Condios (Coriano x Landgraf I), the 7-year-old Holsteiner stallion
owned by Morningside Stud, has been approved as a sire by the Australian
Association (AWHA) and the New Zealand Warmblood Horse Breeders Association.
The AWHA is a full member of the World Breeding Federation for Sport
Horses. Condios (Coriano x Landgraf I) is now approved by seven studbooks
in six countries.
Showjumping Association of Ireland (SJAI) reports that, as of 2
August 2002, Condios has 305 SJAI points. With 201 points required
for Grade A status, Condios is one of the youngest Irish-owned horses
ever to reach Grade A in Ireland and the youngest to achieve Grade
A International status in two countries (Ireland and Denmark).

5th (out of 39 starters)
in a second 1.40 m. class; and 8th (out of 47 starters) in a 1.45

international classes came from
