Sire: As a 3-year-old, VDL ZAPATERO was Reserve Champion at the stallion inspection and, as a 4-yearold, Reserve Champion in the Stallion Competition at 1.10m level. Three years later, Zapatero was a finalist in the Dutch Championship for 7-year-old jumpers, and 2nd in the finals of the Youngster Tour at Geesteren. Ridden by Jessica Kürten, Zapatero won the GP of the KWPN Stallion Show 2015 and the VHO Trophy in 2013. Then ridden by Robert Vos, Zapatero won the Medium Tour Final in Wierden, won a class at CSI De Wolden and they were 7th in the Championat von Kiel. Zapatero’s offspring have attracted attention in the show ring. They exhibit reflexes, technique, attitude and scope. The first offspring are competing at Grand Prix level.
Dam: DEZIGNO is a multi-talented mare. She has serious talent as a dressage horse and then can turn around and free jump a 4'6 oxer. Dezigno's sire, ZENO, competed to 1.60m so we know where she gets her jumping talent. Zeno is by QUATTRO B and competed successfully at both dressage and jumping and has offspring that have excelled to the top of sport in both disciplines.
Notes: NOTORIOUS is bred to be an upper level jumper. His sire has been very successful, with offspring competing at the highest levels of jumping and much sought after in auctions. FERIMAIN TH was one of top sellers at DSHS for 235.000 Euro and VDL FREEDOM sold for $175,000 at WEF auction. Notorious was halter broke and picking up his feet before he was a week old. He is friendly, intelligent, playful, and learns quickly. If you are looking for a horse that has the ability to take you up the levels of jumping or dressage then this colt is a must see. With his lovely colour and flashy markings, you are sure to stand out in the show ring.
