Lynna Maas has sold her 14-year old internationally competed Grand Prix horse to the Dutch based Japanese dressage rider Satishi Maeda.

Zamora is bred by G Verhoeven and is by Krack C out of Mora (by Farrington).

Under Lynne Maas the long-legged chestnut gelding represented The Netherlands at the 2010 World Young Horse Championships in Verden, where they finished 7th in the Finals. They were the Dutch Fourth Level Champions in 2011 and earned bronze at the 2012 Dutch small tour Championships.

They made his international FEI level show debut at small tour level at the CDIO Rotterdam in June 2012. They went on to show in Leudelange three months later and then took almost two year off from international shows to prepare for Grand Prix.

Their CDI Grand Prix debut was at the 2014 CDIO Rotterdam, where they were 14th. They only did one GP show that year.  The pair's most active CDI show year was in 2015 when they showed in Vidauban, 's Hertogenbosch, Rossendaal and Maastricht. They did one show in 2016 (Den Bosch) and one in 2017 (Uggerhalne), but no CDI's this year. 

Maas and Zamora were B-squad listed for The Netherlands. Lynne, who recently ended her engagement to Laurens van Lieren and moved stables, decided to sell her gelding as she has two younger Grand Prix horses coming along.
