Constable is by the sensational eventing stallion Contenda who until recently was being ridden by Shane Rose at two-star eventing level. There are some absolutely sensational photos of Shane and Contenda jumping on the Net. Contenda carries the fantastic jumping blood of Contender from Germany. Contenda also carries the TB blood of Bolero. Indeed the Bolero bloodline in Germany is today considered a dressage dynasty. At the end of 2016 Wimborne Constable won the 1* Wallaby Hill Three Day Event and since then has gone on to have a number of placings in 2* in 2017 and qualify for 3*. Constable is out of the mare Wimborne Paint it Black who in turn is by Gribaldi. Gribaldi is famous for siring many of the Dutch Grand Prix dressage horses including Totilas. Totilas is considered by many to be the best dressage horse the world has ever seen to date. Totilas sold to Germany for a rumoured $A22million. Constable started his eventing career with Heath Ryan in the saddle and is now three years into competition. Constable has been a standout success, winning most of his starts and progressing rapidly to 2* eventing, the equivalent of Prix St George in dressage. Constable wins the dressage, is very brave and honest cross-country and does seems to have the most awesome ability to jump and simultaneously be super careful. It is still early days, however, Constable is giving off all the signs of being good for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. Very exciting.
