Once more Cardento VDL proved himself in the Swedish championships for young horses as a progenitor of top show jumpers. The extreme high numbers of Cardento offspring placed in the championships was remarkable.
Champion of the 7 year olds was Twiggen (Cardento x Gibson), ridden by Jens Wickstrom. In 4th place came Thriller P (Cardento x Lucky Light), ridden by Lisen Bratt Fredricson, and 6th place was for another Cardento offspring: Carpe Diem af Pan, ridden by Victoria Almgren.
Also the free jumping championship for 3 year olds had a Cardento offspring as champion: Care for Love, who received a convincing 9,1. Reserve champion was Lovely Boy (Sheraton x Landlord), who was rewarded with 8,8.
In the 5 year old class reserve title was for Cornelia (s.Corland), ridden by Victoria Almgren. 5th place was for Carduzo (Cardento x Landlord), ridden by Jenny Berglund. A very nice 6th was for the approved stallion and remarkable jumper Corporal VDL, (Cardento x Grosso Z), ridden by Magnus Osterland. Other offspring of Cardento took 7th, 10th, 13th and 15th place.
Reserve champion of the 4 year old show jumpers was Al Cendo (Al Cantino x Cardento), ridden by Olof Smith. Candlelight K (Cardento x Everest) took 5th place, ridden by Stina Lilje and 6th place was for VDL Stud-stallion Camillo VDL (Douglas x Baloubet du Rouet), ridden by Magnus Osterlund. Cardine F (Cardento x Dammen) took 11th place, ridden by Jenny Ostberg.
