About Comme il faut

He is one of the best jumping stallions worldwide - and we are very proud to be able to offer our breeders this top sire for their mares. Comme il faut stands for an almost epoch-making performance statement - as far as his own pedigree, his sporting successes reaching up to European team silver and his grandiose heredity are concerned.

In 2007 Comme il faut was licensed in Münster-Handorf. One year later he passed his stallion performance test at the same place as jumping champion. In 2010, under Franz-Josef "Peppi" Dahlmann, he won silver at the World Championships for five-year-old show jumpers in Lanaken/BEL. In the following year he won silver at the Bundeschampionat (6 yo.). In 2013, Comme il faut took off internationally under Marcus Ehning. In addition to team silver at the 2019 European Championships in Rotterdam/NED, the pair won the Grand Prix in Madrid/ESP, Vienna/AUT, Brussels/BEL and Paderborn, the Nations Cup Final in Barcelona/ESP as well as top placings in the Grand Prix in Dortmund, Rotterdam/NED and Rome/ITA. In 2021, Comme il faut was ceremoniously retired from the sport at the European Championships in Riesenbeck.

Comme il faut sired over 50 licensed sons. Among his offspring are already numerous 1.60 metre show jumpers, such as Checker/Christian Kukuk, Cape Coral/Francesca Ciriesi/ITA, Faut-Il des 7 Vallons/Gregory Wathelet/BEL, Comme-Laude W/Bart Bles/NED, Chardonnay/Robert Blanchette/IRL, Chic Chic/Darragh Kenny/IRL, Cappuccino/Molly Ashe Cawley/USA, Caramba/Richard Vogel, Comtess/Santiago Lambre/BRA and the European Championship participant Cuma/Katharina Rhomberg/AUT. Among others, the show-jumping World Champion and National Champion Chao Lee/Katrin Eckermann is waiting in the starting blocks.

More about Comme il faut

Comme il faut was bred by the European Team Champion and stamp stallion Cornet Obolensky, who is stationed here. His mother Ratina Z also made sporting history, as she carried two riders to Olympic honours: Piet Raymakers/NED to individual silver and team gold in Barcelona/ESP in 1992 and Ludger Beerbaum to team gold in Atlanta/USA in 1996. The Ramiro daughter was also World Champion (team gold in 1994 in The Hague/NED), World Cup winner (1993 in Gothenburg/SWE), European Champion (individual and team gold in 1997 in Mannheim) and Aachen winner (1996). Besides Comme il faut, Ratina's sons Crown Z (by Carthago)/Judy-Ann Melchior/BEL and Christian Ahlmann, Rex Z (by Rebel Z I)/Jos Lansink/BEL and Treasure Z (by Dollar de la Pierre)/Mohamed Sadek/EGY were also licensed. The daughter Calipa Z (by Cor de la Bryère) produced the licensed stallions Hans Anders Z (by Acord II), Rabiat Z (by Rebel II Z), Sterrehof's Cayetano Z/Julia Houtzager- Kayser/AUT and Chicago Z (both by Caretano), who competed at the 2016 Olympic Games with Bruno Passaro/ARG.

Ratina Z is a full sister to the licensed stallions Rebel I Z, Rebel II Z and Rebel III Z and a half sister to the licensed stallion Rock Z (by Rebel I Z). Full sister Renommee Z competed internationally up to 1.60 m under Ricardo Kierkegaard/ARG and produced the stallions Amiro Z (by Amigo Toss xx) and Passe Partout Z (by Prince de Revel). From further daughters of the granddam Argentina Z the stallions Chamir Z (by Chellano Z), Amateur Z (by Atlantus Z), Freedom Z (by Furioso II) and Passe Partout Z (by Prince de Revel) were born.

The third dam, Heureka Z, also competed in courses up to 1.60 metres and produced the licensed stallions Goliath Z (by Graf Gotthard Z) and Ahorn Z (by Almé).

Via Ramiro Z, Almé Z and Ganeff in the further generations, the dam line refers to the Holstein line 8145, from which the stallions Amiro Z, Carpe Diem Z, Cheurano Z, Corner Z, Courtello Z, Faust Z and Freedom Z also originate.
