This is One in a MILLION STER gelding, 16.3 hands TALL, was in the 70 day test and nearly became an approved, making it to the last 10... and this boy has MORE quality than some APPROVED stallions---this is the MOST talented sporthorse in Friesian form that we have seen in a LONG TIME.... now 3rd level dressage (and although he nearly became an approved stallion, he is NOW a STER GELDING) with MUCH dressage show experience, and a HEART OF GOLD. Olie is a VERY special boy with FEI potential for your consideration.....
We are very excited about this special guy. He is extremely talented with a remarkable work ethic. Olie is already schooling flying lead changes, piaffe and passage. Not only is he extremely talented and posesses a real eagerness to please, he is a real stunner to look at, and riders just cant stop smiling when they are on his back! Everyone at Baywood says: "Janna, dont sell THIS one---he is the BEST you have ever imported!" If you are looking for a once in a lifetime fairytale Friesian that is ALSO the most talented/willing boy you have ever seen, Olie is IT! His attitude and FEEL that he gives the rider/driver is second to none!
And Olie has lots of competition experience competing in the upper levels, AND driving.
He is incredibly easy to sit, and goes equally as well in a snaffle, as a double bridle! His gaits are sooooo smooth, excellent if you have lower back problems. Here is a drive off the show room floor kind of horse ready to show THIS season, with SO MUCH TALENT and EXPERIENCE and a proven show record, full set of good recent xrays available for review with your vet, with many years ahead of him. Perfect in every way is the only way to describe Olie!
His registered name is Olbert van Hilberalti (we call him "Olie" for short.) He is currently 7 years old and Olie truly is a gorgeous, 16.3 hand tall, beautiful built STER gelding with a VERY long mane and a very thick tail, UPHILL build, and a stellar work ethic. He is very sweet and easy to handle---we have a 1st level rider that rides him once a week with no difficulty. Here is a horse that is just so nice to work with, EVERYONE falls in love with him. He ALSO has such elastic movements!! TALENT TALENT TALENT!! Pretty amazing extended trot. His canter is also very VERY good; excellent collections and extensions.
Olie was chosen for the stallion test and went to the 70 day test. He made it to the last 10 stallions. And to be honest I think they should have approved him! Needless to say, this is pretty darn good 3rd party verification that the very BEST Judges in Holland think this boy has the BEST conformation, BEST movement, BEST temperament, BEST health/vet records and radiographs---- of all horses in Europe! Hard to beat THAT endorsement....and this 170 cm TALL impressive fairytale looking boy (now ster GELDING) is 3rd level dressage AND excellent to drive AND now located in the san francisco bay area for you to see and try!
Olbert is EXCEPTIONALLY SWEET and people oriented. He will stand perfectly still for LONG grooming sessions---which you will need, as he has LONG HAIR!!! He LOVES trails and you can even ride him bareback.You will learn from this horse and you will have so much fun on him, even if you are not an advanced rider. He truly is a once in a lifetime kind of horse.
He is elastic in the trot, super soft in your hand with just a snaffle, and moves right off your leg. He has the best canter and great extended and collected gaits that i have ridden in a long while!!! Comes with a pre purchase exam and full set of x rays which i had done when i purchased him in 2019, available for review with your vet. ... Olie is quite simply, the BEST!!!
Olie is available for you to see and try at our San Francisco Bay area stable! Call Janna for more info: 415-272-2112 or email [email protected]
He is a GOOD one---janna doesnt really WANT to sell this one, as she would like to compete him herself.....to an approved home only, that will give this boy the love and attention he deseves!
