He was a very successful Nation`s Cup jumper in Germany in the 80`s and was ranked 5th of the top sires of show jumpers by the World Breeding Federation for Sport Horses in 1999. On his dam`s side, Cedar traces to the Thoroughbred Marlon. Marlon was a very good producer of event horses in the 60`s and 70`s. He also shows up on the dam side of many of the most successful jumpers, including individual olympic silver medalist Calvaro V.
