He is showing huge ability, combined with an excellent temperament. Cevin Z his sire was bred by the prestigious Zangersheide Stud and carries double crosses in his pedigree of both Cor de la Bryere and Capitol I.

His pedigree sets him apart and combined with his talent and temperament ha has proven to be an ideal producer of high class sports horses, especially show jumpers and eventers.

His first crop of young stock were placed first and second at the Young Horse Championships in 2006. He has competed successfully with William Funnell at International level. His youngstock are achieving top class results in both show jumping and eventing at international level.

Bidorette the mother of Billy Mexico is a proven broodmare having produced numerous good foals, in particular the approved stallion Fervent, a proven sire who achieved over $20.00.00 in winnings and also Libro who jumped to Foxhunter level, with BSJA winnings of £974.00. Libro also excels as a dressage horse with 250 points and is working at advanced medium level.

This graded AES chestnut stallion has well proven progeny.  2008 was Billy Mexico’s first season at stud and as he was only a 3yr old the stud only covered six mares with him, but the crop have been outstanding.

William said “From what we have seen of Mexico’s progeny so far we are very excited about him as a breeding stallion. Considering we only covered the six mares the first year, all the offspring have shown his super technique and great brain”. Of the six, two were sold to Norway as 4yr olds and both have been consistently in the results.
