Katie is by the Holsteiner Chateau De Brion, who is a superb young showjumper with fantastic bloodlines.  We bred her out of Loveden Sea Swallow who's bloodlines speak for themselves having the intention of breeding a 148cm sports pony.

We are thrilled with her conformation, movement and hope she will be an exceptional addition to our breeding programme.

We have been proved time over that this is a fabulous mare, and will be the most fantastic addition to our broodmare herd.  She has been loved by all that have seen her.  Taking the SPSS Champion Mare 2010 and Grading with an Elite Status through the BEF 2011 series as a three year old.

Katie is now in 2013/14 backed and been ridden away with the intention of her jumping BSJA then returning home as a brood mare in the long term future.

Katies Sire - Chateau De Brion - Holstein Standing at Quainton Stud

At the Southern Elite Auction 2007 Chateau de Brion Quainton foal sold for the highest amount at the auction

Chateau de Brion was licensed as a Holstein stallion in April 2007 at Holsteiner Verband (Germany). He is also 70 day tested, Marbach 2005 and is a licensed and approved stallion for life. He was leased to the German State Stud for 2006 where he proved to be very popular. Chateau de Brion is now in Great Britain training and competing with International Show Jumper Ben Maher who says "He has a perfect jumping technique, combined with fantastic balance and he is ultra careful".

Chateau de Brion was the Sire of the highest priced foal in the Southern German Elite Foal Auction (€22,000) in 2007. His 2007 jumping wins and Intrnational high placings include the 5 year Old Championships at Towerlands Masters FEI and Arezzo Italy. Chateau de Brion also collected numerous wins N/C, Fox, Grade C’s in 2007.

Chateau de Brion is a rare Cassini I offspring, as most Cassini I offspring are grey and heavy like their father, Chateau de Brion however is lighter in type and bay in colour. He is more thoroughbred in type (which makes him faster and nimble), this is exactly what the German breeding associations are trying to breed and call a "modern type" of horse.

At Chateau de Brion's Holsteiner Verband grading in April 2007 he was one of only seven stallions to be permitted to be graded, he was the only British owned holstein stallion and he scored a very impressive 8.00 for his jumping.

It is an incredible opportunity to have this type of stallion in the UK and available at stud to British mares. Ben Maher and Chateau de Brion are extremely well suited and already achieving great successes across Europe, there are no plans to break up this golden team.

Cassini I (sire to Chateau de Brion) offspring is much sort after and in high demand. Two Cassini I sons Cumano and Berlin won gold medals at the World Equestrian Games in 2006, this is symbolic of the success of his progeny.

With a top stamm line Chateau de Brion could be a foundation horse in any breeders stable. When he was presented at the German State Stud on the 4th and 5th February 2006 he was leased to them in Landgestut, Moritzburg and was available for natural coverings. Chateau de Brion was so popular that they requested him for their 2007 season. He was also previously presented at the 2005 Munich stallion grading and also at the Stallion presentation 2006 Moritzburg.
