Konfetti

The first foal out of our top scoring Kostolany daughter Kontrapunkt, Konfetti was the only purebred 1998 offspring by Peron, the bay Mahagoni son who won a team bronze medal for the USA at the 1996 Olympics at Atlanta. At the time ridden by Michelle Gibson, Peron was the best horse on the American dressage team and just barely missed an individual medal, finishing fifth.

  Peron

This incredible horse took two more riders to the top. After Ann-Kathrin Ehlen had become a shooting star in Germany, Peron and his new rider Francesca Camessa had qualified for the European Championships with the Swiss team. On the way there, a minor bruise required a preventive antibiotic injection, Peron suffered an anaphylactic reaction and died, leaving only one full foal crop in Germany, to be born in 2000, and only 5 purebred daughters in North America, among them only one out of a Kostolany daughter, Konfetti.

A carbon copy of her famous sire, Konfetti received high marks at her foal inspection and was started under saddle in 2001/2002. 

In 2008, she had her first foal, the bay colt Checkmate by Contucci. Konfetti was accepted into the Main Stud Book of the American Hanoverian Association and her son Checkmate was registered and branded Hanoverian during his inspection, impressing judges and spectators alike with his powerful, uphill movement. Congratlations to breeders Lisa and Chris Tompkins from Arlington, WA.
