Wendy and Janna are very proud to offer Wellesley, a super sweet 1st premie ster gelding.
He acquired the STER Predicate, which means he is the tippy top 5% of all horses as judged by the Dutch Judges for conformation and movement, achieving the highly coveted 1st premie STER status, AND that's not all, he now ALSO has the RARE SPORT predicate, only bestowed on horses that are consistently scoring ABOVE 60% in 3rd level dressage! He knows all the upper level exercises very well and is a quick learner---this is an FEI friesian horse---the sky is the limit for Wellesley.
Wellesley is one of the BEST dressage sporthorses available anywhere---this first premie ster gelding has a lot of power in his movement, especially in the trot; his canter is smooth and controlled, and super easy to collect. His walk is spacious and correct.
We are VERY excited to offer this STER and SPORT friesian gelding for sale---he is an excellent choice for a nervous rider, as well as for someone that aspires to move up quickly into even higher levels in the sport of dressage!
And Wellesley is VERY WELL trained for pulling your carriage AND appropriate for even the most novice of drivers!!
1st premie star gelding
and fantastic movement!!
His trot looks and feels like one of my most favorite upper level dressage show horses EVER, Ate!
Wellesley competed at the Friesian Championships in Z1 dressage ( 3rd level)...this is one EXPERIENCED boy with excellent 3rd party verification that he has the very BEST conformation and movement, ranking in the tippy top 5% of all friesian horses, AND he is one of the MOST TALENTED friesian sporthorses around---having already acquired the sport predicate for his high scores in upper level dressage. The sky is the limit for this 16.2 hand Andries son!
Something that we fell in love with is that Wellesley is a real schoolmaster. He is incredibly easy to ride! He gaits are smooth, great if you have lower back problems---check out the pic of him going bareback above with a very beginner rider! He is forward when you ask him to be, but is very quiet with a timid rider. Wellesley is also very brave. He loves to trail ride both in groups and alone.
Wellesley is a drive off the show room floor kind of horse with SO MUCH EXPERIENCE and a proven show record with many years ahead of him. This beautiful boy is a total schoolmaster and very easy to ride. AND there are no hidden charges with this stunning LONG haired 1st premie ster SPORT gelding---his price INCLUDES a thorough physical pre purchase vetcheck and xrays, available for review with your vet.
***In the photos above in the pair, Wellesley is on the driver's RIGHT---performing in front of record breaking crowds at the stallion show, in Jan 10, 2019!!
This is a rare opportunity to own one of Hollands VERY BEST at a very reasonable price. This one wont last!
