Marten BSF - SOLD
Marten is a drop dead GORGEOUS deep black, long haired gelding with very good conformation AND the oh so desirable proven dressage show record, with winning points in L2 dressage [2nd level].
We love his excellent character, as he is perfect for novice or nervous riders, because he is very forgiving, and VERY sweet for children. Marten is used to dogs, children and traffic. He is willing to please but also willing to work And the proof is in the pudding regarding his training and movement—he has consistently scored above 65% in his tests, mostly against warmbloods, and has points in L2 dressage in Holland to PROVE his athletic abilities. Marten has excellent, supple and forward going movement, an easy trot to sit, and a wonderful rocking horse canter. He is very well trained for dressage, ready for second level, AND Marten enjoys hacking out on the trail. His collected walk, trot and canter, and extended walk, trot and canter are superb. Also excellent are his rein back, all lateral work, travers, walk-canter departs, counter canter, and 10 meter circles.
Marten is the "everything" horse. He shows in dressage VERY successfully against other breeds, AND is "dead-broke", and easy to ride, ---not as sensitive as Jesse, and MORE appropriate for a beginner rider. This boy is not lazy, he moves off your leg nicely, and is breathtaking and elegant to watch. He is the ideal horse for an amateur or junior, or person looking for a NON spooky Friesian sporthorse to enjoy, and he comes with a recent thorough pre-purchase exam. Marten is compact and comfortable in his gaits, and he is sensitive enough to your leg, to make an easy amatuer horse.
The bonus is…..Marten has an excellent character, and will make a tremendous Friend for life! 1.62 cm tall [just under 16 hands] L2 dressage with winning points!!!
