Felle 422
Friesian Sire


Marten 377
Friesian Dam's Sire


Horse Description

Height: 16.0 hands

Giocomo is a drop dead GORGEOUS deep black, long haired gelding with very good conformation AND the oh so desirable unflappable character, and L Level Dressage (First Level). We love his easy going disposition---nothing bothers this guy, not even HUGE machinery going by on the highway! He is perfect for novice or nervous riders, because he is very forgiving, and VERY sweet for children----check out Gio being ridden bareback WHILE being driven, and then again being ridden with a halter and lead rope, and then  bareback with NOTHING but his small rider on his back!

B-DAY 5/7/11

Gio is accustomed to dogs, children and traffic. He is willing to please but also willing to work and he is ready to go to a dressage show for you---enter him in First Level and watch him bring home the blues for YOU:)

BOY DOES HE HAVE A TON OF EXPERIENCE doing all kinds of different things, and in many many different settings in Holland, which further PROVES his athletic abilities, AND we just had him thoroughly vetted and xrayed. Giocomo is one of the safest friesian geldings on the market today.   Even with a rider that doesn't know how to post, bumping in the saddle, Giocomo remains very cool in his head, and never takes a wrong step! He would be an IDEAL husband horse! EXCELLENT pedigree, FELLE X MARTEN.

Gio has excellent, supple and forward going movement, an easy trot to sit---even bareback, and a wonderful rocking horse canter.  And because he is so easy to sit--he would also make a nice western horse, AND he enjoys hacking out on the trail. He has excellent lateral work: shoulders end, haunches in, leg yields.  Also excellent are his rein back and 10 meter circles. Just in time for Christmas, here is the "everything" friesian horse! Talk about "dead-broke", and easy to ride, ---not sensitive, and MORE appropriate for a beginner rider than most young friesans on the market today.

This boy is not lazy, he moves off your leg nicely, and he is nicely laid back for the rider that has previously had a bad experience, and needs to regain their trust riding again. He is the ideal horse for an amateur or junior, or person looking for a NON spooky Friesian sporthorse to enjoy, and he comes with a recent thorough pre-purchase exam and xrays available for review with your vet. Measuring 164 cm (16 hands), Gio is compact and comfortable in his gaits, and he is sensitive enough to your leg, to make an easy amateur horse. The bonus is…..Gio has an excellent character, and will make a tremendous Friend for life!

This one wont last---- ideal age coming 7, LONG hair, jet black coat, AND a temperament second to none!

Gio JUST ARRIVED in Calif----- in time to be under someone's tree for Xmas!:)

He is available at Baywood Canyon Eq Ctr at 59 Baywood Canyon Rd in Fairfax, for you to see and try!
