‘Congratulation’ becomes Premium Stallion 2018

Our young stallion Congratulation became premium stallion at the Oldenburg licensing in November 2018.

The only thing complementing Congratulation is applause. The extraordinary gene in which this pedigree is based is worth praising. The bloodline connection between Cornet Obolensky with Diarado- Landgraf I- Capitol I – Sacramento Song xx from 741 couldn’t have been a better match.

21 of Cornet Obolensky´s oldest offspring have advanced to the highest level of show jumping. Never before has a stallion been so proponent in passing on his talent for top-level sport. From the moment Cornet Obolensky entered the world of breeding, riders as well as breeders have been fascinated. In the 30-day test this phenomenal athlete received a 9.24 score for jumping aspects and a 10 for free jumping. Once the stallion was teamed up with Marco Kutscher in the saddle the admiration for Cornet Obolensky´s jumping talent simply rocketed. The combination qualified for the Bundeschampionat´s finals with amazing scores. Cornet Obolensky´s first crop of sons saw the immediate approval of top-class stallions Cristallo I (1.60m classes with Henrik von Eckermann), Cornado NRW (1.60m classes with Marcus Ehning) and Conte Bellini (the absolute revelation of the 2013 World Cup Finals in Göteborg under the Latvian rider Kristaps Neretieks). And there is Daniel Deusser´s phenomenal ace Cornet d´Amour, who also stems from Cornet Obolensky´s first crop. Cornet Obolensky´s first crop also produced Marco Kutcher´s current top horse Cornet´s Cristallo and Emanuele Gaudiano´s EC star Cocoshynsky. At this stage Cornet Obolensky has at least 32 offspring competing at 1.60m level and we´re still counting.

The dam sire, Diarado can be regarded as the founder of a new line for international show jumping breeding. Diarado was champion of the Holstein licensing in 2007 and with numerous marks between 9 and 10, was the undisputed champion of his stallion performance test in Schlieckau in 2008. He impresses with exemplary ease at the jump, with superior scope, a willingness to perform that is second to none, manoeuvrability and intelligence, attributes that are necessary for today’s technical courses. Diarado won several show-jumping classes; in 2010 he won the qualifier at the Bundeschampionship with a mark of 9.3 and in the final, he won the Bronze medal (with two marks of 9.0). To date, he has regularly been highly placed at advanced level/S and came third in the Grand Prix (S***) at the traditional Dobrock competition. His offspring are clearly marked by their father: pleasing with their striking type, easy to ride, strong movement and with a lot of scope. This is why they are much sought-after at numerous auctions. To date, 37 sons were licensed in Germany, amongst them numerous premium sires. The Oldenburg Stallion Days in 2013 in Vechta were a festival for Diarado: His son De Quidam was champion stallion of the OS-collection and sold for 115.000 euros to Westphalia. Diarado's Boy was the top price at 450.000 euros at the AOS-auction in 2011 and proclaimed Ia main premium winner. A striking number of his offspring qualified for the German national championships and were placed finalists.

Diarado is also placed above average in the dressage breeding value estimation. His sire Diamant de Semilly is one of the best show jumping sires worldwide and with Dicapo in 2011 and with Diamant de Quidam in 2015 has produced two Champion Stallions at the OS-licensing, as well as other licensed sons who currently receive much attention.
