Here is the most phenomenal show jumping sensation. Even at the time of his performance test in 1996 Stakkato showed amazing talent for jumping which is reflected in his score and first placing in the criteria. He is described as a medium framed stallion who had very good style over the jumps but he also received very good rideability marks. Stakkato started his career in jumping at the same time that he began stud duties and he has never looked back. In an unusual move Celle sold 50% of this outstanding show jumper to the Bitter stables in Essen. With the renowned Eva-Maria Bitter in the saddle Stakkato became the unsurpassed winner of the Hanoverian riding horse championship at the Dobrock, as well as overriding federal champion in Warendorf. He scored the dream points of 9.9, which has never been done before. He has had a whole series of wins in show jumping competitions.
In 1999 he took part in the Federal Championship, in which he became vice-champion. The duos tally of successes meanwhile includes international placements in Grand Prix and Nations Cups. In 2002 Stakkato led the FN breeding value statistics for showjumping for the second time running. He has showed himself to be not only an amazing show jumper but an extraordinary sire of show jumping progeny. His breeding value for jumping is phenomenal.
Sire of Stakkato, Spartan, began his siring career in Canada and won a number of difficult competitions over the jumps in Grand Prix. He is classically bred to performance via Servus- Gotthard. The dam Pia derives from the extraordinarily true to type grey stallion Pygmalion who served in Verden for many years. Pygmalion combines great nobility and outstanding rideability with great jumping ability and was trained up to Grand Prix. Goldstern by Gotthard was very popular as a sire of very rideable and capable show jumpers. The maternal line produced the Julius Casar son Julier, who founded his own line in former East Germany.
He has 50 licensed sons, 108 state premium mares, 369 main studbook mares, 172 auction horses and winning sum of progeny is Euro 2,453,065.00. He is a life member of Hanoverian show jumper breeding program.
