We are elated to welcome this outstanding young stallion to our breeding program and for the privilege to offer such fine Sport Horse Bloodlines to sport horse and performance horse breeders around the world.
Chardo's sire, the impressive Holsteiner Stallion Charleston, is the son of sport horse legend Cascadello I x Casall / Capitol I x Cantus / Caletto I / Lady Killer xx. Charleston was the 2015 Champion Stallion of the Holstein Licensing in Germany, with both his flawless physical stature and performance presentation. Charleston was greatly complimented as he showcases such talents to be recognized as one of Cascadello I's top sons to date. During the licensing test, Charleston dominated the attention of all who watched him with his phenomenal jumping potential, scope, style, technique and power. He finished his Stallion Performance Test with top marks.
Chardo's grandsire, Cascadello I, won his 70-days performance test in Marbach in 2012 with 9.38 points in show jumping. Cascadello I, who truly needs no introduction, has a strong living legacy through his ten Licensed sons, highly decorated daughters, offspring in sport and foals. Cascadello I's daughters dominated "The Elmshorn Elite Mare Show in 2017." Cascadello I sired all three top scoring mares, Champion Mare, Reserve Champion Mare and the mare with the "strongest movements." Furthermore, Cascadello I enthralled the judges and the crowds with his outstanding performance during his stallion licensing. His phenomenal jump, scope, style, technique and overall impression could not be matched. Following the Stallion Licensing in 2012, Cascadello I sold for an impressive price of 600,000 Euros, capturing the title "Champion Premium Class Stallion." Cascadello I's sire Casall is the talk of the sport horse breeding world for his great success with rider Rolf-Goran Bengtsson and their win at the 'Global Championships Tour' Show Jumping Event in Hanburg and Monte Carlo, as well as their win at the 'World Cup Show Jumping Event' in Lyon and their second place finish at the 'World Cup Show Jumping Event' in Geneva.
Chardo's Dam is the State Premium Mare Fenjas, who is sired by Nerrado x Contender / Calypso II, an impressive lineage. Her portion of the pedigree is simply phenomenal and continues to impress, encompassing some of Show Jumping's finest Sport Horse bloodlines. Fenjas's sire, the great Olympian and Sport Horse Sire, Nerrado by Nekton, has a living legacy that is truly historical. Nerrado has successfully achieved the highest honors in performance, with grand accomplishments such as: Olympic Games rankings, a Gold, Silver, and Bronze Medal, FEI World Championship rankings, Grand Prix top rankings, top rankings at the 2018, 2019 and 2021 Continental / Regional Championships in Zuidwolde, with rider Hannes Ahlmann. Furthering his grand accomplishments, Nerrado has proven to be a world class sire, to date he has sired many Licensed Sons, State Premium producing daughters, and offspring performing in sport both Nationally and Internationally.
Chardo's Grand-Dam is the State Premium Mare A-Constella, who is sired by Contender x Alcatraz x Capitol I. A-Constella's sire, the Grand Stallion Contender, who's multi-faceted legacy is quite the historical story, earned his place in the Sport Horse Breeding World, elevating him as one of the most influential sires in history. Contender's great importance mirrors his fine bloodlines, which has secured him as one of the most sought-after sires in Germany to date. He produced 127 Licensed Sons, 59 State Premium Mares, 782 Registered Mares and 498 successful offspring in the sport.
