A beautiful, extremely well bred filly, born in March 2010. Her sire Cassini I needs no introduction, he is ranked 7th on the German FN standings for 2007 with an index of 158. Cassini comes from Holstein line 318 D1, where all of the great names in Holstein breeding are lined up like 'pearls on a string' – Cassini I, the legendary Landgraf and Ramiro Z who was the sire of Ratina Z which promises to pass on especially good herediatry traits. He was internationally successful under Franke Sloothaak and sired a great number of highly successful show jumpers.

Her damline consists of Cassini I - Contender - Landgraf I - Calypso I - Ramiro. She comes from stamm 776 and directly from one of the best parts of it, her grand dam is the dam of super stallion and sire Lordanos! She has exceptional conformation, a very modern, refined and elegant filly. Her full sister was one of the top mares as a 3 year old at the holstein mare performance tests and was sold to Brazil.

At the 2007 Holstein Stallion licensing, out of 84 colts presented to the Commission, 19 were by Cassini I or II. Her Dam sire Contender had 10 representatives.

Diva has a lovely nature, very sweet and willing. She is a sensitive but sensible mare who responds well to training as she just wants to please. We plan to put her in foal as a 3 year old as her genetics and presence are to valuable to not continue to have them at the stud. After that we will return her to the saddle as we cant wait to have her out competing!


Maternal sire "Chambertin" twice won the final qualification of the Bundeschampionate and was the Holsteiner regional champion. He is the sire of many top international jumpers such as the Olympic mount Cedric (Laura Krat), Chacco-Blue and Asian show jumper Can Do. The talented super star Catoki is by Chambertin's sire Cambridge.
Cash, a close relative of AcoladeSire ACODETTO: A young stallion, born in 2001 he is already making his mark. He has had a daughter who was reserve champion mare in the finals at Elmshorm. He had 6 Daughters in the finals. Acodetto's offspring by this important Acorado son have become very desireable. A 2 ½ year son sold at stallion approvals in 2007 for euros 70,000.
Acodetto scored 9.44 out of 10, a 10 in free-jumping, and a 9 for canter, scoring 1st at his 30 day stallion test in 2004.
His sire Acorado I won 1st place in his 100 day test, 149 in jumping and 127 (4) in dressage. Before his early death, Acorado sired 8 approved stallions and 4 State Premium mares. Acorado's sire Acord II won his 100 day test with dressage scores of 138 and jumping of 148. With 38 approved stallions and 38 State Premium mares and with 430 offspring in sport, Acord II is acknowledged as one of the most influential Holsteiner sires. 2 Approved sons from 1st foal crop. 2 sons approved in 2007, Acocerto and Accado.

Acolade arrived at the stud toward the end of December 2010. She has had a stunning foal to Cassin II. She is currently in foal to Clinton II. See our Stallions page for a video clip of Cassin II and information on Clinton II.

This Holsteiner mare has competed up until 6 years of age (height of 1.30 - 1.35m), with excellent results in young horse classes. Ridden by an amateur beating professional riders! Cold Play 2 was held in high regard for her scope and carefulness. She is lovely modern type of mare, with lovely paces and movement. Our thanks go to Jenny McIntyre and her scout who did a superb job in locating this mare. Here at Hokonui Sport Horses we would thoroughly recommend Jenny to anyone looking to import a horse. She is so great to work with, patient and extremely thorough and knowledgeable.

In young horse classes Cold Play competed with scores in the high 8s, which is extraordinary! Her sire Colman is highly sought after in Germany and has produced over 15 licensed stallions. His sire Carthago was successful in international competitions and is rated second on the WBFSH sire jumping ranking list. Her full brother Eurocommerce Dubai has been bought for Gerco Schroder to compete internationally. He completed his 30 day stallion test with a phenomenal jumping score of 9.06!!

Henrietta has recently been sold, but will stay at the stud. 8 year old mare by Corlando with an exceptional jumping technique. Very clean with sharp knees and soft behind. She didnt compete much through no fault of her own, due to her owner having a baby. She has had one foal (Corofino II) and one foal to Douglas VDL.
