Holstein has noticeably outperformed all other German breeding areas with international show jumpers in the last decades and they have achieved this worldwide success with a relatively small mare base. The quality is so high that all other German and foreign breeders have clearly profited from Holstein. A look at the pedigrees makes it particularly clear, the breeders who breed show jumpers, need to have the Holstein gene. The predominant position of the Holstein breed is clear, nationally and internationally, Holstein has proportionally placed the highest ratio of show jumpers in the world of international showjumping whether it be they have the holsteiner brand or the holsteiner genetics. 

For this reason I began the search for the breeders in New Zealand for a stallion that could contribute and compliment what we already have here and have landed what I believe is a breeding jewel, Corofino II.

Global Performance Horses has been breeding for 22 years. We are based in Nelson. Initially my interests were with Eventers firstly producing them and competing to advanced level. Having produced Tokyo Joe whom went on to compete at the Sydney Olympics. During this time I bred for eventing and the resident stallion Hula Town has been a very sucessful sire of Eventers.

Six years ago my interests moved to the European Jumpers and I then purchased an Aloube Z mare in Germany from the stam 890 (Eurocommerce Berlin's family). She had a Corrado I colt which is now standing as a stallion in Australia.

Two years ago I purchased a Corrado I mare from the sister of the great stallion Contender she is now in foal to Lansing (licensed Holstiener) . Lansing has many super horses jumping at 1.50cm + in Europe. The Corrado mare 'Cocett' competed also up to 1.50cm in Europe with more than 60 wins and placings.

We have really good access to frozen semen here in New Zealand but there is always a need for a quality licensed stallion that can provide chilled semen.

Corofino II is a world class competitor his own name is internationally recoginsed NOT just his pedigree and he is from one of the very best families in the world of showjumping.
