The 2017 final of the World Breeding Dressage Championships for five-year-olds proved a true triumph for Simone Pearce and Casablanca.
The Australian rider and Hanoverian mare rocked the international dressage arena in Ermelo, earning 9.5 for trot, 8.8 walk, 9.5 canter, and a whooping 9.0 for capacity, placing the combination 4th in the championships final.
Château de Fontaine specialise in breeding dressage horses of the highest standard, from elite sport mares currently competing. Meaning the head-turning mare by Conen x Fidertanz is not only a highly succesful sport star, she’s also the dam of three exquisite 2017 full siblings by Grand Galaxy Win – who are roaming our fields at the Estate in Normandy, France.
Casablanca herself is in fact interestingly bred, by renowned Ines Westendarp, featuring jumpers on the top line. Her sire Conen is by Chequille Z by Caretano, out of a mare by the Landadel son, Land Classic, while her dam's side is all dressage – Fidertanz, Weltmeyer, Bolero.
Thank you for everything Simone Pearce and Casablanca - here's to looking at you.
