Discern LS

1996 Bay NZ Sport Horse stallion - 16.1 hh (165 cm)


DISCERN LS is a quiet and lovely type of stallion who seems to pull off the ‘pick of the litter’ title each year! His foals are very good although he has had limited opportunities at Longspring Stud as he has the same bloodlines as most of the mares!

At LONGSPRING, we have a number of young colts coming on that are being used at stud as well as an ever increasing range of frozen semen coming in from overseas. DISCERN therefore has been used for small books of mares and we will be keeping the best of his fillies for breeding because of the valuable SOUND REASON bloodlines.     

DISCERN competed in showjumping with Rupert Vallance as a six year old for several shows where he proved to be a perfect gentleman even after having covered mares.

DISTELFINK was NZs leading sire of showjumpers since results were first computerized and he remained leading showjumping sire for 14 years in a row until his death in March 2004.  DISTELFINK produced Horse of the Year Winners, Young Horse of the Year, Show Hunter of the Year and national champions in dressage and eventing. He was 3rd on the WBCSH/FEI sires list for event horses in 1997/98 season. His record of success has been unparalleled.

DISCERN LS is a good type of horse with excellent conformation, good nature, lovely head and jumps nicely.  Of particular strength in his bloodlines is the SOUND REASON which has been a good bloodline for eventers. He also goes back to SOVEREIGN EDITION a very good TB racing line and broodmare sire.
