We are proud to introduce the Holsteiner stallion, Cathalido, pictured left.
Cathalido is approved Holsteiner, CWHBA and Canadian Sport Horse.
17.1h Bay Holsteiner, from the sought after Stamm 4294 line, foaled in 1999, bred by Harald Becker of Germany. He successfully completed the 30 day test in 2004.
Cathalido comes from some of the most proven show jumping lines in the world today. His sire, Calido 1, was the champion of his 100 day test scoring an incredible and perfect 10 for his jumping. Calido 1 is the sire of 19 approved stallions and 21 State Premium mares. Calido's sire, Cantus, also sired Calvaro V, a silver medalist at the Atlanta Olympics.
Cathalido's dam, IlonaXV is a full sister to the great Carlot III, a highly successful International Grand Prix winner under Rodrigo Pessoa. Cathalido's dam sire, Carthago, competed in two Olympic games and incredible 15 Nations Cups. Also on Cathalido's dam side is Silvia, sired by Lord, and out of a Sacramento Song mare.
Not only does Cathalido have the pedigree to be a successful sire, he has the scope, athleticism and temperament to back it up.
Frozen semen is available from Moores Equine in Calgary or from Misty River in Manitoba.
