2007. 165cm. Dark Brown by Sir Donnerhall x Pion x Elcaro. The KWPN Approved stallion Cadans combines the most successful modern breeding lines for dressage with some of the most established sources of dressage talent in The Netherlands to provide the ideal package for a mare owner seeking a proven genetic source of dressage talent.
Cadans’ sire the Reserve World Champion Young Dressage Horse and Bundeschampion of 2006 Sir Donnerhall , has been described as one of the ‘Top Young Guns’ of dressage breeding is currently top of the FB list of breeding stallions with a breeding value of 171 already to his name. With a pedigree that includes close up both Sandro Hit and Donnerhall who was for many years the undisputed champion of the WBFSH Stallion lists – not only through his own great international success under saddle but also through those of his many internationally successful progeny – his top gun status is becoming increasingly obvious as time goes by, With and 70 graded sons and many successful representatives in Young Horses classes already to his name he is clearly following in the footsteps of Sandro Hit whose graded sons now number over 90 worldwide and whose position in the top 5 list of dressage stallions seems assured for years to come.
Even with Donnerhall still holding his own in the WBFSH lists (he is currently one of the highest placed deceased stallion with progeny still competing) the importance of Sir Donnerhall’s dam line to the mix cannot be ignored. The Contenance line brings with it some very powerful movers in Freiherr, Farnese and Moltke I lightened by the Thoroughbred blood of Grundyman XX to ensure that quality also comes through.
Cadans’ own dam Tomathika contributes not only generations of dedicated KWPN sports horse breeding through her great grand-dam the dressage Keur mare B Sympathika plus a host of dressage talent through Elcaro and Ferro, but also the highly regarded qualities of the grey star Pion (sire of the internationally successful Hungarian dressage stallion Aktion) whose sire Abgar was a British born Thoroughbred who became one of the first imported improvers (lighteners and modernisers) of the Dutch Warmblood breed. Pion’s dam Irma La Douce was one of the most highly graded mares of her era which again confirms the strength in depth of the dressage talent in this pedigree.
Imported in 2012 he has made a big break into the competition world with scores upto 87% in the 5 year old and 6 year old young horse classes. In 2013 he was Northern Regional Champion in all four classes; Novice Open, Elementary Open, Novice Open Freestyle and Elementary Open Freestyle ridden by Lara Dyson and trained by Charlotte Dujardin, Rhett Bird and Becky Moody.
