Henri - SOLD
Henri is a special proven LONG haired dressage horse sired by Nanning and out of a STER mare by Remmelt. , with winning points in L2 dressage [1st-2nd level] and a winning show record here in the U.S.!!
He isn't a lazy friesian, but just right. Henri is perfect for anybody. He is very sweet and easy going, and just the perfect size and build. And he is just gorgeous!! With beautiful hair...most horses only DREAM of.
He has a very good canter and spectacular trot. Henri has the rare ability to really collect AND extend his gaits. Look at his amazing extended trot!
Henri is very nice to ride, even for an amateur or novice, because he is so kind, friendly and VERY sweet. This gelding is an angel and works hard. He will just go slower in his movement if he has a nervous rider aboard, which is what we like to see in a horse when ridden by a less experienced rider. That is his way. He is VERY gentle and kind.And this boy is tall, 165 cm. This imported 6 yr old gelding has what they call a "full pedigree" with unbroken STER predicates in his motherline: STER-STER-STER-MODEL+PREF.
Henri’s trot is buoyant with fluid extensions. His walk over-tracks extremely well. His canter is easily collected with ample airtime. He is confirmed in all lateral work, trot and canter. He has accumulated an excellent show record competing in L Level dressage in Europe, and Henri has shown quite successfully in the US.
Henri has shown at a recognized USDF Dressage show at Intro and Training 4. He won highpoint and received 63% his first show.
Henri was ridden by Grant Schneiderman, a former USET Three-Day Event team member, who has 37 years of experience training and competing through the FEI levels in North America and Europe, in recent dressage clinics. Henri is very talented and gentle, yet with a kick, and he is very very smart and likes new assignments in training. Grant was working on flying lead changes with him:)
Henri has a noble temperament with no complications. He is sound, with a recent clean pre-purchase and clean x-rays, and he loads and transports easily.....which he has done frequently for dressage competitions. He is suitable for beginner and intermediate riders and talented enough for professionals. Henry has 3 quality and expressive gaits and an eye-catching presence. He is very athletic, and has a WOW appearance that will take your breath away. He is very easy to the leg and a blast to ride. Tons of FUN with a FRIESIAN Dreamboat!! How many Friesians do you know that have points competing at L Level dressage and are TALL, jet black in color, with perfect conformation, and LONG LONG hair?!???? Henri is truly ONE OF A KIND, and will not last!
Henri is Recorded for Life with the USEF
