Does the apple fall far from the tree? Cornet Obolensky and some of his offspring

Wednesday, 24 May 2017
Does the apple fall far from the tree

Back in 2013, Cornet Obolensky kicked off our series 'Does the apple fall far from the tree?' Fast forward four years later, and the stallion has a whole lot more famous offspring to offer. It's time to take another look at Cornet Obolensky, and his most well-known daughters and sons in the sport today. 

Now 18, Cornet Obolensky (Clinton x Heartbreaker) was retired from the sport in 2012 after a very successful career. The stallion won team gold at the European Championships in 2011 with Marco Kutscher in the saddle, and also jumped at the 2008 Olympic Games as well as at two World Cup Finals. Cornet Obolensky won Nations Cups in Rotterdam and Rome, and the World Cup of Zürich – all in 2012 – and also jumped to several podiums in many of the world's biggest Grand Prix competitions. 

Today, his legacy lives on through his many offspring that jump at the very top of the sport.
