Shaka Zulu is a stunning gelding bred by WB Equestrian from our grand prix stallion Superchips Shaquille and our Dutch Ramiro mare. Both sire and dam are known for their honesty and scope.
Shaka Zulu is going very well for a 6yr old. Exceptionally comfortable to ride, he has 3 correct gaits, automatic lead changes and is working on his lateral movement. He is serious about his work and can quite easily be ridden by an amateur rider.
He is showing well in the high schooling classes, he has been to WEF in 2011 and 2012 as well as Kentucky in 2011, the rest of the time he competed in Florida in the ESP summer series.
The reason for the sale is we breed and have many young horses up and coming and Shaka Zulu although lovely doesn't really have a full time job. Rather than keep him here at the barn we prefer to sell him for a reasonable price for someone to finish their way.
As far as discipline, we have campaigned him primarily in jumpers. He definatly has the movement for the hunters and could possibly go 3-day.
He is currently in full training with our hunter trainer, he caught her eye because he has lovely movement on the flat and nice form over the fences and will go into the baby greens next year if not sold first.
He has the scope and the honesty to go all the way up to the Jr/Ams although he is not ready for that yet. With a good hunter trainer making him a he could easily do derby courses. He willing enough and honest for cross country, again put with a trainer of that discipline.
Stunning to look at he is a blood bay with 4 black legs and a star on his forehead. He has an inquisitive personality and loves attention.
No bad vices, loads, clips, ties, never been lame, UTD on everything. A good horse for a very good price.
