Obolensky (Clinton x Heartbreaker)
1999 Grey Belgian Warmblood
Approved for: Oldenburg, Rhineland, Westphalia, Hanoverian
Obolensky is one of the hottest up and coming young
show jumping stallions in the world. At only 7 years
of age he had already reached international competition.
The highly elastic motion and superb uphill gallop
are well combined with jumping qualities that are
hard to equal in respect to capacity, leg technique
and manner of jumping. This special predisposition
is clearly predetermined by his first class pedigree.
His sire Clinton,
son of the international show jumping icon Corrado
I (Franke Sloothaak), himself a highly successful
international show jumper, not only combines the premium
national stallions Cor de la Bryère, Landgraf
I and Capitol in his pedigree but furthermore derives
from Holstein bloodline 8829.
damsire, Heartbreaker, who was victorious in World Cup events,
is a son of the probably most prominent Dutch sire of show jumpers
of the past 20 years, namely, Nimmerdor. The grandam, a successful
advanced class show jumper, produced the victorious international
competition sports horse Querido (by Feinschnitt I). Her sire
Randel Z, a son of Thieß Luther's successful international
competition sports mare Alarie Z, inter alia, brought forth the
international dressage horse Nector (Ingrid Klimke).
Cornet Obolensky was declared vice-champion and
the darling of the public at the main Northern Westphalian approval
of 2001. He absolved an exceedingly good 30 day test with an overall
score of 8.33, as third of his test lot, leading the field in
show jumping with the score of 9.24. He was moreover awarded the
top score of 10 for loose jumping.
