Candola an imported, licensed Holsteiner that was appreciated at the stallion selection for his fine conformation, his presence and good movements. Especially his superb canter, in which the stallion showed extreme balance, had a very powerful jump and used his hind very well. In his 70 day’s test in Munster Handorf, Candola showed his quality with a third place in class 1, with high notes for jumping and character. Competing up to 1.40 in Germany before his importation, he has gone on to compete in North America up to 1.30. His pedigree reads like the who's who in show jumping! Just about every sire in his pedigree competed up to 1.60 and many of the dam line have also had exemplary jumping careers.
Sire of the 2008 licensed Candola, is the world famous stallion Caruso. Caruso displayed his fantastic qualities, for example in the German Championships for young horses in Warendorf, where he earned a splendid third place in the finals of the six-years-olds under Ulrich Kirchhoff in 2002. Caruso belongs to the most promising sporthorses of his generation. He has many placings in 1.50 and 1.60 classes and is kwalified for the Olympics in Quatar and Lummen. Caruso was at the Olympics as a teammember for Saudi Arabia.
With his superb temperament, outstanding jumping ability and form, and can do attitude, Candola D will make an exceptional cross for North American breeders.
