Cornet Obolensky x Stakkato
WEST – 2006 – 1.72m – grey

Now in its third year of breeding in France, breeders will be able to benefit from the explosion in production. Colestus was already a leader in the international young horse rankings, but 2023 consecrated him in style. Don’t hesitate!

Ludger Beerbaum knows that the French appreciate progeny-tested stallions with good competition records.

Colestus was first ridden by Philipp Schoder and Marcus Doring, with whom he won the young horse classes twenty-five times. In 2012, he won the Wesphalie championship for 6-year-old horses, then after two clear rounds, he finished 8th in the German championship and was a finalist in the world championship at Lanaken.

In 2013, Colestus accumulated first places in international events in the Yougster-Tour in Hannover, The Hague and Bâlve. He won the silver medal at the highly competitive German Championships for 7-year-olds.

In 2014, he joined Germany’s most prestigious stable in Riesenbeck with Ludger Beerbaum. And so begins his ascent to the highest level.

At just 8 years of age, the grey stallion won a 1.60 m event in Paris with Marco Kutcher, and then, with Ludger Beerbaum, was placed in 5 other 1.50 m CSI5* events (Paris, Verona, Aachen, Hamburg, Stuttgart, Madrid). At the age of 8, he took part in his first World Cup GP in Madrid. In 2015, he was regularly ranked under the saddle of Ludger Beerbaum on 1.50m and 1.60m. Madeleine Winter-Schultze, a patron of the Beerbaum stables, acquired the stallion, who went on to score some of his most memorable victories: 1.60m CSI5* Paris 2015, 1.60m CSI5* Hong Kong 2015, 1.60m CSI4* De Dortmund 2017, 1.60m CSI5 GCT/GCL Monte Carlo 2017, CSI4* Hagen 2017, 1.60m CSIW-3* Poznan 2017, 1.65m CSI-W 1.60m Stuttgart 2018, 1.60m CSI5W GCT Shanghai 2019.

On the maternal side, the stock is rich in excellent direct-line stallions: Stakatto, Pilot, Durchlaucht. Spice Girl is also the dam of S and M class winners. Her granddam, Pépita, produced the stallions Harry Potter (Holland), Wessex and Cornet Cocconuts, all S class winners in Germany.

Ludger Beerbaum’s verdict: “He’s adorable, my grooms are fans. He doesn’t have a “macho” character and on the bars he’s particularly alert and elastic. These qualities are essential if you want to stay at the top level for a long time.”

Crossing advice

COLESTUS has perfect style on the bars. It’s a model in terms of speed of execution. He’s a big stallion, but he’s supple and always in balance.

You can therefore entrust him with small mares, stiff mares or mares with perfectible movement (especially in front).

Few mares would be unsuitable, except those that are too large.
