Carina is a 2012 filly by Contender out of Slew’s Hot Topic. She is very fancy with lots of chrome and lovely movement. She is branded Hanoverian, is microchipped and a lifetime registration with USEF. She has a good work ethic and lovely gaits. She will be a lovely dressage or jumping prospect. Carina has a clean set of x-rays done in the fall of 2015. She is started nicely under saddle. She has not been ridden in the last two years as she has had two foals. We have just weaned her filly in December of 2018 and are starting her back under saddle. Carina is offered at a reduced price as we are needing to reduce our herd.
Contendor has successfully competed at International Grand Prix in the United States and Germany. He also competed in World Cup Qualifying Grand Prix with several placings in 2004-05.
Contendor‘s pedigree combines two of the world‘s most successful show jumping and dressage bloodlines. His sire, Calypso II, was an international show jumper under M. Rüping and became an outstanding progenitor. This line comes from the famous stallion line of Cor de la Bryere.
Carina’s dam is a Seattle Slew descendent. She was the top non-hanoverian mare during her inspection.
