Up To You

Up To You is one of the best young stallions of his generation. He is a modern horse who boasts the quality of canter inherited from his father, and the strength and blood inherited from his dam line.


In 2013 Up To You qualified for the 5 year old French Championship final. The following year he was the highest ranked 6 year old.
There are high hopes for this young stallion to follow in his family’s footsteps.


Up To You’s sire, Calvaro, jumped at top international Grand Prix level with the likes of Jos Lansink and John Whitaker. He finished 8th individually in the European Championships at Mannheim 1997, won the GP of Hickstead CSIO, the Nations Cup of Aachen and was 5th in the GP of Maastricht, he was also 2nd in the GP of Valkenswaard and the World Cup GPs of Bologne and sHertogenbosch. In 2000, with John Whitaker, he competed at the 2000 Sydney Olympics. Thanks to the success of his offspring, Calvaro is the World #34 jumping sire for 2015.

Dam-sire, Olisco, had a hugely successful career in the USA, a World Cup finalist with Michael Matz, he was the sire of many good winners, including Kraque Boom, who won the European title at Windsor in 2009 and became a member of the French team, with Kevin Staut.
