Proven dressage show record: Z level[3rd level]
Impeccable pedigree, trained in upper level dressage ---and what an incredible partner for parades or trail rides, Ravel is a rare gem! Here is a 7 year old stallion, 16.1 hands,with LONG fairytale looking hair, gorgeous build, talent for dressage that has 3rd party verification! And such a sweet, kind, giving horse, Ravel WANTS to please his rider. He is excellent on the trail (read: NOT spooky!). Ravel is SO HONEST. He moves right off your leg, with smooth transitions, great walk to canter, and does wonderful lateral work. It is difficult NOT to smile when on the back of this boy. He is an elegant, extremely LONG haired, beautiful mover with nice extended strides; he has that lofty knee action that friesians are so well known for, and a lovely balanced 3 beat canter.
Ravel is super friendly, he loves people and has no vices whatsoever. Ravel is a versatile horse, not only does he have points in z level dressage, but he is just as comfortable being a pleasure/trail companion. Ideal for exhibitions-- because of his fairytale looks, parades, costume classes, showing, or just pleasure riding or hacking out on the trail. He has great stall manners, is easy to clip, bath, stands for the farrier, and trailers nicely. He is suitable for a confident beginner, and yet has talent enough for a professional. He has a recent complete pre-purchase exam, x rays, and is ready for his new forever home.
Price does NOT include import and quarantine costs to NY, Fla, Los Angeles, Canada, or Mexico. Cost to fly Ravel into NY ( as a gelding) is $6000 (and and additional 2500-5k as a stallion).
THIS WAS MY FAVORITE FAVORITE HORSE ON MY RECENT TRIP TO THE NETHERLANDS.... THIS BOY HAS IT ALL. HAIR, IDEAL TEMPERAMENT, UPPER LEVEL TRAINING, SAFE IN EVERY SETTING, 100% HEALTHY AND SOUND, NOTHING ELSE I SAW COMPARES, this one is special, and worth every penny.
Let us know right away if you would like him imported as a gelding or a stallion ( keeping in mind, import as a stallion is a 30 day longer quarantine in the US and a little more expensive....)
