Chica B Z, auctioned in 2015, has been paired with Mexican rider Arturo Parada Vallejo since the beginning of this year and their first Grand Prix victory is already a fact! They were unbeatable in the 1.55m Grand Prix of CSI4* Coapexpan. DSHS references such as Viper Z and Coronado have also achieved good results in recent weeks.

Chica B Z also performs remarkably in Mexican service. Under Arturo Parada Vallejo, Chica B Z first jumped to a top-ten result in the 1.50m class last weekend, and won the 1.55m Grand Prix on Sunday.
