According to successful breeders, you have to combine the interesting in order to attain the exceptional. Connor is a big-framed stallion with a particularly powerful back, long legs and correct feet. He does a scopey, careful, good quality jump but is still rather easily impressed by his surroundings, similar to his sire at a young age. At 6 and 7 years, Connor chalked up numerous wins in young jumper and show jumper classes to S level and also won the first ever 7-year-old jumper Championship at Elmshorn in 2013. He has improved steadily since and has achieved numerous valuable placings, also in classes at S** level.
His sire Casall is a performance sire of high international standing. For further information about Casall please see page 25. Connor’s dam is a full sister to Corrado I which was successfully shown at international level by Bo Kristoffersen and Franke Sloothaak from 1991 to 1997, and chalked up numerous Grand Prix wins, for example at Leuwaarden, Dortmund, Aarhus, Neumünster, and Kiel. Stem 6879 is rated a very high achieving mare family in the Holsteiner breeding programme. Already in the 1950s, this stem attracted attention for the successful mares Baden (Hans Evers) and Original Holsatia (Fritz Thiedemann), later for Landlord (Breido Graf zu Rantzau, Ludger Beerbaum), and Lausbub (Achaz von Buchwaldt). Connor’s first crops have already yielded several state premium mares and four licensed Holsteiner sons, two of them licensed in 2013, one the reserve champion stallion Coruscant, the other Connect, a frequently used stallion stationed in the Netherlands.
