About Zapatero VDL: 

Zapatero’s dam is the ‘Elite and Sport’ mare Manieta. She competed under the name Brugman’s Princess at International level and won the Dutch Championship for 4-year olds. Grand dam Anita received the ‘Prestatie’ predicate, partly through the international jumper Orlando.

As a 3-year old Zapatero was Reserve Champion at the Stallion inspection and as a 4-year old he was Reserve Champion in the Stallion Competition at 1.10m level. Three years later, Zapatero was a finalist in the Dutch Championship for 7-years old Jumpers, and 2nd in the finals of the Youngster Tour at Geesteren.
