For both breeding and sport, Comfortuna is a stallion for the future. Following his education by professional Magnus Österlund in Sweden, this quality son of Berlin returned to the VDL Stud. Giving scope and technique, sire Berlin performed at the highest level with Gerco Schröder and contributed to the team gold medal at the World Equestrian Games in Aachen in 2006. In the ‘Sires Lists’ Berlin is coming closer to being ranked with the world’s
best. Offspring H&M Zilverstar T, Ace, Athene and Caspar, all shine at the highest level of showjumping. Comfortuna’s grand sire
Nimmerdor needs no introduction. This ‘Stallion of the Century’ put -not only the VDL Stud- but also the entire Dutch breeding program of show jumpers on the worldwide map. Great-grand sire Celano, who himself jumped at Grand Prix level with Rob Ehrens, contributes the valuable genes of Capitol I.
Comfortuna comes from the successful dam line the Lavsca-dam line. Dam Solavsca Fortuna did not only produce Comfortuna, but also the successful show jumper Wega and she is the halfsister to the Grand Prix show jumper Quattro, ridden by Daniel Bedoya. Well known international show jumpers such as Bulavsco, Brighton Bay, Zellobee, the KWPN-approved Entertainer, Partner SD and Lost Boys Nandor Fortuna are all closely related to Comfortuna.
As a 3-year-old in 2012, Comfortuna was one of the eye-catchers of the stalliontest in Schlieckau, Germany. Since earning an 8 for rideability, a 9,08 for jumping talent, and for free-jumping a 10, Comfortuna has proven himself now in sport. Under Sweden’s Magnus Österlund he competed twice at the World Championships for Young Jumpers in Lanaken including advancing to the finals as a 6-year-old. Comfortuna spent the last few months at the VDL Stud and will continue his international sports career with James Billington.
Comfortuna meets the KWPN requirements for radiographs and roaring.
