Licensed stallion Cascola by Cassini I

sold horse stallion - soldGreat success for me, Harald Andresen at the licensing event of the Holsteiner Verband on the 1st weekend of November 2011 in Neumünster, where Cassini I son Cascola, born and raised on the Eibens farm, was licensed with catalogue number 27 and sold to Brazil at the subsequent auction of licensed stallions.

A wonderful success of Hof Eibens and the horse breeding of Harald Andresen. Born and raised at Hof Eibens, the stallion by Cassini I out of the Patents from Contender / Landgraf I / Calypso I - Stamm 5302 (Note: The mare is currently in foal to Cassini I again and the foal is expected at the end of January 2011) was presented at the licensing of Holstein stallions in the fall of 2011 and was licensed by the Holsteiner Verband due to his outstanding qualities at the jump and his tremendous jumping ability. Cascola, who showed a lot of presence to the licensing commission and the audience on all days, convinced in free jumping with an excellent technique and almost unlimited ability. In addition, the bay, three with a lot of energy, showed convincing basic gaits.

His sire, Cassini I, impressed already at his first public appearances with his outstanding free jumping with rare ability and in almost perfect manner. This natural jumping talent he also revealed in the course. With Bo Kristoffersen he won four qualifiers for the Bundeschampionat at the age of 6 and was the winner of the 1st Final Qualifier. At the age of 7, Cassini I again won several Youngster jumping competitions and placed highly in Grand Prix competitions at the age of 8.

At the age of 9 he won the Nations Cup in Helsinki with the Danish team and took part in the 1997 European Championships in Mannheim with Bo Kristoffersen. He then moved to Franke Sloothaak's stable. Together they won the Grand Prix of Arnhem and Modena. They were also part of the successful German Nations Cup team in Aachen and Modena. Their successes included outstanding results in London, Leipzig, Dortmund and Paris.

In addition to his impressive career as a sport horse, the special value of Cassini I lies in his unique sire quality. So far 59 of his sons have been licensed in Germany. At the age of 23, he is one of the most distinguished show jumping sires in the world. A large part of this was due to the successful appearance of his offspring at the major international championships. At the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, two of his offspring reached the individual finals. The Belgian licensed stallion Cavalor Cumano with Jos Lansink and Olympic with Steve Guerdat. Cavalor Cumano, a son out of a Landgraf I-Caletto II mare, also won the highest show jumping competition in the world in Calgary in 2004 with Jos Lansink and was third in the Grand Prix of Aachen in 2005.

In 2006 at the World Equestrian Games in Aachen, Cassini I was the outstanding sire. With Cavalor Cumano under Jos Lansink he provided the World Champion in the individual classification and with Eurocommerce Berlin under Gerco Schröder another son was represented in the winning team of the Dutch. In 2007 at the European Championships he provided the Vice European Champion with Cavalor Cumano With Eurocommerce Berlin again a horse of the Dutch gold medal team. In 2008, the Cassini I son Carlsson vom Dach and Will Simpson secured the team gold medal for the Americans at the Olympic Games in Hong Kong with a fast clear round in the jump-off.
In 2009 it was Camiro under Tony André Hansen, Verelst Curtis under the saddle of Daniel Deußer as well as Carino with his rider Ulrich Kirchhoff who achieved many international victories and placings.
Also in the younger generations there are always striking young talents by Cassini I, he placed with Cassinja under Hinnerk Köhlbrandt the Landeschampioness of the 5-year old show jumpers in Schlewsig-Holstein.

With his expressive and typey son Cassilano, who has all the possibilities at the jump, he produced a champion stallion at the Holstein licensing for the first time in 2009. In 2010 he was able to produce a licensed stallion in Neumünster with Corazone.

His dam, Patente, a performance tested Holsteiner Contender mare with a top pedigree! From the dam line of this broodmare, several show jumpers have already been successful in show jumping up to advanced (S) level. This expressive mare, who has outstanding jumping ability herself, passes this on to her foals. Capable - rideable - ready to perform - that's what Holstein show jumpers do.

The sire-sire of this licensed stallion Cascola, Contender a Calypso II son, is one of the most frequented stallions of the Holstein Verband. This stallion was licensed for Holstein in Neumünster in 1986. He passed his stallion performance test in Adelheidsdorf and, like his sire, was rated the best stallion of his year with an index of 133.41 (Dr. 118.91, Spr. 145.52). The extraordinary hereditary potential of Contender is on the one hand due to the special genetic make-up of Calypso II and on the other hand to the special genetic make-up of his dam Gofine.

Gofine delivered top horses when bred to different stallions: Ulina by Chicago was successful with Susanne Behring and her granddaughter Think Twice won the Grand Prix of Donaueschingen last year with Leopold von Asten. Largo, Frechdachs and Florenzia had placings in advanced level show jumping competitions. Cornetto by Caletto I was licensed and was internationally successful in show jumping in Denmark. Cassandro by Caletto-Landgraf, a grandson of Gofine, was a champion stallion in Holstein and later a successful show jumper in Italy.

In international show jumping, the stallion Contender now produces many top horses - although his sons and daughters do not always carry a Holstein brand. Because of his breeding in Oldenburg and Hanover he was used by breeders from all over Germany. The European Champions Montender with Marco Kutscher and Checkmate with Meredith Michaels-Beerbaum deserve special mention.

Today, this exceptional sire is only available to the mares of Holstein breeders. Contender gave the Holstein breed a number of top show jumpers. These include the three-time Derby winner Collin with Toni Haßman.

In 2006, Contender and his sons were particularly convincing at the licensing in Neumünster: With five licensed sons, he confirmed his exceptional position in the Holstein breeding program. In Germany, Contender has 290 successful offspring in advanced (S) level show jumping competitions and 114 licensed sons in various German breeding areas. With a breeding value for jumping of 154 points, Contender is one of the top stallions in Germany.

Out of 70 stallions that appeared in Neumünster - two more dropped out in the course of the event - 22 two-year-olds were licensed. "We saw a lot of modern, outstanding jumping stallions", Luxembourg's André Nepper, who had taken over the reporting, judged this year's Holstein stallion crop.
