Couleur Rubin, one of the best advertisements for Seifert performance breeding and one of four licensed sons out of St.Pr./El.St. Grannuschka that are all highly successful in sport, won the Championships of Basel/SUI last season and placed second in the Masters League Final of Frankfurt, third in the Grand Prix of Neumünster as well as fifth in the Show Jumping World Cup of Leipzig under his Olympic Game multi-champion rider, Ludger Beerbaum.
This Cordamé-Grannus son had already revealed his outstanding talent in 1998 when he was licensed in Oldenburg and received the dream score of 10.0 in free jumping, taking the I-i premium. In 2001 Couleur Rubin took the Vice Bundeschampion title in the class for five-year old show jumpers and placed again in the Final a year later in the class for six-year olds. In 2002 he received the VTV Jumper Stallion of the Year award.
Couleur Rubin is also the sire of Castle Forbes Cosma who is successful in Grand Prix under his Irish rider, Jessica Kürten. Eight of his sons have been licensed, including Couletto, also bred by Harli Seifert, who wins international competitions under Simon Delestre/FRA, and Copasetic ridden by Thomas Kleis.
