Caballus Stud Farm

Caballus Stud farm.

 Caballus Studfarms was started in 2001 , and is situated in the rural area of Onewhero, 40 minutes south west of Auckland City, in the North Island of New Zealand.

The farm consists of 120 acres of Flat to rolling countryside,, and is adjacent to over 300 acres of land suitable for exercise and pleasure hacking. Much of the farm is either hedge-rowed or surrounded by plantings of shelter trees, which combined with excellent grass growth and large paddocks surrounded by Gallagher Equi-fence provide a safe and sheltered environment for the raising of young horses.

Utilising the best available Holstein and hanoverian bloodlines, Caballus’s goal is to breed top class showjumping sporthorses , at all times with Grand Prix success in mind.

In December 2008 Caballus imported the 17hh grey stallion, Cralvin Z, who is registered with the Zangerscheide studbook. Cralvin will be available by both frozen and fresh semen to outside mares.

Cralvin Z is by the fantastic Crown Z (Carthago x Ratina Z) and out of the mare Callas Z (Calvin Z x Ruege Z) whose bloodlines go back to the foundation stallions Cor de la Bryere, Roman and Ladykiller.

His Grand Dam, Ratina Z, was often referred to as the showjumping horse of the 20th century.

His Sire, Crown Z, was 6th in the 5 year old FEI World Breeding Championships. Additionally Carthago’s lines go back to the famous Cor de la Bryere through his dam’s sire Calando I, making Cralvin Z a double cross of the great Cor.
