In 2008, at the age of four, Conthargos won the Deister Championship in Dobrock with 9.5 and effortlessly qualified for the German Championships in 2009. Due to an injury, he could not continue his own career, but his offspring very successfully took over from him. Almost 20 of his sons have been licensed, including our double Champion Stallion Conthalou, Continental Blue, who was highly placed in the Grand Prix of Herning/DEN and Neumünster/GER, Coeur Rouge, OS premium stallion, as well as Conthinder/Andrzej Oplatek/POL, who was victorious in Salzburg.
And Conthargos has other strings to his bow! Conmitage won the gold medal at the Belgian Show Jumping Championships (6y.o.) and Classé pour toi/Frederic Tillmann/GER was placed in the finals of the World Championships for young horses and of the German Championships (5y.o.). In 2020, Comtess was Vice Regional Champion of five-year-old Oldenburg show jumping horses and a colt by Conthargos won the silver and bronze medals at the German Foal Championships.
At the beginning of his career, his sire Converter won 22 show jumping competitions up to intermediate (M) level with scores up to 9.0. In 2005, he won the Oldenburg Regional Championships, was placed at the German Championships and was second best show jumping stallion at the World Championships for young horses in Lanaken/BEL. Five of his sons were licensed, including Convertus, who was placed at international competitions. He has produced over 40 descendants who are successful at advanced (S) level and are led by Crüger, team third of the European Championships with Max Haunhorst, Compagnon/Hans Thorben Rüder and Caja/Martin Sterzenbach.
Conthargos’ dam produced a number of international show jumping horses, including Chacjandra (by Chacco-Blue) and Afrika (by Converter I)/both ridden by Werner Muff/SUI, who were successful in 1.55m show jumping competitions.
Ridden by Jos Lansink/BEL, the dam’s sire Carthago was the most successful show jumping stallion in the world at the time, taking part in two Olympics, in Atlanta/USA in 1996 and Sydney/AUS in 2000. His sporting offspring, registered in Germany alone, including Marco Kutscher’s/GER Cash, Mylord Carthago/Pénélope Leprévost/FRA and Classix Girl/Sören von Rönne/GER, have won over 4.4 million Euros in prize money. Amongst the most influential of his over 50 licensed sons are Colman, Cardino, Carinue, Cartani, Carvallo BB and Crown Z.
The internationally successful show jumper Nike results from Conthargos’ dam line, which is of French origin and exclusively counts, with Latus I, Sandro and Colorado AA, stallions from our stud.
