Cadiz Z has the best story of the six-year-olds

The six-year-old winner almost hadn’t made it to FEI WBFSH Jumping World Breeding Championship for Young Horses. His rider and breeder Emily Sage explains. “We bred Cadiz out of a mare that I bought when I was fifteen years old. She was one of my best horses but really really sharp. We started breeding with her and Cadiz is her first offspring. We chose the stallion, Corydon van T&L, on the off chance. The then-owner of the stallion owed me some money and we struck a deal.”

“But I nearly put Cadiz down when he was a three-year-old because he was so dangerous. Even though I bred and handled him he was a lot to take on. I learned how to work with him and use his warrior-spirit to his and my own advantage. He is incredibly sharp, has lots of blood and I believe he will go a long way. I just hope we’ve done enough to get to the final, because I did not do so well on him yesterday and we had two rails down in the second phase”, the winner concludes.

256 horses competed in the six-year-olds but Cadiz Z and his British rider were the only duo that finished in a time under 61 seconds (60,69). Irishman Richard Howley steered KWPN-mare Kaatje AD (by Emir R) to the second place in 61,29. And Alexa Stais, riding for the Republic of South Africa, jumped Hannover-gelding Sohn der Erde K (by Salz der Erde) to the third position in 61,56.
