The show jumping stallion Conthargos had to be put down at the age of 19 due to a sudden onset of laminitis, which unfortunately could not be treated by the vets who were called in immediately.
The Converter son, who was stabled at the stallion station of his breeder Paul Schockemöhle in Mühlen all his life, made a splendid impression with his Olympic numerous offspring that have been successful in show jumping all over the world. They include Conchento PS, who placed in the Grand Prix of St. Tropez, London, Geneva, Valence and Vilamoura under Gregory Wathelet (BEL) and Luciana Diniz (POR); Concona, who placed sixth in the Grand Prix of Hamburg under Ben Maher (GBR); and Cosa Nostra, who took part in the Olympic Games with Alberto Michan of Israel.
But the offspring of Conthargos are not only among the best in the show jumping ring, but also in eventing. Jadore Moi and Sophie Leube won the CCIO4* event in Boekelo, NED and came sixth at the German Eventing Championships in Luhmühlen.
The OS-stallion Conthargos is bred through Converter, Carthago, Latus I and Sandro in a direct line of value. His dam Cajandra Z produced a number of international show jumpers, including Chacjandra (by Chacco-Blue) and Afrika (by Converter I) among others who were successful in 1.60 m show jumping competitions. Conthargos himself won the Deister Championships on the Dobrock in 2008 as a four-year-old with a score of 9.5 and easily qualified for the Bundeschampionat in 2009.
Due to injury, Conthargos could not continue his own career, but among his offspring more than 20 of his sons were licensed, among them the OS Champion Stallion and main premium winner Conthalou, who is also shown by Paul Schockemöhle, and Continental Blue, who placed first in Grand Prix competitions. Currently in Westphalia a son of Conthargo was jumping champion and another 2nd reserve champion.
