Cleine Cera goes back to the successful Holsteiner line 3615, which is cultivated at Thormählen Farm. Her great-great-granddam is none other than Fein Cera, who won individual bronze at the World Equestrian Games in Jerez/ESP in 2002 with Peter Wylde/USA and was the best horse in the final, clearing all four rounds. In 2004, the pair also won team gold at the Olympic Games in Athens/GRE.
Cleine Cera started her career under Christian Kukuk with successes in novice (A**) level tests for young show jumpers. With Carolina Heinze, she placed second in the 2013 Bundeschamopionat Final for five-year-old show jumpers. She also secured her ticket for Warendorf in 2014. In 2015, she achieved placings up to medium (M**) level. Cleine Cera is currently being successfully ridden by an amateur in novice class show jumping competitions.
