Christian is a modern showjumping stallion with effortless scope, huge ability and a willingness to give 110 per cent. Prior to arriving in the UK he stood at the Bockmann Stud, where he proved highly popular, and was ridden by Sören von Rönne.
Christian’s foals are known to inspire with charisma, long legs and powerful, elastic movements. In November 2014, a Christian son, Oak Grove’s Che, out of a Check In mare, was licensed for OS-International. As a 5 year old he won the opening day of the Bundeschampionate and competed at the World Championships for young horses.
In 2017, Christian offspring continued to shine with 3 year old La Marron winning the Oldenburg Mare grading. Several of his offspring have been put forward to licensing in Holstein and a Christian x Lincolm L stallion was licenced in Vechta, Oldenburg in 2017.
As a young stallion, Christian achieved four 10s in his licensing and qualified with top scores for the Bundeschampionate final for six-year-old jumpers in 2012.
His sire, Cartani, is result of breeding two of the world’s best showjumpers – two-time Olympic stallion Carthago Z and 1994 World Equestrian Games team gold winner Taggi. A Holsteiner Premium Stallion, Cartani has been a member of the Danish team on numerous occasions including 2013 European Championships under Charlotte Von Rönne.
Christian’s dam Free Lilly (sport name: Who Knows Lilly) competed in the 2004 Olympic Games, in Athens. His grand-dam, Miss Playback, is the dam of 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.
Since arriving at Gornall Equestrian, Christian 25 has had several top placings in 3* shows across Europe.
