Keaton

Kannan — Contendro I

Description of Keaton

Keaton exemplifies the successful breeding philosophy to breed exceptional international outcross stallions on proven Holsteiner damlines.

His sire Kannan has been officially ranked among the top sires in the world for years, with sport horses like Olympic winner Nino de Buissonnets, Quabri de L’Isle and Molly Malone an obvious reflection of his sire qualities.

His dam sire Contendro I used to be one of the most frequently used stallions in Germany with successful showjumping offspring like Codex One, Conthendrix and Holiday by Solitour. Contendro I has also established an excellent reputation for his eventing offspring, with the Contender son topping the 2018 WBFSH eventing sire ranking.

The damline was bred through famous stallions like Ramiro and Landgraf I, as well as the TB sires Der Löwe and Royal Wash, with the mare Nigella a half sister to the licensed stallions Lancer I-III. The Holsteiner studbook has seen Keaton’s mare family 4847 come to the fore again and again through sport horse produce like Carlos Boy and Lysander and the licensed stallions Cascadello I+II, Lancer I-III and Cachas.

At the Neumunster stallion grading, the young stallion wowed grading committee, crowd and commentator, who went on to describe Keaton’s quality of movement as exceptional, particularly in view of the fact that quality of movement is quite the exception in Kannan offspring. Moreover, the second reserve champion stallion’s excellent structure was very convincing - an expressive face, a well-set neck, good back, and correct legs with sound hooves.

The Kannan son jumps with tremendous ability, very careful and with outstanding leg technique. Quite typical for his sire’s inheritance he displays a slightly straight top-line, yet excellent hind-leg technique over the jump.

Considerations for breeding:

Keaton being a stallion boasting strength, size and Holsteiner shape, he is expected to pass on these qualities to his offspring. This also applies for the jumping, where the stallion displays loads of quality and talent.
