Holstein Stallion : Caletto II

       
   
 
                         
 
 
   

 

Despite only standing for four seasons, Caletto II is shaping up to be the most important son of the jumping super sire Cor de la Bryère.

 

                                        

 

Caletto II was a sensation right from the start and was acclaimed Champion of his stallion licensing in 1980. He was considered to be the perfect Holsteiner type. He also showed wonderful jumping technique, and later proved this in the show jumping ring with Herbert Bloeker, where the stallion won many tests for riding horses. At a regional show in September 1984, after being proclaimed best in the show, Caletto II was waiting to go into the arena, when he reared up, fell over and regrettably broke his neck at nearly 7 years of age!

Just how great a loss the untimely death of Caletto II was , has been shown by the fact that he was ranked 16th in the standings for ten consecutive years, with his two megastar offspring, Operette La Silla and Jewel's Classic Touch contributing the bulk of the points. Calletto II's son Caretino jumped internationally with Bo Kristoffersen and later with Ludger Beerbaum.
