Purebred Arabian Stallion
by the outstanding Arabian Stallion AAZRAK
out of Lamia-Kay
Enzio has proven himself a versatile sire of Eventers, Dressage
Horses, Working Hunters, Driving Horses, etc. having competed himself in these
disciplines very successfully during his lifetime.
Enzio competed successfully in Dressage through Fourth Level,
evented through Preliminary division, Combined Driving and even some Competitive
Trail. Few horses given every possible chance in the competitive arena accomplish
as much or show such versatility. When owner Ann McKay was forced to compete
Enzio at Training Level due to an injury to her back, they came in 2nd three
times to a USET team rider with the difference in penalty points being less
than 2 points for the three events! Ann's daughter Chris also competed Enzio
at Prelim before he retired from eventing.
Enzio's success as a sport horse is hardly suprising, given his
sire's show record and his dam's breeding. Lamia-Kay was out of Never Die Holly,
a product of the Asmis breeding program. The partnership of Carl Asmis and Never
Die Holly's sire Rafmirz was well-known for elegant exhibitions of FEI level
dressage. Lamia-Kay's sire Ibn Baruk was a great-grandson of *Sulejman and *Fadl,
who were both athletic and versatile riding horses. Ibn Baruk also had lines
through his dam to action sire *Berk and multiple crosses to the exceptional
hunter *Naomi through the inbred mare Haaranmin.
