Awarded a premium at his licensing, Conteur has become a stallion of the first order among the sires in Germany in just a few years. In spring 2001 he finished his 30-day test in Adelheidsdorf with the best results of all stallions and then took the Reserve Champion title at his 70-day test where he won the partial index for rideability with a clear margin in his favor and, as a result, was leased for several years by the State Stud in Celle. Gestüt Tannenhof is especially proud of this achievement since it presented Conteur a great opportunity in breeding which he took advantage of immediately.  Conteur sired numerous champion foals at shows in Hesse, Hanover, Holstein and in Rhineland and his offspring were awarded premiums all over Germany, including a good number of State Premium mares. At the 2005, his son Cocoloco was licensed at the Southern German licensing in Munich-Riem and in Verden his son Con Amore was given a green light for breeding and received a premium but was only able to breed for one brief season. In 2006, Conteur's son Curator became the Reserve Champion Stallion of the licensing in Verden and was sold for 300,000 Euros. Four other sons were also licensed. All in all, eight sons have been licensed so far and sold for an average price of 120,000 Euros. His offspring are snatched up at auctions, e.g. his daughter Chirara was the most expensive horse at the CHIO Auction in Aachen, selling to England for 240,000 Euros. Conteur's sire, Contender is the founder of an international line of quality showjumping champions. The depth of Contender's quality descends from the absolute performance influence of the legendary Calypso II. The linebreeding to Ramiro in the damline adds insurance for the highest quality performance capability, as does the Thoroughbred sire Tin Rod xx in the third generation.
