He tracks very well underneath himself, and he is just an amazing horse to work with. York is always happy and always wants to do 100% his best for you! He is a half brother to our Hldebrand, just sold to Robert in Fla, and he was my absolute favorite horses to ride, on a February buying trip to the Netherlands.
