Stallion Cormint. Cormint, reserve champion stallion of the 2004 Neumünster

He was one of the favorites due to his correct conformation and his sound
limbs, boasting high-quality basic paces with enormous impetus and
impulsion at the trot. He demonstrates his athleticism with super
technique and boundless ability over the jumps."

Catano by Cathalido, bred by Silver Creek Farms and owned by W. Peralta.

Lenz - Land of Kings (1st Horse to jump 7'2"), VDL London, and Saluut
(Sire of Saluut II and 2 Olympic champions). All these horses derive

Vinara's Colt, May 2013
2013 Update:In Holstein, Germany, Vinara (Quinar-Cassini
I-Latino) just gave birth to a beautiful colt (Casall-Quinar-Cassini I) on
4/19.He is a leggy bay with three
socks and a narrow blaze like his phenom jumper sire, Casall la Silla (2nd

exciting because no one has this combination and, given Quinar's passing
last year, he is of particular significance.
