Karajan: Hanoverian, 2014, Bay,16.3 hands
Karajan is one VERY SPECIAL guy! Cool as a cucumber, light on his feet, and supple through his body. He has a pedigree that backs up his obvious quality.
The Westphalian licensing of 2016 was marked by an outstanding lot of show jumpers which shone brilliantly at free jumping. Among those, one stallion was especially remarkable: Karajan. All experts agreed, his free jumping was sensational – with overview, perfect manner, and boundless capacity. A stallion with a good face, correct foundation, supple body, and outstanding basic gaits.
His phenomenal pedigree carries three Olympic fathers, who dominate international show jumping. Kannan, currently No. 5 in the world rankings, is father of Nino de Buissonnets (Steve Guerdat), the Olympic champion of 2012 and fourth of Rio, 2016. Verdi, still actively participating in sports at the age of 14, won the silver medal with the Dutch team in London and the Gold medal at the World Championships and the European Championships.
Cornet Obolensky, currently No. 3 in the world rankings, was represented by six offspring in Rio. Six million Euros in lifetime earnings were won by his offspring.
The falling dam line carries Lincoln L, by Landadel, who won international jumping Grand Prix, as well jumping stallions Don Juan and Servus. The dam line provided licensed stallions Samorano and Sulaiky v.d. Helle by Stakkato, as well as Cornet Session and Coloseo by Cornet Obolensky.
