Conan - SOLD
2008 GRAND CHAMPION GELDING at NAPA KEURING!!!!!!!!!!!
Conan is just about as close to PERFECT as we can imagine, if building the IDEAL friesian....
BSF is proud to offer a BEAUTIFUL 1st premie Gelding sired by the great Approved stallion, Tsjerk, known for his SPECTACULAR movement (which he passes on to his offspring). He is just over 16 hands and has quite a PRESENCE. Besides being just plain gorgeous to look at, he also is very easy-going and has a great mind.
Check out these photos and videos of a mere 10 year old girl riding him outside! Whether in the indoor arena or outside on a long hack, he loves it all -and this guy is EASY to ride. What a totally sweet horse. Conan has quite a lot of trail experience, as well, and is accustomed to dogs and traffic. He is not only good under saddle, but he also DRIVES, and has been shown at small driving competitions in the Netherlands for the last year. He is also trained to drive in a pair !
AND he has an exceptional pedigree with a full motherline: STER-STER-STER-STER+PREF
Conan, registered as "Jalke", is one of the nicest Friesians we have, the kind of horse dreams are made of .... he is smooth as silk to ride. This is one nice dressage horse, with 3 solid good gaits. He is VERY people oriented, friendly and easy going. Conan has a solid dressage foundation--and is trained to drive both as a single and in pairs. Conan does well indoors and out. He is very forgiving, even for the unsure or timid rider. And he has excellent ground manners. With his classic Friesian presence and personality, Conan will steal your heart. He has a gorgeous build and is well proportioned. Here is am EXCEPTIONAL 1st premie Tsjerk son. LONG, LONG hair, loads of feathers, a kind gentle eye, and wonderful temperament make Conan an outstanding horse for both novices AND competitive riders. He has fantastic elasticity to his gaits, and is able to collect AND extend, a feat not easily accomplished by Friesians. If you would like to spend the next 25 years with a horse, why not make it a special one, like Conan?!
Conan has a thorough pre-purchase exam and clean x-rays on cd rom, his x-rays are all category "1" (the very BEST they can be!), and he is ready for his new forever home. You won't find a sweeter, nice and easy gelding anywhere.
**His price will increase as he accumulates show ring wins and experience******
Reserve Walk and Trot Open Grand Champion and Reserve Open Champion at the Santa Barbara Grand National Horse Show, with Julia Goldman!
Update...Sept 28, 2008......
- Conan was the Champion Gelding at the Napa keuring!!!!!! The judges had three geldings in the ring and then called the owners of two, Conan and another one owned by...well.... a competitor.
....then they called out the winners, and sure enough...Conan not ony received the coveted STER, he walked away with the Grand Championship ribbon!!!
He is quite simply, the BEST.
