Beart 411
Friesian Sire


Gerlof 294
Friesian Dam's Sire


Horse Description

Height: 16.2 hands

Amazing gaits for dressage and super temperament and disposition.  Here is a super fancy mover who knows how to impress-- we LOVE his type, movement and work ethic. This impressive and elegant friesian is just a dream! Here is an FEI FRIESIAN with international quality gaits. He is extremely willing, forward thinking, smooth gaits and has clean X-rays available for review with your vet.

This is a beautiful 16.2 hand tall Beart SPORT Pref son, out of a Gerlof STER mare, born 6/26/11 imported from the Netherlands. This boy is a blast to ride. Forward thinking with a good motor and nice in the bridle. Registered as "Jibbe",  we call him "Gio"-- he  has successfully competed through 3rd level (Z level) ,and just acquired the highly coveted SPORT predicate at only 6 years of age!!!! 

This boy is super elastic and has three rhythmic and clear gaits. He is like a couch to sit on! Gio thrives for attention and absolutely loves being around people. He enjoys his grooming time and is extremely well behaved. Naturally he stands for the farrier, clips, loads and baths like a pro!

Look at the youtube clips above.... this boy has electrifying movement, which is no surprise given his pedigree of champion performance horses. His sire, BEART Sport and Pref, has beat his daddy, JASPER SPORT PREF multiple times at the Stallion Show, to be crowned World Grand Champion, and he is known for passing on great athleticism and his GERLOF lineage from his dam, is known for their great upper level capabilities! Giovanni displays the pure balance and agility an FEI horse is known for, and his natural ability for the collected work is evident. He also has excellent ability for the extended movements as well with powerful impulsion from the hindquarters and a free shoulder allowing for complete extension of the forelegs. He has the aptitude to be a premier riding and show horse. And proof is in the pudding, and 3rd party verification....he has scored above 65% in Z level (3rd level), with more than 5 winning points, thus achieving the highly coveted SPORT predicate. Z level in Europe is comparable to our 3rd level, without the changes.

If you want the BEST, look no further. Not cheap, but worth EVERY PENNY. This is a special horse.... i might have to keep this one, if not sold quickly.....
