Charming Boy, Champion Stallion of the 2005 Springpferdezuchtverband Oldenburg-International approval, is a modern Holsteiner stallion in a noble bay color with good type, outstanding jumping talent and elastic movements with lots of impulsion. His sire, Contendro, won his stallion performance test in 2000 in Adelheidsdorf. Charming Boy's granddam is the dam of a young jumper stallion named Curly Sue by Caletto who now wins medium level/category B tests. The granddam, Parabella by Silbersee, was a successful show jumper herself up to medium level/category A and is also the granddam of Cherry Pie by Coriano. Caletto I was an extremely successful, international show jumper under Dr. Michael Rüping. They were members of the bronze medal winning German team at the European Championships in Hickstead in 1983 and Caletto I was the most successful German horse in Nations Cups that year. They were the highest winning pair at the CSIO in Geneva and also took first and other high places in the Grand Prix in Aachen, Switzerland and Calgary. During his career as a show jumper he won more than 100,000 DM in prizes – more than any other German breeding stallion before in those days. Charming Boy's grandsire, Silbersee, was also internationally successful under Dr. Michael Rüping, winning World Cups and Nations Cups. In 1985 they won the German Championships, in 1987 the Derby in Hamburg and also received the "Sport Horse of the Year" award twice. By the time his career in sport ended, he had won around 450,000 DM in total. Charming Boy did an excellent job at his 30 day test in Neustadt/Dosse and received the fantastic score of 9.38 in the partial index for jumping with a 10.00 three times (aptitude, manner and ability) and an 8.25 for rideability.
