CCI** Schoolmaster, Perfect Gentleman for YR or AA

Lanzz is a 16.3 2005 Bay Dan WB/TB cross (Languester (Dan WB) x Classical Jazz (Tb)). Henry is a 2 star schoolmaster with several wins at the Preliminary and Intermediate levels. He has a heart of gold and is the ultimate gentleman. He has completed two seasons at the Intermediate/2* level and prior to that he has a flawless preliminary/1* record.

He is easy on the flat with nice movement scoring in the 20’s and low 30’s and an incredible classic, correct jump. He is the most forgiving type that will jump from any distance and fix any mistakes, making him the perfect schoolmaster to get Preliminary and Intermediate miles on. Before eventing he also successfully competed in 1.30 showjumping with an adult amateur. His barn manners and temperament make him a delightful addition to any barn. Located in Ocala.

Prelim Packer – Potential to be dressage horse

Sympatico (Simon) is a 9yo 17h TB gelding who has competed through Preliminary. Simon has never had a run out/stop from his first cross rail to his last Prelim fence. He has big movements in all 3 gaits. Moves more like a warmblood than a thoroughbred. He is brave and bold cross country, very point and shoot.

Although he does have some clear stadium rounds, he is not always the most careful horse in the ring, which is reflected in his sale price. Simon has a lot of schooling and would be a great choice to build confidence cross country. This amazing horse has taken me from never even having shown, to Training in my first year and Preliminary in under 2 years.

His dressage is big and forward. He’s confirmed on the bit and has a trot that’s easy to sit. He’s showing first level dressage and has the potential to go on as a dressage horse. Simon can also hack out alone or in a group. Busy roads or quiet trails, he’s always a good boy. Not spooky and never bucks.

Simon has impeccable ground manners. Always a barn favourite wherever he goes. Puppy dog attitude, which is evident the second you meet him. Loads, clips, bathes, stands for farrier etc. UTD on shots and teeth. Located in Ocala.

Competitive Training Level Eventer

Started as a dressage horse and transitioned easily to an eventing career. Comfortably schooling preliminary level showjumping and cross country and 2nd level dressage movements. Amateur/junior friendly but not for a beginner. Great horse for ambitious eventing or dressage rider who wants to be competitive in the show ring. Owner in college. Located in Ocala.
