Horse Description

Height: 16.1 hands

Johan is a wonderful, kind, giving family horse that is just as at home out on the trail, on a busy road, or in the woods, as he is in the competitive dressage arena. Check out the videoclips of him in LOUD traffic on the streets in the Netherlands!!!

Johan is the kindest, sweetest, most willing partner you can imagine. His trainer says she thinks he was "born saddle broke!"

Johan is a TRAILMASTER, he spooks at nothing, and will take you ANYWHERE, in high fashion. Want a NON spooky horse??? Here he is, even at his young age, Johan is pretty darn bombproof.

His movement and conformation are ideal. Johan is ready to go to his new forever home, as long as you promise to give him MUCH love! He has 3 wonderful gaits, and dressage riders-you will like how comfortable Johan is to sit. We like Johan's uphill conformation, his jet black shiny coat, and his WONDERFUL disposition. Johan has no vices whatsoever, and would be an ideal choice for a novice, timid, or inexperienced rider, or child, or amateur adult, due to his willingness to please. He will also make the competitive dressage rider happy, as he goes in a very nice frame, and really tracks up well, with space and tact, and perfect rhythm to his gaits. Johan was imported in 2007 for one of our customers in Virginia Beach. He is an exceptional individual.

He is ready for the show ring at training level. In fact, he was shown Training Level twice this season, BOTH TIMES coming out on top and winning First Places!!!

He is schooling 1st level, and is beginning second level work.

Johan is light, forward, and comfortable to ride. He is the perfect willing companion, an intelligent partner, easy to train, safe, and an absolute joy to ride.

Professionally trained, Johan is the kind of friesian that is light, sensitive, he has the talent and temperament to do it all.

Johan is a joy to ride and train.

Johan’s owner told us she sadly needed to sell her sweet boy, due to health reasons, and we jumped at the opportunity to buy this amazing partner back! We have promised Johan a very good home, and his previous owner would very much like to keep in touch with whoever is lucky enough to buy Johan..

And this is a very reasonably priced friesian gelding, making him an excellent first horse for some lucky home. Don’t miss this bold, beautiful, honest Friesian gelding!

Johan JUST ARRIVED AT OUR SONOMA STABLE!!! Would you like to come take him for a spin???
