Above - Jumping with Alexandra Wright (nee Klatte) - a happy combination!

Cannavaro was imported for his outstanding performance pedigree which promised a significant contribution to Australian performance horse breeding and the versatility to produce dressage horses as well as showjumpers.  His sound genetics along with an obliging and trainable temperament has allowed this young stallion to exceed the most optimistic expectations!

As a four year old, he has proven himself in dressage and jumping with outstanding results in both the Australian Young Dressage Horse Championships and the Australian Young Jumping Horse Championships. It is rare to find a young horse with the calm acceptance to prove himself in both Olympic disciplines,  Just a few months after he arrived at Bellaire Stable, he made his Dressage & Jumping with the Stars debut and these are his results ...
