Friesian Sire


Oege Preferent 267
Friesian Dam's Sire


Horse Description

Height: 16.2 hands

We are very excited to be able to offer this SPECIAL STER 5 yr old gelding, trained by our friend, Eline, who we have previously gotten some AMAZING dressage horses from!!!  

This boy has been started in dressage slowly, and methodically, really learning the basics, and then moving up, and now competing at  M level, which is 2nd level, with 4 winning points, AND this boy has WON in 2nd level dresage, the last three times out!!! His combination # is 816655M.

Sil is a lot of fun to be around. He’s a very open and honest horse. He is never rude in your hands or hard to handle. He has never taken a wrong step,  we have never seen him buck under saddle or exhibit naughty behavior....... what we like the BEST about Sil-----he has an enormous will to please. He really is a GREAT STER gelding!!

And even the Dutch Judges confirmed---this boy ranks in the tippy top 10% for conformation and movement, and made it to 2nd round at the viewing for stallion approval selection in 2015, hence earning the highly coveted STER predicate! Sil is a SPECIAL Thorben son, measuring 167 cm (just under 16.2 hands). Sil was bred by Margriet Griffioen, who also bred the approved stallion Tymon 503.


What a friendly, easy to ride ster gelding, with 3rd party verification that he IS the level we say he is, by scoring ABOVE 60% consistently, in 2nd level competition. AND he is double trained to ride AND drive! This is a gorgeous, in your pocket type, ster gelding, that is ALWAYS cheerful and friendly.


And what a GREAT trail horse----going in traffic, or in the woods by himself?? NO PROBLEM!  Sil is your man.


The previous owners' 4 yr old daughter would walk Sil on the lead, and sit on his back---what a gentle giant!!!



Comes with a recent thorough pre purchase exam, and xrays  available for review with your vet.

Dont miss the amazing, talented, FRIENDLY ster gelding, with winning points in M Level/2nd level!
