This wonderful Belgium imported stallion, aka “Ziggy” was brought into the country by Ronelle Gilbert and Frederick De Wae. Fred who I have dressage lessons with, saw potential in this cheeky, spirited boy whilst in Europe and they decided to bring him into SA.
He was not noticed by the riders and was a little difficult to ride so Ronelle asked Nicola to ride him for her to produce and sell… Well the rest is history, Nicola fell in love with the sweet boy and he gives her his all. He had his début into the 1.50m classes at the beginning of 2019, jumping the Presidents cup with one or two poles. Ziggy jumped his very first World Cup Qualifier of the year in May, jumping an impressive double clear with 1 time penalty and placing 4th. The rest of the year he jumped really well just getting a taste of jumping in the big classes.
Ziggy competes at Elementary Dressage shows on his “off time” 😉
