Cassini II x Chellano Z


Dam, Curios Z, is also mother to Casuality Z – the 2007 born full brother to our Challenge Z – who currently show jumps to 1.50 level under Judy Ann Melchior. Casuality Z showed his class in 2015, winning the 8 year old class at Aachen.  As a young horse Casuality Z made it to the finals of the FEI World Breeding Championship at Zangersheide no less than 3 times. In 2012 he was placed 2nd, in 2013 11th and in 2014 with Christian Ahlmann, Casuality Z finished 2nd.

Grand Dam, Ocay, also produced the stallion Carige, who currently competes in Germany to 1.45m level.


Sire, Cassini II, full brother to Cassini I. Approved in 1996 with a high jumping index and placed third in his jumping ability with high scores for character and temperament. Unfortunately due to a tendon injury he did not compete in sport so it took him longer to prove himself, but is now in great demand because of the talent and quality of his offspring.

Many Cassini II offspring qualified themselves for the 2005 Bundeschampionart in Warendorf. At the 2005 approvals two of his sons were approved. For the price of 230,000 euros the approved son, Carmarque went to Denmark. In 2004 the best jumping horse Caress, a mare, went for the top prize 105,000 euro to a well known sport stable in Germany.

Wisma, the well bred mother of Cassini I and II also had a full sister to these two stallions who produced the approved stallion, Lovari by Lasino I. Another daughter from Wisma, Mira by Lansing is also a stallion mother producing Cassaro by Coronado.

Top competitors by Cassini II include Steve Guerdat’s Athens finalist, Isovlas Olympic (pictured right), Alois Pollmann-Schweckhorst’s Casello, Chatwin ridden formerly by the Swiss, Christoph Barbeau and now for Brazil by Alvaro de Miranda Neto, Pikeur Calanda with Franz-Josef Dahlmann and Peter Wylde’s Inken.
