STALLION OF THE MONTH OCTOBER: BERLIN (CASSINI I X CARETINO)
Oct 28, 2021
Year of birth: 1994
Berlin was a beautiful horse to the eye. With his beautiful appearance, long legs, strength, athletic ability and work-willing character, he was a very nice stallion to ride but also to look at.
Despite the fact that Berlin was only approved as a breeding stallion at the age of 9, he was still in 5th place in the HorseTelex World Ranking in 2020. Unfortunately, he also died that year of old age.
Just after Berlin was approved as a breeding stallion, in 2015 he already had 170 offspring that jumped in international sport and that year they together accounted for 694,090 euros. Thanks to the many successful offspring in international sport, he is also highly placed in the Breeding Rankings.
Berlin is approved in various studbooks, including: HOLSTEIN, HANNOVER, KWPN, SELLE FRANCAIS, OLDENBURG and SBS.
A number of toppers of offspring of this beautiful stallion include:
Fionapina Colada, Jumper, Zerlin M and Glock's Brilliant Berlin
