About Contendro I

The career of the extraordinary sire Contendro I in a few key words: 1999 Holstein premium stallion, winner of the 2000 Adelheidsdorf stallion performance test, placed in the 2001 Holstein Riding Horse Championships, and was nominated for the Bundeschampionate. His heavy breeding schedule only allowed for sporadic appearances at shows but when he competed, he always took home a ribbon. 

His sire, Contender, is one of the world's leading jumper-makers. The life-time earnings of Contender offspring such as the double European Champion, Montender ridden by Marco Kutscher, the two-time Riders Tour winner, Checkmate, and the three-time Derby winner, Collin ridden by Toni Hassmann, were up to 3.9 million Euro by 2006.
