London Lane’s Special Edition, was born on 13 January 2013. He is a tall, elegant colt who has loads of presence and is very photogenic with attractive markings. Special Edition stands on correct limbs and like his sire and dam, has wonderful floating movement. With his superior movement and being bred in the blue to jump, he will be ideal for all disciplines especially jumping or dressage. He seems to have all the attributes at an early age, to be a potential stallion prospect.
