Performance Record

HOLSTEIN BREEDING DOESN’T GET ANY BETTER – The pedigree unites the Internationally sought after blood lines of Calido I and Carthago. Their influences are huge in sport and breeding.



Today Calido I is one of the most important sires world wide. His pedigree shows Cor de la Bryère A.N., Cottage Son xx three times each and Ramzes AA and Anblick xx twice. The dam’s sire Coriander was a multiple talent and won dressage competitions of advanced level many times. Calido I led the jumping ranking of his stallion performance test and won 25 young horses’ jumping classes. The final qualification at Bundeschampionate was one of them. His extraordinary breeding value secures him a solid position at the top and it is proven by his progeny’s successes. More than 69 sons of Calido I were Aproved Stallions, 293 of his offspring record success in advanced level jumping. His progeny’s lifetime winnings recorded at FN amount to € 3.258.761.



Under Jos Lansink Carthago jumped in the Atlanta and Sydney Olympics, won the Nations Cup in Aachen, Rotterdam and La Baule as well as numerous Grand Prix.
Carthago Z is considered one of the most influential sires ever and the most important product of Capitol I. In his career he created a dynasty that is unequalled. Up until today Carthago Z has 73 stallions world-wide active in breeding and is of immeasurable value in the pedigrees of hundreds of international sport horses.
