Cardano has received very good training and is ready to compete in show jumping tests up to 1.50 m.



Cardano already looks back on a highly successful career. He has achieved more than 50 placings in show jumping tests at medium and advanced level, including placings at national level up to 1.50 m and at international level up to CSI** (1.45 m).



This rather calm show jumper is pleasant to ride and always responds well to leg aids.

Cardano has a sound command of the flying changes and maintains a steady rhythm around courses.
