Monte Cillo is a long-lined, modern young horse with excellent movement and natural ability through the chute. He has been well worked with and shows a willing temperament and good trainability. He has been allowed to grow up in a herd setting getting plenty of exercise and socialization. Monte Cillo will excel in the jumper ring with his ground covering canter, good technique, and ample scope.

Monte Cillo's sire Tempranillo competed very successfully in the dressage ring as well as the jumpers to 3rd level and 1.40m respectively. He is the sire of KVF Elle Carrera who has stepped into the FEI 1.45m in 2018. He is also the dam sire of Hooz Du Kat who is moving up the levels as a 6-year-old, being several times champion at the 1.20m level. Tempranillo has several other offspring being ridden and shown by their amateur riders in the hunter and jumper rings.

Monte Cillo's dam Verzay Z is a large-framed, impressive mare who was successfully shown to the 1.50m level in Europe before being imported to Canada and continuing her Grand Prix show jumping career. She is producing substantial offspring with the upper levels of show jumping in mind. Her 2016 Zeno gelding has been sold as a GP jumper prospect as has her 2019 Don Quixote filly, and her 2018 Tacorde filly has been retained by Klondike Victory Farm as a Grand Prix prospect. This mare's offspring are extremely interesting for the upper levels of sport.
