We stand in respect and awe as we take leave of the “Grande Dame” of Callaho, Callaho’s Ravella (Raphael / Watzmann / Gotthard). This impressive mare with her superb dam-line and track record qualified her as one of the ”gems” of our procurement programme. In Germany she produced licensed stallion All In One (Acord II) and also international jumping sensation Sinclaire (by Singular Joter) under Christian Ahlmann.

For Callaho she produced 14 top progeny, her most successful so far being Callaho Fiorella (by For Joy, owned & ridden by Jeanne Korber) and Callaho Fiona Vella (by For Joy, owned & ridden by Claire Martin) with others still starting with their careers.

Ravella, at 25 years of age, also produced two top Lissabon fillies for Callaho (Callaho Lola Vella & Callaho Leila Vella) that have been included into our breeding programme and are producing top quality offspring as Ravella did. Thus we know that Ravella’s legacy will be carried on through her progeny in the show ring as well as the ones in breeding with us, making sure that this special girl’s contribution to our stud will never be forgotten.
