The international pony Callas Rezidal Z changes saddle

29 December 2020

Callas Rezidal Z is a famous name on the national and international pony circuit! The excellent grey became well-known under the saddle of Ilona Mezzadri, her rider for almost three years. In 2018, the pair was champion of France in As Pony Elite Excellence and repeated the feat the following year before leaving the European championships of Strzegom with two bronze medals, in individual and team. The Ile-de-France rider turned sixteen in 2020 and was unable to take part in her last European pony championship following its cancellation due to the pandemic. The girls distinguished themselves one last time together at the CSIOP in Fontainebleau in August, where they won gold in the Nations Cup. Last September, Campione's daughter made a short appearance under the saddle of Emma Koltz in Amateur events before starting the Super Ace in Barbizon.

Callas Rezidal Z, the Zangersheide representative among the ponies, is changing rider but remains under French colors according to EquestrianNews! She appeared under the saddle of a certain Léo Nerzic at the federal stage of Lamotte-Beuvron, which is currently in progress. We should note that a few months ago this Breton rider got Ken van Orchid (Kanshebber) back, Ilona Mezzadri’s second mount.
