Friesian Dam's Sire

Horse Description

Height: 16.1 hands

Mel, short for his registered name "Melchoir", is very well ridden under saddle and experienced pulling a carriage in single, pairs and in 4 in hands. We LOVE his rocking horse easy canter!

...BIG, BRAVE, HANDSOME, Mel wowed us with his incredible dressage movement! AND we rode AND drove Mel while we were in Holland.... he has substantial training already, both under saddle and being driven! He even has considerable experience out on the trail and in traffic. We think this boy has a great future ahead of him. It is obvious that he enjoys dressage, and he is GOOD at it. He has a very sweet character and is ALWAYS willing to work. He is ready to take someone to the TOP in dressage, or make you VERY happy as a wonderful pleasure horse. He really enjoys relaxing trail rides, as we took him on one, and long grooming sessions. He is very comfortable to sit, and has forward and smooth gaits. Mel has a recent vet report and will arrive in L..A. SOON. This jet-black horse is kind, giving, non-spooky, and he WANTS to please. 

Mel has a FANTASTIC canter, and shows DEFINITE potential for upper level dressage. You will enjoy his fabulous disposition, and he can be ridden by all levels of riders, and would also make a nice western horse!

Full pedigree:

B-DAY 6/29/12


1.37% low inbreeding

He would do well as a competitive dressage horse, but also loves to go on trail rides/hacks. We like his wonderful training attitude, as he is not a lazy friesian, yet not a spooky one either. He is eager to please, and has a quiet and easy attitude. He is very easy to handle, and would also be suitable for beginning riders. Mel is ready for his new forever home, and will make some lucky rider VERY happy.

We are VERY proud to offer this reasonably priced, JET BLACK, long haired SWEET boy....
