Comthago unites the genes of show jumping phenomenon Comme Il Faut with a performance dam line from Holstein. With Comme Il Faut, Carthago, Caretino, Constant and Roman all in a line, Comthago has the complete package of genes to succeed in both sport and breeding. Comme Il Faut, who competes at the very highest level with Marcus Ehning, is a son of the world-class sire Cornet Obolensky, who at a young age is already among world’s best showjumping producers. Genetically, Comme Il Faut may even become more interesting than his sire, since Comme Il Faut’s dam is the legendary mare Ratina Z. Additionally; Comme Il Faut has won the World Cup of Madrid and the Grand Prix competitions of Vienna and Paderborn. Comthago’s grand sire Carthago brings in unlimited scope - himself competing at two Olympic Games with Jos Lansink, Atlanta and Sydney. In breeding, Carthago is among the best, just like great-grand sire Caretino who is still represented by his offspring in the most prestigious arenas. Constant and Roman also jumped at the highest level.
The dam line of Comthago is highly interesting as well: dam Miss Carthago jumped successfully at 1.30m level in Germany, while grand dam Joyce I competed at Grand Prix level with both Jörg Kreutzmann and USA’s Laura Kraut. Great-grand dam Elegance competed at 1.35m level, and second great-grand dam Prinzess jumped at 1.40m level. Conclusion: a true sport dam line. Additionally Comthago’s dam - Miss Carthago - produced the international show-jumper Look of Love as well as being the half-sister to the Grand Prix show-jumper Freestyle. Great-grand dam Prinzess produced international show jumpers Mr. Chic and Cantara as well as being the grand dam to another three international show jumpers.
Comthago himself seems to combine all the assets from his pedigree: he has the appearance, the gallop and looseness of a modern jumping horse. He jumps with scope, take off, a good bascule and he is careful. Convincingly, Comthago finished as the reserve champion of the stallion approvals in Mecklenburg.
As a 5 year old he made his first international starts and he impressed, for example with his round in the stallion competition in Zuidbroek
