Stations

The stallion Caracho is available at all stations of the Holsteiner Verband stallion stable.

Pedigree of Caracho

Father

Caracho’s sire, Cassilano, was champion stallion of the Neumünster stallion grading in 2009 and won young horse jumping classes scoring as high as 9.0. At the 2012 Warendorf National Championship he qualified for the final with high placings in the qualifiers. Cassilano offspring stand out for very good type and exceptional movement. The rare occurance of a champion stallion’s first crop yielding yet another champion stallion speaks for his ability to pass on his quality.

Mother

Caracho’s dam Stella has earned herself the rating “highly recommendable“. A successful sport horse to S level under Jens Ritters herself, she is one of the few Quick Star daughters in the Holsteiner breeding programme and has a pedigree in a class of its own.

Further information

With exceptional sport horse and top sire Quick Star crossed to Holsteiner top sire Concerto II and French once-in-a-century stallion Cor de la Bryère in the female line, the dam line traces back to Virgina, a foundation mare in the Ritter family’s breeding programme. Concerto II daughter Nienburg III
has also stepped into the limelight through her produce, including Compadre van de Helle, at just 10-year-old a highly successful sport horse with placings at 1.60m level under Constant van Paesschen and the Holsteiner-licensed stallions Casquetto and Ferron. The last named stallion’s one year older full sister, Dithmarsia, was placed in several jumping classes at M level under junior rider Janne Ritters in 2018.

A daughter of TB sire Frivol, and from Caletto’s mare family 730B, Virgina boasts a tremendous number of performance descendants including Marius, Cefalo and Cassilano, through her daughters.

A particularly interesting aspect of Caracho’s genetic background is his breeder’s deliberate decision for line-breeding to the successful stem 730B in order to consolidate the positive traits of this successful line.

Personal contribution of Caracho

Sports success

The 2016 showing season saw Caracho’s first outings in competition under Maximilian Gräfe. He placed 2nd in two young horse jumping classes at A level, including the Elmshorn State Championship where he scored 8.6. More mature and developed and since 2017 under the saddle of Ebba Johannson, he has been shown in young horse jumping classes through M level to great success. The combination won a young horse jumping class at M** in Bad Segeberg, and thus qualified for the Warendorf National 6-year-old jumper Championship.
Currently Caracho placed in youngster competitions up to the 1.40m.

Stallion performance test

Even though the results of 30-day ability assessment in spring 2015 did not come up to expectations, 70-day testing in October/November yielded a much better result and a more accurate impression of the stallion’s performance potential. Scoring 9.0 on rideability, 8.5 on free jumping and 9.0 on stadium jumping, he received the total mark 8.24 (jumping weighted).

Test results

70-Tage-Test 2015: Gesamt 8,07; ZW-Dres. 100 (+17); ZW-Spr. 120 (-1)
