Chiqa T is a 49 point premium mare out of our imported mare Zorah by the much sought after Fox Fire Farm stallion Linaro. Chiqa competed in the Young Horse Show series as a 3yr old and was quite successful, winning her class at the Kansas City show. At her approvals her free jumping scores were 8's for scope, technique and willingness. She was started under saddle and displayed a lovely, forward, willing attitude under saddle before her injury.
Linaro's Stamm 18A2 is one of Holsteins most famous. He was the champion of his 100 day test in Germany and was selected for the German riding horse championships. In 1997 he produced the champion stallion at the Holsteiner Verband approvals in Neumunster. Linaro is probably best known as a damsire. He appears numerous times in the pedigrees of approved stallions most notably Dechirico whose son topped the Verband riding horse auction at 200,000 Euros in 2012. Linaro not only passes on great jumping ability his offspring display outstanding gaits. A testament to his breeding prowess he was approved into the Hannoverian Verband for his ability to add elegance and movement to the mare base. Successful Grand Prix competitors include his daughter Inara and Leondor who won the $25,000 Devoucoux Wild Card Grand Prix and placed 3rd at the $30,000 HITS Commonwealth National Grand Prix.
Chiqa T's dam Zorah comes from a long line of succesful competitors and proven producers. Her dam Dolce Vita is the mother of the Verband approved stallion Ramirado, one of Germany's top producers of approved mares. Zorah's sire Clearway competed successfully on the international scene with Lars Bak Andersen placing in the prestigious shows in Neumuenster and Braunschweig. Clearways dam Wodka II was particularly prolific producing three other approved sons Conway I and II and Arturo as well as Chika's Way by Caretino who had multiple succeses in the international arena under Olympian Janne Fredericke Meyer. Zorah's full sister Wildrose is jumping successfully at Grand Prix in Europe.
Chiqa displays an elegant type and lovely elastic movement. Her unflappable attitude and generous disposition are a testament to her good breeding.
