Hermoso Z’s sire Canto descends from the same motherline as the international stallions and performers: Catoo, Romanov, Budweiser, Westmintser, and Ariness Van't Wolkerink. Canto was the champion of the Holsteiner Verbrand licensing in 2004. Canto has proven himself as a breeding stallion. His most notable products icnlud GK Casper (Canto x Quantum), winner of the 2019 Toronto World Cup Grand Prix, 2nd of the 1m60 Grand Prix of the City of Bordeaux, and Calafrieda (Canto x Laval), probably the best 7-year-old mare in Europe, winner in CSIO5 * in Dublin
His dam Una Bella descends from direct damline of Chellano Z, Corrado I and multiple international performers. Una herself competed up to the grand prix level with Christoph Schroder. Una is a dreamboat to ride and despite her talent can also be ridden by novice riders. She is the horse in the barn everyone wishes they owned. Her sister’s son King Diamond MS at 3 years old sold for 70k euros at the Fences Auction to a European investor.
Hermoso Z will finish up on the taller side like his mother 17-17.1H. He has an exceptional presence, modern and ultra leggy appearance, correct conformation and docile disposition. With his movement he could be an exceptional prospect for upper level jumping, equitation and FEI eventing.
