The nine-year-old Hanoverian stallion Hunters Scendro (Scendix - Coletha x Contendro I) has been purchased by Joris de Brabander’s Stal de Muze and Juliette Megret (Ibreed Agency). The delighted new owners have been waiting several months as it was a difficult separation for Hunters Studfarm to part with one of their best recruits. Scendro is one of the most promising stallions of his generation. Already a scene stealer from the age of three, Scendro became five-year-old Belgian champion, and progressed to the finals of the WBCYH in Lanaken in this same age group. From a long line of jumpers, Scendro’s sire, Scendix (bredby Gudrun Wenzel), jumped at 1m60 with Canadian international Eric Lamaze. His dam, Coletha, juped at 1m30, while grandmother Sintha (Singula Joter I) jumped at 1m40 – both under the saddle of Holger Kubelke. Scendro, himself, started his career with Brecht Bille (BEL), but has most recently been competing under the saddle of Constant van Paesschen. According to Joris de Brabander: “I got the opportunity to buy him. He was a very outstanding jumping horse at the age of five. I was almost a little bit jealous that I didn’t own him, he showed so many fantastic rounds. He jumped with fantastic manners. He jumped light-footed, careful and showed a good mentality. He fits well with the stallions I already have, and have had in the past. His oldest offspring are four and I have seen some great three year olds – something that also counted towards my purchasing him.” Scendro is approved, to date, by Hanoverian, BWP and Zangersheide.
