Livello has sired a number of very good Irish performers, most notably the 1.60m Nations Cup performer Lapuccino ridden by Ireland’s Michael Duffy, recently 6th CSIO 5* World Cup London and 3rd in the 5* GCT GP in Hamburg: he also sired 1.60m jumper BEC Lorenzo, ridden by Catherine Tyree, USA. Another well-known ISH by Livello is the Cian O’Connor/Ennisnag-bred ESI Toulouse, produced to 1.60m level by Cameron Hanley. On the eventing front, the Livello-sired Ballinteskin Coopers competed successfully at CCI4* ridden by Daisy Berkeley and Cooley Tanglewood competed at CCI3* ridden by Rose Nesbitt. Approved son Lewine is standing with the Holsteiner Verband and is one of a number of approved stallions by Livello.

“It is a most remarkable fact that 50 % of his sport horse offspring boast showjumping results at S level [140m-1.50m]”
“When I rode Livello it felt like he had everything you want in a horse, he was careful, scopey very intelligent and had great rideability and now that I ride Toulouse it feels like he has passed on all these qualities to his offspring.”
Cameron Hanley, former rider of Livello
“I love Lapuccino’s sire Livello. He passes his own fantastic traits to his offspring: Intelligence, blood, balance, scope and carefulness and I would recommend him to any breeder for their mare.”
Michael Duffy, current rider of Lappuccino
“Livello was successful to the highest level in International Showjumping. He was ridden by seasoned professionals and young inexperienced riders to Championship success. This is demonstrating his talent, rideability, scope and carefulness. A great mover at all paces with blood and intelligence.”
“I really feel Livello is a serious dual purpose sire. We have had many through our hands at Cooley Farm, while they are still young in their careers, we have sold them to top riders and I am sure you will see them at the very highest level of eventing in the near future. For my business, I am always interested in purchasing Livello stock from foals upwards.”
Richard Sheane, Cooley farm
