Kiwi Corona (Cuba) is a 10-year-old, 16.3hh (169cm) bay mare. She is sired by Corofino II out of a Distelfink mare.

Cuba epitomises sophistication. She is a truly classic type conformationally, and a powerful, forwards European ride. She had beautiful 6 year old season with her previous owner, and I was privileged to do several seasons on her to teach me the ropes of the 1.25 classes as a young rider. I can accredit Cuba for significantly improved style in my ride, being such a scopey, together horse.

She went mildly unsound in the 2020 season, and has not been campaigning since. This is a reluctant sale as I am at university and cannot justify having such an undeniably gorgeous mare sitting in the paddock at home.

Cuba would make a fantastic broodmare, and has spent time babysitting youngstock, always exhibiting kindness and patience. I would love to have put her in foal, but cannot do so due to isolated geographical location.

For the right rider who enjoys sitting on a big, professional type ride, there is no reason why Cuba does not have a future hacking, in the show hunter ring, and potentially hunting.

Truly sweet and superb, this mare will be a welcome addition to be the dream ride, or alternatively to someone's breeding program.
