Cristallo I

Measuring the success of stallions by their offspring successes: In Ranshofen/AUT Cassiopeia SC under Gunther Döhler won a 1.40 m jumping competition. The Cristallo – Arpeggio daughter bred by Petra Schnäbler already won a 1.40 m jumping competition in Goch the weekend before. In Opglabeek/BEL Obolensky’s Dollar Girl under Georgia Wells won a 2-phase test for 5- and 6-year-old show jumpers. 2 days before, the Cristallo I – Billy Mexico daughter bred by Weston Lawns Stud already won in a time jumping competition especially for this age group. In Valkenswaart/NED, Charmeur placed third with Frederica Fernandes in a 1.35 m time trial. The Cristallo I – Oldenburg offspring is bred by Jos Bruggink.

Champions League already won a week ago in Goch in a 1.45 m jumping competition. Cristallo I – Lancer III is not an unknown quantity, as he attracted a lot of attention when he was a foal. Mother La Belle adopted little Cashmere in the year of his birth, who is to take over his father’s legacy as heir to the throne of our stallion station. Under Kevin Thornton, Champions League, bred by Gut Neuenhof, has already celebrated numerous successes in the advanced level. Sebastian Kapel from Great Britain also relies on Cristallo I offspring. One of his youngsters, Vanda Bugatti by Cristallo I – Silverstone, won a show jumping test for 5-year-olds in Valkenswaart/NED.

The offspring of our show jumping flagship do not only fill us with pride. We are in the same boat with the breeders, riders and owners and therefore congratulate all involved on these successes and say thank you.
