1997 Meeko by Art Deco; Premium
1995 Cealco by Art Deco; Premium
Facet was problematic as a riding horse as a result of a back injury sustained at a very young age. She, however, found redemption in her career as a broodmare. Her second foal, Meeko, first won several High Point Championships with Irena Coz and then served as a spring board to launch Katie Johnson's journey into the international Grand Prix dressage arena. Facet's final progeny, Violet, has produced many competitive Hunter Jumpers and Dressage horses. Facet lives on through her daughter and her daughter's daughters!

Grand Elan was a successful riding horse in her early years, however an injury curtailed her career in the dressage arena. She was bred by David Wilson and is a full sister to two Grand Prix dressage competitors, Robin Garrett's Grand Ballerina and Laurie Falvo's Grand Jovi. All her foals have three excellent gaits and an outstanding Adult Amateur type temperament.
Grand Bella Nina (Nina)
Grandios(Grand Canyon) x Hobby (Argus)
2016 Superman KC by Sternlicht (USEF# 5662729)
2015 Sternenklar KC by Sternlicht (deceased)
Nina was born here at Kastel Coz, in pasture, mistaken for a flake of hay! She was sold as a yearling and went on to successfully train up through 3rd Level dressage with the same owner. Nina was then sold again and began a second life as a Three Day Eventer at which she excelled. She came full circle when her owner reached out to me and offered me right of first refusal, and so she came home! She was bred in 2014 to Sternlicht and had a stunning colt, Sternenklar aka Batman. We were so pleased with Batman that Nina was immediately bred back to Sternlicht. Tragically, Batman was found deceased with a broken neck as a yearling just prior to the birth of his virtual clone, Superman KC aka Ethan. Ethan has turned out to be SPECTACULAR and is living his best life under his Adult Amateur owner's tutelage. R.I.P. Grand Bella NIna, you are gone but most certainly NOT forgotten!
Yoyo Mae (YOYO)
Bandit’s Lucky Doc x Hobby (Argus)
2010 Zulu Masquerade by Wedderlie's Mardi Gras (Half Welsh)
Yoyo Mae was an experiment, coupling my two Heart horses: Hobby and Bandit. For several years we had tried to get a Pinto warmblood from the Art Deco lines to no avail. This pair produced that elusive flashy coloring! Yoyo was no slouch as a mover and dressage competitor, never receiving a score less than 70%. She was sold to a friend and went on to be her daughter's Children's Hunter until circumstances arose and my friend sent Yoyo back to me for "indefinite storage". So, of course we bred her and she produced the most striking pony filly by Wedderlie's Mardi Gras, Zulu Masquerade aka Kelkel.
Kelkel went on to be sold to the amazing Zephyrus Welsh where she was successful on the 'Pony ' Show Circuit. Yoyo became a much beloved companion to the Ranch matriarch Gabrielle who is now 37 years old. Yoyo enjoys her retirement and companionship with Gabi!

(USEF # 5685321)
2015 Couture KC by Cunningham; Premium filly
2013 QashnQarry by Qredit (deceased before inspection)
Gucci started off as Dani Dunne's multi-tasker taking part in competitions in just about every sport horse discipline! She came to KCSH and was bred to Qredit in 2012. Sadly, baby Qash died when he was only a couple months old, we were devastated. In 2014 Gucci was bred to Cunningham (Cassini I)
and in 2015 produced a stunning filly, Couture KC aka Robin. Robin sold as an unstarted three year old back into Cunningham's owner's barn. She is winning all over the place as a Hunter Jumper with Team Slouka. In 2016 we were ready to breed Gucci back to Qredit for another Qash-like foal. 2017 brought us Quixotic KC aka Ducky, a virtual clone of baby Qash . Ducky kicked things off by being High Point Champion colt at his Oldenburg NA Inspection and then continued to excel with his new A/A owner, Sadie G.
He was 4th in the CDS 4year old Futurity Championship against a large field of stellar 4year olds ridden by professionals. Gucci is now enjoying retirement in Colorado.

2016 Chicago KC by Capone I (see video below)
2013 Clancy by Alcamera La Silla (Selle Francais)
A'Chloe aka Puma, was a phenomenal athlete but having had a rough start she was tricky to deal with, all of her progeny thus far have been kind, willing, and athletic. Puma is by the Dutch stallion Consul (proven via DNA and certified by KWPN-NA) and has consistently produced tremendous athleticism, excellent movement, and lovely temperaments. All of her riding age offspring are talented over fences with spectacular canters. Puma's two Capone I offspring are being developed by Tristar Farm, the Haunerts. Clancy and Confinato aka Opie are ridden and shown by Juniors.
Puma is currently in foal to Diarado due in May/June 2022!

Cassie was a resounding High Point Champion at her Oldenburg NA Inspection in 2010.

Recently she attended the CDS Horse of the Year and USDF Regional Championship Show and finished 8th in both classes all while carrying this Gaudi foal! (USEF # 5676983) Cassie received a 74% on her 2017 Mare Performance Test with the ISR/Oldenburg N.A., was upgraded to their Premium Mare Book, and was ranked 3rd High Point Mare on the West Coast. Cassie is in foal to Louisville HTF for 2023. On 9/12/22 Cassie's colt by Gaudi SSF was Premium and High Point Champion of his Inspection which earned Cassie her second Star Award. At the same inspection, Cassie's daughter, Schoneslicht KC, was awarded Premium Mare and solidified Cascade's first Star Award by having earned a 74% in her Mare Performance Test AND having produced two Premium Mares!

2022 Geistlicht KC by Gaudi (Totilas/DeNiro) via embryo transfer ; Premium colt
Naia carried on her dam's tradition in 2016 and was High Point Champion filly of her Oldenburg NA Inspection! She has developed into a lovely dressage mare and is currently showing at Training and First Level. In 2020 she passed her Mare Performance Test with a 72% (jumping is not her "thing"). Naia recently returned from Rancho Murieta after competing in the CDS Horse of the Year and USDF Regional Championships. She consistently scored in the low to mid 70%s and finished in the top ten in all her classes against some very stiff competition. (USEF # 5661322) Naia is Nationally ranked by USDF: 6th in the All Breed Awards for Oldenburg NA and 113th in the USA at First Level. Naia had a 2022 Gaudi SSF colt via embryo transfer and she is in foal to Fidertanz for 2023!
Naia was represented this year for entry into one of the Oldenburg NA mare books and received 108 points placing her squarely into the Premium Mare Book and thereby earning her second Star Award! Naia was 2022 Oldenburg NA Champion Mare on the West Coast.

2022 Gaia KC by Gaudi SSF (Totilas/DeNiro) ; missed Premium by one tenth of a point :/ but received the highest score for movement/gaits of the Inspection!
Zaffira was imported by Nick Wagman's (Tokyo Alternate) sponsor for him to compete. The pair did well together through PSG (USEF # 5069929), when Z suffered a debilitating injury to her left hind. Zaffira made her way to Kastel Coz three years ago and no serious effort was made to breed her until 2021. She was presented to Oldenburg NA for Inspection and was entered into the Premium Mare Book.

2022 Colt by Balou du Rouet (Baloubet du Rouet) - deceased
2019 Abraxas KC c. by Ace ( Acobat II)
Tori came to Kastel Coz fresh from the Thermal Desert Series Hunter Jumper Show. She was successfully campaigned at 1.40 meters by Tami Masters with at least one Grand Prix win in her USEF show record (Shown as NJK NoTorious; USEF#5283029). A pelvic injury impacted her right lead canter and was the ultimate cause of her semi-retirement. Tori was bred to Wild Turkey Farm's stallion ACE as soon as she arrived. She produced a dynamite colt that showed us his stuff by casually jumping out of his 1.50 meter enclosure as a yearling! Tori recently lost a foal by the illustrious stallion Balou du Rouet.

2022 Diam de Cali KC colt by Diamante Fino (Diamant de Semilly/Corrado); Premium Res. Champion colt 8.0/8.1/8.0
2019 Laertes KC by Limoncello II (Inspected as a yearling)
Caravan aka Romina is a mare that is leased by Kastel Coz from professional dressage trainer, Inge Taylor. Inge has trained Romina in dressage and has also jumped her to keep things fresh. Since her semi-retirement, we have bred Romina to Limoncello II, the ultimate stallion for Versatility! On paper Romina is as versatile as she is under saddle. The combination of her and Limoncello II has produced an incredible youngster that is poised to go out and excel in whatever he does. (See more about Gizmo on our sales page.) Kastel Coz is hoping to get a couple more foals from this elegant and talented mare!

Penny was AHS inspection site non-Hanoverian mare Champion. She produced a stunning colt by Sempatico that died in a tragic accident as a weanling.

This RPSI mare is a classic beauty and we here at Kastel Coz are excited to add her to our broodmare roster for 2022! She is kindly leased to us by Lisa Cleary. Charlotte is by a thoroughbred stallion out of a Wertherson mare. Wertherson is especially renowned for his daughters so this bodes well for Miss Charlotte! Char is wonderfully sweet and was successful in the H/J arena with absolutely NO stop and auto changes (USEF # 5267389), until a stifle injury sidelined her competition career. Charlotte is open and ready for a custom breeding in early 2024!
