Otte 375
Friesian Sire


Jochem 259

Horse Description

Height: 16.0 hands
Tombo is our STER Gelding with a tremendous future. He is by the Approved stallion Otte and out of a Jochum dam, and sports a FULL PEDIGREE which means he has unbroken ster predicates in his motherline. You can't get much better than this: Ster+Pref-Ster+Pref-Model+ Pref!!!!! Tombo-STER shares the same mother as the Approved stallion, Rindert 406, so motherlines don't get much better than that!
Tombo completed the test in Drachton for his sire, Otte, and showed his true colors to the Dutch Judges. He was the HIGHEST scoring horse from the test, and received an astonishing 83.3 points, and was crowned a STER Stallion, for his amazing conformation and movement. This is 3rd party verification that this boy really has the GOODS, and he uses them well. Tombo rec'd an 8.2 for "show test" and an outstanding 7.9 for his incredible work ethic.
We love Tombo's enormous chest, long mane, and very thick tail. His coat is a shiny jet black and Tombo has SHOW HORSE written all over him. He is L level dressage. This 4 yr old STER gelding has already accomplished much in his life. He has talent for carriage, saddleseat or dressage. He has much experience being ridden outside, out in the wild blue wonder AND in noisy city traffic, and his trainer calls Tombo "bombproof".
Tombo STER is such a sweet, kind, giving horse, he WANTS to please his rider. Tombo is an elegant talented STER gelding that is a beautiful mover with nice extended strides; he moves very freely through the shoulder, and has a lovely 3 beat canter. Tombo is super friendly, he loves people and has no vices whatsoever. He gets along well with other horses, and has an excellent classical dressage foundation. Tombo is a versatile horse... he is ideal for exhibitions, parades, costume classes, showing, or just pleasure riding or hacking out on the trail. AND this boy is suitable for a confident beginner, and yet has talent enough for a professional. Tombo is a STER gelding that is light, NOT lazy, and safe, sane, sound....a JOY to ride or drive. Tombo has a recent complete pre-purchase exam and clean x-rays, and is at our Sonoma Wine country, for you to come and ride or drive, anytime!
