Horse Description

Ivan is a 5 year old gelding who has been extensively shown in dressage competitions in Holland. He has worked up through the levels and is now showing M level (2nd level), and has 9 points in M1 dressage!!!!
Not only does Ivan know his lateral work, he has impeccable walk to canter transitions, shoulder in, haunches in, travers, and half pass. His sire, Lloke, passed on his long flowing hair and excellent work ethic! He has beautiful sporthorse conformation and is easy going enough for those just wanting to learn dressage.
Ivan is truly a schoolmaster that you can learn to ride on.
Ivan is a RARE M dressage friesian with points. He won a lot .........starting in B dressage with an amateur rider, and working his way up the levels, winning lots of competitions along the way. Ivan has wonderful conformation, an excellent example of the Friesian horse!! He has a wonderful temperment, is easy to handle, and very eager to please. He is turned out with other horses---no problem, he gets along with EVERYONE. He has three beautiful, strong and free flowing gaits and his regal demeanor draws attention in crowds.
We love his beautiful head and nice BIG tail. Looking for BIG....Ivan stands 170 cm!!! Great things come in big packages--check out his expression and drop dead gorgeous looks!!!!! Ivan's ability in dressage is indisputable. He currently has 9 winning points in M (2nd level), which means he HAS to be scoring above 60%, as he has winning points which are proof of his upper level dressage capabilities.
If you are looking for a PROVEN 2nd level dressage competitor, and a partner with an excellent charachter and temperament, Ivan is for you. His father is Lloke, and has given him expressive gaits and a desire to please.

This beautiful big boy is elastic, intelligent, FORWARD, hard working, and extremely athletic. He can go all the way up the levels, and is a RARE FIND---there are very few M level dressage horses available in the US, and Ivan is ready for M2 dressage!!!
