Cortes C Show Jumper (retired)
INTERNATIONAL HORSE OF THE YEAR
Top show jumper Beezie Madden has been paired with Cortes C, owned by Abigail Wexner, since 2011. He is a 2002 Belgian Warmblood gelding. With wins at the Ruby et Violette WEF and the FTI Consulting WEF, they went on to clinch victory for the US in the Furusiyya FEI Nations Cup, and another in the The Longines King George V Gold Cup. At the 2014 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games, Cortes was ridden in the "Final Four" competition, jumping four clear rounds and earning the "Best Horse" title, and Madden the bronze medal. In honor of Cortes C, Breyer will be making a donation to The Center for Family Safety and Healing, which supports victims of domestic violence.
