2018 EquiRatings Horse of the Year: Z Needs Your Vote!

It’s hard to believe, but we’ve made it through another exciting season of eventing. That means it’s time for the 4th Annual EquiRatings Horse of the Year contest. You’ve done the Americans proud before — voting Loughan Glen to the top in 2015 and crowning Donner last year — and now it’s time to go to bat for the stars and stripes once again.

Known by only one letter, Phillip Dutton’s WEG mount Z is among the 12 in the running and he needs your vote! In round one, the Z Partnership’s 10-year-old Zangersheide (Asca X Bellabouche, by Babouche VH Gehucht Z) faces Ballaghmor Class.

A win at the WEG test event at Tryon set the tone for Z’s sparkling season. He followed that up with a top five finish at Kentucky, his first four-star, and 13th as WEG as the highest-placing U.S. horse. Of course, he did all this without any rails coming down.

The Class of 2018 features a slew of heavy hitters including Allstar B, Classic Moet, Mr. Chunky and many more. It’s hard to imagine picking one from this talented lot. To vote, simply click on the horse’s photo in the polls at the bottom of this post. Round one ends this weekend, so do your thing, EN!
