Pedigree profile of Rivendell Cartier (Sold)

D.O.B 14/12/2015 -  Sheikh It (Imp) x Calido I x Landjunker

Cartier is a little cracker…. With a pedigree like hers, one could not expect less. She is by the premium licensed hannoverian stallion ‘Sheikh it’, out of a state premium mare Celine Dion.

The higher the better! Sheikh It demonstrates the full scope of his abilities over jumps and his impressive technique has catapulted him straight to premium stallion status. He's also a fantastic mover with a modern competition horse conformation.

Sire, Stolzenberg, has an impressive 79 wins on his scorecard, from 1.10 m novice classes to advanced level classes. He won his stallion performance test with a jumping index of 141.88 points, and his offspring have already won many novice horse classes for their age groups.

Maternal grandsire, Escudo I, was Hanoverian Stallion of the Year in 2009, has competed up to advanced level show jumping and his offspring have already won more than one million euro in prize money. 62 Escudo I progeny compete at 1.50 m level and 30 of his sons are approved stallions. Notable offspring include Bundeschampion El Paso, the Bundeschampionat bronze medallist in 2009 Echt Stark, Ludger Beerbaum's Grand Prix winner Enorm and Escobar, silver medal winner at the European Championships with Thomas Weinberg. His dam produced approved full brother, Sting vd Withoeve, and two auction horses, including medium level dressage horse For My Love. The dam's line is also responsible for Escudo I's son, Eddy-The-Eagle, a successful show jumper up to three star 1.50 m classes, and advanced dressage horse Azem.

Sheikh It is a modern-type stallion with the proven genes of top sire Stakkato.

As dam to the top Hannoverian stallion Salito, Celine is a very valuable component to the show-jumping component of the stud.
Sire Calido was the standout sire in the jumping at the 2004 Bundeschampionate, siring the winner of the 5 year old jumping championship, Coster, and the Reserve Champion, Clintwood, and Celine making it through the final. Calido carries the influential Holstein C line of Cor de la Bryere and Capitol. Calido has been a success at stud and has been awarded the highest FN breeding ranking. His oldest progeny are already internationally successful. Stallion sons of Calido include Calanthano, Caleri, Calido Ass, Calmo, Candyman, Cantino, Cerutti, Cervantes, Chalet, Chapot Charakter, Charisma, Conquest of Paradies, Cormint, Coster, Counter, Count Basie and Crelido.

In the Hanoverian Stallion book for 2007 Calido is recorded with progeny earnings of 721,361 euro, with 496 progeny competing in jumping and with 98 at advanced levels. He has an FN jumping index of 144 and a dressage ranking of 117. On the basic of the Hanoverian mare and auction tests, he has a dressage score of 119 and a jumping rank of 159.

Calido passes on his lovely type and jumping ability. His pedigree contains 3 times Cor de la Bryere, 3 times Cottage Son XX, 3 times Ramzes AA and 2 times Anblick XX.

St Pr St Celine Dion is also the dam of the Hannoverian stallion Salito, now standing in Spruce Meadows.
For the jumper breeder, this impressive stallion has tremendous potential, placing 1st in the jumping portion of the Hannoverian 300 Day Test in 2004 and finishing 8th overall.

Until 2008, this magnificent son of Stakkato stood at the Langestutt State Stud in Celle, Germany. He was approved in 2004. At Salito's performance test at Adelheidsdorf in 2004 he was awarded first place in the jumping category out of 42 stallions in his year. Points given were 8 for character, 8 for willingness, 8 for conformation, 7 and 7.67 for rideability, 6 for trot, 7 and 6 for canter, 6 for walk, 9.17 for free jumping, 9.33 for jumping manner, 9 for jumping technique and 9 for cross country. Salito was the 2006 Hannoverian Jumping Champion in Dobrock and continued to impress with admirable results in both the 2006 and 2007 Bundeschampionat. This Hannoverian Jumping Champion of 2006 and winner of countless show jumping competitions in Germany stood at the Landgestut State Stud in Celle. German breeders were impressed by his offspring as winners of free jumping championships and mare performance tests.
