(STEDINGER - SANDRO HIT X MISS WILD)Congratulations and a warm welcome to Christie Allan! We are happy to have Vato back at TV!
Stilliazato is a 2006 16.3 hand German Oldenburg gelding sired by Stedinger, the unequivocal approval winner of the 2002 Oldenburg Stallion Days. He is a very fancy mover, very athletic, and a quick learner. He is walk/trot/cantering under saddle, and jumping 2'6" courses with a natural auto lead change. Goes on the bit, hacks out cross country, and has been to a few local horse shows, with a great attitude. "Vato" is easy to handle, has good barn manners, crossties, bathes, stands for the farrier, etc. An excellent and very fancy amateur dressage or hunter prospect!
Congratulations and a warm welcome to Brooke Sabady, of Honesdale, PA! We are thrilled to welcome back Pablo to TV!
Pablo is a 2002 17.0 hand Dutch Warmblood/TB gelding by Art Deco. He is super easy and safe, a great horse for an amateur to learn on and work on up through the levels. Pablo is honest to the jumps, will always take a joke, hacks out cross country, no spook or any vices whatsoever. He has recently started horse showing, starting in the level 0s at Garden State 2009 and working up into the level 4s and 5s at HITS Saugerties and Quentin, where he marched around both rings without a problem. Shows a ton of scope, and has a great work ethic. No prep at horse shows, very easy going personality and excellent barn manners. Pablo is a super sweet personality, loves to be groomed and is going to make someone a competitive partner in the ring. With some more horse show miles, he could also double in the big eq ring.
(BANQUO X CHARDONNAY)Congratulations to The Davis Family of Gloversville, NY!
"Fleance" is a 16.1 hand Swedish Warmblood/Holsteiner by *Banquo (SWB) out of Indiscreet (Holst) by Chardonnay (Holst). Fleance, "Chocolate" has performed up to the Level 5 and 6 jumpers; has done the hunters and is schooled to third level dressage. He is currently showing in the Adequan Open Hunters and Adult Amateur Hunters. He is a careful, scopey jumper with an extraordinary jump. A quiet and level-headed hunter, and a willing partner for dressage with lovely gaits. He is confirmed through half-pass and pirouette and has offered piaffe and passage. Chocolate is a lovely amateur ride, and has wonderful ground manners. He is a very kind horse who is easy for an amateur.
(COR NOIR X ATMON C.M.)
Congratulations to Pony Venture, LLC!
Caprice is a 17.0 hand 2001 (March 21, 2001) Oldenburg mare by Cor Noir out of a Hanoverian mare sired by Atmon C.M. She has been shown in First Level dressage and holds a lot of presence in the show ring. Caprice is an expressive mover with an enormous stride and a great mind. She has started jumping 3' courses, demonstrating a ton of scope over fences. She is adjustable to the jumps and never looks at the fences. Showed in the Level 0 at the NJHP and jumped around clean. Recently shown in the Level 1 and the 3'3" Equitation at HITS Saugerties with a young rider. Honest and brave, no prep. Excellent big eq prospect! She hacks out cross country and has no vices. With her flashy look and beautiful conformation, she will inevitably stand out in the show ring.
Congratulations to Kristen Abessinio and her trainer Mary Morrill!
Mozart is a 16.1 hand 1994 KWPN Dutch gelding by Haarlem, and was imported from Holland by Colourfields Farm as a five year old. He is an exceptional jumper who has excelled in both the hunter and jumper ring. Mozart is extremely broke, easy, and a true junior/amateur packer. Mozart has been shown through Third Level dressage, and is currently showing in the 3'5" Adequan Open Hunters. He finished 12th in the Year-End Standings for the 2008 Marshall & Sterling year. No spook, no peek at fences, and goes cross country on the buckle. No vices. He has clean x-rays, and is very sound with low miles for his age. A top prize over fences and a good piece of the hack, Mozart has several great years left of showing and will be perfect for a timid junior or adult amateur looking to stand out on this flashy confidence builder in the hunter ring.
