Bonfire is a first-rate product of the very best Holstein performance gene mix.
Quintero Z, his sire, is one of the best Holstein jumping stallions of recent times. He’s captivated spectators in World Cups, Nations Cups, the Global Champions Tour and many Grand Prix classes with his rider Rolf Göran Bengtsson. He is undoubtedly making a significant contribution to breeding. Quintero Z’s pedigree combines the valuable genes of Quidam de Revel, Caletto II, Calando I, Farnese and Ladykiller xx – all of them top sport horse producers. His sire Quantum has both Quidam de Revel and Cor de la Bryère in his bloodline, so he has the genes of two Selle Francais stallions and is still a breeding stallion in France. An unprecedented number of his offspring are competition horses: Breitling LS la Silla (Beezie Madden), Quantas (Jörg Naeve), Valuta S (Khaled Abdulaziz Al Eid), Quibell (Henrik von Eckermann), Quintana Roo (Johannes Ehning), Quin Air (Mario Stevens).
Bonfire’s dam Vaikiki is an amateur show jumping horse. Her sire Con Air won Grand Prixs with Otto Becker and was on the winning Nations Cup final team in Madrid before moving to Jose Larocca’s yard and competing at the World Equestrian Games in Kentucky in 2010. Con Air has produced many Holstein offspring, some of the successful ones being Coach (Beezie Madden), Cony (Jörg Naeve), Conrad (Gregory Wathelet) and Conisha van der Helle (Niels Bruynseels).
His pedigree also has the interesting twist of Silvester by Silbersee – sire and grand sire to many top international horses.
Six year old Bonfire is a fantastic jumper that has inherited many of his sire’s excellent performance genes. The benefits of having those genes are obvious over jumps, which he clears with ease and focus. His excellent temperament also deserves a mention because he’s a perfect gentleman with a very positive attitude and always eager to do his very best for the rider. All these qualities, plus his dynamic way of moving and ridability make him the perfect partner for any ambitious rider.
Six year old Bonfire has extensive competition experience and he’s been placed in young horse classes up to 1.30m. Now he’s ready for youngster tours.
Bonfire will light the fire in your heart.
