A son of Cornet Obolensky x Cassini I x Contender x Narew xx, bred by Thomas Koch, Haltern am See, and exhibited by Marc Idelmann from Wetschen, was the celebrated champion stallion of the Springpferdezuchtverband Oldenburg International (OS).
The grey stallion was discovered as a foal in Vechta, descending from the same dam line as the successful jumpers Ballerina (Caretino/Markus Merschformann) and Singu (Singulord Joter/Hans Thorben Rüder), both competing up to 1m60.
Oldenburg’s Breeding Director Bernhard Thoben provided a commentary about the jumping talent: “The champion stallion, a shining horse in a white coat, passed the free jumping test with great potential, a strong opening hindquarter, and a lot of ability, which is also reflected in his pedigree. He was bred through Cornet Obolensky x Cassini x Contender, and then the circle closes because the stallion was discovered here in Vechta at the foal auction and was presented here again for the licensing. Our Champion Stallion of 2021 was bred by Thomas Koch and exhibited by Marc Idelmann. Congratulations.”

Sire Indian Rock (2013: Apache) is competing successfully in big classes under the saddle of Dutch rider Emmelie Scholtens.

The Grand Prix horses Saphira Royal/Kristina Bröring-Sprehe and Sergio Leone/Jan Ebeling, USA, are also from this line... To read the complete article you need to be a subscriber
