Legend is a charming boy all around. He is stunning to look at, sweet and cuddly and he shows a very good character. His nerves seem to be excellent for such a young boy and he is easy to manage in the barn and under saddle. With nice gaits, he will be the perfect prospect for somebody looking for a special horse. He is very well started and on his way to dressage horse classes with the proper training. He could be the ideal amateur horse for a lady or a young rider with the potential for more. Dr. Ludwig Christman said the following about Lauries Crusador’s qualities and his stamp: "He improves the frame of the horse. He puts on the long legs that we like, and the big shoulders that we hope for. What is also very important is the rideability of his offspring. They are very good in their mind, very co-operative, also good for collection. They have good movement and they are really trainable so the movement gets better under saddle." In addition, Lauries Crusador xx was proclaimed Hanoverian Stallion of the Year 2006 at the 2006 Hanoverian Stallion Licensing in Verden , Germany . The nomination of the 15th "Hanoverian Stallion of the Year" was one of the highlights of this year’s Stallion Licensing. It was the first time that a thoroughbred stallion was honored with this award: These last few years, Celle State Stud Stallion Lauries Crusador xx has certainly had a considerable influence on the Hanoverian breed.

Legend’s dam sire Argentan, was one of the most important founding sires of the modern Hannoverian.
Argentan was Reserve Champion of his stallion licensing in 1969, and the following year, was 4th out of 15 candidates in the performance test.
In 1994 he was crowned Hannoverian Stallion of the Year as a result of his extraordinary success as a sire. Argentan was the sire of 805 competition horses who won a total of DM1,648,638. His broodmares in particular were highly regarded and included three Champion German Riding Horse mares at the DLG show: Aragonia (1978), Ascona (1980) and Arabella (1984). However he was also the sire of some top performers including Mario Deslauriers 1984 World Cup winner, Aramis. He was the sire of 19 stallion sons, including Airport, Al Capone and most famed of all, Argentinus. The late Werner Schockemöhle, a man regarded in his lifetime as a walking encyclopaedia of Warmblood breeding, had this to say about the great stallion: "For twenty years I have judged the foals in the areas to the north, near Varkstead, where Argentan stood. Then he was the most important stallion - for type - in Hannover . He made fantastic types, but he had the mistakes of Absatz/Abglanz. He was not so good in the shoulder, and often he was not good in the front legs, especially the fetlock and the pasterns. The fetlock was often not large enough, it was too light, and the pasterns were too short. Together that shortens the life of the front leg when it is used hard in the sport."

He is willing and learning very fast. Legend is very well mannered and a total gentleman searching the right new owner for a successful carrier in the show ring. He is suitable for all kinds of disciplines, including but not limited to dressage, hunters or jumpers. We expect him to do well in what ever he’ll do. He stands quiet for the farrier, loads and does everything you ask him to do. Don’t miss out at a super opportunity to buy a young quality horse at a truly exceptional price. Take a look at this sweet face and fall in love with him!
