CONTHARGOS is no longer alive

The showjumping stallion Conthargos had to be put to sleep at the age of 19 due to a sudden onset of laminitis, which unfortunately could not be treated by the veterinarians who were called in immediately.

With his already Olympic offspring, the Converter son, who was placed at the breeding station of his breeder Paul Schockemöhle in Mühlen all his life, was able to shine. Numerous offspring have been successful in show jumping worldwide, such as Conchento PS, who placed in the Grand Prix of St. Tropez/FRA, London/GBR, Geneva/SUI, Valence/FRA and Vilamoura/POR under Gregory Wathelet/BEL and Luciana Diniz/POR, Concona, who placed sixth in the Grand Prix of Hamburg under Ben Maher/GBR, and Cosa Nostra, who took part in the Olympic Games with Alberto Michan/ISR. But the offspring of Conthargo are not only among the best in the show jumping arena, but also in eventing. Jadore Moi and Sophie Leube won the CCIO4* event in Boekelo/NED and placed sixth at the DM in Lumühlen.

Conthargos himself won the Deister Championships at Dobrock in 2008 as a four-year-old with a score of 9.5 and easily qualified for the Bundeschampionat in 2009. Due to injury, he was unable to continue his own career. This is done in his place by his offspring. More than 20 of his sons have been licensed, including the OS Champion Stallion and main premium winner Conthalou, who is also shown by Paul Schockemöhle, and his pit neighbor in Mühlen, Continental Blue, who placed in the front at Grand Prix level. Currently in Westphalia, a son of Conthargo was show jumping champion and another 2nd reserve champion.  

The OS stallion Conthargos is bred in a direct line through Converter, Carthago, Latus I and Sandro. His dam Cajandra Z produced a number of international show jumpers, including Chacjandra (by Chacco-Blue) and Afrika (by Converter I)/among others Werner Muff/SUI, who were successful in 1.60 meter jumping competitions.
