GERMANY (Adriana van Tilburg) Over the past month in Germany, three 14-day tests have taken place. There had, in fact, been more scheduled, but the tests only take place if a minimum of 20 stallions are presented for each test. The tests that took place were in Schlieckau, Adelheidsdorf and Neustadt/Dosse, while one additional sport took place in Münster-Handorf.
At the 14 day test of Schlieckau 29 stallions were presented. They were mainly dressage-bred, but also a few jumping stallions, such as a son of the French-bred Carinjo (Cascavelle - Exquisite x Landgraf I, Stamm 703, bred by Klaus Hermann Hollm), who had no name at the time of the test. However, the French database shows that he is registered under the name Farinjo des Mec (Carinjo - Traviata Mail x Kannan, bred by Carin Leuhusen).
His mother, Traviata Mail (Kannan - Elvira Mail x Lau- danum xx) descends from the famous breeding of Bernard Le Courtois, and is a half-sister to Jaguar Mail (Hand in Glove xx) and Katchina Mail (Calvaro Z), who have both jumped at 1m60. Farinjo des Mec scored a 9.5 for his willingness to work and 8.5 for his free jumping, to finish the test with 8.3 for jumping.
The Oldenburg-bred Benefit (Belantis - Sam x Sir Tender, bred by Angelika Krause) had already become the champion stallion of the Oldenburg approvals in 2017 and received the highest endnote of 8.4. His walk was rewarded with a 9.0, while trot and canter both earned 8.5.
The best jumper in Schlieckau was, however, the Oldenburger Stakkato’s Golden (Stakkato Gold - Erica x Canturano I, bred by Dr. Philipp Genn), who received the highest note of 8.7 for jumping, and his dressage note of 7.63 was also not so bad. At the test he was approved by the Hanoverian Verband, and shortly after the test was presented to the Holsteiner Verband and was there approved per breeding request...
