    Rode a few of both sexes of Zab babies back in the 90's. The geldings were very sensible, calm, willing and trainable. The fillies were very sensitive, super-smart and the ones I've followed have been good Mums (2).

    I really liked Zabaleta as a stallion. His progeny were very competitve.

    i have come across a few Zabaletta horses. One called Benzaba who was a little chestnut and was a bit of a nut. He went ok, won a few races but would be lathered in sweat within seconds of arriving at the races. I used to have to walk him the entire time we were there. He also pulled like a train, until I discoved that he relaxed when ridden on the buckle. I got so sick of him pulling one day that I just threw the rains at him and said go for it. I think it confused the hell out of him lol. I managed to calm him right down so he was a different horse by literally holding the buckle on the reigns every time I rode him. Only problem was that he stopped winning races!

    The other one that I can recall of the top of my head, I cant remember his racing name, was trained by Toby Roney. He was a big clumsy boy. He would trip over his own feet, he was also a little strong and forward moving. He didnt do much good as a racehorse. Both of them where the most beautiful natured horses, very loving. Ben wasnt your typical zabaletta horse though, the other zabalettas Ive known where all strong big boned horses whereas Ben was little and compact.

    Those horses sound like my boy:eek: he pulls like a freight train unless ridden on on a loose rein and he is very lazy with his feet falls over
    everything but he is sweet and loves cuddles but very forward moving most of the time. He is also got a bit of bone not alot and he is very long in the body with a big head . Thanks so much :D:))**)

    I once saw one of his sisters and my god they looked the same . Same face, body and looks

    I put a picture so show what i mean with the long head ect . He is turning 20 this year :D

    Here is a mare by Zabaleta.
    She has a fantastic temperament and is good to have around. She has a foal at foot now and is a very good mum.
    My friend also used to own a gorgeous mare by him who sadly passed away about 4 years ago due to paddock accident.

    Hi there I have a beautiful old grey gelding by Zabaleta. He was talented and versatile. Won/placed from everything from campdrafting, showjumping, hacking, dressage, eventing and even tried out clerk of the course. He was too slow to be a racehorse! But lovely mover. Would love to wind the clock back on him! Zabaleta started his stud career at Heytesbury and as time went on and he proved non successful in his siring endeavours he was relocated to Fairfields Stud. He was a sweet old horse. Old Zab was a heavy boned chunky horse from memory.
    Haulpet was a Haulpak mare who produced a listed stakes winner in Star Pet.
    All the best with yours :)
