Cardento had a very impressive sport career under his constant rider, Sweden’s Peter Eriksson. The combination won silver with the Swedish team at the Arnhem Europeans, the Athens Olympics and the Jerez de la Frontera WEG. Moreover, they claimed several wins at Nations Cup and grand prix level, including the Gera, Helsinborg, and Holte grands prix with the big-framed grey always standing out for his tremendous ability and exceptional rideability when negotiating a course. Cardento has top quality offspring in Sweden as well as in the Netherlands. 2014 saw six Cardento sons and daughters compete at the Caen WEG: Matrix, Celestine, Carisma, Duke of Carnaval, Cafino, and Silverstar VDL. Two Cardento offspring, Cue Channa and Zacramento, won silver with the Swedish team at the Gothenburg Europeans; other offspring like Carat, H&M Flip’s Little Sparrow or Carrera claimed wins at international grand prix level. For years, Cardento offspring dominated the Swedish Young Horse Championship. In the Netherlands, his sons Corporal VDL, Carrera VDL, Dakar VDL, and Grand Slam VDL have been licensed for breeding.
