This incredibly well-bred competition horse is out of the renowned warmblood stallion Porsch with no less than the top late stallions, Cruising and Seacrest, on the Irish dam’s side. Consequently there was a lot of interest in him from the eventing and show jumping riders at the Goresbridge sales.
However he is a quiet and kind soul, which is why we noticed him, too quiet for the competition market. Zeus, whose registered name is Platinum Porsch, had been beautifully and thoughtfully produced by the chap who was selling him; calmly and confidently jumping a course of fences, including balanced turn-backs, producing flying and simple changes as well as showing off some lateral work. This is not the norm in Ireland!
Zeus oddly had his eye on us throughout the sale and we were thankful that his lack of flamboyant jumping enabled him to be sold into the lower level market, so we were able to afford him.
