Stallions

Casall

of Caretino — Lavall I

Life number: DE321210208399 / Strain: 00890
Size: 168 cm / Colour: Braun / Date of birth: 13.04.1999
Breeder: Thomann Wilfried / Location: Drelsdorf
Owner: Holsteiner Verband Hengsthaltungs GmbH / Location: Elmshorn
WFFS Status: negative

Casall is the Holsteiner breed’s poster boy and high-achiever, at stud and in sport.

Because Casall had already stood out at the stallion grading preselection, the Holsteiner Verband purchased him from the owner syndicate Hennings and Mehrens.

Under Rolf-Göran Bengtsson, Casall was one of the highest-achieving horses on the international show jumping circuit. During the past years, he reached the top 25 at all major championships, the 2012 London Olympics, the 2013 Herning Europeans, and the 2014 Caen World Equestrian Games.

Considerations for breeding

The results achieved by Casall offspring speak for themselves. But like any successful breeding stallion, he is running the risk to be used for commercial purposes rather than selective breeding. Generally, Casall should be bred to leggy mares influenced by TB genes, as he comes from a performance dam line frequently characterized by less frame but great depth of body. As this is generally considered a Raimond inheritance, line-breeding to this stallion is not advisable.

Cassini II

of Capitol I — Caletto II

Life number: DE321210202094 / Strain: 03389
Size: 173 cm / Colour: Schimmel / Date of birth: 21.03.1994
Breeder: Claussen J. Hermann / Location: Neuenkirchen
Owner: Holsteiner Verband Hengsthaltungs GmbH / Location: Elmshorn
WFFS Status: negative

Cassini II by Capitol I presented himself at his 1996 stallion grading slightly more typey than his full brother. Unfortunately, he could not be shown in competition due to a tendon injury, but completed stallion performance testing at Radegast with way above average results, finishing 3rd at 138 jumping index points. Moreover, he earned high marks for character and temperament.  

His sire Capitol I topped the WBFSH show jumping sire ranking in 2000 and 2000, having been on second position in 1999. Though his sons Cassini I/Bo Kristoffersen/DEN and Franke Sloothaak, Carthago Z/Jos Lansink/BEL, C-Indoctro/ Ulrich Kirchhoff, Carolus I/Stefan Lauber/SUI and Hans-Peter Konle, Dobel’s Cento/Otto Becker, VDL Cardento/Peter Eriksson/SWE, Calato/Herbert Blöcker and Jennifer Foghd Pedersen/DEN, he is still a major force, years after his death.

 Wisma, dam to Cassini I and II (as well as to Clarimo), carries interesting bloodlines and is by top sire Caletto II. Her produce includes a full sister to the above mentioned stallions, which in her turn produced the licensed stallion Lovari by Lasino I. Another Wisma daughter, Mira by Lansing, distinguished herself by producing a licensed stallion, as well; Her first son, Cassaro by Coronado, was stallion graded at Neumünster in 2004. Another notable representative of mare family 3389 is USA-licensed Oskar by Othello. He used to be a very successful show jumper. His 1996 achievements include winning the Queen Elizabeth II Cup in Spruce Meadows.

 Cassini II offspring display modern type and great jumping potential. Having made a name for himself for his very successful sport horse offspring, he still holds 38th position in the worldwide WBFSH sire ranking. His currently most successful son, C Hunter, is shown in jumping classes through 1.60m by US rider Lucas Porter.

In 2011, Cassini II died from an injury caused by accident in France.

Catch

of Colman — Calido I

Life number: DE421000038513 / Strain: 00890
Size: 173 cm / Colour: Schimmel / Date of birth: 05.05.2013
Breeder: Loeding-Hasenkamp Hans-P. / Location: Quarnstedt
Owner: Holsteiner Verband Hengsthaltungs GmbH / Location: Elmshorn
WFFS Status: negative

Colman by Carthago presented a young grey boasting exceptional quality and very good movement at the 2015 Neumünster stallion grading.

Catch had stood out for his excellent free jumping already during the pre-selection. Catch has the clear rectangular frame so important for a sire. His face and bright eyes reflect his intelligence and even temper. His neck is big and ties nicely into the body, with long and well-defined withers well connected to a very good back and croup structure. He has very correct legs and perfectly shaped hooves of suitable size. His very regular movement results from his hindquarters’ excellent ability to carry weight, allowing for a particularly powerful canter.

Considerations for breeding

Catch should be able to improve in terms of frame and lines. Moreover, he is expected to pass on his very good rideability, his intelligence and his great carefulness over the jump.

Clarimo

of Clearway — Caletto II

Life number: DE421000278903 / Strain: 03389
Size: 172 cm / Colour: Schimmel / Date of birth: 10.06.2003
Breeder: Claussen Johann Hermann / Location: Neuenkirchen
Owner: Holsteiner Verband Hengsthaltungs GmbH / Location: Elmshorn
WFFS Status: negative

Clarimo is a first-crop Clearway offspring stallion-graded at Neumünster in November 2005.

The stallion clearly influenced by his TB ancestors impressively demonstrated his outstanding canter and his thrilling free jumping ability during his first appearances. His jumping quality is not down to random luck as Clarimo’s bloodline combines the outstanding performance genes of the stallions Capitol I and Caletto II with those of Wisma and Wodka. Both mares have produced several outstanding jumpers during their career at stud. The produce of Lord daughter Wodka includes the licensed stallions Clearway, Conway I and II and Arturo, as well as Carassina, winner of the German Jumping Derby under Thomas Kleis in 2009.

Considerations for breeding

Clarimo offspring stand out for blood, performance attitude, and predominantly elegant type. He should only be bred to mares known to pass on good natural rideability as well as correct front legs and sound hooves.

Clearway

of Capitol I — Lord

Life number: DE321210218393 / Strain: 01916
Size: 169 cm / Colour: Schimmel / Date of birth: 22.05.1993
Breeder: Schoof Otto Boje / Location: Hedwigenkoog
Owner: Holsteiner Verband Hengsthaltungs GmbH / Location: Elmshorn
WFFS Status: negative

Clearway is still considered one of the Holsteiner stud book’s top sires after his death, as the valuable Capitol son excelled in sport and at stud.

His sire Capitol I topped the WBFSH show jumping sire ranking in 2000 and 2000, having been on second position in 1999. Though his sons Cassini I/Bo Kristoffersen/DEN and Franke Sloothaak, Carthago Z/Jos Lansink/BEL, C-Indoctro/ Ulrich Kirchhoff, Carolus I/Stefan Lauber/SUI and Hans-Peter Konle, Dobel’s Cento/Otto Becker, VDL Cardento/Peter Eriksson/SWE, Calato/Herbert Blöcker and Jennifer Foghd Pedersen/DEN, he is still a major force, years after his death.

His dam, state premium mare Wodka from stem 1916, boasts an impressive ancestry and is one of the Holsteiner studbook’s most distinguished mares. Her offspring includes the licensed stallions Conway I and II, by Caretino. Another Wodka son by Athlet, Arturo, was sold to the USA as a sport horse and breeding stallion. Her daughters Chika’s Way by Caretino and Carassina by Concerto II were high-profile top-level jumpers placing to 1.60m. Carassina was the celebrated winner of the 2009 Hamburg Jumping Derby with Thomas Kleis and is dam to United Way, a highly regarded young breeding stallion. Wodka’s exceptional potential is shaped by her maternal bloodline through the stallions Lord, Ramiro and Albrant, all of them high achievers. Lord used to be an international level eventer with Herbert Blöcker prior to becoming one of the Holsteiner studbook’s most influential sires. Ramiro was an exceptional stallion, too, as a jumper with Fritz Ligges same as a sire. Clearway’s fourth generation sire in the tail female line, Albrant, has made eventing history with Herbert Blöcker, demonstrating his willingness to perform and his soundness in many big international tests, in particular the 1973 Kiev Europeans and the 1976 Montreal Olympics. 

Clearway demonstrated his own performance in young horse jumping classes already at a young age and went on to prove his exceptional quality as a jumper by competing at international level under the saddle of Lars Bak Andersen placing in the Neumunster and Braunschweig grands Prix.

He produces modern foals with great movement. As yet, 12 Clearway sons have been licensed for breeding, like for example Clarimo, a stallion with international results to 1.60m level with Rolf-Göran Bengtsson. In addition to his licensed sons, his sport horse offspring are attracting more and more attention. Glock’s Cognac Champblanc, Claire Z, Clearwater and Carella are indicative of their sire Clearway’s awesome inheritance.

Crack

of Cornet Obolensky — Candillo

Life number: DE421000412115 / Strain: 01020
Size: 170 cm / Colour: Schimmel / Date of birth: 22.05.2015
Breeder: Campos Cria de Caballos / Location: Pepino
Owner: Holsteiner Verband Hengsthaltungs GmbH / Location: Elmshorn
WFFS Status: negative

The big-framed grey stallion Crack stands out for his type and appearance. He embodies modern Holsteiner breed type; his excellent topline, with a light and well-proportioned neck blending into an ideal shoulder, and perfectly conformed withers and back deserves special mention.

Crack owes his elegant Arabian touch to Amurath, a stallion he carries several times through Cornet Obolensky, Capitol and Gotthard. Crack consistently demonstrated his jumping quality at the preselection and inspection sites – very scopey and with a very good bascule, he comes across as ambitious, with a can-do attitude and a particularly striking hind leg technique.

Considerations for breeding

With the Cornet Obolensky blood as well as Crack’s damline standing for very careful, high-quality jumping, this young stallion should be able to pass on his jumping quality. Due to his good type and modern structure he should be well able to improve mares lacking in this department.

Dinken

of Diarado — Cassini I

Life number: DE421000707310 / Strain: 02294
Size: 167 cm / Colour: Braun / Date of birth: 06.04.2010
Breeder: Stal Molenaers B.V.B.A. / Location: Kinrooi
Owner: Holsteiner Verband Hengsthaltungs GmbH / Location: Elmshorn
WFFS Status: negative

The 2012 premium stallion was described as “probably best Diarado son” by breeding director Dr. Nissen:

“He embodied perfect type and great athleticism when presented at Neumünster. Already his expression as a very modern young stallion was in a class of its own. The stallion has ideal frame and a perfectly constructed top line with a strong back and very good proportions. His legs are very correct and in good proportion to his body. His basic gaits are excellent throughout and emphasize the energy of this athlete. His demonstrates his quality in particular over the jumps. This Diarado son can be rated an exceptional talent, as well.”

Considerations for breeding
From the breeder’s point of view, Dinken’s outstanding performance attitude and ambition are of particular importance, as well as his exceptional jumping aptitude with top-class ability, carefulness, and jumping technique. The medium-framed stallion stands 1.68m at the withers, with a well proportioned, compact top-line and is best bred to leggy, big-framed mares.

Goldball

of Goldberg — Sir Donnerhall I

Life number: DE433332209815
Size: 172 cm / Colour: DkBraun / Date of birth: 16.05.2015
Breeder: Montkowski Dr. Alexandra / Location: Edewecht
Owner: Holsteiner Verband Hengsthaltungs GmbH / Location: Elmshorn
WFFS Status: negative

Stallion in breeding trial

Particularly impressive about the dark bay stallion standing 170cm at the withers are his big, calm eye, his excellent long lines and his correct legs.

He displays big movement with good rhythm, in hand as well as under the rider, always very elastic and with an up-hill tendency.

In addition to their first priority – the jumping stallions – the Holsteiner Verband stallion keeping GmbH is also striving to acquire high carat dressage stallions. When looking for a dressage aspirant with a genetic background well suited for Holsteiner breeding, Goldball, a Goldberg son owned by the Paul Schockemöhle horse keeping GmbH caught their attention. In terms of type, movement, and bloodline, the stallion already approved for the Mecklenburg and Oldenburg studbooks has many qualities required for a dressage horse sire in the Holsteiner breeding programme. In the end, the Holsteiner Verband stallion keeping took the opportunity to purchase a 50 per cent share in the stallion. According to the agreement, Elmshorn is standing and training the stallion.

Even though Goldball was still in the midst of his physical development in March 2018, his great structure clearly influenced by TB genes was obvious even at that time.

Considerations for breeding

Goldball provides an interesting option for breeders with dressage ambitions. Due to his modern conformation he can be used to improve with a view to size, long lines, and long legs. His exceptional abilities as to rideability and basic gait make room for new breeding decisions.

Lasino

Color: dark bay
Born: 1991
Height: 179cm
Approved for: Holstein

The stallion Lasino is a representative of the Holsteiner studbook’s coveted L line and his pedigree reads like a Who’s Who in show jumping. By Landgraf and with Capitol I, Lord, and Roman on the dam’s side, his pedigree has the Holsteiner studbook’s most important jumper sires closely knit together. As Lasino carries the Ladykiller TB performance genes through Landgraf and Lord as well as Capitol I and Ramzes, he is of great interest for the Holsteiner breeding programme, even more so seeing that he carries no Cor de la Bryère blood.

His stallion performance test jumping index was 130 points. He was then shown in competition, at first by Bo Kristoffersen, then by Jörg Kreutzmann, who successfully competed him at international level in Dortmund, Neumunster and Aarhus.

Line 2543 is a quite small mare family in comparison, but very successful. The dam line bred by the Thiedemann family goes back to the foundation mare Optik by Fanal and has produced many successful horses, including for example the licensed stallions Boritas, Lux Z and Coriando. Lasino’s dam, Arina by Capitol I, produced the licensed sons Limoncello I and II, by Lorentin. Another produce of the Thiedemann family’s line 2543 is the mare Loreana, a successful international level show jumper under the saddle of Achaz von Buchwaldt and later Lars Nieberg.

Lasino attracted attention in particular for his FEI show jumping offspring. With Alois Pollmann-Schweckhorst, his son Lord Luis was a member of the Nations Cup winning German team in La Baule and came 2nd in the first leg of the Global Champions Tour in Doha/Qatar which comes with big price money. Another successful offspring is Le Beau: At his first international championship, the Mannheim Europeans, Le Beau took 13th place in the overall standings under his rider Stein Endresen. With two clear rounds in the Nations Cup he was instrumental in securing the Hong Kong qualification for the Norwegian team. With Stein Endresen, he reached the individual top 25 final at the Hong Kong Olympics, placing 16th in the overall standings. In 2009, the pair competed at the Windsor Europeans and placed in many shows with big prize money.

Leconte was no less successful. Under Marcus Ehning, he took home many prestigious placings and won among other achievements the Bordeaux world cup.

Of his younger offspring, Easy Going attracted particular attention in Schleswig-Holstein with Inga Czwalina. At 8 years old she achieved 45 wins and placings to S*** already. In 2012, Easy Going was successfully shown at international level by Ruben Romp.

Million Dollar BWP

of Plot Blue — Vigo d’Arsouilles

Life number: BEL002W00301601
Size: 171 cm / Colour: Braun / Date of birth: 22.05.2012
Breeder: de Winter Perry / Location: Haasdonk
Owner: Holsteiner Verband Hengsthaltungs GmbH / Location: Elmshorn
WFFS Status: negative

Stallion in breeding trial

With first information about a tremendously jumping 3-year-old stallion from the dam line of Quirly Chin coming in from Belgium in spring 2015, the persons in charge were immediately interested when the Holsteiner Verband was offered this 3-year-old stallion by Plot Blue – Vigo d’Arsouilles – Cento from the success dam line bred by Joris von Brabander.

But wouldn’t a produce of these three stallions be too heavy for breeding modern high-performance horses? Inspecting the stallion at his breeder’s stable answered many questions. The stallion displaying the colourful markings of his sire Plot Blue and a still youthful appearance was anything but heavy. His movement was highly interesting, with an outstandingly regular, very ground-covering walk, a trot with good knee action, and a very efficient canter, powerful and with excellent carriage from behind. The free jumping proved more than convincing, very much to the purpose and very controlled, but on the same hand extremely careful, with a good bascule, an excellent, bouncy pushoff and the ability to be expected from his bloodline.

Considerations for breeding
Million Dollar provides an interesting outcross option – only Cento by Capitol and Chin Chin in the 5th generation carry Holsteiner blood. Given the high concentration of top jumping genes, the stallion is expected to breed with great reliability. Mares known as reliable producers of Holsteiner type and Holsteiner way of going should be bred to this outcross stallion, preferably.

Quantum

Color: dark bay
Born: 1994
Height: 169 cm ~ 16.2.½ hands

Then with a still very youthful appearance, Quantum won second reserve champion at the 1996 stallion licensing. Already at that time he stood out for his excellent performance type, balanced conformation and light-footed movement.

Quantum is by French-bred Quidam de Revel. Having taken team bronze and individual fourth at the Barcelona Olympics, Quidam de Revel was sold to Denmark for an incredible amount and was successfully shown at international level by Thomas Velin. He produced a great many top level show jumping offspring and is among the world’s top sires.

 Quantum’s dam Ulla by Cor de la Bryère comes from mare family 18b1, which has produced many important sport horses and breeding stock for the Holsteiner stud book. Ulla’s own produce also includes the stallion Serano. Her dam Ella is also dam to the stallion Constant by Cor de la Bryère. A full sister to Ulla, Palisa, produced Queen Liesa, also by Quidam de Revel, a mare boasting wins and placings at London, Nantes, and Donaueschingen with Felix Haßmann. Quantum’s mare family, stem 18b1, has always been respected for producing performance stallions, with Cagliostro by Calando I, Roman by Ramzes and Farn by Fax I as well as Ronald by Ramiro tracing back to this important family.

Having stood for one season only in 1997, Quantum was put to stud again in 2001 following his offspring’s very positive performance. Two sons from his first crop were presented for stallion grading and put up an excellent free jumping performance, one of them the stallion Quintero, who went on to place at international 1.60m level with Rolf-Göran Bengtsson and sire highly successful offspring in his turn, as well. Other offspring like Silvertras with Jur Vrieling, Quality Time TN with Jeroen Dubbeldam/Charlie Jacobs (USA), AD Quantina with Mathilda Karlsson, Fixdesign Chopin with Filippo Marco Bologni (ITA) and T-Quinta with Norbert Ell (POR) performed convincingly all along the line at international top level.

Unlimited

of Uriko — Casall

Life number: DE421000045414 / Strain: 02543
Size: 176 cm / Colour: Braun / Date of birth: 14.03.2014
Breeder: Thiedemann Klaus / Location: Oesterwurth
Owner: Holsteiner Verband Hengsthaltungs GmbH / Location: Elmshorn
WFFS Status: negative

Unlimited displays outstanding rideability and movement under saddle, but excels as a jumper. Despite his height, he is very agile and capable, very careful, with very good technique and tremendous scope.

Every once in a while a breeder’s skill and experience along with some good fortune will result in a young horse best described as “special“. Bloodline, overall structure, movement as well as special charisma combine in these so rarely found youngsters which justify the label “complete“. The 2016 champion stallion, Unlimited by Uriko, is one of these near perfect horses. Standing 172 cm at the withers, the bay has got it all: excellent structure, correct legs and that special blood horse charisma.

Considerations for breeding

This young stallion is expected to breed true, in the sense that he should be able to pass on his own, confirmed quality. His particular quality for breeding is due to his many assets: outstanding type, movement, aptitude for jumping, excellent rideability and balance, and, particularly valuable, a strong character. Considering the reliability of his dam line, stem 2543, a stallion as typey as Unlimited should be well able to leave his mark as a sire.

United Way

of Uriko — Concerto II

Life number: DE421000408615 / Strain: 01916
Size: 169 cm / Colour: Braun / Date of birth: 29.04.2015
Breeder: Holsteiner Verband / Location: Elmshorn
Owner: Holsteiner Verband Hengsthaltungs GmbH / Location: Elmshorn
WFFS Status: negative

United Way’s breeding combines a unique constellation of successful mares and stallions which have distinguished themselves at stud and in sport.

Mares of distinction have always had a particular impact on the breed, mares like for example Deka or Tabelle in Holstein, Tanagra and Dirka in France or Qerly Chin and Opaline des Pins in Belgium. Another mare in this category in the more recent history of the Holsteiner breed is Wodka, bred by Otto Boje Schoof, Hedwigenkoog, and second dam to United Way. A very noble and expressive Lord daughter, she inherited her sire’s excellent temperament and outer appearance.

The young stallion is typey and modern with an expressively masculine face and big, bright eyes reflecting his wonderful disposition. His neck’s conformation is very good, as is his perfectly conformed back. The Uriko son has excellent movement.

Displaying three equally powerful, ground-covering, and supple basic gaits, his canter is particularly remarkable. Consistent with his bloodline, he jumps with outstanding technique, scope, and ability.

Considerations for breeding
United Way has a highly distinguished bloodline in terms of jumping quality and willingness to perform. The reliability for passing on high-quality jumping genes is supported by his sire Uriko, his dam Carassina, and his second dam Wodka’s performance offspring. Greatly influenced by TB genes and steeped in athleticism, United Way should be able to produce performance. His very good topline should also enable him to provide his offspring with appropriately long and strong backs.

Uriko KWPN

of Untouchable — Lavito

Life number: NLD003200707442 / Strain: 04172
Size: 172 cm / Colour: Braun / Date of birth: 05.06.2007
Breeder: Aaldering/Swelheim / Location: PT Loosbroek
Owner: Holsteiner Verband Hengsthaltungs GmbH / Location: Elmshorn
WFFS Status: negative

Uriko embodies modern show jumping type. Standing 1.72m at the withers, the long-legged stallion totally complies with the Holsteiner Verband breeding stallion requirements.

He has an expressive head, a well-set neck of good length and a well-structured and muscular back joined by powerful hindquarters.

Considerations for breeding
Uriko’s rideability has greatly improved and he has already earned a reputation for sireing excellent type. Uriko offspring are modern, typey, and with good movement. His first crops have already yielded several excellent jumpers. Considering that he provides an interesting genetic alternative, he should be bred to mares with good quality movement and good natural rideability, preferably.
