Cassionato needs no introduction to those who are familiar with Showjumping, having had top ten placings at the CSI5* shows in Doha, St. Tropez and Cascais. He was part of the British team under Michael Whitaker at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games, 2015 European Championships and helped Britain win the CSIO5* Furusiyya FEI Nations Cups at La Baule, Rotterdam and Rome.
His sire is the popular stallion Cassini I who was successfully ridden by Bo Kristoffersen having placings in the Grand Prix of Münster, Kiel, Neumünster and Hamburg. They were also members of the winning Danish Nations Cup team in Helsinki and represented Denmark at the European Championships.
Cassini I also sired the 2006 WEG champion Cumano and Eurocommerce Berlin who contributed to the Dutch team gold medals at the 2006 World Equestrian Games and 2007 European Championships.
Cassionato’s dam, Perle Holstein is by the brilliant Selle Francais stallion Quidam de Revel who helped France win team bronze at the 1992 Barcelona Olympic Games, was sixth individually at the European Championships in La Baule in 1991 and had countless Grand Prix and Nations Cups success throughout his career.
Cassionato’s combination of excellent bloodlines and jumping talent makes him an obvious choice for breeders. He is available for fresh/chilled semen around his competition schedule with frozen semen also available. Semen is priced at £1000 + VAT with LFG.
Cassionato joined the Gornall Equestrian team in December 2018 and Jamie will be competing him in 2019.
