Comme Il Faut (Archived)


Archived - semen not available

Comme Il Faut was second in the World Championship for five-year-olds at Lanaken, Belgium with Franz Josef Dahlmann in 2010. As an eight year old, Comme Il Faut came to Marcus Ehning in the summer of 2013. From the beginning, the exceptional stallion demondstrated his qualities on the international stage. At the start he jumped the youngster classes but after only one year Ehning advanced him to classes at the 5 star level, like the Grand Prix at the Global Champions Tour in London. In 2013 and 2014 with Marcus Ehning, he achieved good results in 7/8 year old classes, then two seconds in 2014 – at Paderborn***, 1.50m class, and in the Grand Prix at Dortmund ***. Comme Il Faut's bloodlines are interesting since his dam, the great jumper, Ratina Z, is by Ramiro.

2014 2nd place in an international class with jump-off, 1,50m in Paderborn.

2014 2nd place in the Grand Prix of Dortmund.

Comme Il Faut was very active and successful in sport in 2018.  He won the qualificative Grand Prix of Chantilly with Marcus Ehning. The duo also placed 2nd at the Nations Cup of Rotterdam representing Team Germany. Also in 2018, Comme Il Faut's offspring, Chao Lee, became Bundeschampion for Jumping Horses and won a prize of over one million Euros.

His Sire, Cornet Obolensky, is one of the most famous sires of our time. He competed in the 2008 Olympics at only nine years old. His outstanding offspring include Cornet D'Amour, Cornado NRW, Cornet's Cristallo, Cocoshynsky, Cornetto King, and Comme Il Faut. Together they have earned over 3.7 million euros. The Clinton/Heartbreaker cross has produced multiple grand prix jumpers including Cordess and Consul DL Vie Z, and 18 licensed stallions.
His dam, Ratina Z, is one of the most famous and jumpers of all time. She won back-to-back team golds at the Barcelona and Atlanta Olympic Games and also won individual silver from Barcelona. She won the World Cup in 1993 and the Grand Prix of Aachen in 1996, team gold at the World Championships in Den Haag in 1994 and double gold at the European Championships in Mannheim 1997. Ratina's sire Ramiro Z was a successful competitor with more than 60 licensed sons.
Comme Il Faut works best with a tall mare; his offspring all inherit his ability and power.
