Forino

For Pleasure — Caretino

Description of Forino

Today’s standards for riders and horse buyers are set on the international sport scene. With “trends” being created in competition, jumper breeding is increasingly international.

In the top group of international sires, For Pleasure has maintained a high profile owing to his or his sons’ high-achieving international offspring like Flora de Mariposa (Penelope Leprevost/FRA), Fit for Fun (Luciana Diniz/POR) or Fine Lady (Eric Lamaze/CAN).

As yet, demand for this blood has been limited in Holstein, knowing that breeding to For Pleasure might not easily bring about good results in terms of type. On the other hand, For Pleasure is still considered an exemplary show jumper for his expressiveness and longevity, soundness and overall quality. From the very beginning, the presentation of this 2-year-old colt by For Pleasure out of Wonka had been a true highlight due to his obviously exceptional pedigree. Even though many prospective buyers from Germany and abroad had done their best to purchases this gem, maintaining Forino for the Holsteiner stud book had been the priority of his breeder, Manfred von Allwörden.

His dam, Wonka by Caretino, a big-framed, typical Holsteiner mare, is a proven sport horse herself – she won the Elmshorn State 5-year-old Jumping Horse Championship in 2011 and went on to compete at international S level.

A sister to Wonka, Vienna Olympic by Cassini I, boasts major international results under Edwina Tops-Alexander and later under Sheikh Ali Al Thani. 9-year-old, she competed at the 2014 Caen WEG where she made it to the top 25.

His dam line is closely linebred to Cor de la Bryère through Contender and Caretino. This systematic linebreeding creates the basis for a successful mating to For Pleasure. Height and movement are anchored in Forino’s dam line, jumping technique has been consolidated by three crosses to Cor de la Bryère, thus resulting in a highly interesting young stallion. Just now, the strikingly modern and typey bay stallion born in the beginning of July is still very youthful, requiring the beholder to think ahead. His facial expression reflects his even temper and intelligence. He has enough frame and an excellent topline. His legs are correct, with very good, sound hooves. He has the movement of an athlete: not flashy, but powerful, balanced, and very ground-covering. His performance under saddle is excellent, as he wows the rider with his active, foamy mouth, and the rhythm, impulsion, and balance displayed.

His jumping reflects his bloodline. His carefulness and quality is an inheritance from For Pleasure same as from Caretino and Contender and their grandsire Cor de la Bryère. He draws his ability from Lagos by TB sire Ladykiller and the Holsteiner mare family 776.

Considerations for breeding:

This young stallion stands out for a number of particularly positive traits: willingness to perform, general quality under saddle, good judgement and jumping quality. Even though these are no conformation criteria, they are highly significant for his breeding potential. Considering his current frame in the medium range but with sure indications for growing to 168cm approx. he might be best suited for big-framed mares with long legs to produce the horses required for modern day sport.
