The stud farm Haras des Coudrettes has announced on Facebook that their top stallioin Carinjo HDC by Cascavelle/Landgraf will be retired from the sport. After his victory in the five-star event in Antwerpen the stallion sustained a slight injury. In order to do his age justice, the stallion is 16 years old, the stud farm decided to retire Patrice Delaveau’s horse, who is now to focus on his breeding career.
The Holsteiner stallion had numerous successes in five-star competitions, among them events in Chantilly, Stuttgart, Los Angeles, Paris and Oslo. Before Delaveau took over his ride the horse was ridden by Thomas Voß, under whom he was placed second at the Grand Prix of Aachen
