TB Gelding Dressage/Eventing/Hunters

Bastian is a 13 year old TB gelding sired by Luftikus. I bought him directly from the breeder as an untouched 3 y/o. Our main focus has been on dressage and he has schooled and competed through 2nd Level. He has also competed with me at a CPED*** Dressage show in the Grade IV Para-Dressage division. His FEI passport is current. Lateral work is solid, regularly scores 7 and 8 on gaits. We’ve evented through Beginner Novice (he’s jumped up to 3’5″) and have participated in a few local hunter shows. Bastian enjoys jumping and wishes we had done more of it. Excellent ground manners, loads and trailers like a champ. Gets along well with other horses, loads of personality. Easy keeper for a thoroughbred and has great feet. Would do best with an experienced and confident AA or Young Rider. Temperament: 7. Located in Ohio.
