Pedigree :

Cardento  Capitol I 
B-Estelle 
Vantiels Esprit  Baloubet du Rouet 
Esprit 
Carrera VDL Maastricht, J. Vrieling (NED

Carrera is a striking and interestingly bred horse from a combination of two Olympic stallions. Sire, Cardento, won three Silver medals under Peter Eriksson at the Olympics, the World Championship and the European Championship. As a sire Cardento is a producer of international jumping offspring who participate at European and World Championships and the Olympic Games. Grand sire, Baloubet du Rouet, was Olympic Champion with Rodrigo Pessoa; a three-time winner of World Cup Finals; and also claimed the winner’s sash in several GP’s and World Cup Qualifiers. Baloubet du Rouet is also famous as the sire of VDL Bubalu, Palloubet d’Halong and Chaman among others. Continuing in the line is Nurzeus, a stallion that sired many good jumpers such as Midnight Madness, Zippo, Ennio, etc.

Carrera’s dam is an international 1.45m jumper, and is a halfsister to the famous international jumper stallion Tinka’s Boy, winner of many GP’s and World Cup Qualifiers plus the final with Markus Fuchs.

In addition to approval in the Zangersheide and Oldenburg Studbooks, Carrera was approved by the KWPN and the Hannoveraner Verband.

Palmares

Carrera shines under Jur Vrieling. Within a very short period of time, the dynamic pair jumped at the highest level winning the Grand Prix of De Wolden; a 1.50m in Bonheiden and a 1.45m in Oldenburg. With the Dutch team Carrera won the Nations Cup in Drammen. In addition were other notable placings: 2nd in the GP Oldenburg, 3rd in the GP Wiener Neustadt and 4th in the GP Maastricht.

Offspring

Carrera’s first offspring are now turning 6 years old. It is becoming obvious that he passes on attitude and scope, and excellent jumping technique. The first results are in: Garbarant R Reserve Champion of the 5-year olds; Cara van de Tojope Hoeve Z was 3rd in the final of the Open Scandinavian Championship for 4-year olds; Cuba Libre W Z passed her IBOP test with a top score of 84 points becoming Champion in 2016 of the 4 - 7-year old mares at the CK Friesland.

Hadera CJS was Champion of the Open North Netherlands Championships in free jumping (ONNK). The 3-year old Herzliya was sold for Ä 35.250 as a 3-year-old at the Brightwells Elite Sales.
