Castle Creek is a hopeful sire of the Holsteiner Verband Hengsthaltungs GmbH and has good basic gaits and special jumping potential.
The success of many high-achieving Holsteiner breeding and sport horses is due to their solidly constructed genetic background. Stallions known to pass on their qualities to their offspring are bred to mares with a genetic capacity well-known to their breeders. This process being repeated from generation to generation has led to the development of some particularly successful branches of our Holsteiner performance lines.
Castle Creek’s breeding is the manifestation of such a powerful genetic make-up. His type and ability to perform have been particularly influenced by selective line breeding to top sire Caletto II.
Castle Creek boasts excellent and highly impressive basic gaits, not only in-hand, but also under saddle, with a canter in a class of its own. He is a very careful jumper with outstanding hind leg technique.
A young stud with a bloodline carrying exceptional sires based on a consolidated dam line. Considering his dis-tinctive type and high-quality movement, he is expected to produce foals suited to meet the requirements of the modern market. Castle Creek’s particular strenghts are his rideability and his quality canter. Along with his aptitude for jumping, combining energetic take-off, carefulness and scope, he offers the breeders an excellent opportunity to improve their mares’ inheritance.
