This nice Holstein gelding gives pleasure to his rider day by day: He has very good riding qualities, is nice in the contact, and also motivated and well behaved. As a look at his pedigree reveals, he shows a lot of talent at the jump. He realizes all demanded tasks with ease and implicitness, and jumps with a nice technique and scope. Moreover he has elastic gaits, strong hind legs and good ground coverage, so that he for sure can also participate in dressage tests.
Calippo is by the Holstein sire Caplan. Caplan carries excellent Holstein show jumping bloodlines through the great sires Carolus I and Landgraf. He only covered few mares, but produced internationally successful horses such as for example Cannavaro, competing in 1,60 m under Ward Mc Lain. Also the dam carries excellent show jumping bloodlines, being bred by Lansing and Carthago.
Calippo is a very versatile prospect, suitable for amateur riders and he will for sure be a great partner in the hunter sport, the show jumping sport or as well as the dressage sport.
