Bio and Performance Record: Momentus (Chicago de Folie) has already turned heads with his beautiful technique and athleticism and jumped into the Hunter ranks under the professional guidance of one of the best riders in the U.S., Tori Colvin. Imported in 2022, he has already earned 9th place in the 2022 3’3 USHJA Platinum Performance Green Hunter Incentive Championships – 2022 Reserve champion Kathryn G. Clark Memorial Challenge of Champions
Momentus’ sire is one of the most modern day prolific Holsteiner stallions, Casall. Casall is considered to be one of the most elegant of the Landgraf sons out of one of the most successful Holsteiner mare lines. With his prolific Grand Prix career under Rolf-Göran Bengtsson making debuts at some of the most challenging courses such as the London 2012 Olympics, Herning Europeans, and World Equestrian Games. His exceptional offspring have put him in the top spot on the WBFSH sire rankings for 6 years. At 18, Casall was retired from competition fit as a fiddle.
The international star, Casall, won his first Grand Prix under Rolf Goran Bengstsson in 2008, from there the pair went on to place all of the world’s premier showjumping competitions. In 2010 Casall won the Grand Prix in Rotterdam, the following year they went on to place first in Hamburg and Monte Carlo legs of the Global Champions Tour and the World Cup in Lyon. In 2012 he made his debut in the 2012 London Olympics, in 2013 he was second at the Grand Prix in Ommen and Zurich, fourth individually in the European Championships in Herning. 2014 in the Global Champions Tour he competed 6 out of the 7 jump offs won in Chantilly and Doha and placed second overall.
Casall’s dam Kira traces back to stem 890, one of the most successful Holsteiner performance mare families. At the 2005 stallion grading in Neumünster, her son Clarence by Carano attracted a lot of attention and won reserve champion. Casall’s second dam, Maltia by Raimond, produced Taura (by Lord), and Taura in her turn produced the licensed stallions Ringo Starr and Cesano I and II. The successful international sport horses, Crocodile Dandy (Alison Firestone) and Conally (Markus Renzel), are out of Taura, as well.
Momentous’ dam, Contendra I, has produced 1.45m Quaprice B (Quaprice du Bois Margot) and her dam, O Contendra B, is the full sister to 1.60m Contendro II. Contendro II produced several top horses including 1.65m ‘GC Chopin’s Bushi’ with Denis Lynch, 1.60m ‘Brighton’ with Tiffany Foster & 1.60m ‘Call Me’ with Emilio Bichocchi.
