|Esprit (Ster, Prestatie)|
Carrera is a striking and interestingly bred horse from a combination of two Olympic stallions.
Sire, Cardento, won three Silver medals under Peter Eriksson at the Olympics, the World Championship and the European Championship. As a sire Cardento is a producer of international jumping offspring who participate at European and World Championships and the Olympic Games.
Grand sire, Baloubet du Rouet, was Olympic Champion with Rodrigo Pessoa; a three-time winner of World Cup Finals; and also claimed the winner’s sash in several GP’s and World Cup Qualifiers. Baloubet du Rouet is also famous as the sire of VDL Bubalu, Palloubet d’Halong and Chaman among others. Continuing in the line is Nurzeus, a stallion that sired many good jumpers such as Midnight Madness, Zippo, Ennio, etc.
Carrera’s dam is an international 1.45m jumper, and is a half-sister to the famous international jumper stallion Tinka’s Boy, winner of many GP’s and World Cup Qualifiers plus the final with Markus Fuchs.
Carrera shone under Jur Vrieling with whom he was successful at the highest level. Carrera started strong with the winning of the Grand Prix Vestfold. Before he won the Grand Prix of Wolden, a 1.50m class in Bonheiden and in Oldenburg. With the Dutch team Carrera won the Nations Cup in Drammen. Carrera unfortunately had to end his career prematurely due to an injury.

Along with his outstanding pedigree, Carrera passes his great jumping qualities on to his offspring. They stand out for the way that they jump – they perform and they are wanted. Talents like the KWPN approved stallions Kallmar VDL and Kincsem and international jumpers like Gold Finger, Genesis HB and the very talented Glock’s Novellist (with Gerco Schröder) make Carrera the promising sire that he is.Gold Finger already won the GP’s of De Peelbergen and Maastricht. Genesis HB and Galax VDL are classified at 1.50m level and Cinderella Z jumps at 1.45m level already.
Youngster like Esi la Luna, Inea O.A., Inajottie VDM , VDL Imar and Joselinde L.A.T . perform with appealing results in young horse classes. Jucatan finished in 8th place at the national championships for 5-year-olds and Kalista O placed 4th in the championship for 4-year-olds.
In previous years Garbarant RT became reserve champion of the 5-year-old jumping horses and in the final of the Open Scandinavian championship for 4-year olds there was a third place for Cara vd Tojope Hoeve Z.
