Sire: AQUILAN CALYPSO was an elegant, well-proportioned stallion with a calm temperament and generous attitude. He was a hard-working guy his whole life, jumping in over 100 Grands Prix. His jumping pedigree is flawless, combining AHORN Z with the performance mare W-CAMBRIA, a successful show jumper in her own right. Her sire, CALYPSO I, sired at least 20 approved stallions with the Holsteiner Verband and is said to be one of the most significant sires and most uniform producers of elegant performance horses. Ahorn Z became an international jumping legend with the Dutch team competing in many World Cups and Grand Prix. He is famous for producing international show jumpers and breeding stallions, including ACORD I, ACORD II, and ACORD III. Aquilan Calypso produces foals that move with the fluidity and cadence that would suit a career in dressage, but they have also been both eager and talented jumping through the chute. His babies are sweet, kind and easy to train.

Dam: DONATELLA's pedigree on the top side goes back to DONNERHALL. Donnerhall's talent was apparent right from the start when he scored 131.92 to be second in his performance test at Adelheidsdorf in 1984. His competition career is the stuff of legend. He represented the highest combination of breeding and sports successes. His sports career was full of pinnacles: 1986 honoured as DLG champion stallion, at the WEG at The Hague in 1994 with his lifelong rider Karin Rehbein he won team gold and in freestyle the bronze medal. This result was repeated in 1997 at the European Championships at Verden with gold in the team and bronze in the individual. In 1998, Donnerhall and Karin Rehbein returned from the WEG at Rome with team gold and an outstanding fourth place in the individual results.

Notes: AVANT L'HEURE is an exceptional filly and was a futurity winner in 2016. She is an amazing mover, smart in the chute, and a high-level prospect for dressage or jumpers.
