Gabriel - SOLD
Gabriel is a RARE FIND and one of the BEST we have ever seen, after searching everywhere for the very BEST horses, for 1 week in Holland in Jan, 2006.
Gabriel is a TALL Ster Stallion that was chosen as a provisionally Approved Stallion last year, and he completed the 70 day test in Drachton, just narrowly missing out on becoming an Approved Stallion. Even the Dutch Judges agreed---he is ONE OF THE BEST!
Gabriel has good energy and is not the slightest bit lazy. He epitomizes a FORWARD MOVING friesian. He has a great character AND is absolutely breath taking to look at, making people gasp when they first lay eyes on him, and look at the extension to his trot! We think he will be EXTREMELY competitive in dressage OR saddleseat competition, due to his perfect head set, and amazing movement...he looks like a world champion already, at age 4! Gabriel is also trained to drive. Gabriel has the uphill conformation and way of going that sets him apart from the competition. This STER stallion is FUN to ride and appropriate for a strong beginner. In Holland, Gabriel's owner's 4 yr old son could load him on and off their trailer--he is that easy to work with and handle! This boy is a fast learner, impressive, and he knows when to present himself. His pedigree is exceptional with unbroken STER predicates in his motherline, and he has a recent thorough pre-purchase and clean x-rays on file at Univ Utrecht, and good semen.
Gabriel is the kind of horse that won't last long, we might just have to show him ourselves..........
And let us know right away if you prefer he be flown to NY, otherwise he will be flown to Los Angeles on Feb 14.
This boy is not inexpensive, but WORTH it. Try him for Approval in the US, he narrowly missed becoming an Approved Stallion in Holland, and we think he has an excellent chance of making it, HERE:)
Please note, Gabriel's price was just reduced and reflects an excellent value if you buy him site unseen BEFORE he arrives at our San Fancisco Stable [at which point his price will go up significantly]. Buy him NOW!
