Cabrio Z joins Studfarm Zangersheide

28 / 12 / 2017
It was an emotional farewell for Olivier Philippaerts. After the first round of the Léon Melchior 'Sires of the World' at Jumping Mechelen, he took H&M Cabrio van de Heffinck's saddle off for the last time.

One of the biggest highlights of Cabrio Z was his victory in the Grand Prix of the Spruce Meadows Masters in Calgary in 2012. That victory also earned him the title of 'Horse of the Year' in 2012. This year the impressive grey stallion made part of the winning team of the Nations Cup during CSIO5 * Lummen. The son of Cassini I came under the saddle of Olivier as a 6-year-old and grew with him to the highest level over a period of 9 years. 
Cabrio Z already proved his qualities a sire with offspring at the highest level as Hector van d'Abdijhoeve (Betram Allen), Hadja van Orshof (Kelli Cruciotti) and Hope van de Horthoeve (Antonio Maria Garofalo). After the stallion's saddle was off, he got a blanket from Zangersheide, where he will stand at stud in the upcoming season and continue his career as a stallion. As a true champion he left the ring with loud applause, clearly ready for the next step in his career!
