Breeding & pedigree information
Calígula Interagro is another Quínio son with a superb pedigree and potential for reproduction. To give a brief idea of what a jewel this young stallion is, we recommend reading the text about the Firme (SA)/Nilo (MV)/Novilheiro (MV) modern lineage in our webpage or in our book “The Lusitano Lineages”. Calígula’s dam, Barqueira (RC), Gold Medal in Lisbon, was one of the exceptional mares bred by Arsênio Raposo Cordeiro and later sold to Interagro by this famous Portuguese breeder. The whole rationale behind Barqueira (RC) and other (RC) mares was to recuperate, on a consanguineous basis, the extremely desirable genealogy of Toleirona (MV) and Guerrita (MV), the latter being the dam of Novilheiro (MV) and Opus II (MV). Interagro is persevering in this work and has bred a group of these particularly rare animals, From Barqueira (RC), we bred: Trinco and Agamemnon Interagro, both sold at the Lusitano Collection (2006 and 2010, respectively); Zangado Interagro is presently serving in the farm at Itapira. This is a unique chance to acquire a very promising young stallion.

Trainer’s Opinion by Heather Bender
This young stallion is really beautiful. His face, mane/forelock, presence, and expression are amazing. Calígula Interagro is a sensitive horse, most suitable for a quiet rider. Even with age, Calígula Interagro will always be a forward horse, a quality that a confident rider will value. He is clearly intelligent and willing, and responds best when he is lunged correctly in a round frame to supple his back before he is ridden to develop his gaits and thoroughness. If he is ridden in a fashion that makes him tense, you will not see his full potential as a dressage competition horse for the future. He is ideal for someone who rides quietly and does not want to have to push their horse along. Calígula Interagro is appropriate for an intermediate to advanced rider.
