“WHERE PREMIUMS AND PEDIGREE PREVAILS”

Premium stallion at the Holsteiner Korung (Approval), Cristo then proceeded to achieve several Studbook registrations. Cristo’s total score at the Stallion Testing (HLP) of 140.18 points was noteworthy, this included Jump 137.70 and Dressage 120.78. He further won 5 klasse L events under Lars Bak Anderson.

Cristo is a bay, blood limbed horse with well proportioned conformation. His majestically defined head never ceases to impress. Chic, Scope, Versatility and Modernity are some of Cristo’s dominant traits.


PEDIGREE

Cristo’s pedigree impresses generation upon generation.

He combines two of the great and modern Holstein Performance sires. Contender sired Contendro 1, WBFSH No. 1 Event Sire 2018, 3 years running at the top now and Montender (Olympic Team Show-jumping Gold Medallist).

Carthago sired Mylord Carthago (Penelope Leprovost), Winner of the Global Champions Tour, (G.C.T.) Grand Prix, Vienna, 1.60m and Old Chap Tame, Runner-up G.C.T., Shanghai (1.60m).

Cristo’s damline confers him with famous relatives, including the outstanding sire Landadel and the renowned Calvaro, Silver Medallist at the Atlanta Olympics.


There is no gamble in breeding to Cristo!

His pedigree indicates what he could breed, his progeny confirms what he does breed now.

Cristo has already emphatically displayed his strength as a dual-purpose sire of superior class, in both eventing and show-jumping in particular.
