Bas - SOLD
This is one gentle giant, affectionately known as sweet "baby huey."
We sold this imported friesian gelding in 2007, and Bas's owner only decided to sell Bas back to us because she is working 50+ hours a week and in the process of finishing building a house. She doesn't want this gentle giant just sitting in pasture because she doesn't have time for him..... Her loss is your gain on a really sweet, kid friendly, husband safe 8 yr old gelding.
Bas is an absolute sweetheart, and his owner rode him on very difficult trails (a lot!!). Bas has also been in professional dressage training since the end of January. He is going very well and is in fantastic shape. Bas looks like something out of a movie when ridden--he is QUITE IMPRESSIVE.
We are mostly concerned that this loving boy go to a good home with someone that has time for him and will give him the attention he deserves. He is doing very well in dressage, and could easily be a solid mid-level contender, but he also loves the trails so much, he would be ideal for someone to use him in that capacity as well.
If you are looking for an exceptionally sweet, kind, giving horse and you promise to provide a good loving home, Bas may just be your new best friend. Bas would like to go to someone who will dote on him. The barn manager at his current stable teases about Bas being the "beauty shop king." He just loves to be groomed and will actually fall asleep. He will also stand without being tied for a shampoo.
Bas is from the strong stam 15, mare line :stb x stb x ster x fb, continued with x fb x stb x fb x ster x stb x model x stam mare Juliana. He is sired by sport sire Fetse 349 x Tjimme 275 x Tsjalling 235 x Keimpe 261.
Height: Those of you looking for TALL, here he is! 17 hands/1.73m.
We love Bas's kind personality ( he is a people pleaser), has a good work ethic, loves trail rides, has a solid dressage foundation, has three really good gaits, is nice and quiet, responsive, and on the bit; in short, Bas is a great all-around leisure/pleasure/trail/lower-level dressage horse! He was used for driving and at a kids dressage camp in the Netherlands, before being imported, thus he is
double trained to both ride AND drive.
