Under Judy-Ann Melchior, LEVISTAN’s sire LEVISTO Z developed into a top-class performer in the international showjumping sport. He showed his great quality in the World Cup-final and the European Championships. As important is that LEVISTO Z carries the blood of the excellent Holsteiner lineage 4965. LEVISTO’S dam HIRTIN (s. CAROLUS) caused sensation in the international showjumping sport, going by the name of CHICA BAY. The international showjumping stallions CLINTON I (Thomas Voss) and CLINTON II (Alois Pollmann-Schweckhorst) are full brothers of LEVISTO’S dam. The first offspring of LEVISTO Z are following their sire in the international sport like LADY LVISTO, LORD LEVISTO and LYONELL.
LEVISTAN is bred out of a Hanoverian daughter of the great sire ARGENTAN I, who is undeniably the best son of the influential ABSATZ. Like his famous son ARGENTINUS, also ARGENTAN I produced showjumping horses of the highest level, such as world cup winner ARAMIS ridden by Mario Deslauriers. Grand dam WALDREBE is a product from the successful breeding area around Danneberg, which for years on end has been the nursing pond of Hanoverian showjumping horses. WALDREBE carries successively the blood of the foundation sires WIENERWALD, ARCHIMEDES, ALLJEDER and INGRABAN. Great-grand dam ATLANTICA (ARCHIMEDES) stands at the basis of the successful lineage 843. Her offspring include the reputable stallions CHASSEUR I and II (s. CALYPSO II) and WOLKENTANZ I and II (s. WELTMEYER) as well as the international showjumping horses DORIAN RED (s. DROSSELKLANG II) ridden by Thomas Weinberg, ROSEANNE (s. REBEL I Z) ridden bu Amy Millar and WIENER DOMSPATZ (s. WIENERWALD) ridden by Ludger Beerbaum.
