16.2hh Black Australian Warmblood
Sire: Ludendorf Dam: Bibaringa Touchstone

Christadorf is the foundation mare for Wimborne Park Stud. She was bred by Tracey and Geoff Charlwood of Sutton Forest before being purchased as a 3 year old by Wimborne Park Stud.

Christadorf had a very successful show career winning many Champion Warmblood classes both led and ridden, including placing at both Sydney and Canberra Royal shows. Christadorf was a mare that people would stop and look at wherever she went. She is a big, well conformed mare with beautiful suspended movement especially suitable for passage and piaffe.

Christa then retired to be our foundation broodmare and has produced 6 quality progeny. All of her fillies and Remembrance Day have been retained by the stud for future breeding purposes. This year will see the third generation of Christa€™s progeny being born.

Christadorf passed away on 13th May 2009 after luxating her pastern whilst in the paddock. She is greatly missed and the paddocks look very empty without her. She has been such a wonderful asset to our stud and such a great friend to me.

Christadorf is a 7/8€™s sister to Suzy Cogar€™s beautiful stallion, Apptrak Talisman.

Christadorf is by Ludendorf out of a Wesuw mare. Ludendorf, who stood at 17.2hh, re wrote the history books by becoming an advanced eventer as well as a Grand Prix dressage horse. He has sired countless Grand Prix showjumpers and dressage horses and Advanced eventers, many of which have sold overseas for top prices He has become the foundation sire for many warmblood horses in Australia with his progeny being highly sort after and regarded as valuable breeding stock.
Wesuw is a trakhener stallion who was imported into Australia in the early 70€™s. Wesuw passed is stallion performance test in Germany at 3 years old. Many of his progeny excelled in dressage, showjumping and led classes. Wesuw himself excelled in led classes gaining supreme at Melbourne and Sydney Royal Shows. His progeny won most successful progeny overall of any sire at 1987 Warmblood Gala Day and Futurity Show.
