Chaplin is a fantastic example of Verdi TN’s offspring at the highest level. Ridden by reigning European champion and number two in the world Martin Fuchs, Chaplin is one of world’s most successful showjumpers. The stallion won no less than three CSI5* Global Champions Tour Grand Prix competitions: Mexico City in 2017, Madrid in 2019 and Estoril in 2019. Chaplin was also victorious at prestigious CSI5* shows such as Helsinki, Shanghai, Zurich and Doha.
For a decade, sire Verdi TN was one of the best showjumpers in the Netherlands ridden by Maikel van der Vleuten and took part in no less than eleven major championships, including two Olympic Games. Besides Chaplin, offspring such as New York, Chief, Cuidam, Varoune, Evita SG Z, Catwalk Harry and Fleurette compete at the highest level.
Chaplin’s successes are no surprise. Dam Jaltha B is a daughter of the ‘Preferent’ awarded Concorde and jumped herself at 1.35m-level. Her dam Caltha B produced among others the Grand Prix showjumper Twilight Zeldenrust and is granddam of the successful Personality Zeldenrust and Picolien Zeldenrust. Ridden by Wesley Heijdens, Personality Zeldenrust became European Champion for Young Riders in 2007, while Picolien Zeldenrust with Doda de Miranda won many international classes.
The now 14-year-old Chaplin has never been used for breeding before, but given his fantastic pedigree and brilliant sports career, he seems a very interesting addition to the stud. Chaplin has all the qualities as a showjumper and also distinguishes himself by his mentality, rideability and spirit in the arena.
