Highlander has been with us since 2008. We instantly fell in love with him when he came out of the stable and rested his head on my father's shoulder. Thankfully my parents kindly invested in him for the stud. Highlander has the most amazing temperament, he is a true gentleman. He is my competition horse and has even been known to help bring in the sheep.
He truly is my horse of a lifetime. You have to meet him to believe how amazing his temperament is. Highlander has correct confirmation and a powerful hind leg. He has a very uphill canter and a powerful jump.
( Casall x contender ) 2011 Hanover Holstein
The Most Famous Trakehner Showjumper
Casallco represents the Holstein lineage 8798, which is of Hanoverian origin, and has also produced the licensed stallions Hemmingway, Le Filou I and II and the internationally successful show jumping horses Charly Brown/Uwe Volmer and Marc Bettinger as well as Quenaro.
Casallco's international show jumping career is gaining momentum with Philip Rüping: second place in the Grand Prix of Paderborn, fourth place in the Grand Prix of Riesenbeck, seventh place in the Grand Prix of Lastrup and further top placings in courses up to 1.45m. For the OS reserve winner, Ib main premium winner, stallion performance test successful candidate (three times the dream mark 10) and German Championship qualifier, the future clearly points to absolute top-class sport, just like for his offspring, to whom he has passed on his almost unlimited abilities. Seven of his sons have been licensed, including Cavoiro – H OLD/Tobias Meyer, OS Champion Stallion, stallion performance test winner and successful in the International Youngster Tour, as well as Caskkato TW/Scott Dollemore/GBR and Cajulio/Simon Nizri/MEX, who are also internationally successful. Cancún/Richard Vogel, Casallbertin PS, Cash Blue PS and Cristo/Hergen Forkert, who qualified for the German Championships as well as the Vice Show Jumping Champion of Deister, Cajulio, are in the starting blocks. Casallco's daughter, St.Pr.St. Casalena, became second Reserve Champion Mare at the Westphalian Elite Show. Also highly placed with rank Ic: Caramba.
With Casall, Contender, Carthago and Calypso II, Casallco combines the absolute best of the Holstein breed in his pedigree. Furthermore, the line founder Cor de la Bryère appears four times in his pedigree.
With prize money of around 4.2 million Euros, his sire Casall was one of the highest earners. Ridden by Rolf-Göran Bengtsson/SWE, the son of the great Caretino won the Global Champions Tour overall ranking, the Leipzig World Cup final and the European Championship team bronze medal. He often competed at high level against his no less successful offspring, who placed him in the top ten of the world's best show jumping sires, according to WBFSH, for the first time in 2015. Amongst his over 80 licensed stallions are the two Holstein Champion Stallions Cadilo and Casaltino as well as the Reserve Champions Catch it and Cascadello I, with the latter auctioned for a record price of 600,000 Euros.
His dam Zelda IV is the full sister of the internationally ranked Chocoprince and half-sister of the show jumping World Championship finalist Chasseur Ask Z (by Casall).
His dam sire Contender produced numerous internationally successful show jumpers. In Germany alone, they have won over eleven million euros in prize money.
His grand dam Marli is the full sister of the licensed stallions Creve Coeur and Chippendale, who is successful up to 1.40m in show jumping.
Carthago, who appears in the third generation, took part in the Olympic Games in Atlanta/USA and Sydney/AUS with Jos Lansink/BEL. He also won the Nations Cups in Aachen, Rotterdam/NED and La Baule/FRA and is considered one of the most influential sons of Capitol I in breeding.
In the fourth generation, Contender’s influential sire Calypso II appears a second time, followed by Ramiro's exceptional son, Rio Negro.
