Contact us for pre booking!
Zazoo is a 17hh, 2005, registered CSHA gelding (Hilton GS x Lorbas (Hanoverian) available for sale. He has competed extensively at the 3'0 and 3'3 level and last came off of a full season at 3'6 in the Amateur Owners, qualifying for the Royal Winter Fair in Toronto. Zazoo has tackled the professional derbies with all the high options and serviceable rounds and has pinned top 10 in the JR/AM derbies. Always a contender in the hack and is an excellent partner for medals and equitation classes.
Zazoo is well schooled on the flat, with a light, responsive ride. Don't let his age fool you, Zazoo is sound, knows his job both on the flat and over fences, and absolutely loves to work and be fussed over. Jumps with excellent form every time, no matter where you put him, and has large suspended gaits that make him a hack class standout.
He is a relatively easy keep with a few minor maintenances to keep him performing at his best. He is best suited for an under 3ft job at this time. Due to his size and his sensitive buttons, Zazoo would prefer a rider who can at minimum ride with good seat and leg, and not depend on his face for balance, but he will forgive a bad spot and will always jump. He does all the things a show horse needs to do and still loves to do them! This special horse is extremely well loved, with one owner his entire life, however, with the owners' life changes, they aren't looking to return to the competition ring and Zazoo still has so much to offer a lucky rider. This is a wonderful opportunity for a JR or AM to have a great season with an enjoyable mount!
In February 2023, Zazoo attended his first show since 2019 and competed in the Open division at an OCEA Equitation show. With 4 catch riders, Zazoo almost swept the top spots, finishing with the win, 3rd and 4th and claiming Horse of the Day. He was enthusiastic to be back in the ring, handled the equitation challenges exactly how his riders asked and made a few great scores a couple different ways!
For the 2023 season, Zazoo found a lovely lease job of starting a junior's show career. Zazoo has been a thoughtful, patient teacher in the 2ft division at the Caledon Equestrian Park Silver Series.
