Comfort became the 2015 acclaimed second reserve champion of the OS licensing in Vechta. He not only convinced the inspection committee, but also the spectators. He always got along very well with the distances of the free jumping series and performed outstandingly on all three days of the licensing.
His sire, Christian, debuted at seven years old at advanced level, achieving International success and now continues his unblemished career under Jamie Gornell in the UK. In 2012 he achived the highest scores in the Bundeschampionat finals for six year old jumpers. Comfort was the second son of Christian to be licensed, and also full brother to the four year old stallion Charlie Weasley, who proved popular with spectators at the 2019 Bockmann Stallion Show where he was ridden by top German Event Rider Sandra Auffarth.
Branduardi’s stunningly compact frame gives him the ability to move expressively and fluently with three exceptional paces. His trainability is highlighted by his outstanding temperament, which has stood out throughout his entire career. As a young horse he started training with Kathrin Meyer Zu Strohen and at only 5 years old qualified for the 2011 World Breeding Championships in Verden.
He was later purchased by Caunton Manor Stud to continue his competitive career in the UK, where he eventually was based at Carl Hesters yard with Amy Woodhead. Also at the time, the residence of his half brother Barolo, who achieved 70% scores at Grand Prix with Charlotte DuJardin. Branduardi moved up the small tour levels successfully with Amy, where he achieved scores over 70% at Prix St Georges and Inter I, also competing Internationally. He is continuing his career and working towards Grand Prix.
