Approved for: Hollstein
LFG with contract
A big-framed young stallion, energetic and expressive and very impressive to behold. This Clarimo son steeped in athleticism boasts a convincing, typical Holsteiner course of movement, rhythmic and very ground-covering at trot and canter. Jumping is his forte. Due to his good control, technique, and ability combined with excellent reactions he is a natural and very promising jumper and should have a bright future ahead.
Crunch’s sire Clarimo excelled as a serial winner of young jumper classes at L and M level during his first showing season with Janne Friederike Meyer. He became 6-year-old show jumping state champion and qualified for the Bundeschampionat. At seven years old, he already performed convincingly to S level and was placed as well. He has been at Rolf-Göran Bengtsson’s yard since 2013 and has already achieved results at international Grand Prix and nations cup level.
Crunch’s dam Shamrock I – a big-framed Canturo daughter – particularly stands out for her excellent canter. His 2nd dam Herzdame II also produced the international show jumper Lakey by Lasino, a starter for Canada under Christina Mailin, and the successful S level jumper Ragnarök 2 by Lavaletto.
Line 776 has produced among others the licensed stallions Landos, Acorado, Lordanos and Ramiro and many excellent show jumpers like for example Leandra (Otto Becker), Cornwall W (Andreas Ripke) and Livello (Cameron Hanley), but also the highly successful dressage horse My Lord (Nadine Capellmann).
Crunch proved a very impressive jumper already in the 30-day ability assessment in 2011, where he scored 9.25 for jumping ability, 8.25 at the canter and was given a 8.13 for character. Due to injury he could not complete 70-day performance testing. Under his rider Thomas Konle, Crunch is emerging as an exceptional talented jumper which, at 4-year-old, already won young jumper classes at A level scoring top marks.
In 2013, he won numerous young jumper classes to M level. Among other achievements, he placed 3rd in the Elmshorn Schleswig-Holstein 5-year-old jumper championships and qualifi ed for the Warendorf Bundeschampionat.
His first foal crops have left a good impression and were rated at 116 (movement) and 107 (type/conformation) index points.
