He was one of the most decorated Hunter under saddle horses in Europe and yet his story is also characterized by many setbacks and hard fights: The brown gelding with the short but memorable name Technology was bred by Alexandra Jagfeld – then a teenager – and owned by the Jagfeld family until his death. From causing some arguments within the Jagfeld family to conquering the Hunter under saddle classes in Europe, “Jerry” has lived a short but adventurous show life. Alexandra Jagfeld has told us the story of this exceptional gelding that passed away last year.
She was something special in Europe because of her breeding: Centrisity (CK Kid x Everything) was one of the few halter horses in Europe. She has been undefeated in most of the classes she entered and took home 73 wins in 81 Open classes, 71 wins in 76 Amateur classes, stood Grand Champion 61 times in each division. The sorrel mare, born in 2009, was third at the AQHA World Show in Weanling mares with Erin Bradshaw and fifth at the AQHYA World Show in Yearling mares with Leonie Fischer. “Panzi”, as she was called by the Fischer family, was named European Champion six times and German Champion six times. Leonie and Centrisity won every class they entered with one exception, which made 57 wins in total. Furthermore, Centrisity was named Grand Champion in the Youth division 49 times. It is hard to talk about the sudden passing of the mare for the Fischer family – until today – as Centrisity was “very special to us”, Leonie stresses. However, Leonie thinks that “Panzi” deserves a tribute which why she told us the story of this outstanding halter mare.
