Sire: CONTIFAX had a long, successful show jumping career in Europe at the international level including a World Cup victory. In Europe, he was approved for breeding by the Oldenburg Verband and Westphalia. Contifax is by the famous CONTENDER and out of a dam by RITUAL. CONTENDER became completely convincing as a sire at the 2006 Holsteiner approvals with five approved sons. Ritual comes from the famous 776 mare line, with RAMIRO as Sire of the Century. Upon arrival in North America, Contifax proved his versatility and rideability, quickly taking top honours in the hunter ring. 2015 was a winning season for Contifax as Champion of multiple Canadian Hunter Derby Series events including the $15,000 RMSJ Hunter Derby. He finished as both Canadian Hunter Derby Series Western Canadian Champion, Canadian National Regular Season Champion, and Jump Alberta's Hunter Horse of the Year.
Dam: SAHALEE is a premium scoring mare who produces excellent foals that excel in multiple disciplines. Her dam sire, SILBERPFEIL was an imported stallion with quality gaits and a great disposition. He carries some of the best bloodlines of Holstein breeding. His impressive pedigree combines the famous jumping bloodlines of SILBERSEE with the bloodlines of the COR DE LA BRYERE, who has produced top performance horses in all three disciplines: dressage, eventing, and show jumping. Silberpfeil’s sire SILVESTER, has already entered the list of Holstein sires whose progeny are competition winners of some note.
Notes: CALYPSO KEY has a friendly personality and a beautiful temperament with excellent bloodlines for dressage or hunter/jumper. Her lovely movement and jump will make her a great choice for the hunter rings, but she would also do well in the jumper and dressage. Calypso Key is an exceptional young prospect.
