Bodega BSF - SOLD
We are always looking for extraordinary dressage horses, that are a bit older, experienced, and have a proven dressage record competing at 2nd level , or above. We searched high and low, and Barend went to Germany and found a RARE tall Anton son whose character and quality are just what we are looking for, as this horse is EASY for all levels of riders.Friesians aren't the most popular breed in upper level dressage clases....If you take a Friesian to a competition, everything has to be 'top'.
We like to sell horses that shock the judges. We hear comments running through the crowds – and the judges' boxes, at competitions with our horses....from "a horse like that doesn't belong in a dressage competition" to "well, they are lovely cart horses." The range of the prejudices is as narrow-minded as it is firmly planted into some people's heads. BUT this M level FRIESIAN gelding leaves mouths agape and spectators rethinking their preconceptions, wherever he appears at a competition. Not only does Bodega have the prestigious full papers, Ster - Ster -ter+ Preferent- Preferent, but he is out of a ster dam by the famous FPS Approved Breeding Stallion, Hearke Pref , and sired by Anton, who is known for his mane that almost touches the ground! These 2 FPS Approved Breeding Stallions represent some of the most highly desired sires in the Friesian Studbook. Not only is each sire known for his excellent movement and sport ability, but they also pass these positive traits on to their offspring! Bodega showed Dutch L level, which is equal to the US 1st level, placing very high even against Warmbloods, and quickly earned the necessary points to compete in Dutch M Level, which is equal to the US 2nd Level.
He is not only jet black (no white), he is stunning, beautiful, and charming!!! He certainly inherited poppa Anton's abundant HAIR, and he is also gentle, friendly and really intelligent! Everybody who rides Bodega falls head over heels in love with him.
He moves like he owns the place, and Bodega has a very balanced WONDERFUL perfect 3 beat canter that will make it very easy for him to learn the flying changes. And the best of all: he is really comfy to sit on, just like sitting on your favorite recliner!
We are very impressed with his lateral work. His canter transitions from the walk are like clockwork, he has EXCELLENT simple changes and counter canter. Barend thinks this is a horse that could very easily go Z level in just 1 month [3rd level].
He has 4 winning points in M [2nd level] competition. His combination number is : 368070AS.
This is an elegant Gelding with the 'WOW' factor, deep black color, fantastic mover with excellent suspension, LONG hair, and winning points in M level dressage, proving his ability.
He is appropriate for a novice or timid rider----please come to our sonoma stable and take this exceptionally talented and reasonably priced gelding for a spin!
