1997 Elite Hanoverian Stallion - Standing at Whitehedge Farm
Cabalito was imported from Germany in 2001 to be the flagship hunter stallion for Whitehedge Farm. He combined a very successful show and breeding career from 2001-2007, establishing himself as a very important breeding stallion for the US. His offspring are particularly sought after for their fantastic temperaments, rideability and beautiful hunter movement. Cabalito has been heavily utilized in our breeding program as his first and second generation offspring continue to prove his value as an important part of American Hunter breeding.
- Cabalito returned to the show ring in 2015 in incredible shape at age 18 with great success! He recently competed at the Historic Pin Oak Charity Horse show in Katy, TX. He was shown in the Adult Amateur Hunters with Susan Leonard, and in the National Hunter Derbies with Peter Pletcher. He received great ribbons, including a 7th place out of 45 horses in the $10,000 National Hunter Derby.
- Cabalito was extremely well represented with several offspring also showing at Pin Oak. Cover Girl WH debuted in the Pre-Green Hunters with good ribbons. Corazon WH showed well in the Childrens hunters, Pearl Street (also bred by WHF) in the Pre- Greens and Older Adult hunters, and WH Custom Made in the modified adult hunters.

Cabalito was bred by Heinrich Heemke in Germany. At his licensing, Cabalito was selected by the State Stud in Celle.
This is considered a great honor, as of the thousands of colts that are born each year, only a few and select best are licensed, and only about 10 of these are selected to stand at the state stud.
From here Cabalito made the short trip to Adelheidsdorf where he participated in the 11 month state performance test, culminating with the final 100 day test. Cabalito completed the difficult testing with flying colors, finishing in the top half of his class. He received 8’s in willingness to work, overall capacity to work, walk and trot. Cabalito is one of the few licensed sons of the very elegant and popular Hanoverian State Stud Cordoba. These are new bloodlines to be introduced to
the US that are known in Germany for producing horses of excellent character and ridability. Cabalito also has a fantastic dam line that through his grand-dam, Dompoesie, has produced the exceptional stallions Weltmeyer, Wanderbusch I & II, Don Carlos and many other renown performance horses. You will see many other famous stallions in his pedigree including Cavalier, Bolero, Absatz and Dominik.
After an extensive search for a promising young hunter sire to compete and breed, Cabalito was selected and imported to the states by Whitehedge Farm in 2001 to be the foundation of their hunter breeding program. He was also approved for breeding by the Oldenburg Verband during their 2001 summer tour.
His competitive career in the US that was started and managed by Anne Hedge showcased his versatility as a sporthorse. He was Champion stallion and overall Grand Champion three times atbreed shows, culminating with the USDF Region 9 Mature Horse Championship stallion. Cabalito was started in the hunter ring by Shane George with great success and was very well received by both judges, trainers and breeders. He received top ribbons and many wins in the pre-greens at "A" shows including the San Antonio Christmas Show, Great Southwest and the High Prairie Summer Circuit. In 2003 he started in the First Year Greens and was Champion at several AA shows, including the Ocala winter circuit out of over 35 other horses. He moved up to the 2nd yr Greens with Shane George with great success in 2004. In 2005 Cabalito went for a change of pace with a new rider and moved into the jumper ring. He quickly moved up the ranks with ribbons in the level 5,6 and 7's. He displayed enormous scope, and had the promising look of a future Grand Prix star. Due to unfortunate changes of family circumstance, Cabalito was sold in 2007 to Marsh Pond Farm in Florida. He showed with their 14 yr old son in the junior jumper divisions with great success. He took a break from showing for a year then moved back into the hunter ring with owner owned Lisa Coletto to earn championships in the Adult hunters in Arizona and California. He has now returned home to Aubrey, Texas to be retired as a breeding stallion.
Cabalito has proven to be an exceptional producer throughout his career, and has offspring competing up to the highest levels in the hunter and jumper rings. He has produced inspection champions, MPT winners, hunter breeding champions, Champions in the First Years, Junior hunters, Children's and Adults Hunter and has many offspring that are very loved by their junior and amateur riders.
Cabalito continues to be an important asset to the breeding of high performance hunters in the US, and also as an important broodmare sire through his exceptionally producing daughters. Whitehedge Farm will continue to use him regularly in our breeding program through both cooled and frozen semen.
