Cattalou's story
+

SDP Buffalo Ranch is internationally recognised as one of the premier breeding ranches of cutting horses throughout the world.

CattalouThe Ranch focus is to own superior show horses with genetics specially selected to breed generations of horses that will continue to be world class athletes. So when SDP Buffalo Ranch director, Shane Plummer, sees a sire that he wishes to add to his stable of home grown superstars, the cutting world can be assured that that sire is definitely world class.

This was the case with Cattalou. Cattalou was purchased by SDP Buffalo Ranch in January, 2016, for all those right reasons.

Two simple quotes explain why. Shane explains “He impressed me as a show horse. He’s as impressive as they come”, while Shane’s father, David, simply says “If you have seen a better looking stallion, breed to him!”

Cattalou is a bigger stallion standing 15hh, with absolutely outstanding conformation. Similarly his mother is an outstanding looking individual with all pros and no cons.

Cattalou was not purchased to continue showing, but after their trainer, Paul Hansma, began a training relationship with the stallion he soon convinced Shane to continue showing him.   A 76, 76 and 77 from his first 3 shows proved Cattalou still had things to show the world. He has now been set to qualify for the World Championship held during the December U.S. NCHA Futurity. This event is open to the 15 highest money earning mature aged  horses (no longer eligible for aged events) throughout the season. Shane believes that $35,000 should qualify for the world and with only a limited season Cattalou should make this mark.

Cattalou’s $200,000 + earnings have been earnt the tougher way predominantly in Aged events. He didn’t have the luxury of a consistent program from beginning to end throughout his Aged Event years. His connections believe he would have had a much bigger LTE had this been the case.

Shane believes he is one of the most talented individuals ever and will definitely be remembered  as one of the Top 10 Stallions of all time.
