CONNOR x CONTENDER x LORD HOLSTEIN DE 421000160711, 1.70m, bay, 2011 Breeder: Christiane Mohr, Wöhrden
Connect was one of the most appealing stallions of the Holstein approvals 2013. With his elegant exterior marked by TB, he was one of the crowd’s favorites. This son of Connor was not only the best jumper of his year but showed thereby also very appealing movements. In particular, the balance and strength of the gallop is remarkable.
Sire Connor is like the well-known Chellano Z bred from the direct dam line of Corrado I. He is a son of the acclaimed Casall out of a regional priced mare by the legendary Cor de la Bryère, full sister to Corrado I. In the pedigree of Connect, we successively find the Holsteiner stallions Contender and Lord. Out of this famous dam line (stamm 2067) come many 1.60m successful international jumpers.
After his impressive performance at the Holsteiner stallion approvals, Connect has completed his performance test in Germany and Holland. Connect, a modern bloodtype stallion stood out in both of these ability tests, receiving high scores for his jumping and movement skills.
His first offspring have left an unprecedented mark. In addition to many successes at mare performance tests, Connect also sired Chatham (sm. Indoctro) the stallion champion at the NRPS approvals and Lamaze HW (sm. Catoki) the reserve champion of the VSN trophy for 4 years old jumpers. In addition two of his sons got approved by the KWPN studbook, including the reserve champion Lingo van de Watermolen (sm. Carambole).
Faye Sutton will not soon forget the international U25 competition in
Fontainebleau, because the British rider won prizes every day with the
eight-year-old Ustinov daughter Jolita L (ds.Nabab de Rêve, breeder A.
