Caretino x Landlord
HOLST – 2004 – 1.67m – bay

The ideal combination of energy, elasticity and chic. He is the ideal stallion and certainly the best for mares with frame and/or bodywork to whom we want to bring the quality of fabrics and brilliance necessary for great sport.


Cooper’s elegance, willpower, flexibility and strong rocker won us over.

Caretino, a Holstein stalwart and a granddaughter of Landgraf, the same cross as Casall. His dam, who with Quidam produced the 1.60-metre winner Quinault. A grandmother who also gave Quidam Wella, the mother of Quaprice Bois Margot and Ornela. Through its paper, which still works with Cooper’s French saddle orgines, won us over.

The 1.45m-1.50m horse of a Ukrainian amateur rider impressed us with its ease of use. Last but not least, it’s his production that delights us. Only two living stallions have 3 horses in the world’s Top 100, and Cooper is one of them. Finally, Cooper had 2 representatives at the Tokyo Olympic Games.

This ascent to the highest level and the confirmation of his excellent fertility after three seasons at Servas led us to acquire Cooper. The SF Studbook shares our enthusiasm, having approved him at the end of 2019 in view of the quality of his production.

An excellent recruit for France, which now has a new world-beating stallion.

It’s vital for the sporting future of our national breeding program that we have such assets at our disposal.

Crossing advice

A very elegant, harmonious, high-legged horse with a very strong back, he is the archetype of the modern horse. It will be particularly attractive for mares with Quidam de Revel bloodlines and, more generally, mares with frame.

It gives a lot of verticality in the gaits and in the jump. The foals have chic and scope, long necks and long legs.
