Connor

Casall — Cor de la Bryere

Description of Connor

According to successful breeders, you have to combine the interesting in order to attain the exceptional. Eduard Struve did just that when breeding his mare Korrada to then 6-year-old Casall whom he recognized as a promising sire early on. The result of his considerations is Connor – a big-framed stallion with a particularly powerful back, and with long and correct legs. He has elastic, ground-covering and rhythmic movement with a particularly remarkable canter. His jumping is characterised by ability, carefulness and technique, but he is still rather easily impressed by his surroundings, similar to his sire at a young age. At 6 and 7 years, Connor chalked up numerous wins in young jumper classes and jumper classes to S level and also won the first ever 7-year-old jumper Championship at Elmshorn in 2013. He has improved steadily since and has achieved numerous valuable placings, also in classes at S** level. In 2016, Connor was leased to France where Nicolas Delmotte has been given the ride. The season has seen the combination form a strong partnership resulting in numerous placings and wins in 1.45 classes, for example at Fontainebleau and Bonheiden. According to Nicolas Delmotte, “Connor is an extraordinary balanced horse, and his compact body gives him further advantage. His main qualities are his quick responses, and he is very agile and careful over the jumps.” Competing at 1.50m level is now on the schedule for the upcoming season. His sire Casall is a high-profile international performance sire. Connor’s dam is a full sister to the licensed stallion Corrado I, successfully shown at international level by Bo Kristoffersen and Franke Sloothaak from 1991 to 1997. Stem 6879 ranks among the high achievers in the Holsteiner breeding programme. Today’s representatives include Carlina, successfully shown at the London Olympics by Pius Schwizer and Cassiato, winner of world cup classes under Australia’s Harley Brown. Connor’s first crops have already yielded ten state premium mares and four licensed Holsteiner sons, two of them licensed in 2013, one the reserve champion stallion Coruscant, the other Connect, a frequently used stallion stationed in the Netherlands. In 2016, the Neumünster Holsteiner stallion grading saw another reserve champion by Connor, Christer. This is how breeding director Dr. Thomas Nissen described his jumping: “Demonstrating good reactions and ample scope, he easily coped with all heights and fences we could possibly confront a two-and-a-half-year-old colt with in the jumping lane.”
