Challenger Jumping

Challenger is as near to Contender as you can get - in pedigree and appearance. Line bred on his sire Calypso 2 and grandsire Ramiro.

 
Challenger                                                                        Contender

Sire Conti is by Contender (Calypso 2 x Ramiro X Ladykiller) Grandsire is Rabino
(Ramiro X Calypso 2 X Ladykiller).

In the 3rd Generation we have “Lord” (by Ladykiller) he was an international cross country champion, and sire of Olympic medal winners in jumping (Livius) and dressage (Larius). In the sire “Contis” pedigree we have the valuable Argentan blood (Argentinus, etc).

A good stallion must have a good damline! Challenger (as my other 2 stallions) is out of the valuable Holstein line 474a, which  has produced winning stallions worldwide! Calato, sire of European Champion 2003 “Coester”  in Holstein. “Royal Cavalier”, No 9 in the world jumping index 2007 and successful stallion in Ireland!


N-Aldato (Emil Hendrix) and “Montreal” in the Netherlands. “Challengers” granddame “Livree” is also granddame of the licensed Holstein stallion “Amadehus standing at “Haras de Hus” in France.

He stands at 1.69m, and looks like grandsire Contender. He has a very good walk, trot and canter, and in jumping unlimited scope, with a particularly strong bounce.

He has a good temperament and gives his good top line and neck to his big framed foals.

He has been licensed by the Namibian Warmblood Horse Society and got a 9.0 for jumping
ability and 8.0 for technique.
