Clinton x Heartbreaker
BWP – 1999 – 1.71m – grey

An exceptional stallion, who leaves no one indifferent, both for his temperament and his exceptional jumping ability. He ranks 15th in the Hippomundo stallion ranking for 2023 based on the performance of his offspring in international shows.

CORNET OBOLENSKY has become a formidable “father’s father” and “mother’s father”. Often criticized for the sometimes delicate mental state of his offspring and his low fertility, his retirement from competition has greatly improved his fertility. As for the character, it will of course be considered in the crossbreeding.

Spotted as a 6-year-old at a young horse event in Lyon, “Cornet” already impressed: charismatic, powerful and supple. Exact qualities that he also passes on to his descendants.

A very classic cross between Clinton and Heartbreaker, both still regarded today as stallions that breathed modernity into the 2000s. They’ve provided sturdy, powerful and fantastic-looking horses, sometimes complicated but great with experienced riders.

He’s a breed leader who crosses very well with French mares.
