About - Contendro ranked the top sire for eventing in the WBFSH Sire Rankings for the fifth time in 2019 along with ranking 25th for show jumping, since then he has consistently placed within the top 5 for eventing. He is a versatile sire with an excellent temperament, who passes on his good brain, rideability and type, which he has proven by producing 108 approved sons, 63 offspring that successfully compete at 1.60m level, seven Grand Prix dressage horses and three 5* eventing horses. 

Performance - Contendro won a premium at the 1999 Holstein licensing, and was champion of his performance test in 2000. He was placed in the 4yr old National Championships, and qualified for the 5yr old Bundeschampionat, but since then his breeding career has meant that he performs rarely. His full brother Contendro II has jumped up to grand prix and is also a licensed stallion. 

Sire - Sire Contender won the 1987 Adelheidsdorf stallion performance test with a jumping index of 146.6. He went on to be the reserve Hauptprämie winner in Oldenburg on the basis of his excellent first crop of foals. He has 127 licensed sons and 498 offspring competing in sport; 25 of his licensed sons also jumped at grand prix. Among them are Montender (German Champion, double bronze medallist at the Athens Olympic Games and double gold medallist at the 2005 European Championships), Colore, Catwalk van de Helle, Chellano Z and Con Air. 

Damline - Contendro's state premium dam produced four licensed sons, and two state premium mares. Her son Caretano was Vice-Bundeschampion as a five-year-old, and World Young Horse Champion as a seven-year-old, but he sadly died before fulfilling his full potential. Contendro's full sister produced the licensed son Cosimo M, and four state premium mares. The mare line has produced the licensed stallions Conteur, Calypso, Cassito, Caballo, Cartiano 3, Concord, Cariano, Morphy and Lapaz.

Progeny - Contendro has produced offspring competing at the highest level in all three disciplines; he has 47 grand prix showjumping offspring, and CCI4* eventer NZB Campino and grand prix dressage horses Chagall, Chopin, Catch You and Amichelli are all Contendro sons. Codex One and NZB Campino both competed at the Olympics in showjumping and eventing respectively.  In 2012, his daughter, Corona won the 5-year-old Bundeschampionat, while Hello Annie has won almost €120,000 on the GCT tour.
