16.3H | 2016 | Holsteiner | Gelding
(GK Calucci x Sonnengirl B/Concept II)

Cadiz is a tall and handsome dark bay gelding foaled on 4/15/2016.  Naturally uphill, he has balanced and powerful movement that, given his Grand Prix level showjumper sire and dam, will translate into a powerful jump.  He is extremely friendly, kind, and enjoys all interactions with people.  He already loads with no discussion, travels easily by himself, and allows his feet to be trimmed with no difficulty.   He has a set of clean radiographs available for viewing. He is likely to finish in the 16.3hh range and is the ideal modern type for today’s showjumper ring.  He will be talented enough for a professional but easy enough for an amateur, making him an enjoyable and exciting prospect to bring along.

Cadiz’s sire, GK Calucci’s record speaks for itself.  He was a kind and amateur-friendly former Grand Prix Jumper.   His rideability, excellent temperament, and careful jumping technique made him a favorite among all of his riders and none of those attributes are a surprise given his sire, Calido I (known for producing rideability) and his damsire Acord II.  Cadiz’s dam Sonnengirl is a 17h imported st. pr. Holsteiner By Concept x Lordship fr. Stamm 3317. Sonnengirl showed in the YJC age classes winning several qualifiers, competed in the YJC Western Division finals as a 6 year old and was sold to Florida as a High A/O / Grand Prix prospect. A freak injury turned her into a broodmare before her mark could be made in the show ring. She has produced other foals by embryo transfer that can be seen at:
