A striking colt with the desired characteristics of Hanoverians. He is most correct in his legs. His disposition is of a "wants to please" and was imprinted at birth. He has been lunged and started ground driven. He is easy to trim both feet and hair. Ties, loads and hauls well. Shows remarkable intelligence. He scored 8 for movement during the inspection.
Both parents are 16.3 hands. Currently he has a 8 1/2" bone to support his ample body. His sire is Freestyle, a Hanoverian imported from Germany. His sire line includes the great sires Werther (Stallion of the Year 1997), Graphit (sire of dressage star Grundstein) and Gotthard (known for producing jumpers). Thus his blood produces both dressage and jumpers. His sire is currently competing at advance dressage levels on the east coast.
His dam is a TB - known for their boldness on the track. Her pedigree contains many stake and allowance horses. Injured in a trailer as a 2 yo, his dam did not race. She is noted for her kind and cooperative disposition as well as her way of going.
This colt has the mind and body to do either jumping or dressage. Because of his breeding he may do eventing, too.
