Janna is proud to present this RARE, hard to find 6 yr old 1st premie gelding sporting the highly coveted SPORT predicate, bestowed ONLY on horses that have earned 5 or more points in Z level (3rd level) dressage. Jitze has been extensively shown in dressage competitions in Holland. He has worked up through the levels with a young amateur rider, NOT a professional dressage trainer--further proving the HORSE'S ability (not the riders'), and is now a true dressage schoolmaster. 166 cm tall. This horse is so friendly and easy to ride, even in noisy traffic..... no problem for Jitze! He has accumulated a tremendous list of wins, competing against primarily warmbloods! His gaits are superb and VERY smooth and easy to sit. This is a son of WORLD GRAND CHAMPION, Beart SPORT and Preferent!
...this guy is a SHOW STOPPER....
Check out his trot!!!! and Extension---woo--hooo, there isn't another horse in America that can touch this fella! He is truly an exquisite mover!!! He moves very freely out of his shoulder. He travels very well, and behaves at shows, and is loads of fun, Janna will keep this one, if not sold quickly, he is just THAT special:)
He is easy for an amateur, good enough for a professional---- will give you goosebumps when you ride him. Jitze's ability in dressage is indisputable. He currently has more than 5 winning points in Z Dressage (all exercises of 3rd level-without changes), which means he HAS to be scoring above 60%, as he has rec'd the coveted SPORT predicate which is proof of his upper level dressage capability. We love his canter--it is a "10"!!!
There are actually very few Friesians in N America that have attained the highly coveted SPORT predicate. Jitze really has special movement. He has the LOOKS and aptitude that make him special----he has never come home from a competition WITHOUT winning points (he beats warmbloods in dressage!),and is always in the top standings. Spacious step, talented extended trot, uphill canter. Jitze is super obedient, very reliable and easy going, and he is fine in any setting, and in the pasture. He has enough quality for an ambitious horseman / horsewoman to really do FEI level work in dressage, but he is brave enough for an amateur looking for the finest Friesian. He is excellent for the farrier, dentist, etc., and of course, up to date on vaccinations. Jitze is a lot like my personal horse, Ate (sired by Jasper SPORT)--- who I won 11 world and national championships with (he is now 17 yrs old and retired). Jitze is sired by Beart SPORT Preferent, who is Jasper’s most famous son—who BEATS his daddy, Jasper, at the Stallion Show every year, and was crowned World Grand Champion in 2006, Reserve World Grand Champion in 2008, World Champion of the older stallions and Reserve World Grand Champion in 2012, World Champion of the older stallions in 2013, and Horse of the year in 2014.
If you are looking for a partner with an excellent character and temperament, Jitze SPORT is for you. This talented gelding stems from very good bloodlines of friesian sport horses. And he has a thorough pre-purchase and clinical x-rays---37 radiographs taken in jan, 2017. [all clean and INCLUDING back and neck] and available for review with your vet.
He is elastic, intelligent, FORWARD, hard working, and extremely athletic. He can go all the way up the levels, and is one of the highest level dressage friesians, and youngest, on the market in the US. Jitze has a sweet personality, loves to work, loves being outside, and has the charisma that will make him a stand out anywhere.
At his last competition in Z level (3rd level), Jitze received and "8" for walk and trot, AND and "8" for his Extended trot:):):)
He has loads of hock articulation and is really an elegant mover. You can see why this boy has excelled in dressage--he is built for perfection with uphill conformation. Jitze is a lovely BEART son - he loves people and attention. We hope his new owner has a lot time to spend with him and gives him much attention and love, this boy DESERVES it!!
Don't miss this one of a kind LONG haired spectacular SPORT gelding that is competing in Z (3rd level) dressage!! Jitze HAS JUST ARRIVED FROM EUROPE!
And boy-- look at the videoclips of this guy.... Talk about moving well off the hocks... this boy is a "10"!!! Look at the running free photos... they speak for themselves. And then, when under saddle, he is all business.... right on the bit, perfect frame, soft in the mouth, free in the shoulder, with that rare ability to really extend and reach. 1st Premie.
