An extensive and perfect pedigree of accomplished sires: Baloubet du Rouet, Carthago, Coriander, Schampus xx, Ronald, Moltke and Ramzes. Baloubet du Rouet and Carthago both jumped at the Olympic Games, as did many of their offspring. The dam line is the world-famous Holsteiner line 104a. This line begins with Ramzes-daughter Retina, who in her time was one of the best Grand Prix show jumpers in the world winning the Derby of Hamburg at the age of seven! In breeding she dominates with her great genes. Brantzau's great-granddam already gave birth to three 1.40m and 1.50m show jumpers. Behind the great-granddam we find the mare Odetta - dam of the approved stallion Landetto and granddam to the top sire Corland. From this line also come stallions like Landego, Caretano and Contendro I.
Brantzau is a modern sport horse with blood, height and long lines. He has a great gallop and jumps with much scope, push-off and quick reflexes. He finished third at the stallion selection of the Selle Franqais studbook in France and is also approved by the Holsteiner and Hannoverian. At both stallion shows he impressed with his jumping skills and received many compliments by both the press and judges.
At a young age, Brantzau has already been approved for several studbooks. Last year Brantzau gained some excellent notes in the performance test in Schlieckau. For jumping, Brantzau was given an average score of 8.30 points.
In 2016 Brantzau VDL and rider Thea Jelcic won a qualifier for the Bundeschampionat in Germany with a score of 8.5 for jumping.
