At the age of 24 years Lanthan (Lombar x Sudan xx) passed away because of his age. For a very long time Hanoverian breeders prefered the elegant Lanthan, who was bred by H. Sommerfeld, Neuhaus/Oste, as a producer of excellent dressage horses.
But he also was an important sire of jumping horses. Over his breeding career Lanthan had produced many successful performance horses as well as more than 14 licensed sons. His offspring are mostly beautiful horses with elastic movements and a great rideability. In 1999 Lanthan was the stallion with the highest breeding value in his age-group.
