Meet ZAR

Tall, dark and handsome, Zar Menorqui is a 2009, 17.1 hand registered PRMe black stallion. He was a proven stallion in Menorca with 7 colts, 1 filly and throws his height, fluid movements and athleticism to his offspring. In 2022, his son Lotus, won first place at the Menorcan Breed Championships for his movements. In 2024, his son Menut, won first place as well at the Menorcan Breed Championships. 

Zar comes from a long line of competitive dressage horses. While in Menorca, he competed in Menorcan dressage shows with excellent marks and was listed as a recommended stallion two years in a row. He also participated in traditional Menorcan festivals where he would demonstrate the “bot”, where they rear and walk on their back legs. 

Here in the US, Zar is proving to be a well rounded, athletic horse that is excited to try new things. He has competed in recognized and schooling dressage shows, working equitation shows, and has given many Menorcan Dressage demonstrations along the east coast. 

• 2021 Equine Affaire in Massachusetts – Zar met new fans in the breed barn throughout the show and gave an impressive Menorcan Dressage demonstration to an intrigued crowd in the coliseum.

• In 2022, he wowed the crowd during his Menorcan Dressage demonstration under the trees at Magnolia Shadows Farm in Aiken, SC. 

• Fall 2023, he competed in-hand at the Dressage at Devon Breed Show scoring an impressive 71% for his confirmation. Although unfamiliar with this new breed, the judges were impressed with his look and movements.

• The dressage world is taking notice and in the spring of 2024 the PR Menorcan Horse USA Association was invited to put on a demonstration at the welcome party for the 3* Mid Atlantic Dressage Festival in Lexington, VA.
