HAMEL, Minnesota, Sept. 27, 2015-Funeral arrangements are not yet available for Lloyd Landkamer who died Friday and life partner Bill Solynties has requested that in lieu of flowers, donations in Lloyd's memory be made to the American Cancer Society.
Lloyd and Bill Solynties, partners for 32 years, married when it became legal in Minnesota.
Lloyd is also survived by two younger brothers and a sister who still live in Kansas.
A biography provided by Bill:
Lloyd was born in Lawrence, Kansas the son of Dale J. and Lorna Nolte Landkamer, both now deceased.
Lloyd received college degrees in Animal Husbandry, Computer Science and Economics and worked for a time for Sperry in Minneapolis in the computer science field, receiving frequent promotions, before he realized his true calling was with horses.
Lloyd and William (Bill) Solynties met 32 years ago, when Lloyd was 28 years of age, in Mankato, Minnesota where they established their company, Solland, Inc. Lloyd and William (Bill) Solynties met 32 years ago, when Lloyd was 28 years of age, in Mankato, Minnesota where they established their company, Solland, Inc.
Early in their partnership, Lloyd and Bill had the opportunity to purchase two stallions, Renaissance and Fascination from Bernie Traurig.
Lloyd selected top mares and produced very successful dressage horses. In recent years, he had a great eye for world-class stallions, and raising young horses remained one of his favorite interests.
Lloyd showed in dressage for several years, earning national awards and his U.S. Dressage Federation bronze Medal before he became primarily interested in show management. He purchased failing shows and worked hard to make them succeed. He started managing dressage competitions at Lamplight Equestrian Center in Wayne, Illinois more than 20 years ago, often driving all night to and from the show to minimize expenses. He was meticulous from the beginning about following USEF rules and serving the needs of his competitors.
Through the years, his role in the sport expanded. He served as a manager, secretary, technical delegate, FEI steward, mentor and educator to many in the sport. While he is best known as manager of the dressage and para-equestrian competitions at the World Equestrian Games in 2010, NAJYRC, USEF Festival of Champions, USEF Young Horse Championships, and dressage competitions in Wellington, Florida-most recently the Global Dressage Festival, Lloyd has provided management and secretarial services to scores of other competitions through the years. With a particular interest in youth programs, he underwrote the cost of regional youth competitions and provided anonymous donations to youth programs for years.
In addition, Lloyd was the consummate volunteer. He served on the USDF Executive Board, USEF Dressage Committees, USEF Para Technical Committee and numerous other USEF and USDF committees. He was named USDF Volunteer of the Year in 2002. As a USEF and FEI official, he has served as a USEF Steward, USEF Technical Delegate and FEI Chief Dressage Steward. He was most recently named to the stewarding team for the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.
According to Bill, Lloyd was a total workaholic.
Kristi added, "Lloyd took me under his wing many years ago early in my judging career. He was there for me in good times, bad times and tragic times. My friend, my teacher, my mentor, my brother and now my guardian angel-I will miss him beyond words!"
In addition to horses and shows, Lloyd was an avid reader. He was an accomplished cook and gardener, often sharing favorite recipes and flower bulbs with his friends. He also loved dogs, not just his own but every dog at his shows. He kept his show office well-supplied with dog treats and the dogs and their owners loved him.
Lloyd considered his friends and colleagues in dressage as his "family. He valued loyalty and dependability and would support his friends financially and emotionally when they were in need. He provided for education, show supplies, and sometimes living expenses if a friend was in need. He created awards and funding, often anonymously, to honor his friends and those in need. He was a leader in the sport and an inspiration to us all.
Longtime colleague and friend Lisa Gorretta reminisced, "Lloyd was always concerned about improving the quality of dressage in the U.S.
