Cheenook was a bay Holsteiner stallion by Caretino out of Trika (Romantiker x Herbstglanz) who passed away in 2005 at 17-years of age after a severe colic attack. Cheenook was a flamboyant mover with lovely knee action, and despite being mainly a show jumping oriented stallion, got to breed to many dressage mares as well to whose offspring he passed on his lovely movment.
He finished third in his performamnce test in 1991 and in 1999 had his first son, Coco Cavalli licensed in Oldenburg. In dressage he was trained to Grand Prix level, demonstrating his great trainability. In 2002 he achieved 140 points on the German jumping index.
His dam's sire Romantiker was one of the first approved son's of the world-famous Ramiro. His pedigree also contains an interesting outcross with the trakhener stallion Herbstglanz, as well as the Arabian stallion Sahib.
This horse is part of our breeding programme bloodline, we DO NOT offer semen.
