M&M Hunter Jumpers Presents:
2016 Zangersheide Gelding
CICERO Z (CARTHAGO Z) X FORTUNA VAN PAEMEL (DARCO)
Recently imported from Europe, meet 5 year old, 16.3 hand Corleone Z, AKA “Vito”. If his stunning looks don’t get you, his hack winning trot, easy lead change and great jumping style will. His sweet and easygoing demeanor is indicative of his Carthago and Darco bloodlines. This horse will make every trainer’s dreams come true! The trainer will win in the professional classes with his hack winning trot, great jump, and easy lead changes , as well as his bravery for the hunter derbies. With his affable personality, the junior/amateur can show him now in the 3’ divisions, as he can totally take a joke. He also has plenty of scope to step right up to the 3’6” for hunters, derbies, or equitation as he walks the lines and is comfy as a couch. The grooms will love his amazing brain and good ground manners. The owner will love his quiet, cuddly personality as he takes everything in stride. The vet will love his great clean xrays and the farrier will love his great feet! I have never brought along a kinder, easier, young horse than this boy!
Recent PPE with clean X-rays available.
First weeks in the US: We are just getting to know Vito, but so far he's been a dream in the barn. He's easygoing, happy in turnout and in his stall, a gentleman to groom and a dreamboat to ride. He steps over 3'+ jumps with ease, he has a big comfortable canter and a 10+++ hack winning trot! No spook or look at all on the ground, in the arena or near the jumps. He's brave and easy as they come. After less than a week in the barn, two of our junior riders (ages 13 & 16) hacked and jumped him around with ease! This boy is beyond special!
First Horse Show, April 9-10, 2021: From start to end, Vito was a superstar at his first show in the US. He was easy to clean up with clippers, he loaded on the trailer with no issues or pawing. He was a gentleman to unload and is calm and sweet on the ground and in his stall. He was unphased by all of the horses, schooled perfectly with no look or spook and did great in traffic. He was perfection in his 3' hunter division as he stepped over the jumps, walked the lines and wowed everyone with his hack winning trot. This boy took all the blue ribbons as if he'd been doing it for years.
