As a three years old Elvaro was invited for the KWPN performancetest and now he stands out in the young horse-competitions. With his rider Niels Nanning he won several qualifications of the Dutch GMB-competition and he showed his potential in the final of the Dutch championship (VION-Cup). His sire Calvaro Z has participated in all the big Championships and Olympics with his riders Jos Lansink and both Michael and John Whitaker. Furthermore Calvaro Z has become a well-known sire of Grand Prix-jumpers, such as Katchina Mail, Night Train, Ralvesther, Riviera and Callas Sitte Z. Elvaro is bred out of the mare April Love M, who jumped on 1.35m-level. She is sired by the foundation sire Heartbreaker. With Peter Geerink Heartbreaker was placed fourth in the Grand Prix of Aken and even more he proved himself as a breedingstallion. Well performing offspring of Heartbreaker are Romanov, Action Breaker, Quasimodo van de Molendreef, Haertthago and Dejavu. Granddam Utanja is also dam of the 1.35m-jumper Burberry des Terdrix (s.Cardento). In the third generation we see the mare Montanja, she is an half-sister of the international Grand Prix-stallion Londontimes (s.Goodtimes). With Kevin Olsmeijer he gained high placings in Grand Prix and Nations Cup. This damline produced other international showjumpers like Ultimo (s.Heartbreaker) of Annelies Vorsselmans and Tag Heuer (s.Burggraaf) of Geir Gulliksen.
The beautiful stallion Elvaro combines the scoope of Calvaro Z with the technique of Heartbreaker.
