This horse can take you far! Grand prix potential!
Colt is a big beautiful 5 year old Holsteiner gelding. Bred and born at one of Germany's top Holsteiner breeding facilities. From day one, he was given every opportunity to succeed with no unpleasent experiences which in turn resulted in an even tempered, loving horse that steals the heart of everyone that meets him. Just like most offsprings of the famous Contender, he displays all the desirable traits you'd want to see in a show horse, weather it be jumping, dressage or eventing.... (read more) He has picked up the best traits from all aspects of his amazing bloodlines. Talent, looks, temperament, good head, big heart... This horse has it all!!!
Aside from him being absolutely stunning, he is also a real professional. Colt is very smart and unbelievably quick learner and on top of that also always very eager to please. Such a pleasure to ride and train. He is currently in professional training with one of Serbia's the most successful trainers and riders and is excelling every day. Colt has also been hacked and ridden by a 11 year old girl and performed just as great as if ridden by a professional. Everyone that rides him instantly falls in love with him. His temperament and the will to please allow him to be a joy to ride by just about anyone amateur or pro. He is absolutely fearless and never bucks, rears or kicks which makes him a very mellow and comfortable ride while hacking or on trails. However when it is time to do real work, he becomes a total professional with the perfect amount of energy and spunk for the big jumps.
He is currently competing up to 120cm in the jumper ring and has also done multiple dressage clinics with a 4* FEI Dressage trainer and the selector of Hungary's national team. Next year he will be moving up to 125-135cm. He is very careful and jumps with a lot of scope. Free jumped 160cm like it was nothing and then immediately after proceeded to graze on some grass he found. That's just the type of horse he is. Nothing fazes him. Colt is definitely Grand Prix potential!
Colt has never refused a jump and will literally jump anything you point him to. Weather it's a water jump, or a scary looking fence, it doesn't make any difference to him. HE WILL JUMP ANYTHING. Even when put in a bad positions where most horses would refuse a jump, he finds a way to solve the problem on his own and jump it anyways which is what would also make him a great horse for an amateur or even a 3 day eventer. As for dressage, he has displayed amazing talent and ability in this discipline as well so you could really go either way with him.
His good looks and great form would definitely be a huge attribute in both Hunters and Equitation.
He is great in the stall and is not prone to injuries. Loves absolutely all animals, but he especially loves his humans. Truly a barn favourite! He would be the happiest horse in the world if someone could pet and kiss him 24/7! :)
Colt would be an amazing addition to any family, weather it be a professional looking for a horse to take them far or an amateur looking for a fun and easy ride.
Stands for the farrier, bathes, clips and hauls with no issues whatsoever. Colt has always been very sound and has no health issues. He has passed the necessary blood tests needed to import him to USA.
