Lux Z x Libero I x Caletto I x Marlon xx
Tornesch shows a very interesting pedigree combining the best European showjumpers and sires with a lot of blood (we found back the thoroughbreds Rantzau 3 times, Ladykiller 2 times, Marlon, Cottage Son).

Very sound, he combines at the same time strength and suppleness which allow him to compete at the highest international level, with the beauty of an arabian throughbred -rare among the actual sport horses- with a long neck, a nice tiny head and big clever eyes.

He crosses well with mares with enough size and gives to his offspring his blood, nice type, excellent easy mind with a great willingness, his suppleness, great canter and carefulness over the fences.
