Chicardo was Champion of the 2007 Holsteiner licensing earning 52 bonits and was Reserve Champion of the German FN authorized 70-day Sporthorse Stallion Performance Test (2011) where he received a rare perfect 10 for character and 9.5 for jumping with no gait lower than 8 (128.58 total score). He was Reserve Champion of the 2007 Young Jumper Championship Mid-West Finals and competed up to Grand Prix in showjumping in 2012 and 2013 with Daniel Zilla before retiring to focus on breeding full time. In statistics compiled by the AHHA evaluating Holsteiner stallion production quality, Chicardo leads the list with an astonishing 83% Premium foals (of 24 inspected), with average foal bonits of 8/8, leading both movement and conformation of all 58 qualifying Holsteiner stallions licensed in North America in 2010.
A leading producer of all around sporthorses, Chicardo has over thirty-five (35) USEF competition recorded offspring with at least one actively competing in each of the four show USEF sanctioned disciplines (dressage, jumping, eventing, and hunters) as of October 2014. At the 2013 North American Stallion 70-day test, Chicardo was represented successfully by not one but two sons; both approved for breeding bringing his total to three approved sons.
Chicardo’s sire, Clinton, was a top international jumper and ranked among the top WBF jumper sires of the world. Ramiro, Cor de la Bryere, Corrado and Capitol I appear prominently in Chicardo’s blood. Dam Mycarda also produced three licensed sons as testament to the quality of his motherline: the “Lord” stamm 1298.
Chicardo stamps his foals with lovely heads, great movement, superior jumping technique and the desire to please their owners/riders. This elegant modern stallion combines the extreme athletic quality of his sire Clinton I with a gentle temperament and rideability for mare owners that want to breed and raise their foals at home.
He is licensed AHS,AHHA, GOV, and RPSI. Fresh and Frozen semen shipped world-wide.
