Ynte - SOLD
Ynte is a very flashy Friesian gelding that has an oustanding show record, competing at M level in Europe. Ynte has earned points competing in 2nd level dressage, which is proof in the puddding that he is an exceptional dressage schoolmaster for a beginning dressage rider.

Ynte is one of those RARE friesians that is PROVEN in his dressage ability. He has points in M level dressage, comparable to our 2nd level, which means he is consistently scoring above 65% in 2nd level competition! Anyone can SAY they have a 2nd level horse, Ynte has PROVEN he is competitive at 2nd level!!!!!!!!!! He is a delight to be around and is very brave and eager to learn and please his rider. He will excel in any discipline but especially in dressage and he loves going out on the trail.
Ynte has no vices, is 100% sound, and is up-to-date on his shots, shoeing and worming. Ynte is really a fancy Friesian that can truly be termed "bombproof", with the RARE show record, competing at M level in Europe.
Ynte has incredible cadence and elasticity, and the well known easy going temperament that has made the Friesian the IDEAL horse for the amateur rider. His ground skills are exceptional--loading, clipping, vetting, bathing etc., Ynte is a perfect gentleman. You will love his 3 good gaits. He has a great walk, a big smooth trot, and a nice forward, rocking canter. He picks up his leads well, wonderful transitions from a walk or a halt, into the canter, as well as from a trot [you don't have to run this guy into the canter!] . Ynte has even been to a "Horse Camp" and was great at that!
Ynte is PROOF that fairytales DO COME TRUE, and he is currently at our Sonoma Wine Country Stable.
