Zarusa is a 2004 filly by Navarone out of Rarusa, an Indoctro mare. She is very powerful and has good form going over jumps. She has very fluid and powerful gaits. She has a very friendly personality and is easy for an amateur to ride. Zarusa has an outstanding potential as a jumper or hunter. The combination of Zarusa’s great work ethic and athletic ability will make her a very successful competitor in the upper level jumping, equitation and hunter. She is easy and fun to work with.
She trained with Aaron Vale for most of 2011. She has been competed at major shows such as Roanoke Valley and Saugerties. In 2011, Zarusa entered 23 low jumper (under 1.15) classes (class sizes ranged from 7-75) and placed in the ribbons 50% of the time. In 2012, Zarusa entered nine classes in Ocala and placed in the ribbons twice.
Zarusa’s sire, Navarone, is out of Jus de Pomme, a two time Olympic gold medalist in jumping. Her dam sire (Indoctro) is one of the top 10 jumper stallions in the world. Her dam, Rarusa, is a Keur mare that received the highest set of overall scores for dressage and jumper horses during the North American evaluations of 3-7 year old mares.
