About Colestus  

Seldom do we see such athletic ability coupled with breeding capacity so ideally balanced the way it is with Colestus. His father, Cornet Obolensky is a line founder in the breeding of modern jumping horses, and is currently the youngest stallion ranking third on the list of the worlds best jumping ancestors according to the World Breeding Federation for Sport Horses. The mother St.Pr.St. Spice Girl R had Caprice (by Captain Fire), a successful S level jumping horse, and Le Cascadeur d’Amour (by Cornet Obolensky) who was successful up to medium level jumping. On the mother’s side we see the top breeding stallions Stakkato, Pilot, and Durchlaucht in a direct line. Cloesely related to the licensed stallions Cornauer, Harry Potter and Castaire. First Colestus had collected more than 25 victories in show-jumping tests for youngsters, including the Westphalian Champion title and had placed eighth at the National Championships. Later the grey stallion placed under Ludger Beerbaum in the CSI5*-shows in Hongkong/HKG and Paris/FRA, in the World Cup shows in Verona/ITA, Madrid/ESP and Stuttgart as well as in the Global Champions Tour in Antwerpen/BEL, Hamburg and Shanghai/CHN. Nine sons of Colestus have been licensed, among them Colestros, who has placed seventh at National Championships. The OS-reserve winner mare Rilana belongs to the 18 state premium daughters. Chronoswiss has been the top prize horse with 32.000 Euros at the auction in south Germany. Charlott has placed ninth in the National Championships. Cocosnuss has taken second place at the Westphalian Free Jumping Championships.

About Chellano Z

Chellano Z has a fabulous pedigree. Sire Contender (Calypso II), with more than forty licensed sons, is amongst the most influential hallmark stallions within German sport horse breeding. His dam Fayence (Cor de la Bryère) is none other than a full sister of the world famous progenitor Corrado I with which Franke Sloothaak won many Grand Prix and World Cup competitions. Moreover Corrado I is, without a doubt, one of the best producers of international show jumping horses within European breeding. Grand Prix show jumpers such as Think Twice (Leopold van Asten), Corrada (Peter Charles), Clinton (Dirk Demeersman), Cosima II (Markus Fuchs) and Coriano Z (Judy- Ann Melchior) all descend from Corrado I.

Chellano Z made his debut, under Jos Lansink, in 2003 in international show jumping with placings in Neumünster, Valkenswaard and Rotterdam. Before that, Chellano Z had, at both six and seven years old, finished within the best ten at the World Championships for young horses in Lanaken.
