CLASS I  Buckskin Swedish Warmblood 

Registered Swedish Warmblood (SWANA) 

Foaled June 4, 2010, Colt

17.0hh+ mature


Cairo was named very appropriately - as Cairo is the largest city in the African continent, Cairo is the largest foal we have ever produced!  He's as big as some of our 2-month old foals from the past years!  He is literally all legs and has a quirky and curious personality.


Cairo has a very interesting blend of both proven dressage and jumper bloodlines.  His dam has been champion in both the dressage and hunter rings, and his sire 

is our young premium imported Swedish stallion, Catapult, who will be making his debut in the jumper ring in 2010. 


Catapult is by Cagliostro 931, a Premeirad A Holsteiner/Swedish stallion, who was the high scoring jumper at his stallion testing in Sweden, and has a BLUP-index in jumping of 139 (BLUP-index ranked #19 of the top 350 stallions).  Cagliostro is a member of the Finnish International Showjumping team and has won and placed in numerous Grand Prix and International competitions including the World Equestrian Games, the Nation’s Cup (FEI: CSIO4*), and the World Cup (FEI: CSI-W).  

Cairo’s paternal dam line is so impressive, with world class mares including Ella, who produced the international show jumper stallion Constant and sire of the world-famous Olympian show jumper Chin Chin, Dorette, who produced Roman and Farn, the sire of the Dutch Preferent Sire of the Century, Nimmerdor, and also Gold Rose, who was a member of the French show jumping team and won the Grand Prix of Paris and Madrid and became second in Lisbon, Barcelona and Hamburg. Her total winnings were 621,000 Francs and she had an untouchable jumping index of 186! (For reference, Chin Chin’s index is 166).


Great grand sires include Bernstein 761, who was the #2 ranked Swedish Warmblood stallion in the world in 2003 behind his half brother, Amiral, Ladykiller xx, Cor de la Bryère, Ibrahim x 2, and Grand Veneur, France’s leading sire based on the performance of his progeny especially his elite son, Le Tot de Semilly, are superior to have in any pedigree.

8 = Type

7 = Head, Neck, Body

8 = Legs

7 = Walk

7 = Trot

SOLD!  Congratulations to Hayley Martin, DVM, Ontario, Canada, on the purchase and naming of this spectacular (gigantic!) foal!
