Contendro I video

He is something very special – and he proves this time and time again: Contendro I. A premium stallion in 1999 in Holstein, Contendro I won his stallion performance test in Adelheidsdorf a year later. With a jumping index of 147.29 he left his competitors in the dust. In 2001 he placed up front at the Holstein Riding Horse Championships and was nominated for the Bundeschampionat.
Because of his heavy breeding load there was not much time for competitions in sport but wherever Contendro I did compete, he was highly successful.

Numerous foals from Contendro's first crops were awarded premiums and sold especially well in Hanover. Several were admitted to the foal auctions in Verden, selling for prices that were well above average.

His pedigree also leaves nothing to be desired: The sire, Contender, who also won his stallion performance test, is one of today's most outstanding Holstein Verband sire personalities. The dam, Bravo, produced the top sire, Caretano by Caretino. In 2003 Contendro II became her third licensed son. The granddam, Ofarim, had two licensed sons, Caballo and Conteur. Contendro I is highly inbred over the Anglo-Arabian stallion, Ramzes, a fact that has always played a significant role in line 104 a, Contendro's line. This line also produced the sires Capitano, Carloni, Carneval, Celano, Chicos Boy, Corland, Landego, Landetto, Laurin, Leuthen I and II, Lonely Boy as well as the top international horses Retina/Fritz Thiedemann, Athlet 90 and Corlanda, both ridden by Willi Melliger (SUI) and Athletico/Ludger Beerbaum. This line was uncompromisingly bred for jumping performance even before World War II.

Licensed for Oldenburg, Hanover, Westphalia and Holstein.
