    LOVE THEM!!

    Can be small, very good minds, three very good & powerful basic gaits with a "can do" attitude. Outgoing and affectionate.

    If you are lucky enought to get a filly and breed her, they bring a lot of positive values to the mix

    I had a Contendro filly this year, out of my Phantom/Polydor mare. She is a keeper for me. Of course, I can't tell you much about her work ethic, etc., b/c she is just a baby. However, I can say that she is much more refined (at this point) than her dam. She also got a gorgeous head and neck, probably from her sire. This same mare has had a Cassini II filly and an Indoctro filly and of the three this one is definitely the most feminine and typey.
    Can't comment on size yet, although she isn't small for her age at this point. But the mare is 16.3, and long-lined.

    Small size is fine. More interested in rideability, especially for dressage.
    Thanks!

    I have an elite Han mare by Contendro who I adore. She is beautiful, sweet, fun, and easy. The whole package. She is a bit small, though, about 15.3h. Love this mare. Very special.
