I bred, broke, trained, and am showing this large, quiet Holsteiner mare. She got a late start as I have moved twice and built new facilities in the last 5 years.
Bloodline fanatics will appreciate her breeding. Her sire is my former 1.35m AO jumper, Catiago (Cambridge/Carthago/Leonardo), full brother to international Irish show jumper, Magic Fox. Her dam is Daisy VII(Caretino/Ladykiller xx/Roman) from top Holsteiner motherline, 569. Daisy is the mother of one of Devin Ryan's early Grand Prix horses, Roman Saluut.
She rides out in company, in front or behind, and gallops quietly on the beach. She is a quiet mare to ride and has a canter that is easy to find the jumps with. I showed her in the modified adults this year, up to 0.90m. Though quiet, she is very, very careful. She can run as fast as you would like and stays off the jumps, you can just keep galloping to the jumps. She never pulls or gets strong.
She will easily jump up through the 1.20m amateurs, likely higher.
I plan on fox hunting and showing her in hunter paces this fall to demonstrate her versatility and give her some extra mileage
