Contenda -The Ultimate Dual Purpose Sire: Contenda is a worldclass dual purpose sire who is ideal for those wanting to breed specialised eventing, show jumping, dressage or show horses. The added bonus of breeding to a dual purpose sire is that your foal will not just be limited to either the show,dressage or jumping arena but will have the talent and quality to succeed in any of these disciplines.

If you aim to ride at the highest level in eventing today you need to be riding a horse that is not just a good cross country horse but has the ability to be a specialist in each of the three disciplines - dressage,showjumping and cross country . Contenda offers breeders just that.

Contenda offers breeders the rare combination of......

*a light modern athletic type with proven ability to gallop

*worldclass dressage, showjumping and eventing bloodlines in his pedigree

*Outstanding temperament and trainability

* Excellent conformation and a beautiful head

But most importantly for the breeder Contenda is a prepotent, highly fertile sire who is passing these traits on to his progeny.

Contenda carries the latest and most highly sort after bloodlines that the world has to offer. Each generation of his pedigree on both his spree and dam line is filled with outstanding individuals who have gone on to produce the worlds leading showjumping, eventing and dressage horses as well as producing the next generation of supersires.

Contenda is a prepotent stallion who clearly stamps his progeny. His offspring from a wide variety of mares are remarkably consistent in type and quality. He crosses particularly well with TB mares. His progeny reliably have super movement, incredible jumping abilty, show horse good looks and a calm trainable temperament.

His personal performance record has been outstanding. He competed to 2* Eventing with Shane Rose where he either won or placed in the top 3 at each of his starts. Due to injury he was forced to retire from eventing at the start on the 2015 season.

Shane Rose gave the following comment about Contenda when he was interviewed by An Eventful Life.

"He (Contenda) certainly has got the ability to go as far as he needs to go for 4 Star and beyond, he has super super jumping ability, he is great on the flat and he appears to gallop great,he just gallops and jumps and doesn't get tired near the end of the course" Shane Rose - Olympic Silver and Bronze Medallist
