Zidane R is a stunning 16.3hh 5yo bay gelding by Mermus R (Burggraff) out of a Clover Hill dam line. Mermus R has multiple offspring jumping at nations cup and Grand Prix level (1.60m) and Burggraaf who jumped at 1.60m himself also has multiple progeny at top 1.60m level. On the dams side the famous Clover Hill, a successful Irish draught sport horse whose contribution to breeding showjumpers is legendary throughout Ireland and the UK.
Zidane has a fantastically scopey jump with a naturally elastic back end. He’s not phased by fillers or trays being easy and bold to a fence. He’s currently jumping round British Novice/discovery on a ticket with ease and is now ready to begin his competitive career. He’s a serious contender for next years age classes and the big tracks in the future, he’s schooling round 1.20/30 at home.
On the flat Zidane has three nice paces, working in a soft outline. He is always snaffle mouthed. He hacks out alone and in company, is good in traffic and open spaces. Can be a little looky when alone but nothing nasty.
Zidane has a wonderful laid back temperament, he’s very easy to do in all ways - shoe, clip, turnout/catch, load, travel, tack up etc.
After being purchased by the current owners January 2019, Zidane spent time maturing. He mainly hacked out and schooled on the flat however he has grown too large for his petit lady rider and outgrown the husbands novice riding capabilities. Zidane needs a competition home where he can fulfil his potential. He has been with us on sales livery since mid October and within that time has improved immensely. He’s really enjoying his showjumping and is ready to progress in his career with the right rider, no novices due to his age as he is still green but very willing.
