Clarksville had been on the experts’ radar already since the 2016 stallion grading pre-selection because of his extraordinary performance during the entire pre-selection and stallion grading procedure. Right from the start, he stood out for his typical Holsteiner appearance. Characterized by a clear and convincing masculine expression, this big-framed Cascadello I son always moves with an up-hill tendency thanks to his powerful hind leg action right from the very first step. Moreover, his locomotion stands out for being ground-covering, rhythmic, and supple. Having already produced the 2015 champion stallion Charleston from his first crop, Cascadello I presented another top quality son – Clarksville – at the 2016 stallion licensing. Clarksville’s second dam, Tanzstern, has already produced one show jumping offspring with achievements to S level by Nekton. The female line 318D2 counts among the most successful mare families in the Holsteiner breeding programme, growing particularly successful branches at various locations across the breeding area. The family branch of Clarksville is very closely related to Dutch Championship contender GLOCK’S Cognac Champblanc as well as to Camiro, successfully shown at the Hong Kong Olympics under Norway’s Tony Andre Hansen. The three-year-old stallion stands out for his powerful and exceedingly supple movement, demonstrating the same tremendous potential under the saddle right from the start. And Clarksville’s jumping ability leaves virtually nothing to be desired. His performance characterized by convincing strength, take-off, technique and carefulness gives reason for high expectations.
