Exciting candidate for the future. Leo is a 2017 Balou du Rouet son out of a Colbert GTI mare that the breeder herself has jumped to 1.40m. He has great early exposure in the Young Horse Show series, placing 2nd in a large yearling class & qualifying for both phases of the 2019 2 y.o. Finals with a terrific performance in the jump chute. His flashy markings & bright copper coat make a grand statement in the ring & he is showing great promise as a hunter over fences. He is free through the shoulder, naturally engaged behind, and confident when jumping. He has lunged in full tack & is being introduced to other age-appropriate concepts. Mentally, he will be ready to sit on by the end of this year, as prep for a true start at age 3.

Leo has a great grasp of ground manners & enjoys the attention of his people. He is good for the farrier & trimmed every 5-6 weeks. He loads & rides well in the trailer & unloads quietly at the destination. He is good for braiding & mane-pulling & vacuuming, though he loves & prefers a good curry. He likes to get to know his people & is still curious about all the new things in life, but overall he is an easy & agreeable youngster that offers plenty to love.

Currently 15.2h heading into the fall of his 2nd year, Leo is anticipated to finish as a medium-sized horse with wide sprung ribs. He is an excellent candidate for investment & re-sale or riding out your own competitive dreams. Buyer should have experience developing quality young sport horses, though his temperament allows for an experienced amateur working with a qualified professional.
