Things are going great for Conthalou! On the sport scene: with a series of victories and placings in competitions for young show jumping horses with Ebba Johansson/SWE, including a qualification for the German Championships with a score of 8.9. Just like in breeding: from the first crops of foals, the Oldenburg and DSP auction top prices Connery (33,000 euros) and Con Cormint stand out. For his remarkable offspring, Conthalou was named the main premium winner at the Oldenburg Stallion Days.
After his acclaimed victory at the licensing of the Oldenburg Show Jumping Breeding Association (OS), Conthalou completed his 50-day test in Adelheidsdorf with expected highlights for his jumping manner (9.0), scope (9.0), willingness to perform (9.5), rideability (9.0), temperament (9.25) and overall impression (9.0). With a total score of 8.86, he was only narrowly beaten in the strong field of 35 candidates and finished third of his stallion performance test.
His sire Conthargos, who also stands at our stud, has produced numerous top horses, including the 1.60m show jumping horses Pia Contra/Nicolas Pizarro/MEX, Cocolina/Natalie Dean/USA, Carlotta/Johnny Pals/NED, Easy Girl/ Santiago Lambre/BRA and Vanessa Hood/USA, Conchacco/Patrick Stühlmeyer/GER, Connecticut/Matthew Sampson/GBR and Cosa Nostra/Jeroen Dubbeldam/NED, to only name a few. Almost 20 of his sons have been licensed, led by Continental Blue/Philip Rüping and Conthinder/Andrzej Oplatek/POL, who are both successful in show jumping competitions up to 1.60m.
In 2022, his dam Belinda was placed internationally in 1.45m show jumping competitions, first with Tim Gredley/GBR and then with Joseph Clayton/GBR.
His grand-dam Chaccos-Lüd is the half sister of an OS Premium Stallion by Los Angeles and the full sister of the two premium stallions Chacco’s Son I and II (both by Chacco-Blue). Chacco's Son I was part of the winning German Nations Cup teams at the CHIO in Aachen in 2018 and 2019 with Maurice Tebbel, was part of the fifth-placed European Championships team in Gothenburg/SWE and was highly placed in the Grand Prix of Rome/ITA, Hamburg/GER and La Baule/FRA. Chacco’s Son II was the Oldenburg main premium winner in 2015, was placed in the final of the German Championships and has since been placed in international competitions. Chacco's-Lüd produced Corydon van T&L (by Cornado NRW)/Frederic Vernaet/BEL, OS Reserve Champion and successful in 1.40m show jumping competitions, and the stallion For Chacco TN (by For Pleasure), who was placed in the international Youngster Tour.
Our performance stallions Balou du Rouet and Chacco-Blue appear in the previous generations and secure Conthalou’s pedigree in the best way.
Balou du Rouet, himself successful in advanced level show jumping competitions, sired Baloutinue/Laura Kraut/USA, Olympic team silver medallist, Bianca/Steve Guerdat/SUI, bronze medallist at the World and European Championships and eighth in the World Cup, Saura de Fondcombe/Nadja Peter Steiner/SUI, team third at the European Championships, as well as Corouet/Sarah Bullimore/GBR, individual bronze medallist at the European Eventing Championships. He is not only by far the most successful son of his famous sire, the Olympic champion and three-time World Cup winner Baloubet du Rouet, but also appears once again among the top 20 of the world's best show jumping and eventing sires according to the WBFSH ranking.
Chacco-Blue was third in the Grand Prix in Aachen, won the Grand Prix in Neumünster and has led the WBFSH ranking since 2017. From a breeding perspective, the elite stallion produced Explosion W/Ben Maher/GBR, Olympic Champion, individual silver and team bronze medallist at the European Championships and Global Champions Tour winner, Chanyon/Daisuke Fukushima/JPN, placed sixth at the Olympics, Chaqui Z/Shane Sweetnam/IRL, European Team Champion, and Chacon/Eoin McMahon/IRL, placed second in the Nations Cup final, amongst others. Chacco-Blue produced the most offspring at almost all championships, for example eight at the 2018 World Equestrian Games in Tryon/USA. Almost 60 of his sons have been licensed.
The licensed stallions Power Light/Alois Pollmann-Schweckhorst, Cessna, Durex and Amantino as well as the sport horses Whoopy/Jan Sprehe/GER, Mya Mercedes/Stefan Engbers/GER, Let’s Fly/Erik Kunze/GER and Baldobes/Roberto Prevital/ITA descend from this line.
