more suited for dressage. He was trained first by H. Peter Mohr,

then went on to show under Wolfgang Schade for the

Holsteiner Verband, through International Grand Prix.

has been one of Germany's top stallions, producing horses that have excelled in both advanced dressage and jumping competitions. In the 2001 WBFSH rankings of top jumping sires, he was ranked #5 and was the youngest, at 18 years old, in the top ten. With more than 100 offspring, known for their astonishing movement and jumping ability, Caretino has 18 approved sons and 114 daughters, of which 12 became German State Premium. Caretino was one of four to be accredited as an approved KWPN stallion without having been presented at the Stallion Show nor evaluated on the constitutional requirements of the KWPN.


He won the 1998 Holstein State Show Jumping Championship

that, in turn, qualified him for the Federal German Championships

in Mannheim and won the event. Shortly afterwards he became a

successful international jumper with rider Bo Kristoffersen. Their

efforts included 40 placings in national and international

competitions, and as part of the Danish Nation's Cup team at Gera in

1992, they brought home a fourth place finish.

By 2001, 12 of Caretino's offspring had competed at the international

level including AK Caridor Z (Jos Lansink), Crocodile Dandy

(Alison Firestone), Chandra (Sören von Rönne), Toyzrus

(Jill Henselwood) and Ballerina 124 (Marcus Merschformann).


His is son Camirez (Marcus Merschformann) won the 2001

Hamburg Derby, one of the most demanding events in the

international circuit. In dressage Caretino has also proven himself well with the approved sons Cheenook, Carpaccio and Cockney who are considered some of the best movers ever to have entered the sport.
