Only days after revealing his upcoming star horse Sundance at the 2011 USDF Convention, Steffen Peters has been blessed with another new horse that can follow in Ravel's footsteps. Sponsor Akiko Yamazaki acquired the 9-year old Westfalian gelding Legolas (by Laomedon x Florestan II x Profi) at Hof Kasselmann.
The sale of Legolas has been in the pipeline since September but the purchase was finalised this week. Steffen Peters tried out the horse for the first time right before the Pan American Games and was only able to return with sponsor Yamazaki after the Games. Born in 2002 Legolas is bred by Johannes Kissing and was acquired by Ullrich Kasselmann and Paul Schockemohle of Performance Sales International as a youngster.
