Very special trick trained gelding!! With VERY VERY long hair--- has that RARE Fairytale look!!:)
Currently 9 years old and EXTREMELY tall (170 cm!!!) gelding, M Level Dressage---(which is 2nd level, folks), trick trained , trained to driven, just under 17 hands, and all good xrays taken last year.
This is an extremely RARE opportunity to acquire a fully TRICK TRAINED gelding that is a Lovely All Around Pleasure/Trail/Dressage Horse, fully vetted recently and xrays available for review with your vet.
This mature and experienced gelding has an Incredible Pedigree!!!!!!!
Motherline is stellar:
Stam line 44, with a LOW 3.91% inbreeding co-efficient
Verdi is intelligent and friendly, a big IMPRESSIVE gelding with noble and jaw dropping looks, correct and strong conformation-----in short, a gorgeous Friesian, a real head -turner, that is trained to lay down, bow, kneel, spanish walk, etc. Loads of mane reaching his knees, with a long forelock, heavy tail and feathered legs. He has outstanding ground manners, being very respectful of his handler's and their personal space, and is accustomed to being handled by small children. His upright conformation allows him to bring his hind legs well under himself. His movement is very swingy and light to the rider.
Verdi is a lovely forward moving Friesian, not a spooky horse, but he's also not a lazy Friesian with no forward, that requires whips and spurs. He has quite a bit of experience in harness. He has driven as a single, in pairs and as a 3-in-hand (two wheel horses, one in front). He also driven in a marathon.
Dressage riders that have ridden/shown Verdi have all really loved him and were thrilled with how quickly he learns---- doing all kinds of things in a short period of time. From lateral movements- to his really nice canter, Verdi is super sweet, kind, and giving; wanting to please his rider at all times.
This fairytale looking friesian, now being offered for sale, is very light in his movement, and light in his contact, and his personality is priceless. He is a trooper out on trails and very courageous and curious in any situation.
Verdi is not only ideally build uphill with a strong, short coupled back, but he also has the talent and, most importantly, the enthusiastic work ethic, to go all the way in dressage, if his rider so chooses. He really likes to work, and never gets tired!
He is a truly exceptional opportunity for a rider looking for a BEAUTIFUL experienced gelding, that is fully TRICK TRAINED, with EXTREMELY LONG hair, at an experienced mature age of 9 yrs old, with clean vetcheck and xrays.
We hardly EVER get trick trained LONG haired friesians with this much experience under their belt, like Verdi, and when we do, they just dont last! Call janna at 415-272-2112 for more info.
