Copias is a 1998 Holsteiner gelding, by Calido I out of a Caletto I mare.
We bought Copias in Germany as a two-year old. He has simply been the sweetest horse a person could own. He started his career running in the cool, green field of northern Germany. He has won and placed in many Grand Prixs in the U.S. and continues to show at that level. He is truly a member of our family.
Top sire with sophisticated scores for type and performance
A 1991 proven noble grey Holstein stallion of outstanding quality, beyond any doubt. Calido I belongs with his offspring's lifetime winnings of more than 2.6 million Euro to the best Holsteiner stallions of the present. Calido's offspring is well-known for their type, jumping ability and technique as well as for their rideability.

Calido I's pedigree includes Cor de la Bryère, Cottage Son xx and Ramzes AA, each three times, as well as two times Anblick xx. The granddam Kollet (by Roman) produced six dressage and show jumping horses, which are all successful up to advanced (S) level. Dam's sire Coriander was a multiple sire and won several times in advanced (S) dressage classes. Calido I was jumping winner at his stallion performance test and won 25 tests for young show jumpers, including the qualifier for the final of the Bundeschampionat. Also his full brother Calido II, who died early, was successful at advanced (S) level. He originates from the line 5064, which is also known for stallions such as Little Rock Gold/Jenny Zoer, Ukato/Willem Greve and Paramount.
