Friesian Sporthorses with breeding of this calibur are few and far between, and this colt is simply outstanding! A perfect example of how the addition of proven sport bloodlines can truly compliment the Friesian horse. Coby is a leggy, tall, solid jet black colt. He has a beautiful head and neck, and a fantastic shoulder. He is extremely friendly and loves attention. And what a mover! Lots of knee and suspension, and a beautiful uphill canter.
Coby's sire, Holsteiner stallion Cor Noir (by Cor de la Bryere) was a tall, 17.2hh stallion with impressive elevation, scope and elasticity in his movement. He offered an elite caliber of athleticism to easily excel in either jumping or dressage. He captivated all who saw him with undeniable presence and confident attitude. As a young stallion he was shown through Prix St. George with high scores and offered the FEI movements willingly and with great ease. He was ultimately trained through the Grand Prix level. His piaffe and passage were of exceptional quality. Cor Noir was 3/4 brother to Chacamo, who helped the German team to a Gold Medal finish at the 2000 Sydney Olympics and ranked 9th in the WBFSH year 2000 standings for results in international dressage competition.
Coby's dam, Maggie, is a lovely, 2004 stam 50, premium full papered mare with a motherline of nine consecutive generations of ster or better behind her. Mares from this line are highly sought after, as it has produced more approved stallions than any other mare line. Maggie's great grand dam is a full sister to one of the most popular Friesian stallions in both North America and Europe, Anton 343. Her sire Pilgrim 336, was ridden in the Friesian dressage performance group, Featherdance until the ripe age age of 20. Pilgrim's temperament was so outstanding that, despite being a stallion, he was trusted to give riding lessons to beginners. Maggie has certainly inherited her sire's temperament, and has passed it on again to Cobain.
