Calvados sire Uriel has been leading sire for several years (index 211, the highest index figure ever in France). Uriel contributed to French breeding through 26 sons and he produced more than 100 international show jumpers! His dam Gold Rose (index 186) was as a 3 year old French Conformation Champion and she was in the French Showjumping Team from 1979 until 1982, during which time she won for example the Grand Prix of Paris and Madrid and became second in Lisbon, Barcelona and Hamburg. In addition Gold Rose produced two sons, that both became approved stallions Turban Rose in Sweden and Calvados in Holland. Gold Rose was sired by the great showjumper producer Ibrahim with 36 approved sons in France, including the legendary Alme. Granddam of Calvados was the unique mare Jolie Rose, who became very famous by producing 6 international showjumpers including: All Rose, Dall Rose, Gold Rose, La Rose II. She also produced the approved stallions Irminio and Joly Jumper. Calvados as a 4 year old won the National Stallion Competition. In 1992 Calvados as an 8 year old claimed a deserved 7th place in the Dutch Championship with Peter Geerink.

The next year they were Reserve Champion of the Netherlands and won the Grand Prix of Tjele in Denmark, 3rd Grand Prix of Drammen, 5th Grand Prix of Falsterbro, 2nd Grand Prix of Spangenberg, 4th Grand Prix of Geesteren and winner of the Stallion Competition at ‘s-Hertogenbosch. Although Calvados has bred on a very limited scale, he has many international offspring jumping at Grand Prix level, e.g. Macanudo’s Deniro (Peter Wylde), Royal Future (Allison Firestone), Royal Love (Susanne Behring), Harmonie (Leon Thijssen), Iwan II (Mark Armstrong), Illussion (Tani Tops) and Silber Bird (Markus Beerbaum). Calvados is one of the few stallions who has earned his predicate. He has this to thank from his above mentioned, worldfamous children, who won grand prix and world cups. Calvados produced the reserve champion of the IAN-trophy and a lot of offspring scored high marks in their mare tests, IBOP’s and foal auctions. The jumping index of Calvados is extremely high with 152 points. Calvados produced the highest percentage star mares in 2003.
