1st Premie STER Gelding

16.3 hands!!!  4 Times Champion of the Netherlands!!!

Proven Driving Champion in Europe and  PHENOMENAL HORSE UNDER SADDLE IN THE U.S. Competition? WATCH THIS BOY WIPE ‘EM OUT.

Marko is a one of a kind 1st premie STER GRAND CHAMPION. This Nykle x Jochem star gelding stands 16.3 hands tall, and is a proven winner. Marko is a 13 year old friesian that not only earned the coveted 1st premie designation as a foal, but ALSO as a 5 yr old gelding!!! TWICE 1st premie.

Born 5/10/96, with outstanding papers--- Marko’s motherline is impeccable: STER-STER+PREF-MODEL-PREFERENT

He has lots of show experience in harness. Marko has 4 National Championship titles to his name and he became reserve national champion in the lady’s class in 2005. This charismatic boy is very well trained and driven in harness and is also a good under saddle! Marko is a real show horse. When he starts working, he will put his neck right up and looks out at the world, as if to say “I am HERE,LOOK AT ME!”. His trot has incredibly high natural knee action and Marko has lots of “hang time”, as we call it. Under saddle,  Marko has set the saddleseat world on fire, AND he is a phenomenal dressage sporthorse---he has what it takes!!
