Zerdi (aka "Z") is a 2007 imported States Premium Holsteiner mare (Cormint x Carvallo, Stamm 4). She is a dark bay, about 17h — modern, leggy, beautiful, and kind. She was imported as a 3-year-old from Holstein.
Z was in Germany with Jan Meves until the fall of her 6-year-old year (2013) when she was imported to the United States. Mattias Ekeroth piloted her until his other commitments took him out of the saddle. In March of 2015, Susie Hutchison took over the ride. The mare has experience in the show ring to 1.30m and qualified for the 7-year-old YJC (Young Jumper Championship) West Coast championships in 2014.
Under saddle, Zerdi is sensitive and a bit forward; but at the same time she is kind, not "spooky," and forgiving. She has no stop, buck, rear, or rude behaviors. She happily and quickly bonds with her "person."
