Origin: Corlando’s sire Calypso II descends from the legendary Anglo-Norman, Cor de la Bryere. He is quoted as being “one of the few genuinely impressive stallions of German competition horse breeding and one of the greatest Holstein foundation sires following the 2nd World War .” He is highly integrated in the pedigrees of some of the best Hanoverians and Holsteiners, exceeding 200 daughters, numerous approved sons, and countless performance horses. His impressive stature and kind temperament were prepotent in his progeny, the most influential being Calypso I & II, Calando, Caletto I &II, Cicero, and Corrado I. Calypso II is clearly his father’s son and is accredited for producing jumping horses of insurmountable scope and ability. He produced Contender, whom was the undisputed winner of the 1987 Adelheidsdorf stallion performance test and the sire of MANY approved sons. Interestingly, both Contender and Corlando carry Ramiro in their dam’s pedigree! Ramiro is another legend seemingly needing no introduction. As with Cor de la Bryere, he is seen in the pedigrees of today’s most accomplished breeding and performance horses. It is often said among breeders that “you can never have too much Ramiro.” He was a successful international showjumper under rider Fritz Ligges and stamped his get with the finest of jumping abilities. It is not to go un-mentioned, however, that he was also a fine sire of dressage horses. Rinaldo, one of Ramiro’s 70+ approved sons, sired a dressage Derby winner in 1987, as well as Corlando’s dam Navenna.
History/Performance: Corlando's performance scores designate him a Class I stallion, with above average individual scores, including a highly regarded 10 for jumping ability undersaddle! succeeded at the Bundeschampionate twice, as well in show jumping to S-level(4'11). He has a total of 3,650 € in winnings. As per the FN in 2002 he had a breed value of 109 in dressage and 127 in jumping with a high security level of 92%. In 2004 The United States Equestrian Federation ranked Corlando 6th out of 4,000 for production of successful jumping offspring in the US, only to be supersceeded by such giants as Voltaire, Burgraff and a few other top stallion.
While in Germany, Corlando stood the majority of his breeding career in the Oldenburg region, specifically at the prestigious Breeding Station Vorwerk where he was acknowledged as "A Holsteiner in splendid form--first class in line, elegance and type. Corlando possesses dynamic, effective movement and demonstrated exceptional class in his first jumping tests. He achieved performance class one at his stallion performance test at Adelheidsdorf in 1988. Though his pedigree is heavily weighted toward jumping, he also has a high blood reservoir for dressage capability. His grand dam Tabelle, is a full sister to Salmei, the dam of Olympic winner and World Champion, Granat. Grandsire Rinaldo influenced the appearance of Corlando to a high degree and also in dressage points. Rinaldo produced the 1987 Dressage Derby winner, "Robby." Corlando's ancestors have contributed the full array of genes for success in both disciplines. He was twice Bundeschampionate and a successful show jumper to S-level. Since 1994 his offspring are regularly successful at Federal Championships in jumping and dressage. At the Vechta Special, a Corlando offspring out of an Inschallah mare tied for first place."
Breeding Record: Corlando's years as a sire have put him in a class of his own, for his consistent production of well respected jumping and dressage horses. To date, Corlando has produced 5 approved sons, Confederate, Creskando, Conners ( Loverboy), Corrado G, and Marabet Farm's Carry On. As well he has produced 59 broodmares, 6 of which have State Premium titles. He has 260 German offspring; 166 are registered show horses, with 2 winning in S-level dressage and 7 in S-level jumping. In 2000, Corlando was listed by the German Riding-Sport Federation (FN) as 15th of the TOP 100 stallions for production of winning offspring in jumping, and by the end of 2002 these offspring had combined winnings of 254,000 Euros. Internationally, a Swedish Corlando son “Cor de Son” was the 2002 FEI World Breeding Jumping Champion of 5 Year Olds under rider James Paterson (Aus) . His approved son Loverboy stood in the US and was a Grand Prix jumper under rider Eliza Shuford with earnings exceeding $75,000. A Corlando daughter, Calculated Risk, competed in Florida at USET Prix St. George and I-1 under rider Norah Dombrowski, in an effort to qualify for the Pan American Games. She was also the 1998 AHS site champion at her inspection, with a score of 7.5% and high score mare at her performance test scoring 7.56%. Calculated Risk’s first foal by Werbellin was named inspection champion at the 2003 Hilltop AHS inspection and her 2007 filly by Pablo was named Top Filly at Hedgeland Farm's AHS inspection. She continued to produce exceptional offspring until her retirement in 2017. To date Corlando has produced and continues to produce, countless, exceptional, young athletes for Triad Farm, as well as for equestrian sport.
