Cadogen’s “look at me” attitude gets him noticed by all. He is a beautiful mover and a great jumper with an extremely powerful hind end. He has incredible natural balance, lightness and rhythm, making him very easy to ride. He is forward thinking and bold with a self-confidence that will make him a top competitor in the show ring. Bred to be successful in the hunter/jumper or dressage arena, we expect him to give all these qualities to his offspring. Cadogen’s dam traces to Ladykiller top and bottom. His dam’s sire Loutano, competed internationally in dressage. His sire traces to Merano. The M-line Holsteiners were known for their forward thinking attitudes and competitiveness. They were successful to the Olympic level in Dressage, Eventing and Show Jumping. They are horses that are ideal in today’s competitive environment because they have plenty of substance but enough go, stamina and desire to win to make them great partners. Because he carries these old, proven bloodlines, he is the perfect outcross for your C-line mare and should also cross well with thoroughbred and mares from other warmblood pedigrees.
Cadogen began his show career in 2016 competing in the baby green and 2'9" hunters. He was never out of the ribbons and always earned a piece of the hack. He was even the hack winner in Charleston in July. The hunter judges were very complimentary of his rhythm and temperament in the ring. He finished the year moving over to the jumpers and in one two week show he moved up from the 0.85m jumpers to the 1.15m jumpers. 2017 saw him complete his performance requirements with both the AHHA and ISR/Old registries. He qualified for the YJC 7yo finals competing up to 1.30m and ribboning in Mini Prix as well. He is very bold and agressive to the jumps and we expect him to progress up the levels quickly.
