The rumor has now been confirmed: the stallion Cashpaid J&F (Casall x Chicago I Z x Concerto II) is leaving Nathan Budd and Belgium to join Karl Cook in the United States. This, however, is not the end of a beautiful story but just a goodbye. The very promising Holsteiner who made a strong impression at the end of the Summer in Deauville in his first three stars at the Belgian Senior Championship in Lanaken will return to Belgium at the end of his career. He will now be able to enjoy his retirement and devote himself to breeding.
The sale of this nine-year-old horse was by no means a foregone conclusion, but reason prevailed. A beautiful confirmation of a trust relationship between a young rider and his owners who were able to develop him to the top level.
This is huge page in the life of Nathan Budd, but he still wants to be positive: “I’m sad because I’m losing more than a horse. He’s really a friend, the first one I see every morning, but I completely understand my owner’s decision and I can only thank her for keeping him so long.”
