Palo - SOLD
We are always looking for extraordinary LONG haired horses, that are a bit older, experienced, and have proven themselves safe in a variety of settings. We searched high and low, and Barend found this RARE tall Ids son, whose character and quality are just what we are looking for, as this horse is EASY for all levels of riders.
Not only is Palo "easy on the eyes", but he has an outstanding pedigree, sired by Ids and out of a mare by the approved stallion, Doeke. These 2 FPS Approved Breeding Stallions represent some of the most highly desired sires in the Friesian Studbook. Not only is each sire known for his excellent movement and sport ability, but they also pass these positive traits on to their offspring!
He is not only jet black, Palo is stunning, beautiful, and charming!!! He certainly inherited poppa Id's abundant HAIR, and he is also gentle, friendly and really intelligent! Everybody who rides or drives Palo falls head over heels in love with him.
He moves like he owns the place, and Palo has a very balanced WONDERFUL perfect 3 beat canter. And the best of all: he is really comfy to sit on, just like sitting on your favorite recliner! We are very impressed with his willingness to work.
Palo is uncomplicated, cool, and easy to handle in all situations.
He has been used extensively on overnight horse camping trips. He would go 25 km cross country under saddle, and then camp with his rider, then be ridden 30km the next day.
He was most recently used in a riding school during the week, and driven by his owner on the weekends.
This is an elegant Gelding with the 'WOW' hair factor, deep black color, fantastic mover with excellent suspension, and CLEAN x-rays that were just taken on Feb 8th, and are available for review with your vet. Palo measures 167 cm, just under 16.2 hands.
He is appropriate for a novice or timid rider----please come to our sonoma stable and take this exceptionally talented and reasonably priced gelding for a spin!
