The good Equestrian World kept on coming for Italian equestrianism and in particular the horse breeding sector. In fact, in the CSI2* Super Cup final over 1.45m Zoe Conter came out on top with Italian bred Zeta di Sabuci. For the young Conter, riding on home soil, it was the second win in quick succession much to the delight of her family after also winning the Youngster Final earlier in the week.
Born in 2005 Zeta di Sabuci was raised at the Sabuci Breeding Farm by Raffaele Aprile in Sicily and is daughter to the renowned Belgian stallion Kannan. The horse is now based at Stephan Conter’s headquarters and is really starting to show all of its potential.
