Key information

  • Name
    Don Ricoss

OVERVIEW

Ameretto M's sire Cassini II is a full-brother of the great stallion Cassini I, who was a worldwide success under Franke Sloothaak. Cassini I also knew how to make the difference in breeding and the same is true for this full-brother. His dam Allora is – like the international jumping horse Leonidas under Lars Nieberg – one of Lincoln’s products. The motherline goes back to great-granddam Dietlinde of the Holsteiner line 1947. She is also the granddam of the Holsteiner stallion Cambridge (by Caletto I) who was successful in international jumping arenas.

Ameretto moves correctly within all three paces and is proving to have a good honest attitude to his work. Ameretto's showjumping breeding speaks for itself, with a very strong sire and
dam sire line he will hopefully go on to be extremely successful within this discipline.

In 2012 Ameretto M competed at Scope in the Discovery championships.  He also attended Aintree Amateur championships.  He has qualified for the second round newcomers in 2013 and is one double clear of foxhunter second rounds.

In the winter of 2012/13 Ameretto embarked on a second career in dressage.  Gaining good marks everytime out at novice level and placed nearly everytime out.

In 2013 Ameretto has continued his success in the dressage and jumping arena.  He qualified for the Petplan area festival at Novice and Elementary and ended up 8th in the Elementary championship.  He will hopefully move up to medium through the winter 2013/14.

Ameretto was ridden and competed by Retford based Adam Taylor for sometime. This partnership produced great results and climbed up the ladder gaining double clears to foxhunter level.

In August 2012 Ameretto was inspected by the AES and licensed with them, he is also licensed with Breeders Elite

Fresh, Chilled and Frozen Semen.
