Horse Description

Height: 16.0 hands

Jet Black and Handsome, Benno is an extraordinary and versatile Friesian! Benno, a 5 yr old gelding, is a cross between a baroque and sporthorse build. He has a beautifully arched neck, and could be used for a variety of disciplines. Just look at the pictures of him frolicking in water that is 4 feet deep!!
Benno has a beautiful small head and he is also EXCELLENT at pleasure driving, and has experience driving as a single, pair, and in a 4 in hand.
Benno has the BEST mix you could imagine in a pedigree.... he is the son of Anton, a stallion that reportedly sold for a record 2 million EUROS last year and ranked number three in the world on offspring, and his dam's sire is the incomparable Leffert. Anton X Leffert, what a combo!!! And Benno has what they call a FULL PEDIGREE. His motherline has unbroken ster predicates throughout: STER-STER+PREF-MODEL-STER.
Benno has deep trusting eyes that look into yours for affection. He has a great mind and his easy going disposition suits all levels of riders. He has been thoroughly enjoyed by his Dutch family, and has the potential to go far in dressage, saddleseat, as a trail companion, or as a ride and drive horse. Benno is very easy to ride by ALL levels of riders, and he is equally pleasant to work with on the ground. And look at his fairytale looks, Benno has the long hair and fairytale appearance we are always looking for. Safe, sane, sound, with a recent complete pre-purchase, and clean x-ray report from the stallion show. And suitable for novices, this is one TRAILMASTER. Benno has numerous hours logged in out on trails in the countryside. Benno is a very willing partner with a solid dressage foundation. Don't miss this sweet and talented boy!
