CHAMPIAAN Northern Group Show 2008

CHAMPIAAN Northern Group Show 2008

CHAMPIAAN is an exceptional horse that we had the privilege to purchase as a Colt, but has now been gelded. He was bred by Paul and Frances Atkinson and Nadia Howard-Price at Cullinghurst Stud in Norfolk. He is an impressive individual, with a wonderful pedigree and has the strength of type and conformation as well as an exceptional temperament.

The sire of CHAMPIAAN is the Multi-International Champion PSADISHO IBN ESSTASHAN, whose sire ESSTASHAN (multi-champion) is full brother to the Triple Crown Winner, the fabulous ESSTEEMA.

ESSTEEMA is by the Illustrious World, Nations Cup & European Champion ESSTEEM, (son of the U.S. National Champion stallion FAME V.F) PSADISHO’s dam is the fabulous, Top International Champion mare, PSAYADA BINT PSYCHE, one of the most beautiful daughters of the renowned PADRON’S PSYCHE. PSAYADA is out of the gorgeous Polish bred, Michalow mare, ZANETA, who was imported to the UK some years ago.

CHAMPIAAN’s dam, CHRAPKA was also imported from the Michalow Polish State Stud and she won several European Qualifying Championships before settling down to be a broodmare-supreme. She stems from the same source as Michalow’s illustrious family of EMIGRACJA, world famous for their quality. The reigning US National Champion Mare, EL DORADA – and countless other World Class show horses, are from the same female line.

The other horses in CHAMPIAAN’s pedigree are too numerous to name individually but together they represent the cream of top, contemporary, international pedigrees. CHAMPIAAN has to be considered as having a fantastic future ahead of him. He has already lived up to his name – champion colt evert time shown 2007 and qualified for the European Championships. We are now hoping that CHAMPIAAN will make an excellent ridden gelding. He has been doing some local dressage to get him ready for the show ring. He had his ridden debut at North Staffs Spring Show, ridden by Sarah Monkman, and he did not disappoint with a first place. He will have a very limited show season this season, but watch out for him in 2014.
