Casalido is a charming and competitive jumper and a carbon copy of his sire, Casall. His fantastic canter and incredible jumping technique, as well as his natural ability over the fences will guarantee that this young stallion will be very popular. In 2014, Casalido finished a very good 30-days-test in Redefin, where he proved his capacity for jumping with high scores of 9.5. He shows fast reflexes, as well as great manners at the jump. At his first show in May 2015, he won a 1.10 m youngster class at age four. In 2016, Casalido qualified for the "Bundeschampionat" with Hendrik and Gerd multiple times. Gerd won three qualifications in a row with him and was runner-up in the small final in Warendorf. Furthermore, he impressed with his first crop: the Oldenburg-International association awarded him 1c-main premium for his great foals. Pedigree Casalido’s jumping potential is in his genes: His sire Casall, ridden by Rolf Göran Bengtsson (SWE), is one of the top fixture in the international jumping arena. He won numerous big prizes, world-cup jumping competitions, was successful at the Olympic Games in London, at the European Championships in Herning (DEN), 4th at the World Equestrian Games in Caen (FRA) and won several times at the Global Champion Tour. In 2014, this combination was the most successful pair in the world. In 2016, Rolf-Göran Bengtsson and Casall claimed both the Longines Global Champions Tour Grand Prix of Doha win and the prestigious 2016 Champion of Champions title in a magnificent showdown in Qatar. Casalido's dam, Kyara, is a full sister to Bella Donna's dam, Orlis I. Bella Donna herself was very successful in international championships with Meredith Michaels-Beerbaum. She won the highest prize money in Germany in 2013. Furthermore, Kyara is full sister to the two approved stallions Charisma I and II. She has also produced Limonchello NT who is successful in international 1.60 m classes with Ludger Beerbaum and Christian Kukuk. The dam sire, Calido l, is considered one of the best Holsteiner stallions at this time, with his offspring's winnings of more than 3 million Euro. More than 70 Calido I sons were approved, and nearly 300 are showing successfully in the big sport. In addition to type, jumping ability and technique, Calido I is also known for his rideability. Three generations back is Calypso II, who stood stud in Holstein for several years but than put his stamp on the Hanoverian breeding. The Calypso I-daughter Ribecka, a "nearly full-sister" of Casalido's second dam Verona I, produced the top sires Acord I, II and III. She became grandmother of the brothers Acobat I, II and III through her daughter Tschiba (by Capitol I). This line produced more than 50 approved stallions. Among them are Aktionär, Avero, Bavaria Luchs, Burggraf (NL), Catango Z, Fra Diavolo, Freeman, Lady’s King, San Riant and Silverstone. Also part of the family are the international jumpers Bella Donna (Meredith Michaels-Beerbaum), Lord Arico (Wolfgang Brinkmann) and the jumping Bundeschampion in 2001 Christopher 7 (Jörne Sprehe).
