FOR SALE!!! Auke - 16.2h, 5yr old, Ster Friesian Gelding (Thorben 466 X Tjalf 443)
Auke arrived from the Netherlands in February 2021. He is by Thorben 466 out of a ster mare named Gerbina fan de Klaster (Tjalf 443), both lines containing numerous Sport and Preferent predicates! He became ster at the stallion keuring and even took part in the central stallion inspection in 2019. Auke was one of the 20 best stallions that year!
Auke has been started in dressage, demonstrates three correct gaits, and shows great sport potential.... (read more) His canter does need a little more work bringing along and getting balanced but he already has a very natural rhythm to it.
Auke also shows very strong promise as a saddleseat horse. He works well in a proud, correct head set and very expressive movement in his gaits, both front and hind end. The potential and action is there to make this horse into a very strong competitor in the show ring in the saddleseat discipline.
Auke is a really great minded horse, very calm, friendly, and amateur proof. He loves to go outdoor hacking with a group or alone. He is very curious by nature so if he comes upon something he is unsure of, give him a minute to inspect it and then he moves on like a pro. He is great on the ground, will stand all day to be bathed or braided and is good for vet, farrier, clippers, etc. He has a gorgeous, long, flowing mane, a beautiful, thick tail and a very proud stance to him.
Auke has been started in harness and driving and while green is showing much promise! He will drive single, in pair, or has led a unicorn hitch, and is a true lead horse. He likes to drive straight in the carriage and maintains the wow factor trotting around the arena.
Auke competed at the NEFHC June show and was very successful in both in hand classes and under saddle. He shows off very well in the show ring and is very well behaved to handle in the show atmosphere. He would make a lovely amateur show horse. The sky's the limit with this sweet boy!
