Cix Degrees HH, MMPS, MPT-S
Cix Degrees HH is a 2012, Main Mare Premium Select Holsteiner mare. She was the site champion at her large inspection, obtaining the high score of 50 bonits, which put her on the list of top scoring mares on the inspection tour. She also received free-jumping scores of 9,8,8. As a two-year old she was second in a large free-jumping class at the Chicago Young Horse Show Series show, with a score of 8.1, which put her #6 in the overall series ranking for that year. In 2018 Cix began competing under the saddle of Ryan Genn, showing and winning in the 6 Year Old Young Jumper Classes. She finished her 2018 show season ranked in the top-twenty Six Year Old Young Jumpers, and has achieved her Mare Performance Testing Title, via her sport results. She is currently competing in the 1.35m jumpers with her amatuer adult leasee, and recently was in the money in both her first Welcome Stakes and her first Jumper Prix.
In 2016, as a four year old, Cix produced her first foal, by Diamant de Semilly; he received a Premium foal designation from the American Holsteiner Horse Association and has just recently jumper around at his first show, bringing home a few blue ribbons! Cix also showed one time after weaning her foal, at the Young Horse Show series, where she received an 8.2 in the jump chute, and ended up fourth in the nation for the year, as well as third in the country for the in-hand class. In 2017 Cix produced two foals via embryo transfer; a colt by Jaguar Mail, sold in utero and a filly by Zirocco Blue, retained for our program. Both foals received Premium awards at their Holsteiner inspection!
Cix Degree's dam had a successful career in the Young Jumper ring as a five year old, before beginning her broodmare career. She herself is a Main Mare Premium mare, and was the Zone 7 Five-Year Old Young Jumper Champion with limited showing. Her dam was Princess Queenie, a daughter of Margie Engle's famous Grand Prix mare, Caribbean Queen.
