See for yourself why Contenda was chosen as the sire of Champion 4* eventing mare Gin and Juice’s 2018 foals!

Bred in Germany with the worldclass bloodlines of Contendro 1 / Bolero / Lugano. Contenda was purchased as a young horse by Wimborne Park Stud and exported to Australia where he has proven himself to be an elite athlete and one of the most versatile sires available in the world today.

As a performer Contenda has proven himself time and time again with numerous wins in Eventing, Showjumping and Dressage. His wins are too numerous to list here however can be viewed on his video.

Contenda is unique in that he possesses specialist level ability in each of the three Olympic disciplines – not just one. An invaluable trait in todays modern Sporthorse.

As a sire Contenda has proven himself to be the Ultimate Sporthorse Sire!

With Contenda’s eldest progeny now just 10 years old he has produced winning 3* eventers, 1.40m+ show jumpers, Grand Prix Dressage horses, National level winning Hunters, Young Showjumping Horse winners, Young Dressage Horse winners, Young Event Horse winners, Licensed Stallions, Head Stud Book Mares, multiple Elite and Premium awarded foals.

Contenda’s progeny possess the superior quality demanded by todays top professional sport horse riders yet their calm temperaments, excellent ridability and trainability mean that they are equally as successful and loved by amateur owners and junior riders.

Contenda’s progeny are widely known to have super paces with a powerful jump and plenty of scope over a fence. They are bold and brave yet careful all at the same time. If this isn’t enough Contenda’s progeny are great types, with correct conformation and beautiful heads. They are the ultimate all rounders!

Contenda crosses wonderfully with both warmblood and thoroughbred mares to produce a very modern type of sport horse . With thoroughbred mares he typically improves the front end conformation as well as adding movement, jumping technique and scope to the progeny.

Contenda is available in the USA and Canada via top quality frozen semen which can be purchased either by the dose or with a Pregnancy and Live YEARLING Guarantee* (* for online purchases only).

Purchase online at or through Carol Austin from Superior Equine Sires.
