Quality 10 y.o. gelding with careful style & Grand Prix scope. Jumped the 1.45 Speed Stake & 1.40m Speed Derby at 2017 Devon, pinned in the 1.40m at Ocala this year, and has a long history of Jr/AO Jumper wins at WEF, Ocala & beyond. Does the job great and has been a trooper for many different riders. Easy and rideable, lovely uphill balance, bold and brave to the fences. Takes you a bit and makes sure you get to the jumps. Great blood for competitive riders and ready to be a consistent 1.40m+ horse. Simple & hard-working, handles great and is quiet in the stable too.

Contreau VDL

Contreau VDL

Imported with 1.40m experience and the brain of a 3’ medal horse, could go either way for the owner. Nice presence in the show ring and a stylish jumper that will never run out of scope in the medals. Huge step, does the open water, ready-to-go Jr/AOs or Talent Search. Very steady and kind and has some show miles in the 12-14 Equitation & Childrens Jumpers. Nice versatility for a junior to ride through the Big Eq and into the Jr/AO Jumpers.
