Bennie vande Hazenhut ST - SOLD
BSF is proud to offer Bennie, a wonderful 8 yr old STER gelding currently competing at 3rd level.
Bennie has been with the same owner for the last 4 years, and is only being sold because his rider is off to college. She started taking lessons on him and it was immediately quite evident how talented Bennie is. They then started riding at competitions, and currently Bennie is at Z1 level with 2 winning points! In fact, at their last competition, Bennie WON! So he is definitely able to compete against warm bloods, and come out on TOP:)
Their last competition in Europe was on Jun 15th (see photos above!!) , and then Bennie headed to America to seek a new riding partner, in a new country.
His combination number is 375351BL. He has started flying changes, and is doing very well.
Besides whipping the warmbloods at competitions, Bennie also enjoys long rides outside, in the woods, on the beach and everywhere!! He is also very familiar with traffic, nothing bothers this guy.
This son of Anne out of a ster mare sired by World Champion Melle, has an exceptional pedigree with a motherline that sports unbroken STER predicates:
AND Bennie's conformation and movement is rated in the top 10% of all Friesians, this STER gelding is special.
This is one FEI level dressage horse that is elastic, elevated, and feels awesome to the rider! At a mere 8 yr of age, Bennie is ALREADY 3rd level, the world is this boy's oyster!! He is not finished climbing the levels, he is still young!
We love this STER Gelding's super disposition, his SUPER elasticity under saddle, and his raw talent. He is not STAR "quality".... He IS STER!!!~
Bennie is a beautiful and kind Friesian gelding with the "exclusive" STER rating. He has a very athletic build and 3 very good gaits. He is forward and has that kind temperament the Friesian horse is known for. He is competing and consistently scoring ABOVE 65% in 3rd level competitions against warm blood horses and he is training 4th level.
This boy knows travers, renvers, rein back, counter canter, walk-canter departs, turn on the haunches, has spectacular collected gaits AND extended gaits, a VERY easy to sit trot, does shoulder in, half pass, and is really coming along quickly with flying changes.
He is the kind of horse that is easy, fun and rewarding to work with!
