Vuvuzela Z (Vagabond de la Pomme x Casantos) is a modern, athletic type stallion. He was recently approved by the world-renowned BWP head stallion judge Boudewijn Schepers where his movement was remarked upon as well as his loose elastic style of going. Vuvuzela has placed highly in all of his free jumping classes, showing off his carefulness and exceptional hind end. Vuvuzela has recently been started under saddle and is an exceptionally well balanced, rideable, and willing mount. As a colt, he was one of the youngest to be presented at the Z-Festival where he placed 5th out of over 250 colts. He is a very brave and active horse. He will show off his athleticism with a giant, inflatable soccer ball, knocking it around the paddock for hours. This is imaginatively fitting; after all, his name’s genesis stems from the triumphant horns used to cheer on soccer championships.
