ZALADIN MI – BERNSTEIN- CHAGALL
Breeder and owner Verbena Ab.
Approved: SWB och Oldenburg
With his spectacular golden coat and outstanding temperament combined with brilliant and well balanced gaits, Zafferano is undoubtedly one of the most exciting young stallions to come out of Sweden.
Bred with performance in mind, Zafferano always displays his outstanding temperament along with charming charisma, personality, brilliant gaits, exceptional rideability and handleability.
At his 50-day test 2016 in Schlieckau, Germany, Zafferano distinguished himself and impressed test riders with his exceptional rideability, willingness to work and easy trainability. He was assessed as the 3rd highest asserted stallion in Schlieckau and was awarded a 10 for his temperament, 9.75 for interior, 9.5 for willingness to work, and 9 for rideability! For his jumping ability he scored an 8!
With his total score of 8,4 he was ranked second best stallion amongst all 3 year olds in all of the 50-days tests throughout Germany in 2016.
At his Swedish test, 2016, Zafferano was the only 3-year-old approved. There, he was praised for his excellent temperament, high rideability, good gaits and correct exterior. The Swedish stallion evaluation committee stated, “Zafferano will contribute to well-proportioned offspring with correct leg position and foundation. In performance he can help with light-footedness, elasticity of gaits, a good temperament, rideability, and willingness to cooperate.”
The rich, golden palomino coat Zafferano was acquired through his damsire, Bernstein. Bernstein is one of a very few stallions who acquired this colour directly traced from a stallion located in England in 1665, Darcy’s Yellow Turk. Zafferano’s lineage is that of pure Swedish, Trakehner, and Hanoverian breeding, having originated from thouroughbread.
Zafferano’s temperament is outstanding, with easy rideability and handleability, and his athletic abilities are of international quality. He is also a good jumper due to the influx of great jumping blood through both his dam and sire.
Zafferano has repeatedly proven himself to have superior handleability and rideability in a variety of venues. Under saddle he is willing to work, honest, forward, moves well off the leg. He is expressive and elastic in all gaits working through his entire body. He has a super personality and is very friendly and kind in the stable, with true generosity and is always a gentleman.
