Cornet Obolensky

The ultimate stallion. Proven as a competitor and as a sire of champions. World #2 Stallion in 2014 and World #3 Stallion in 2015 and 2016.


At the 2001 Westphalian stallion inspection Cornet Obolensky blew away the audience and received a 9.24 score for jumping aspects and a 10 for free jumping. In 2004, partnered with Marco Kutscher, he qualified for the Bundeschampionat´s finals with scores others can only dream of.
The partnership remained and Cornet Obolensky became a name to remember. Not only did they place in most of the top European competitions, but the pair were members of the German Nations Cup winning team at Rotterdam 5* where they also placed 2nd in the Grand Prix. Cornet won the CSI 3* at Cervia, and as a nine-year-old was the youngest member of the German showjumping team at the Beijing Games. In 2012, he was a member of the winning Nations Cup teams at Rotterdam and Rome, and won the Grand Prix of Zurich 5*.


Cornet Obolensky’s sire needs no introduction. Clinton, son of the great Corrado I, was an extremely successful international show jumper, and his own pedigree combines Cor de la Bryère, Landgraf I and Capitol. Whilst Cornet’s damsire, Heartbreaker, is another stallion who dominates in modern show jumping breeding and is a son of Nimmerdor, probably the most prominent Dutch sire of show jumpers from the past 20 years.
