Chicago ECPH is a lovely modern type with a fantastic nature and plenty of quality. He has three powerful paces, a great jump and is a beautiful horse to have around. He has been professionally started under saddle by Logan Massie and is ready to further his ridden career. “Chicago was very easy to start being an intelligent horse with a sensible brain. He has had extensive driving and has hacked happily all around the farm by himself and in company. He has jumped under saddle also and was brave, correct and gave you a great feeling.” – Logan Massie.

By New Zealand’s supersire Corofino ll, who is the sire of the sensational Windermere Cappuccino, who has won multiple World Cup Series, and McCaw MVNZ, who is campaigning very successfully in America at 1.50m level.
