| Oldenburg Premium Stallion and Best Jumper Stallion 2006 |
A noble, master jumper made for better things. Cevin Costner makes a statement with his clear type, unmistakable attitude towards performance and good gaits. His jumping is something to see when it comes to technique, bascule and ability. Always uphill, this pure Holstein bred athlete convinces with the best scores, also for gaits. Cevin Costner was awarded the I-h Premium at the Oldenburg licensing in 2006 and was thus the best Oldenburg jumper stallion of that year. The convincing quality of his pedigree has been proved many times. At his 30-day test in Prussendorf he placed among the very best with a total score of 8.34. And with a final score with emphasis on jumping of 8.60 as well as an 8.03 in the dressage sector, his versatility was underlined. The Evaluation Committee gave him a score of 9.0 or higher seven times – and even a 10.0 for his ability to jump and character! He took his 70-day test in 2008, receiving very high scores in all areas and finishing third overall (Performance Class I). His versatile talent is worthy of special mention, especially since multi-talented horses have become seldom these days. In sport he has mainly been groomed for show jumping and has won novice (A), elementary (L) and medium (M) level tests for young jumpers. In 2009 he placed in the Bundeschampionat in Warendorf.
Cevin Costner's progeny are particularly strong types and strong movers with good size and good looks. Numerous foals from his first crops were awarded premiums and some of them were sold for very high prices at the various auctions.
His sire, Chico’s Boy, managed the feat of not only winning the licensing event but his stallion performance test as well. His first foal crops were brilliant; they won numerous premiums and many were auction candidates in different Verband auctions. His dam, Callinda Z, a successful sport mare as well, also produced other successful show jumpers such as Seicalla (by Seidon). She is by the gray Holstein stallion, Calvin by Caletto II, whose bloodlines are 100 % identical with those of the famous jumper-maker, Cantus, who is by Caletto I. During his first year of breeding in Rhineland-Pfalz-Saar, Calvin sired classy horses such as his licensed son, Casi (private stallion Rhineland-Pfalz, USA). Later, in Ireland and especially in Zangersheide, he enhanced his breeding reputation. With Leuthen I and Ahorn Z, significant performance-makers are also found in the further generations of his pedigree. Cevin Costner comes from the successful Holstein mare line 5625 which is known for numerous advanced (S) level show jumpers as well as the licensed stallions Cartano (private stallion NL), Gastronom Z and Waterkant. Cartano, for example, is out of Sören von Rönne's successful jumper mare, E-Dream Girl.
