Conthargos: the supplier of Grand Prix winners!
The descendants of Conthargos dominate the big stage.
In 2008 Conthargos won the Deister Championship in Dobrock as a four-year-old with a 9.5 and qualified effortlessly for the Bundeschampionat. Due to an injury he was unable to continue his own career, but his internationally successful children put him all the more in the scene.
Twelve sons have now been inspected, including the OS champion stallion Conthalou and Conthinder. In addition, many offspring are very successful in international show jumping, such as Concona, Conbelleza, Conbalou, Conthacco, Conblue, Jolanda, Coraline and Tailormade Chloe Star. Their successes launched Conthargos into the WBFSH ranking of the world's best show jumping sires.
The sporting results of his offspring have made Conthargos skyrocket in the WBFSH ranking where he is now in 31st place. And Conthargos has even more “irons in the fire”: Eight descendants won a ticket for the Bundeschampionat in 2020. Comtess became reserve champion at the Oldenburger Landeschampionat and a colt by Conthargos took the silver and bronze medals at the German foal championship. Conthargos: success guaranteed!
