Christian 25 is a striking grey Holstein stallion born in 2006. He is a tall, athletic, modern model of a Showjumping stallion who has proven to pass on his ride-ability, fantastic movement, conformation, and huge careful scope to his youngstock. He has bred some impressive offspring that are proving themselves in the sport.

Christian was previously based in Germany at the Bockmann Stud; whilst in Germany he predominantly focused on breeding after achieving high scores in his 30-day stallion licensing, including four 10’s.

Christian’s pedigree is full of top competition horses; his sire, Cartani, is the 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. Cartani, a Holsteiner Premium Stallion noted for his scope, hind leg technique and wonderful conformation, was a member of the Danish team on numerous occasions including the 2013 European Championships under Charlotte Von Rönne. Christian’s dam, Free Lilly (competed as 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 2. Liberty Life was placed fifth at the 1996 Bundeschampionate for six-year-old showjumpers, and later competed successfully under Gilbert Böckmann in Nations Cups, for which he was awarded the title VTV-Jumper Stallion.

Semen is priced at £1000 + VAT for up to 3 doses per mare. Bockmann Stud have a store of EU frozen semen for sale in Germany for those wishing to purchase semen for mares not in the UK.

Performance Record

Since moving to Gornall Equestrian and being based in the UK Christian has been focusing more on competing. He is well known on the International jumping circuit, having been selected to represent Team GB up to 5* level in 2018. Jamie and Christian have had success jumping 1m60 tracks, with good results including finishing 4th at Budapest CSIO5* in the World Cup qualifier, jumping double clear at Hickstead CSIO5* and coming 2nd at the Great Yorkshire Show in the prestigious national 1m60 competition “Cock O’The North”.

Progeny Information

Christian’s progeny are proving popular with breeders and showjumpers alike:

  • Coachella, an 8-year-old bay mare, has headed to Mexico from Australia for Olympic rider Matt Williams, with a view to becoming Australia’s next championship horse. Coachella has been very successful as a young horse already and has several placings under her belt. Matt is quoted “In my mind Christian is the next big thing in Showjumping breeding.”
  • Clitschko 17, a 7-year-old stallion ridden by Michael Duffy successfully competing and winning CSIYH classes.
  • Comfort, a 7-year-old stallion, was second reserve champion of he 2015 OS licensing in Vechta. He also has wins at 1.25m and has competed in CSIYH* and 1.30m classes.
  • Oak Grove’s Che was licensed for OS-International as a 2-year-old in 2014. As a 5-year-old, Che competed at the World Championships for young horses and won the opening day of the prestigious Bundeschampionate in Germany. Since then he has competed in CSIYH* classes with several clear rounds and placings internationally.
  • Christian’s offspring were the Showjumping price highlights at each of the Oldenburg auctions in 2018. La Marron, who won the Oldenburg mare grading in 2017 as a 3-year-old, sold under saddle at the Vechta auction at the beginning of 2018 for €141,000.
