Cancara is a big-framed stallion, in his appearance clearly stamped by his sire Cassini I. At the Neumünster stallion grading he performed brilliantly in all jumping phases, and counted among the stallions demonstrating the greatest jumping ability.
This stallion carries highly interesting bloodlines as his dam Lacosta comes from stem 162, one of the most successful mare families in the world. As yet, stem 162 has produced a number of Olympic horses – Cöster, Carthago Z, Canturo, Waterford Crystal, Feinschnitt, Foliant and Madrigal. Stem 162 has several branches. Cancara goes back to the branch of Meistergrad daughter Katrin, a foundation mare at Peter Reimer Janssen’s Kattrepel stud farm. She is 3rd dam to Non Stop, a highly successful jumping sire in the Belgian studbook, and 2nd dam to Cöster, winner of individual and team gold with Christian Ahlman at the 2005 Europeans and team bronze medallist with the German team at the Athens Olympics in 2004.
Cancara offspring stand out for their exceptional jumping quality, as the big-framed Cassini I son standing 1.76m tall is able to pass on his own jumping ability and technique to his offspring. Cancara is excellently suited for mares with a lot of TB blood.

Offspring of Cancara
His foals have been characterised by particular convincing movement and very good type.
Cancara was stationed at Zangersheide during the 2011 breeding season and stood in Italy afterwards. After being made available to American breeders at Karen Reid’s facility for three years, he has been stationed at Elmshorn since 2016. His 2017 crop yielded very typey foals, with more than half of them awarded premium status. A Cancara foal out of a Quadrigo-Loutano mare (Silke Bustorf, Blissee) won best colt of Bordesholm breeding district and became SchleswigHolstein’s 4th best colt at the VTV/R+V Holsteiner foal championship.
Numerous highly interesting sport horse offspring have been attracting attention in recent years, like Classic Edition, toppriced lot of the Holsteiner spring auction in 2014, and Consoto, a bright young jumping talent sold to the stable of US top rider Kent Farrington through the Holsteiner Elite Auction. Other successful international level young sport horses by Cancara include Bali with Janne Friederike Meyer-Zimmermann, Cascara RN with Ingemar Hammarström, Dacara E under Cassandra Orschel, Cyranthus with Markus Heim (SUI), Be Happy with Miriam Schneider, Paypawers Casila under Jeff Paw Nielsen (DEN), Classic Edition with Tom Martens (NEL) and Concorde under Stijn van Gorp (BEL).
