A record breaking sire with talent in dressage and jumping.
Having been a premium stallion at the Westphalian licensing, Cristallo I had a very successful performance career as a young stallion. He was the Reserve Champion of the 4 year old stallions at the 2007 Optimum under Ingrid Klimke. In 2008, he went on to win two qualifying shows for the Bundeschampionate under Henrik von Eckermann, and won 8 M Level classes for young jumpers in a row. At the 2008 Bundeschampionate, he was 2nd in the qualifying round with an excellent score of 8.7 and competed in the Finals for the 5 year old Jumpers.
In 2009, he again demonstrated his absolute willingness to perform putting in four remarkable clear rounds at the Bundeschampionate. He finished 2nd in both of the qualifying rounds with scores of 8.7 and 8.6, and scored an 8.8 in the final round advancing to the jump off where he finished 8th overall. In 2010, the seven-year-old Cristallo I took the hurdle to advanced (S) level classes. With countless clear rounds, he was ready for his first international competitions, and he proved this placing in Hachenburg and Rulle. He also set accents as a sire: Champion Foals, e.g. in Sudweyhe; top auction horses; 10 State Premium daughters; the Champion Jumper Mare at the Elite Broodmare Show in Westphalia as well as Rhineland; and offspring that won tests for young riding horses. All of this catapulted him to the TOP 1 % in the FN's predicted jumper breeding value statistics in 2010.
After that, a record total of seven offspring from Cristallo I's first crop qualified for the Bundeschampionate (5-year olds) in Warendorf, three of which placed in the Final: Chancy K finished fourth, Cristobar, who had placed second in two of the qualifiers, took eighth place, and FBW Cristallos Lady finished twelfth. A Cristallo I daughter named California took the Westphalian Jumper Champion title in Münster-Handorf.
Six of Cristallo I's sons have been licensed so far, including the premium stallion Cristofin. Among his now twelve premium daughters you find the broodmare performance test and show jumping winners Cristalies, Carmina Burana W, Cristallos Cleo and Cerubina W. Because of their strong movement, Cristallo I's foals typically find buyers immediately.
Cristallo's sire, Cornet Obolensky, who is by Clinton, is one of the most successful stallions on the international show jumping scene. His dream career got off to a rocket start. The second Reserve Champion at the licensing in Münster-Handorf, his first crop produced 14 sons that were licensed - and with the seven that were approved for breeding at the 2008 NRW licensing, the number of Cornet Obolensky's licensed sons has increased to nearly 40.
As an 8 year old under the double European Champion and Olympic bronze medalist, Marco Kutscher, Cornet Obolensky won Grand Prix and Nations Cups such as the Samsung Super League Final in Barcelona/ESP which he also won again in 2008. He was placed on the German Olympic team in 2008 after having won bronze at the German Championships and in the Grand Prix of Balve and Cervia/ITA as well as first place in the Nations Cup of Rotterdam/NED.
Cristallo's dam, Cassie, who was known in sport as Cascavella 2, was a successful jumper mare up to medium (M) level. The dam's sire, Cassini I, is beyond any shadow of doubt: His sons, the gray Holstein stallions, Cumano and Caspar (alias Berlin), for example, were individual and team World Champions respectively. The granddam, Profilda, is another guarantee for performance. She won ribbons up to advanced (S) level under her sport name, Papaya 19. She is also a full sister of the licensed stallion, Pocalino (State Stud Warendorf, a Bundeschampionate participant who has also placed in international advanced (S) classes) and the dam of a successful sport mare named Cosima 144 (by Calido I) who was successful in show jumping up to medium (M/A) level
