Casiro is a special sire for all disciplines. His offspring are successful all over the world – in jumping, dressage, hunting and eventing. During recent years, he has been shown in jumping classes up to 1.50m by Gerd, Hendrik and Janne. He won a puissance class by clearing 2.10m and the six bar competitions at Rastede and Elmlohe.
Casiro has been successful from the beginning of his life. He was awarded 1c premium stallion at the Holstein licensing. In 2005, he finished an excellent 30-days test in Adelheidsdorf.
In 2006, 2007 and 2008, he was victorious in several youngster classes and was vice champion at the Holsteiner championships where he also qualified for the “Bundeschampionat”. He competed at the World Championship for Young Jumpers in Lanaken/BEL successfully.
Janne Sosath-Hahn: “Casiro is simply fun. He always gives me a good feeling – even after a long (baby) break I was able to ride successfully in an S-class. At home he is “like a pony”, at tournaments he wants to show that he is the boss and he is a little bit more like a stallion. But it’s always just a show. When it comes to the course, he’s back on track. Our dressage trainer, Ulf Wiltfang, is sure that he could also be turned into a super dressage horse. But I’d rather do dressage riding only at home.”
Casiro’s pedigree is certainly a sight to see: he was bred from the same dam line as the World Champion Cumano, who descends from Holstein’s line 318 D1, and Casiro has the foundation sires Cassini I, Landgraf and Ramiro in his pedigree.
In addition, his dam Generation produced Casiro’s licensed full brother, Casiro II, and the licensed stallion Quite Zero (by Quite Capitol, as well as other successful show jumpers like the successful 1.50 m jumper Caplander (by Capo)/Sören von Rönne and Classic Europe (by Carthago), and the 1.35 m jumper Championica (by Champion du Lys).
His grand dam, Batallion B, produced the 1.50 m jumper Lavada (by Lavado) and Cord Classique (by Cor de la Bryère), as well as the 1.35 m jumpers LaRocca (by Lansing), Cara Colucci (by Caretello B) and Lester (by Lavall I), who was sold at a high price via the PSI auction.
Batallion’s daughter, Innovation (by I Love You) produced the 1.35 m jumper Lequito (by Leandro). The great-grand dam Variation competed successful in 1.35 m classes as well. The dam line 318 D1 is one of the most successful lines the in Holstein breeding. It is the line of World Champion Cavalor Cumano (by Cassini I/Jos Lansink/BEL) and the Derby winner Boy (Eddi Macken/IRL), who is full brother of the licensed stallion Ladalco (by Ladykiller xx). Furthermore, there are following licensed stallions out of the damline: Casino (by Capitol I), Centesimo I and II (both by Cento), Counter Star (by Counter), Fokus I and II (both by Fangball), Grand Liaison (by Großfürst), Labrador (by Ladykiller xx), Landaris (by Landgraf I), Libretto (by Liguster), Resolut (by Rhythmus) and Wildfang (by Wildfeuer).
