Contefino’s sire, Contender, is Holstein’s leading sire. Contender has dominated the Federal National breeding rating for many years. Contefino’s dam is sired by Corofino. Corofino demonstrated his phenomenal jumping ability by scoring a perfect 10 during his stallion performance test and later he achieved victories in International Competition.
Contefino earned the highest scores at the Holsteiner Stallion Approval of any stallion in the United States. Contefino was sold to Germany at age 6. He was known throughout Europe for his remarkable jumping ability. He went on to compete in the 1.60m in Europe.
However, an injury has led to his retirement from the show ring and now Contefino is back in the States to pass on his legendary jumping ability. Contefino has already proven himself as a very successful sire even with a relatively small amount of offspring, having produced many top horses and three approved stallions.
