Thank you

Earlier this month, Lars Nieberg announced the retirement of the 16-year-old Holsteiner stallion Contagio (Colman x Lordanos). 

Contagio has had a long and successful career, first with Lars Nieberg – and then with Max and Gerrit Nieberg. With Gerrit in the saddle, the handsome stallion won the CSI3* Grand Prix in Frankfurt in 2017. Contagio also has podium finishes from Nörten-Hardenberg, Drachten, Cagnes-sur-Mer, Kronenberg, Salzburg, Liège and Spangenberg to look back at. 

Contagio already has successful offspring in the sport, such as Con Taggio – previously seen with Beezie Madden, Cessna – seen with Georgina Bloomberg, McLain Ward’s Contagious and Henrik von Eckermann’s Best Boy. 

With this photo special, we wish Contagio a happy retirement!
