Prior to moving to the UK Christian 25 stood at the Bockmann stud and was previously ridden by Soren Von Ronne jumping up to 1m55 in 3* competitions across Europe. Christian 25 is a modern show jumping stallion who passes on his long legs and scope in canter. Christian’s foals are known to inspire with charisma, modernity and powerful, elastic movements. In November 2014 a Christian son out of a Check In mare was licensed for OS-International.

As a young stallion he got 4×10’s in his licensing and in 2012 qualified with top scores for the final of the Bundeschampionate for six-year old show jumpers, after placing eighth in the class for five-year old show jumpers under Gilbert Böckmann in 2011. He also had high placings in Dortmund, Kiel, Neumünster and Chemnitz in 2014.

His sire, Cartani, is the result of breeding the two-time Olympic stallion Carthago Z to WC team gold winner, Taggi. Cartani himself a Holsteiner Premium Stallion, qualified twice with top scores for the Bundeschampionat and competed several times as a member of the Danish team under the saddle of Charlotte van Rönne. He competed in the 2013 European Championship in Herning/DEN, and placed in the Grand Prixs of Spangenberg and Neustadt/Dosse. Cartani presented several licensed sons in Oldenburg, Holstein and Belgium.

Cartani’s dam, Free Lilly (sport name: Who knows Lilly), participated in the 2004′ Olympic Games in Athens/GRE. When bred to Lordanos she produced the licensed stallion Lukanec who is also stationed at Böckmanns.

The granddam, Miss Playback, is dam of the licensed stallions Liberty Life (by Lord Liberty), Lord Pezi and Lord Pezi Two. Liberty Life was placed fifth at the 1996′ Bundeschampionate for six-year old show jumpers and, later, competed successfully under Gilbert Böckmann in Nations Cups, for which he was awarded the title VTV-Jumper Stallion. Lord Pezi (by Lacros), who was stationed in Hamstrup in those days, placed as well in advanced level show jumpings and is, among others, sire of Louis/Beat Mändli/SUI, who ranked tenth at the European Championship. His full brother Lord Pezi Two achieved successes up to advanced (S) level show jumping, too.
