Iconic Sires and Breeding Services offers South African stallion and mare owners a wealth of international experience in the equine breeding.


Combining the best Holstein bloodlines with talent and modern type. Connect is already proving to be a worthy competitor in the international arena.


Connect was one of the most appealing stallions of the 2013 Holstein approvals. With his elegant exterior marked by TB, he was one of the crowd’s favorites. Not only the best jumper of his year, he also showed very appealing movements, in particular, his canter shows remarkable balance and strength.

Following his impressive performance at the stallion approvals, Connect has completed performance tests in Germany and Holland. He is a modern blood-type stallion who stood out in both of these ability tests, receiving high scores for his jumping and movement. At the ability test in Schlieckau (GER) Connect received a stunning 9,75 score for jumping talent, the highest score of all stallions that participated. During the 2016 KWPN stallion competition, his jumping skills and rideability were rewarded with a 9.0 and 9.5.

Now, with rider Caroline Müller in the saddle, Connect has already achieved his first international successes.


Sire Connor is, like the well-known Chellano Z, bred from the direct dam-line of Corrado I. He is a son of the acclaimed Casall out a mare by the legendary Cor de la Bryère.

In Connect’s dam-line we also find the Holsteiner stallions Contender and Lord, both well known and respected sires. This famous dam line (stamm 2067) has produced many successful 1.60m international jumpers such as Ambassador, Waldrick and Canterbury.
