Stylish and scopey, with big beautiful movement, Eagle Eyes RC is a promising prospect for the hunter or jumper ring. A very comfortable ride, she loves to work under saddle and is eager to please. Stands in the crossties and for the farrier, loads on trailers, and loves to trail ride.
Eagle Eyes’ sire Carino G, although relatively young, impressed us with his modern type, athleticism and scope. Aside from outstanding bloodlines and three beautiful gaits, Cariño G’s most outstanding quality might have been his temperament. He was quiet and willing, which made him a pleasure to ride and train. His athleticism was made clear by his near perfect jumping form and considerable scope.
His father, Caretino, is considered one of the best sires in Holstein breeding, with successful approved offspring in Dressage (e.g., Cheenook, Carpaccio and Cokney) and Show Jumping (Caretano, Ballerina). Known for his outstanding jumping technique, Caretino won numerous young horses classes before making Grand Prix and Nations Cup appearances. After retiring to the breeding shed, Caretino sired 37 licensed sons and 41 state premium daughters, 10 of whom were awarded a Verband premium designation. Without a doubt, Cristallo, ridden by America’s Richard Spooner, is one of Caretino’s most outstanding offspring in competition today. From his dam’s side, Cariño inherits traits from the phenomenal Riverman. Riverman began his career by winning his stallion test at Ermelo in 2001. He competed successfully as a 1.40m jumper, before turning to dressage in 2005. It is Riverman’s offspring, though, that set him apart as a truly exceptional sire. His progeny are talented jumpers and beautiful, supple movers with fantastic minds. We rarely see the results that Riverman’s offspring have produced in so many different venues and at all levels of competition.
On the bottom side, Eagle Eyes’s maternal grandsire is Calme, who harks back to Cor de la Bryere and the influential Thoroughbred stallion Furioso.
