Harley VDL x Contender x Acorado I
The at international level with Jessica Kürten extremely successful Harley VDL has clearly left its mark on Tenders S.
In the pedigree of Harley VDL we find three very popular international showjumpers in a row: Heartbreaker, Carthago and Caletto I. Combined with the coveted Holsteiner top stallion Contender, this makes Tender S a showjumping promise for the future.

Contender, one of the best sons of Cor de la Bryère, lived almost to a respectable age of 30 years and has passed on his wonderful conformation, world-class jumping ability and rideability to a large number of offspring and 127 approved sons, such as Contendro and Canabis Z At the highest level of sport you will find Marco Kutcher's Olympic bronze medalist and European champion Montender, Meredith Michaels-Beerbaum's Checkmate and Ludger Beerbaum's amazing mare Chiara, among others.
