Description: Karoline’s Traum is a lovely
older mare that has served as an enthusiastic jumping and dressage mount as well as a broodmare. She is a
lovely, naturally collected mover which loved to jump and was ridden by adults and children alike. Her riding career was cut short by a freak pasture accident which damaged her
hock. She underwent surgery and after a long recovery period occasionally still shows some discomfort so
she has been retired to the broodmare band. Sweet, quiet, and compliant, Karolines Traum is
a pleasure to have around the farm.
Karoline's Traum is by the polish approved and imported Trakehner
stallion Kartacz (Charbin xx o/o Aretina). Kartacz was foaled in 1976 at the Polish State Stud Liski. He was approved
in Poland and was Reserve Champion of his stallion inspection. Kartacz was used for eventing until he was
imported to Mexico and later imported to the U.S. Being a versatile stallion he was used for dressage, jumping,
driving and foxhunting. Kartacz had a limited breeding career in the U.S. and produced very few eligible female
offspring inspected and approved for breeding by the ATA before his he was lost to EPM.
brought into North America some old very athletic russian and polish bloodlines which have, in most part, been lost to
American Trakehner breeding programs. Karoline's Traum is one of the few offspring which were used for breeding
and which had any registered Trakehner foals.
At nearly 20 years of age, Karoline's Traum has only ever
produced one Trakehner foal, Kryptic, a 2007 stud colt by imported and approved Trakehner stallion Fandango (EH Sixtus x ES Flotte II).
