Casalor joins Abdel Said
Spotted at the age of 7 during the CSI of Barcelona ridden by rider-owner Jérôme Gachignard, the mare Casalor (Casall x Acodetto) was acquired by Denis Polge, Pascal Lenoir and Luc Madrennes. They wanted to entrust the Holsteiner to the young Gautier Lenoir. Casalor, whose granddam is a maternal half-sister to Cassini and Clarimo, soon came to people’s attention under the saddle of the French junior rider who was being considered for a participation in the European Championships.
The duo didn’t go unnoticed and the mare was then recommended by Elise Mégret to Egyptian rider Abdel Said, who will try her out at the end of the Young riders CSIO in Opglabbeek, and acquire her afterwards.
