Holstein Calvaro\'s sire Caletto I, is very famous for producing showjumpers. His mother Deka by Consul made breeding history as mother of five approved sons. Caletto I was one of the most successful horses in showjumping. Under Michael Rüping, Caletto I, jumped at international level and his best achievement was the individual bronze at the 1982 Dublin World Championships. After his show jumping career lasting five years, this son of Cor de la Bry?re had won more than 100.000,00 DM ? more than any other German breeding stallion before him. Calvaro?s dam Rixa, is a daughter of one of the most famous stallions in the world now a days, Capitol I. He produced Grand Prix jumpers and approved stallions like, Carthago Z., Cento, Cassini I, Capriol, Indoctro, Cumano etc.etc. If we follow Calvaro dam?s lineage back through we find the influential Farnese son Fantus to a beautifully bred Hanoverian female line that carries the blood of Sesam II and Goldfisch II that is one of the most influential bloodlines in Hannover. Calvaro himself has an impressive list of ?palmares?. In 1997 he was already National Dutch Champion with Jos Lansink and in the same year they won the Silver Medal Team at the European Championships. In 1998 they continued their fantastic career by becoming 9th at the World Equestrian Games and by finishing 2nd in the Grand Prix of Monterrey, 2nd in the Pulsar Crown and 2nd in the German Classics. In 1999 John Withaker was 2nd in the Grand Prix of Great Britain with Calvaro and in 2000 Calvaro had a fantastic 0,4 with the team in the Olympic Games of Sydney. Calvaro died in 2009 but is now proving himself as a producer of excellent showjumpers. His offspring are very athletic with great movements and show their sire?s good temperament. His 6 year old daughter, Katchina Mail, was the best 6 year old horse of France by winning the finals at Fontainebleau in 2004
