This is our thanks to the fantastic Cornet Obolensky for his contribution to the sport! He was born in Belgium 1999 and his breeder was Degraeve Thierry. When he was born he got the name Windows van het Costersveld, but it was later on changed to Cornet Obolensky. Cornet is by Clinton x Heartbreaker and is an approved BWP stallion. Marco Kutscher and Cornet Obolensky have been a pair for years, and the two were among the true crowd favorites on the international showjumping circuit. Cornet's favorite hobbies are eating and sleeping......but he can certainly perform too! Among his highlights is a team gold medal from the 2011 Europeans in Madrid.Cornet has jumped in money all over the world - in Nations Cups, World Cups and Global Champions Tours. He will be remembered as one of the greatest horses of this decade. Cornet is a true beauty, and with Marco he was the definition of elegance and style.Always looking gorgeous!We will miss seeing the beautiful Cornet and Marco jumping around the globe!Cornet is already a very well proven and sought-after sire, and has several offspring competing at the height of the sport. Cornet had a good start on the outdoor season this year, and was on the German winning Top League teams in Rome and Rotterdam. They were to be the last of his career. Thanks Cornet for all the amazing moments!
