Introducing Chosen One DF

We are positively thrilled to introduce Chosen One DF! This spectacular Holsteiner colt is by the incomparable Grand Prix Show Jumper, Coconut Grove xx, and out of the mare, Cheerleader (Diarado/Cassini II). "Uno" is blessed with the all of the looks and talent that his royal blood could bestow, including a kind and willing temperament.

Uno is by Coconut Grove who won the young horse competition of Colombia in 1993 and was Reserve Champion in both the National Jr. Rider and Young Rider Championships in 1994. From 1995-96 he won numerous Open Jumper classes and small Grand Prixs as well as three consecutive National Show Jumping Championships in Colombia from 1997 to 1999.

He was champion in the Bolivarianos Games 1997, Champion in the1998 Toyota Cup, a World Cup Qualifier, Reserve Champion in the Centro American Games of 1998, and Reserve Champion in the 1998 World Cup Qualifier in Venezuela. Coconut Grove was the Best South American Horse and placed Team 5th in the 1999 Pan Am Games, was 3rd in the 2000 $100,000.00 U.S. Open Jumper Championships, and 6th in the 2000 WEF Challenge Cup Grand Prix.

He won the Biltmore Welcome Stake and was 2nd in Modified Jumper - Upperville 2000 and 5th in the Grand Prix of Wellington in 2001. He ranked 3rd in the 1999/2000 American Grand Prix Association Rookie of the Year Championships based on only six starts. In his career, Coconut Grove qualified for all major show jumping events: the Olympics, World Cup, American Invitational and the American Grand Prix Association Championships.

Coconut Grove
With a quality pedigree, an outstanding performance record and sound conformation, Coconut Grove exemplifies the best of what an exceptional thoroughbred stallion has to offer. Coconut Grove is the first Thoroughbred stallion in the U.S. to be granted a breeding license by the American Holsteiner Horse Association and the American Hanoverian Society. He has 100% positive approval status with 9 European, 9 U.S. and 1 Canadian Registry, the only thoroughbred in U.S. history to accomplish this feat. In 2005, he was chosen for the highly selective Hanoverian Jumper Breeding Program. In 2014, Coconut Grove was posthumously approved by the American Trakhener Association. Coconut Grove is often described as "amazing" in editorial columns. He was a very agile and careful jumper, had abundant scope, and his jumping technique was excellent.


Uno's dam, Cheerleader, is by Diarado who is brilliant in his type, superior in his appearance and possesses extremely precious bloodlines: Diarado enchanted the experts at the Holstein stallion approvals. A winning stallion from top to toe, combined with fantastic movements and a jet black coat. His abilities seem endless - effortless, quick and superior with an ideal bascule he was the topic of every conversation at the Holstein stallion approvals. Like pearls on a string he combines the big names of the Holstein breeding through his dam which is by the outstanding sire Corrado out of a Contender-Lord-Ramiro dam. Amongst the highly successful descendants of the grand Holstein lineage 318 d2 are the international show jumpers Cabrio/Toni Hassmann, Morales/Dr. Michael RĂ¼ping and numerous licensed stallions such as Corofino I and II, Coriano, Crawford, Chello I and II as well as the licensing-champion Camiros (sire of Maya Black's Doesn't Play Fair). His sire Diamant de Semilly ridden by Eric Levallois was member of the French gold winning team at the world championships in Jerez and won the team silver medal at the European championships the following year. Bred for performance, he has been consistently named "best sire of young horses" at the French championships in Fontaineblau . He can look upon an entire armada of international top-class horses and by now belongs to the most sought after sires in France. Grandsire Le Tot de Semilly was also internationally successful and is considered to be one of the best show jumping producers in France.

Cassini II
Cheerleader's damsire is Cassini II, the full brother of Cassini I (Capitol/Caletto II/Mahmud; Stamm 3389). Injured when younger, it has taken time to prove himself, but is now very sought after because of his talented offspring. They are of a modern type and very attractive. Cassini II is considered a better producer than Cassini I.

Chosen One DF, "Uno"
With the best talent of the past from both the Thoroughbred and Holsteiner in his pedigree, the future is bright for this youngster, without a doubt!
