His father Cabrio show jumped at Grand Prix level in the USA. In turn his father was Cantus himself an International jumper and sire of the stunning grey Calvaro who was ridden to a silver medal at the Atlanta Olympics by Willi Melliger. Cantus' sire is the great Caletto I who was one of the most successful German Nations Cup team horses and prolific sire of jumpers making him one of the top 10 sires in the World Breeding Rankings on progeny winnings.

His mother is by Swap XX, a much used and sought after Thoroughbred stallion for the Dutch breeding programme providing the perfect required blood to go with the Holstein fatherline. In turn, the maternal Great Grandsire is Porter by the trakhener stallion Polarfurst and also maternal Grandsire of the great Secundus the stallion who stands 1st in the top list of progeny in Great Britain.

EXPERIENCE

Cello arrived in February 2006.

He arrived only just broken and having been ridden under saddle just a few times.

Since being with us he has learned how to trot and canter in balance and has started his jumping training. He is proving to be extremely athletic, light off the floor and careful. Although still a little green, he is a very quick learner and already works in an outline, has great rythmn and loves his jumping. We have been training him quietly so as not to rush him but he is already jumping round a small course with fillers. He has a great technique and is showing a huge jump. He will be ready to start 4 year old Style classes in the summer and I am sure he will do very well.

Cello has now started competing and the pictures to the right are of him at his very first show. At his second show he qualified for the 4yo Style & Performance Finals at Pyecombe in August.

He has a very light snaffle mouth and is extremely easy to train. He always wants to please and tries very hard. He has a fantastic attitude and is learning very quickly.

This little horse has a big future. Very athletic and with fabulous breeding he has great potential and will make a superb jumper.
