event that was carried out in the framework of the European Championship of Young Riders in Hagen. She moreover attained a marvellous second place in the finals in Düsseldorf.
Lordanos’ foals appeal by their uniform imprint of type and outstanding quality of movement and have surpassed all expectations. Lordanos has already presented champion foals at the foal championships in Bad Segeberg in Holstein and in Ganderkesee. His progeny have enriched the foal auctions inter alia, in Vechta, Verden and Landshut. His first progeny are beginning convincing careers in competition sport. A number of daughters have moreover been awarded the distinction of state premium mares at the Elite Mare Show in Rastede and in the Hannoverian breeding region. In 2001, Lordanos was represented respectively at the approvals in Holstein and Oldenburg, by two exciting sons, the latter of whom was convincing both in jumping as well as in terms of his movement. Lordanos’ tally of approved sons meanwhile amounts to four. He was the sire of the top selling horse at the Spring Elite auction in Hannover, 2005.
Lordanos' hereditary qualities have surpassed every expectation. He delivered the 2003 Holstein reserve champion mare “Perina”, and many of his sons were approved for various breeding areas, e.g. “Lissabon”, who was the best stallion at the 30 day test in Münster-Handorf, and likewise “Loredano” in Neumünster, as well as the premium stallion “Lord Weingard”, who became the best showjumper stallion in Vechta in 2003. At the 2004 approval in Kreuth, one of his sons became the best showjumper of the whole contestant group.
At the 2004 approval of the Showjumper Breeding Association Oldenburg International, a Lordanos son was reserve champion. The progeny from Lordanos' first foal age classes caused a furor in 2004. At the Federal Showjumper Championship in Warendorf, three of them reached the finals of the 5-year-olds, and his son “Lumos” became the unequivocal champion of the 6-year-olds.
Approved for Oldenburg, Hannover, Holstein, Bayern, Westfalen, Rheinland, Hessen, Baden-Würtemberg, Sachsen-Anhalt, Berlin-Brandenburg and Belgium.
