Handsome zangersheide warmblood with great bloodlines for sale. Grandson of Grand Prix showjumper Kashmir van Shuttershof.
Full name Ray Ban De Pirchamp Z (Zippy). Has done BSJA and worked to medium dressage. Will do double time flying changes etc.
For sale as I can no longer do this gorgeous boy justice, No fault of his own. Needs an experienced home only, not a novice ride.
Jumped up to 1.30 with previous owner who the sold him to me after he (old owner) had been unable to commit time to him while he and his partner went through IVF.
I have had Zippy for nearly a year and spent time getting him fit and strong as he came underwei got etc. Will need reintroducing to
jumps purely based on not jumping with me for a year which is down to my fear of jumping not him but has done pole work with me. I have not jumped myself as I lost my confidence on another horse shortly after Zippy came so his talent is being really wasted with me although we love him dearly and is a character on the yard. Hacks alone and in company.
He is 15 and ready for a slower life so very able to go out and about but not able to go out jumping ridiculously high fences any more but would do up to 1.10 comfortably. Has done XC and works to medium dressage although I have lacked the time to do a lot.
He is NOT a novice ride and can be sparky / forward going.
Snaffle mouthed. He can be wary of strangers but once he knows you is the sweetest boy. Gentle handling is super important with Zippy as he is a typical warmblood and was treated badly as a baby. Strong or aggressive handling does not work with him.
He can be very sharp if not ridden consistently and needs a home where they understand the warmblood temperament. Never done anything nasty but can be stubborn and opinionated! Has bucked twice with me out hacking in the fields purely based on excitement and out hacking can be slightly nappy leaving the yard but with a strong leg aid and voice he will merrily go forward. Loves hacking and we go for two hour hacks where he is usually on the buckle. Always keen to get home.
Well mannered in the stable but can pull faces till he gets to know you.
Really deserves a 5 star home, We feed him NAF gastriaid to keep his tummy healthy as he can be sensitive when doing the girth.
Videos of him showjumping available.
I am being as honest as possible as this boy deserves a proper forever home and I would love to keep in touch. Good to clip and shoe etc.
