Sabino Buckskin Swedish
Swedish Warmblood (SWANA)
("Bean") is a gorgeous buckskin sabino
colt with the classic markings passed from his sire,
Catapult, including 2 hind stockings, one front left
half sock, and a lovely star-strip-snip and white
chin. He is nearly as big as his full brother,
Cairo, and at only one day of age was bouncing
around trying to coordinate his huge hocks and long legs.
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 has been competing successfully in the national jumping circuit.
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).
Caribbean’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).
grand sires include Bernstein 761,
the #2 ranked Swedish
Warmblood stallion in the world in 2003 behind his half brother, Amiral, Ladykiller
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.
