Catapult is a spectacular sabino buckskin Swedish Warmblood stallion with interesting sabino markings including a "lightning bolt" pattern on his inside right hind leg, two long stockings, white chin and a belly spot directly in the center of his stomach.  Catapult should have little trouble living up to his name:  He comes from a long line of successful Grand Prix and Olympic show jumping competitors and producers. He is a modern style Warmblood with some of the best Holsteiner and Selle Français bloodlines. Catapult is truly a one-of-a-kind stallion.  He is super sweet in nature, has the most sensible, gentle disposition, is incredibly versatile, and loves to do his work.
   
  
In early 2010, Catapult completed 3 months of professional training with
a Grand Prix dressage rider, followed by 4 months of training with Grand Prix show jumper Kevin Maxie, who competed with Catapult at several A-rated shows, and showcased him at his stallion inspection.  At the training stable, he was affectionately nicknamed "Pussycat" by his admirers due to his unflappable and gentle demeanor.  Comments from Kevin: "<Catapult> actually surprised me with his willingness and enthusiasm jumping.  This horse has no shortage of jump in him", and at the show grounds, "I can't believe the brains on this stallion.  He's just as happy eating grass and hanging out at a show.  You'd never guess he was a stallion unless you took a closer look."

     

Catapult was presented to the stallion evaluation committee for the Swedish Warmblood Association of North America (SWANA) in September of 2010. Catapult passed his stallion inspection with top scores in his jumping technique and overall jumping impression while under saddle (scores below) and was one of only 2 stallions approved by the Swedish committee in North America that year. 

   

Catapult also competed on the Canadian National A Jumping Circuit as a 4- and 5-year old and had multiple clear rounds up to 1.00m in the Schooling Jumper divisions. He was then sold and gelded, and continued his show career in the United States on the HITS Hunter circuit in 2012 and 2013 where he consistently placed in the top 10 and won several 3'0"-3'3" Hunter classes. He was CHAMPION *twice* of the Children's Hunter Division, CHAMPION of the Best Child Rider-Horse Division, RESERVE Champion of the Modified Hunter Division, and RESERVE Champion of the Children's Hunter Division in 2013.  He continued to display his versatility in 2015 when he competed at USEF First Level Dressage and placed second at one of his competitions with an impressive score of 71.56.

Catapult's Ancestors (use scroll bar to view entire text)

   

His sire, Cagliostro 931, was awarded Premeirad A with the ASVH (Swedish Warmblood), attained the highest scores in jumping during his 1997 stallion testing in Sweden, and his BLUP-index in jumping is 139 (BLUP-index ranked #19 of the top 350 stallions).  Cagliostro 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).  Cagliostro successfully competed in the FEI Western European League World Cup in Sweden against world-renowned horse-rider combinations including Meredith and Ludger Beerbaum with Shutterfly and Couleur Rubin respectively, Nick Skelton with Arko III, John Whitaker with Exploit de Roulard and the 2004 Olympic Individual Gold Medalist, Rodrigo Pessoa with Baloubet du Rouet.  As of 2005, Cagliostro had claimed more than 20 wins and nearly 100 placings in international Grand Prix jumping classes at fence heights up to 1.60m (5'2").  
   
  
Catapult’s foundation ancestors include Rantzau xx (Grand Prix producer), Cottage Son xx (Olympic producer),
Ladykiller xx (Grand Prix producer and sire of Landgraf I, Holsteiner Stallion of the Century and Olympic producer), and Furioso xx (Olympic producer).  Cor
de la Bryère (elite, Reserve Stallion of the Century second to Landgraf I) produced many top-level competition and Grand Prix horses including Corlandus, the 1987 World Champion in d
ressage and Individual Silver Medal recipient at the 1988 Olympics in Seoul.  Calando I (elite, jumping index of 136) was a champion German show jumper and placed in the top ten of the USEF Leading Jumper Sire rankings three consecutive years in a row from 2000-2002 and in 2005 he was ranked higher than the elite jumper stallion Voltaire.

      

Liostro (elite) produced over 100 successful sport horses including the Grand Prix winners Otis, LioCalyon and Sapphire who was also the Pan American Games Individual Gold Medal Winner and 2004 Athens Olympian.  Ella (elite) produced the stallion Constant, an international show jumper and sire of the world-famous Olympian show jumper Chin Chin, who placed sixth individually in the 1988 Seoul Olympic games and made a second appearance in the 1992 Olympic games in Barcelona.  Ella's dam, Dorette (elite), is also the dam of Roman, the famous broodmare sire that jumped internationally at S-level, and also Farn (Preferent), who sired the Dutch Preferent Sire of the Century, Nimmerdor.

     

The elite stallion Urbino 430 is recognized as one of Sweden’s foundation sires and is the sire of Flyinge Flamingo 481 (elite, recipient of the Olympic Bronze Medal in dressage in 1984), Flyinge Bobby 896 (World Championships, European Championships and Olympic competitor in dressage), and over 100 studbook mares.  Urbino is also the sire of Callaghan 460 who was awarded Premeirad A, which is the highest award given to a breeding stallion and recognizes not only the excellence of the individual, but also the consistent ability to pass on these qualities to offspring.  Grand Veneur was often France’s leading sire based on the performance of his progeny especially at the Grand Prix level and produced more than 335 show jumping winners and more than 75 stallions.  His elite son, Le Tot de Semilly, along with his rider won 22 international and 63 national Grand Prix titles and almost 200,000 euro in prize money.  

      

Gold Rose was a member of the French show jumping team from 1979 until 1982, during which time she 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).  Jolie Rose was an outstanding producer of successful international show jumpers, Gold Rose being one of them, and her sire, Ibrahim, was a highly sought after foundation sire for the Selle Français breed after his progeny proved to be great jumpers.  Ibrahim sired the dually recognized "Father of World Breeding" and the Selle Français "Stallion of the Century", Almé, who in turn sired 2 World Champions and 3 Olympic horses.  Gold Rose produced two approved sons, one of which was Turban Rose 834, who was only two points behind Nimmerdor in the USEF 2006 Leading Hunter Sires rankings.
