Calibre Of Noblewood Park (IMP)
Calibre is bred in what is termed by Holstein devotees as ‘The Golden Triangle or Golden Cross’, which includes double crosses to Capitol: Cor de la Bryere and Caletto II. This impressive grey stallion was born in 2009 and stands at 16.2hh.
Calibre is the embodiment of three incredibly important bloodlines, and we are extremely fortunate in Australia to have such an exceptionally bred young stallion. Calibre will be stationed in Western Australia for the next two years, and will continue under saddle with Lucy Galovicova whilst he begins his showjumping career.
SIRE LINE – CASSINI I
Cassini I is the son of the famous ‘jumper-maker’, Capitol I, who passed on his grey colour – his trademark – to many of his offspring. Just like Gotthard in Hannover, it was Capitol who made ‘white’ modern again in Holstein. After his offspring started to impress with their jumping performances and breeders made sure the mares they bred to him had enough thoroughbred in their pedigrees, a number of interesting sons were licensed during his last years.
Cassini I is out of a daughter of the ‘ideal’ Holstein stallion Caletto II, who died in an accident after only four breeding seasons. Even during his short lifetime, this stallion was extremely popular and his offspring in showjumping are among the best. At the 1992 Olympic Games in Barcelona Spain, his outstanding daughter Classic Touch won the gold medal under Ludger Beerbaum, putting another jewel in his crown.
Cassini I’s performance record included tests for young jumpers under Bo Kristoffersen and a placing at the Bundeschampionat. Franke Sloothaak then took over, and the couple placed in many European Championships (including first place in the Grand Prix of Arnheim, NED). Wins in Nations Cups and placings in World Cups followed. Among Cassini’s I’s offspring include over 16 State Premium mares and 30 licensed stallions. An incredible number of them are successful in international competitions. Cumano, Eurocommerce Berlin, Carino, Cheers Cassini, Chatwin are a few examples of internationally successful Cassini I horses.
DAM LINE – CORINNA
Calibre is out of the dam Corinna, which comes from the super successful Holsteiner mother line Stamm 173. Stamm 173 is the producer of the Capitol’s I – IV, as well as Quite Capitol, Quite Easy I, II and III, Lord Capitol, Cevin, Dream of Glory, Remus and Nintendo. Calibre’s dam has also produced the successful sporthorse mare Quibell 5, currently ridden by talented Swedish rider from the stables of Ludger Beerbaum, Henrik Von Eckermann.
