16 Mar VULCANO Z – Black calificado stallion at stud
16.1hh, 06/03/2011, CALIFICADO black stallion.
Imported from Spain by his owner Sadie Hadley, as a 3 year old and brought on very slowly as he is a big horse.
Vulcano was graded APTO in 2015 scoring, an unprecedented in the UK at the time, 9/10 in all categories; breed quality, harmony, walk, trot and canter. He was also one of the successful 7 horses that were presented in 2019 at the first ever UK Calificado grading. He then went on to compete in the 2019 National Championship Show and was placed 8th in the highly contested Adult Stallion Class.
Vulcano has been professionally started and trained by his owner under the watchful eye of the renowned Jason Webb. Sadie and ‘Zorro’ are now in training with Olivia Kelly and her French trainer Jean Papin. Jean works with true classical methods acquired from his father who trained under the amazing Nuno Oliveira.
Zorro’s maternal Gt Granddam is also dam to the exceptionally well known International Small Tour multi champion stallion HABANERO XLI. His sire is also the sire to the multi Movement Champion mare NUBIA VII so they are both descended from the much prized VINATERO III movement lines.
Zorro has a superb conformation and excellent movement. A great choice for any mare if you want to improve with Calificado blood and to create more suspension in the movement.
Available by AI with fresh or chilled semen.
