If you’re searching for an intelligent and efficient showjumping prospect, there’s no way around this Carsten M&M. Coming out of a renowned breeding family, he stands out with scope, attitude and style. He has already proven all these qualities on the showground in his very first season by winning some classes and by taking the bronze medal at the indoor championships for young showjumpers of the Hanoverian breeding association. Carsten M&M is the right choice for a horse connoisseur with an appreciation for the extraordinary.
The Holstein sire Contendro I started his breeding career in the Hanoverian breeding area and he turned out to be the most important stallion son of his so influential father Contender. Relocated to France now, this Contendro I produced world-class performers in showjumping such as Codex One (Christian Ahlmann (GER)) or Cold Play (Fredrik Jönsson (SWE)). Gardefrau Top, the dam of this auction candidate, is a broodmare of great value. Bred by Graf Top I out of a dam by Gardeulan II, she combines the two former Hanoverian leading sires Grannus and Gotthard. Breeding her to Contendro I turned out to be a perfect match. There are many successfull full siblings to Carsten M&M, two of them were licensed as stallions, one has recently jumped at 1.40m-level as a seven-year-old and his full brother Congrato is already internationally placed in 1.45m-classes.
