Sir Ivan is a fun horse for an intermediate rider that can go as far as you want! He has shown through 1st level in dressage, and has been jumped through 3'3", and free-jumped to 3'9". Ivan is the bravest horse ever on cross country! Doesn't blink an eye at ditches, banks, and water. Ivan is an eager beaver, always willing to try anyting new and ready to go! He has a very correct, square trot, a lovely canter, and the best walk with tons of overstep. He has a substantial build for his height, so can take a big or tall rider with ease, but is still short enough that you don't need a step ladder to get on! With his shiny black coat, stocky build, and white trimming, Sir Ivan could be a body double for the current World Champion dressage horse Moorland's Totilas! He is sweet and inquisitive, easy to get along with, loads, clips, bathes, hauls, stands tied, and gets along well with other horses. He has his USDF lifetime and USEA numbers, and is current on shots, coggins, farrier, etc. Come try him, you won't be disappointed in this handsome guy!
***Ivan finished 4th out of 15 starters in the Jr BN Division at his first sanctioned Horse Trial, Maydaze at the KY Horse Park, May 2012. Ivan has most recently been showing dressage with scores in the mid-60's and jumping Beginner Novice at Horse Trials and combined tests.
