Like father like son…Di Caprio. Sire- Lingh was Caprimond, the best Trakehner Stallion of the 1998 year , is an exceptional stallion with a career as both a performance horse, and a sire. His pedigree is outstanding, not only through the male side, which contains phenomenal stallions like Arogno, Flaneur, Ibikus, Mackensen, and Herzbube, but also through his grandmother, Coeur-As, a full sister to Uwe Sauer's Grand Prix horse, Caro Bube. Caprimond was reserve champion of his keuring, champion of his stallion test and reserve winner of the Bundeschampionat for three year old riding horses. After Caprimond's Championship at the Adelheidsdorf test in 1988, he began his dressage career, and was successful at the "S" level at seven years of age. In 1996 he achieved the first Grand Prix wins. The Elite Caprimond is valued for siring talented, rideable offspring with beautiful heads and necks, and may be considered as a type useful for refinement. He is ranked the number one sire of "type" for Hanoverian mares, a typical Trakehner "improver." Of Caprimond's twelve approved sons, Hohenstein has also risen to be one of the most sought after stallions in Germany, and was 2002 Trakener Stallion of the Year. Other sons have also earned top marks at stallion performance tests, demonstrating the rideability and trainability of their sire's dominant dressage genetics. Caprimond's daughter's include Donaumaerchen II, best three-year-old mare at the Federal mare show in Warendorf in 1994. The success of Donaumaerchen I and II as broodmares, has secured Caprimond a special position in breeding, with a top breeder's value of 138 points.
