We received some good news from overseas in October as results came in from DSA, the National Championships for the Danish Sporthorse Breed Society. A Clintord son named Carrera Love laid down a prize winning round in the five-year-old National Championship finals and earned praise from the judges.
Lene Ibsen, Carrera Love’s breeder and owner, writes “He is a wonderful horse with a magnificent temper. He loves jumping and always acts very cool, no matter what surroundings we put him in. I would like very much to use Clintord in my breeding again.”
Beautiful Celebrity T, Clintord’s only daughter in Denmark, continued her winning ways by scoring 8.5 (out of 10) for technique and scope, and 810 points in her riding test, earning RDH certification and admittance into the main studbook. She already has accolades from prior years, winning the championship in jumping for 3-year-old mares at the Danish licensing trials in 2013. Annette commented about her young mare ‘She is lovely, and something special from the day she was born. As a breeder, you just know, when they have the X-factor.’
Congratulations to Lene and Annette. Keep sending us the news as these young horses advance in their careers.
Sometimes I entertain myself by surfing the web looking for the offspring of our Holsteiner stallion Clintord I making their appearances in Europe. Last night I ran across the results of Katrinelund, the Danish Warmblood licensing event just held this month in Denmark. Clintord’s daughter Celebrity T was the champion in jumping performance for 3 year old mares. Congratulations to Celebrity T and her breeder Annette Juhl Taldorf of Stutteri Taldorf in Olgod, Denmark.
Remarks of the judges are included thanks to Brian Bech-Hansen, who made the translation for me, commenting: “Wow did I not realize how difficult it is to translate horse technical language from one language to another 🙂
