JOPPE STER - SOLD
Here is a GREAT buy on a proven dressage STER gelding. Joppe is sired by the PREFERENT Feitse, and not only did he receive the coveted STER designation as a 3 yr old, he was a 1st premie foal, ranking him in the tippy top 5% of all horses, for conformation and movement.
Joppe received a 68% from Olympic judge Axel Steiner in Training level in the summer of 07!!!
He stands 16'3" and is forward, yet has a quiet mind.
This 1st premie Feitse STER gelding is a fancy mover. Easy off of your leg and has been in training for the majority of the last two years with a Grand Prix rider and USDF Gold Medalist.
If you are looking for a horse that is ready to go for this show season, here he is:)
Joppe is beautiful, with just loads of potential to take you up the levels, and we are very impressed with his big lofty floating gaits.
Easy to ride Joppe has proven himself in the dressage arena, check out his videoclips!
He is solid Training level, schooling 1st, 2nd, and has been trained slowly and methodically by a professional grand prix rider. We love his easy to sit trot, and WHAT A WONDERFUL ROCKING HORSE CANTER!!! Joppe easily stretches on a long rein, knows leg yields, and does perfect 20 meter circles.
But what we like best about this truly gentle giant, is that he has SUCH a nice temperament--he is IDEAL for taking on trails, heading up into the hills, and just plain pleasure riding. We ride Joppe bareback with a halter and lead rope, he is that easy.
This is truly a black labrador in horse form
Joppe has wonderful movement, is naturally forward, built uphill, very light on his feet and floats. He is very sweet, loves attention and has excellent manners. Here is a FHANA registered 1st premie Ster gelding at a great price. Joppe passed all his x-rays at the stallion testing in the Netherlands, and he just passed another full vet exam here. Joppe made it to the 3rd round at the stallion show, and his x-rays are on file at Univ Utrecht. There were already two other Feitse Pref sons chosen at the stallion show in Leawarden, otherwise we think Joppe would have made the 70 day test.
If you are looking for a reasonably priced, EASY to ride [and appropriate for a beginner] big, beautiful STER gelding, take a good look at this boy.
His pedigree is SUPERB. Mother is STER, Grandmother is STER, Great Grandmother is Stb, and Great Great Grandmother is STER.
The Feitse Pref X Lammert STER gelding is not to be passed up. What we love most about Joppe is his easy going temperament. Even if you haven't ridden in 20 years and are flopping around a bit in the saddle, Joppe will take care of you, and make you look GOOD, while you are learning to ride, or giving your muscles a refresher course.
Don't miss him, once he is gone, we won't be able to replace him for this price!
Joppe's birthday is 3/27/03.
