breeding and performance

Billy Picador’s breeding features the outstanding bloodlines for which the Zangersheide Studbook is famous. He carries the double crosses of both Cor de la Bryere and Capitol 1 in his pedigree. He was the second highest priced foal from this prestigious stud in 1997.

Billy Picador was another one of our lovely young horses who had a fantastic 2018 season both Nationally and Internationally being placed in the All England 6 Year Old Championship and culminating in a double clear in the 6 Year Old Final in Oliva Nova Mediterranean Equestrian Tour. 

2019 has been a super year so far for Billy Picador, she was unlucky not to qualify for the Foxhunter final at the Horse of the Year Show when she finished 3rd in her qualifier but did qualify for the National Championships in the position. She also had a great week at The Royal International at Hickstead being placed in the international 7 & 8 year old classes.
