London Lane’s Simply Special was born on Halloween (31 October 2010) from our own breeding stock. He is a dark bay/white tobiano colt. He has very correct conformation, is a handsome fellow and has an inquisitive nature. He has excellent movement and an athletic frame. He should excel in dressage or jumping as his parents have lots of talent in both of these areas.

Pedigree and Breeding Lines

Simply Special’s sire is our imported Oldenburg tobiano stallion, Special Effects. For more information on Special Effects and his breeding, pedigree and achievements, please visit his page under the Stallion tab. Special is jumping in the 1.20ms at present and has many in-hand showing titles from the Horse of the Year shows to his name.

Simply Special’s dam, Saratoga Tiramasu, a tobiano South African Warmblood mare is out of the imported KWPN stallion Waldemar G, who is by Ringo and has Samber on both sides of his pedigree. Samber was known as “The King of the Coloured Horses” and was approved and entered into the KWPN Main Studbook. He achieved a rare 10 at his Stallion Approval for his character. Also found in Waldermar’s line is Purioso and Furioso II, who is considered one of the main founders of the modern European Sport horse. Tiramasu’s dam, Naughty Casey xx is by Our Casey’s Boy xx out of a Contraband/Dramatic II mare line. Naughty Casey achieved a 79% at her South African Warmblood inspection.
