Stallion presentations at Equitana 2013
11 03 2013
Breeders are in for a treat on Sunday 17th March, when the stallion presentations take place at the Equitana in Essen, Germany. The best German stallions will be presented in a wonderful, splendid show which presents the different generations of warmblood and pony breeding.
One of the participants is Ludger Beerbaum. The show jumping rider runs a stallion station where he also has exquisite dressage stallions. For example the eight year old Estobar NRW (by Ehrentusch), who won the stallion selection in 2006 in North Rhine-Westphalia and was the winner of the dressage section of the 2009 stallion station test. Since this day, he has won many dressage competitions on M-level and now successfully competes at subtop level. This charismatic stallion will be presented under saddle by Hubertus Schmidt.
The stallion Cellestial (s.Cantus), who became jumping stallion of the year in Oldenburg six years ago, will be there too. By now, he has 18 approved sons out of which four won an award. Cellestial is known for his fertility. He is an all-round stallion who also inherits an above average dressage potential.
Another important C-line sire is Colestus (s. Cornet Obolensky). This Westphalian stallion showed his superior jumping technique during the free jumping. Cornet Obolensky’s offspring is highly successful in international competitions. The stallion Stakkato, Colestus’ dam sire, is just below Cornet Obolensky in the German stallion ranking. Considering his pedigree the expectations for Colestus are very high. He stands at stud at the Massener Heide Equestrian Sports Center. This stallion station will also present Cachassini (s. Cachas) at the Equitana. This dark bay Holstein beauty scored with no less than 9.6 for his jumping ability during the performance test, which made him the best of his year.
At this year’s Equitana Jens Meyer’s stallion station will celebrate its 20th jubilee with the presentation of Cashman (s. Contender). This Hanoverian has got a high jumping index, which makes him one of the top ten Hanoverian jumping stallions. This stud will also present six dressage stallions.
