Carrado MVNZ is an athletic stallion and an outstanding example of his Holsteiner genetics. He is an impressive type with good expression and is stamping his progeny. Carrado has an incredible jump with huge scope.  He is careful and powerful over a fence and loves to jump!

Carrado MVNZ is by the Elite Holsteiner stallion Cassini II, a full brother to the legendary Cassini I. Cassini II was approved in 1996 with a high jumping index and place third in his jumping ability.  He had high scores for his character and temperament.

Cassini II produced modern, athletic types and his progeny have successfully competed at the top level of the sport.  He has many approved sons and daughters.

Carrado’s dam Noah ( Corrado I x Constant) comes from the Holsteiner line 18a2. She has produced three approved sons.

This is one of the oldest and most proven motherlines in Holstein. This family has been responsible for no less than fifty approved stallions including Cristallo, Cordano Z, Chambertin, Leonardo 1 and 11, the Corrado son Clinton and the landgraf son Linaro.

Carrado’s family, on both sides, boast many Grand Prix horses with much talent! Carrado has inherited the scope, athleticism and power of the families he was born into.

Carrado’s half brother, Di Cantero van ter Hulst Z (by Diamant de Semilly) won the title of top 4 yo Belgian Stallion 2015 at the Pavo Hengstecompetitie.

Carrado’s progeny, the oldest being 5 yo, are looking very promising.  Carrado has passed on his scope and athleticism. One of his first colt foals gained Top Colt of the 2013 Holsteiner Classification Tour. In the classification tour the following year, his progeny were awarded top filly and top colt.

Carrado MVNZ is now based in Victoria Australia with Brook Dobbin. He has been on the Australian recognition squad since 2016.
