NAS is proud to announce their new partnership with Cajero Equestrian and Equine in Jiashan, Jiaxin, Zhejiang Province in China. After a short, but very fruitful visit to Jiaxan, one hour west of Shanghai, Cajero’s owner, Yi Zhang and NAS’s Jean-Yves Tola sealed a partnership that promises a long and successful future.
NAS will be registering over 30 young horses to startm and is now in the process of approving six stallions. In the next few years, NAS will dedicate their experience to support Yi’s breeding program and also possibly facilitate the start of a Young Horse Show Series as well. “I was very impressed with the overall quality of the horses and their potential, as well as the professional atmosphere at the barn” said Jean-Yves Tola. “Yi and I got along and understood each other right away I believe, and we accomplished a lot in just a couple of days. I am very excited about this project and NAS is looking forward to the future with Yi, Cajero and China.”
Zhang’s flagship stallion, Cajero (Come Back II x Limebrand), bred by Peter Jensen, who is Danish Warmblood approved, has stamped his foals at the farm and his line will definitely be remarkable. NAS looked at five stallion prospects and the preliminary reviews are very promising. Yi, a long time student of Anky van Grunsven is also working on a dressage program. Her manager and trainer, Wu Shiun Ting, supervises the jumping and the combination of the two makes for a very solid training program.
According to Yi, “When I found NAS, I emailed Mr. Tola immediately. I got his reply the second day with all the information that I needed. I found that NAS is the most efficient studbook that I’ve ever worked with. The meeting we had in China went very well and I believe that it would bring a good future for the equine market in China”.
Jean-Yves Tola and everyone at NAS would like to thank Yi and her staff for a wonderful welcome and experience in China. We are looking forward for a second trip.
