16.3 hh | Baden-Württemberg e.V. | Chello I (Contender – Sandro) x Louisiana V (Ladinos – Carolus I)

Cholin is an imported Baden-Württemberg mare bred by Thomas Visser. Cholin successfully competed up to M* in Europe prior to being imported to the USA. Cholin went on to a very successful hunter and eventing career in the USA with an adult amateur who competed extensively in top rated shows in the 3’6” division, consistently placing in the top. Cholin is a one-of-a-kind mare – she is an incredibly hard worker and incredibly loyal to her rider. She is smart, patient, and willing.


Cholin is not only an exceptional mare but also an exceptional producer. Cholin’s 2010 colt, Diachello, competed in the 2021 Olympics for New Zealand’s eventing team under Jesse Campbell. Cholin’s 2009 filly, Bavaria, is jumping S** under Heinz Roevenich. Cholin’s 2021 colt, Pavarotti MHF, sold to an international 4* jumper.


Cholin's sire, Chello I, is a son of legend Contender and a dam by Sandro, combining Europe’s jumping elite in his pedigree. His damline Holstein 318d2 is ranked # 3 worldwide with over 26 approved stallions in the last three generations among which Diarado, Corofino, Coriano and Mill Reef VDL. Cholin’s paternal granddam, Garcia III, produced an outstanding 5 licensed sons.


Cholin’s dam, Louisiana V, only produced two offspring before Maren Bentes began Lousiana V’s successful dressage career which led the pair to compete up to Intermediate I & II (S***). Louisiana V’s dam, Chila V, produced several top horses including Balimba V, who jumped under Jouline Jackels.
