Congratulations to Guy McElvain and Rancho Corazon of Lemitar, New Mexico, on the purchase of the grand prix jumper Acrobaat Z from Cross Creek Farms. Guy was very excited to acquire a horse with the scope and talent of this young Zangersheide gelding and has plans to compete in the Grand Prix ring this summer.
Cross Creek Farms purchased Acrobaat late in 2007 – impressed by his scope and brilliant technique. Competing in California and Arizona, he started the season with some nice wins, including a 1st place at his very first horse show with Michelle indoors at the LA National in January in the 1.4M jumper division. More recently he scored good prizes at the 2008 Arizona Winter Festival horse show, including a 2nd place finish in the Friday $5,000 Open Welcome and topped off by a 3rd place finish in Sunday’s $25,000 Grand Prix on March 9, 2008.
