Luidam's showjumping career began in a very good manner with a 7th place at the 5YO World Championships in Lanaken and then at 6 YO when he won the Foxhunter Finals in Wembley in 1999 with John Popeley.
In 2002 he was purchased by Sue Davis (his present owner) where he went on to win over £100,000 Sterling, in his first year as a nine year old, jumping with Billy Twomey. With such International success he was selected for the Athens Olympic Team in 2004. He jumped an impressive double clear in the Aga Khan's Nations Cup in the Dublin Horse Show to win for Ireland in 2004. Pulling a shoe while jumping the combination in the Dublin Grand Prix caused a crack in his hoof wall which unfortunately left him out of that Olympic trip.
With Billy Twomey, Luidam made one of the most successful couple in Europe, representing Ireland many times.

Luidam shows an easy temperament, a nice shape with a long neck and strong legs. He is athletic, moves well and has proved his excellent potential at international level. It is also an interesting stallion through his great bloodline, and especially his sire Guidam but also the several thoroughbreds that we find back in his pedigree, which becomes rare nowadays.
Luidam brings to his offspring his blood, his scope and his good mind. We recommend him mares with enough size.
