IKEA - 2013 chestnut gelding 173cm. Zirocco Blue X Van Gogh X Animo
Super young horse prospect, brought on slowly and carefully, never overfaced or over jumped. With 5 double clears in British Novice, 4 double clears in Discovery and a double clear already at Newcomers (1.10m), Equal first in two 4yo classes at wales, Addington Young Horse championships, Weston Lawns and both the qualifier and the final at Hickstead (1.10m).
Perfect temperament, in and out of the stable, rides in a snaffle in a long and low outline, good to catch, box, shoe and in traffic, hacks out alone or in company. Ridden by young rider, and has been jumped and schooled by a 13 year old girl proving to be an impeccable ride even though he is a big 4 year old.
With a massive front end, perfect shoulder and massive power this horse has endless ability to jump the biggest of tracks in the future.
Zirocco Blue needs no introduction! Part of the gold medal winning team at Aachen in 2015, finishing 5th individually and he also competed at the 2016 Rio olympics! He was in the top ten of the 2015 World Cup Final in Las Vegas, has been on four winning Nations Cup teams, and won the Oslo World Cup Qualifier. With an amazing sire and dam line. Mr Blue jumped to 1.60m, his dam Licorne Des Forets jumped to 1.40m; who's sire voltaire jumped to 1.60m, and dam jumped to 1.50m! Whilst Mr Blue's sire couperus jumped to 1.60m!
Ikea's dam; Dena-Sienne herself is currently jumping and winning at 1.40/1.45m level coming 3rd in an international 8yo class (1.45m) just last year! Her sire Van Gogh jumped to 1.60m, who was sired by numero uno who jumped to 1.50m! Then of course there's Dena-sienne's dam sire Animo who jumped also to 1.60m!
Ikea has a half sister (by Mylord Cathargo) who is prok ster graded, whilst his dam has a half brother (by Lupricor) also jumping at 1.45m level successfully!
With this pedigree and natural talent there's no doubt that he won't make it to the top of the sport.
This is a very sad and genuine sale however if he doesn't sell I will keep him and produce him through the age classes next year.
