A Proper Gentleman aka Thomas

Thomas is a 2005, 16.3-17.0 hand flashy bay English Sport Horse gelding. His sire is Selle Francais and his dame is English TB. USEA#- 166201. Thomas has competed in multiple 1* events as well as Prelim competitions. Before he was imported he competed in CIC* and CIC** events overseas.

He was imported by Julie Richards and we purchased him in 2015. Thomas is an easy going guy with a great attitude. He’s a very easy keeper with great ground manners. He tends to be more on the calm side but willing to do what you ask. He would make a great horse for an amateur wanting to start slow and move up or someone who wants experience at the upper levels.

He has the scope for Intermediate but due to rider injuries he hasn’t competed intermediate yet. He consistently scores mid to low 30’s and upper 20’s. Located in Kentucky.

CIC* and Intermediate gelding

Chet the Jet. A 2008, 16.3 hh chestnut Holsteiner gelding. With remarkable bloodlines top and bottom. Sire is Rex Grannus, who himself was a multi discipline talent, competing in Grand Prix show jumping, Advanced level dressage with Dr. Reiner Klimke, and the Puissance jumpers. His dam’s sire is the legendary Thoroughbred stallion Napur, who competed in Grand Prix show jumping with Hap Hansen.

Chet has just arrived to us to help find his next partner. Chet would be very suitable for a Young Rider looking to do the Championships next year, or a competitive A/A looking for a capable partner for Prelim/ Intermediate. Chet has two and a half seasons at the Preliminary level, including a 4th place finish in the CIC* at Fresno this spring. Chet and his adult amateur owner/rider made two starts at the Intermediate level with success.

Chet shows a consistent record, and a very willing attitude toward his job. With 3 good paces, and a good temperament at the shows, Chet is consistently hitting the low 30s to high 20s in dressage. With over 60%TB blood, Chet has a tremendous gallop and great conditioning. With all the scope and bravery to go with a good jumping technique, he finds the cross country well with in his capacity. He would make an exciting horse for someone looking for an experienced partner at a great age. Located in Idaho.
