The Gulliksen-family has strengthened their string of horses, buying the 12-year-old Zinius and the 11-year-old Arakorn.

Zinius (Nabab de Reve x Kannan) has been produced up to five-star Grand Prix level by Dutch rider Doron Kuipers, and recently the pair finished third in the CSIO5* Nations Cup in Gijon after an impressive performance that saw them jumping clear in the last round. The two were also second in the CSIO5* Bunn Leisure Trophy at Hickstead in August, and third in the CSI4* Grand Prix in Poznan in June – to mention some of many good results lately. Now, Victoria Gulliksen takes over the reins.

"I have had Zinius since he was 6-years-old. He was one of a kind; a horse with a special character and a real fighter. We made it to this level together; it was new for him and new for me – so we brought each other there. I really hope Victoria will have a lot of success with him," Kuipers says to World of Showjumping.

While Victoria takes over the reins on Zinius, it will be her father Geir that gets in the saddle of Arakorn (Cantos x Damiro). Arakorn has been competed by Dutch rider Jelmer Hoekstra, and recently finished second in the CSI3* Grand Prix in Opglabbeek as well as recording several other top results this season.
