About - Camiro de Haar is an international grand prix stallion who spent his sport career in Britain and Ireland, jumping under Richard Howley and Frank Curran. He is a good-sized, strong stallion with plenty of bone and crosses well with a variety of mares, always passing on good jump, temperament, and movement.
Performance - Camiro was eighth in the 2013 Bunn Leisure Derby Trophy, had several wins in the Millstreet CSI3*, and was second in the Wettenhall grand prix. He was also extremely successful in puissance and six-bar competitions, jumping up to 2.20m.
Sire - Chellano Z left the breeding scene early, after his untimely death as an 11-year-old in 2006. He had already finished in the top ten as both a six- and seven-year-old at the World Breeding Championships in Lanaken, and was jumping international grand prix classes under Jos Lansink as an eight-year-old, with placings in Neumünster, Valkenswaard and Rotterdam. His clone, Chellano Alpha Z, is also in both breeding and sport, having jumped at the World Championships and in young horse classes. Despite Chellano's limited breeding career, he has produced 30 licensed sons and more than 40 grand prix horses.
His sire Contender was one of the most established producers and amongst his progeny are 127 licensed sons and more than 100 grand prix horses, with winnings so far of over €8.65 million. His offspring include Checkmate, Montender, Chiara 222, Cool And Easy, Con Air, and Carlo 273.
Damline - His dam Namira de Haar was previously based in Britain, and is a daughter of the great Ramiro Z, who sired a host of important horses for sport and breeding, among them the brilliant Ratina Z, Royal Bravour, Robin Z, and Japeloupe; a total of over 150 licensed sons and more than 60 grand prix horses. Namira's maternal sister Sarah, by Celano, jumped at grand prix level, and Namira herself has also produced the 1.50m jumping stallion Zig Zag, by Concorde.
Offspring - From a limited number of foals, Camiro's best known offspring is Piggy French's fantastic Vanir Kamira, the 2019 Badminton CCI5* winner, who also finished second and fifth at Burghley in 2017 and 2018, among several other top ten placings at 3* level. He has also produced several other horses eventing at CCI2* and CCI3* level, including Creevagh Cooley and Creevagh Silver de Haar, as well as jumpers at 1.40m-1.50m level. He was ranked 31st on the 2017 WBFSH Sire Rankings for eventing, an impressive feat for a stallion with a limited number of progeny.
