Pedigree

Gladheart Linhawk was the first foal registered with the Gladheart prefix, and although rather diminutive (13.3h), “LC” (or "Little Man" as his Oregon dressage friends have dubbed him) is proof you don't need a big horse for dressage.

Gladheart Linhawk and Kimberlee Barker

Initially trained and shown by his amateur owner to First Level, LC has successfully competed through Intermediate I with USDF Silver Medalist Kimberlee Barker in USDF recognized Open competitions. He has been an Adequan/USDF All-Breeds Award winner at every level from First through Prix St Georges, and Morgan Dressage Association Awards of Excellence recipient at all levels from First to FEI, often capturing Champion or Reserve titles.

 

Linhawk and Kim have been a popular pair for dressage demonstrations: the only Morgan in the Oregon Dressage Society's Introduction to the 2011 USEF Tests Seminar, Second Level horse and rider pair for the 2011 USDF "L-Judges" series with Axel Steiner, and a demonstration horse for the Dressage Exhibition at the 2009 and 2012 Northwest Equine Expositions, as well as being a participant in the 2012 USDF Region 6 Adult Clinic with Lilo Fore. They have been featured in The Morgan Horse, Chronicle of the Horse and Flying Changes magazines.

In 2015, Linhawk underwent colic surgery at the Oregon State University Veterinary Teaching Hospital, and began a long road of recovery and reabilitation. We are so incredibily grateful to the faculty and staff at Oregon State for their skill and care of LC, and it almost goes without saying that we are greatly indebted to Kim for her skill and dedication in rehabilitating LC. We are looking forward to his first season back in the competition in 2017.

LC is both a benchmark for us in what type of athletic talent we strive for in our program, as well as an outstanding example of what a talented Morgan can do.
