Cascani | Ariadus
Beyoncé descends from the power house “C” line. Her sire, Cascani, a 1997 grey stallion was a top 1.40m horse who’s offspring are impeccable. Licensed DSP, AHHA, SBS, and RPSI, this horse has stamped his offspring, especially Beyoncé, with amazing athleticism and jumping talent. His sire, Cascani I, a champion in his own right, had 25 approved stallion offspring which are much sought after to this day.
From the dam line, the stallion Ariadus was 4th at the 1995 stallion approvals in Neumunster. Ariadus’s sire, Accord II, after winning his 100 day test in Germany, became a lead breeding stallion. Ariadus’s grand-dam, Folia, produced the Foundation stallion Capitol I who has influenced many of today’s most successful sport horses. Cor de la Breyer and Landgraf also appear in Ariadus’s lineage making his line quite influential for US breeders.
Beyoncé began her career as an 3 Day Eventing horse. With her delightful attitude and willingness to do what is asked of her enthusiastically, she was a perfect horse to run cross country. Beyoncé is highly athletic and excels in the jumping ring. In addition to numerous wins as a jumper, she recently jumped in a Puissance, finishing it at 1.5m.
Beyoncé trains with her rider, an ambitious junior, in dressage as well. For their latest dressage show, the pair were awarded High Point and High Point Junior Champion. Beyoncé is a competitive horse who tends to be “hot” while remaining very rideable. Her junior rider, who was just 13 years old when acquiring the mare, has never had a ride that has been a worry. Instead she has become a very accomplished rider as an Eventer, Show Jumper, and dressage competitor. Beyoncé has an extensive show record and is always ready to please, while having fun.
