Hans-Dieter Dreher's former top horse, Colore (Contender x Lord) moves to France. The sire was produced at an international level by Beat Mandli. Later 'Hansi' took over the reins.
The pair won the CSIO5* Nations Cup of Spruce Meadows and the Grand Prix in Maastricht. Further they claimed international victories in Geneva, Madrid, Stuttgart, Doha, London, etc.
The 18-year-old Colore has been approved for the SF-studbook, about two years ago. Now Colore will focus on his breeding duties at the Haras du Géry. The French Haras recently also acquired another former 1.60m horse, Quartz Rouge (Ultimo van Ter Moude x Qredo de Paulstra), who jumped at the highest level with Jérome Hurel and Philippe Rozier.
