In 2001, she ended her career after the World Championship for Young riders in Spain. She completed 8 races of 160 km and she was never eliminated.

Krizia then went on to become a broodmare, and is the mother of numerous stars in endurance, including the excellent mare Khiva by Waracz, born in 1993. Khiva won the bronze medal at the Belgian National Championship in 2002, over a distance of 160 km. and was twice in the Top 10 at major rides such as Moulins Engilbert, Florac – Lalbenque – Sommant.

After finishing her sports career, Khiva also became a broodmare and is the dam of potential future endurance horses such as:

  • Krianza: born in 2004, sire Waracz
  • Krézus: born in 2005, sire Djain (Djelfor x Varoussa, world champion in 2002, daughter of Persik)
  • Krypton: born in 2007, sire Pamir El Milora (Milora Park Blue Fire x Movoska: both winners at the 160 km)
  • Krizos: born in 2008, sire Pamir El Milora
