About & Performance - Cornet Obolensky rarely or never disappoints as a progenitor! For years already his offspring have proven to be assets of his great talents. Within a few years Columbus Z is sure to keep his older brothers company because he demonstrates that he definitely has all it takes that is expected of a modern-day sport horse. Blood, technique, capacity and quality … this stallion scores maximum points on all aspects and that´s what makes him so popular with his rider as well as the numerous breeders who are using him already. The combination of Cornet Obolensky with the Baloubet du Rouet blood of his dam Beirut 2, who was also active in the international circuit, gives Columbus Z that extra sporty touch.

Damline - His dam Beirut was a showjumper herself having competed internationally at 1.35m with german rider Kathrin Muhlen. She is sired by the great stallion Baloubet du Rouet who was individual gold medallist at the 2004 Athens Olympic Games, and three-time World Cup champion, Baloubet Du Rouet was undoubtedly one of the most successful breeding stallions of his generation. He won the French national championships for 7-year-olds under Nelson Pessoa, having been a finalist as a 6-year-old. Following his three successive World Cup victories (1998-2000), he was then not out of the top three in the following three years (2001-2003). Baloubet Du Rouet has been in the top ten of the WBFSH Sire Rankings every year since 2010, leading the rankings in 2012 & 2013. Grandsire Galoubet A jumped at the highest levels, winning team gold at the 1982 World Championships, and is one of the most dominant progenitors of jumping horses in the world.
