Caletto I

Caletto I is a son of the French sire Cor de la Bryere, who became a foundation sire in Holstein. His dam, the famous Deka, who produced five approved stallions: Caletto I (discussed below), Gonzales (showjumping stallion with the highest winnings in 1980, very successful at stud), Caletto II (champion sire of 1980, very successful at stud), Lysander and Caletto III (1990 winner of advanced showjumping competitions). Deka also gave birth to two successful international competition horses Cordeka/Herbert Blocker and Landratin/Hauke Luther.

Performance record of Caletto I: From 1981 to 1985 Caletto I successfully competed in international showjumping competitions under his owner. In 1983 he was team bronze medalist at the European championships in Hickstead. In the same year he was the most successful German horse competing in Prix des Nations classes and the horse with the highest winnings at the CSIO in Geneva. He has also won or been placed in numerous Grand Prix' and international competitions. In 1985 he won the first CSI in Stuttgart. In five years he won more than DM 100,000 - more than any German sire before him!

Breeding record of Caletto I: In his first season at Vornholz, Caletto I sired only notable breeding horses despite his infrequent covering activity. He is the sire of esteemed stallion Cartusch and dam-sire of the stallions Aldatus(P. Schockemohle) and Iberio (winner of the stallion performance test in Marbach in 1994:sire in Baden-Wurttemberg). The next two seasons he was stationed at Dithmarchen, where he sired a number of premium-winning foals and the sadly short lived stallion Camaro and Cantus, who died in 1994. Cantus was a reputed sire of showjumpers. Caletto I sired some high-priced auction lots (stat premium mare Carrara, sold to Brazil for DM 75,000) and many prize winning progeny. from: Stallions of Germany, 1997.



P. Vinke from The Netherlands bred Jorinde out of the Keur mare Ceralina, a daughter of the Holsteiner Ronald (Ramiro). Jorinde's mother has an IBOP certificate with 91 (!) points on her name. Grandmother Ursaline was bred out of a daughter from the Preferent Normandy stallion Duc de Normandie (Selle Francais) by Monceaux xx.As a three year old, Jorinde was placed second in her age group at the mare show in Ommen and qualified with these results for the leading group. In this leading group she ended 11th with 116 three year olds competing in this category. She was also one of the few three year olds that was already nursing a foal. The physical condition of Jorinde was said to be remarkably good and she has a very good trunk. Her neck is good and could maybe be a little richer but is being used in the right way. The legs are of good quality an the joints are well developed. Besides her good walk, the Ster declared Jorinde showed a beautiful carried, large and elastic trot.

This mare went on from this notable start to earn her "Elite" status based on her performance and offspring. Jorinde competed to Z level dressage and was shown over fences. We are very excited that Palladio inherited many wonderful traits from his lovely dam Jorinde.
