D'Artagnan Skrødstrup is a 16.1+ 4 year old Knabstrupper gelding by the imported Danish stallion Colorado Skrødstrup. He is a true upper level prospect with the temperament to be an amateur or children's mount but the talent for a professional to take to the top.

He has shown extensively on the line, winning at Devon and placing well at the USEA Future Event Horse Championships twice. Under saddle he is uncomplicated and willing. He is responsive to the aids and forward thinking while being very quiet and sensible. He goes in a simple D ring snaffle full time and never leaves you wanting more. Dart is a quick learner and a forgiving partner, making him a true gem for a junior or amateur rider who is interested in bringing along a young horse to the upper levels.

Suitable for any ring, Dart is ready to be finished in any direction. He excels over fences and cross country, eating up distances. He is very handy and adjustable with a very even consistent canter. He has excellent gaits with huge reach from the shoulder and immense impulsion. He steps under himself and tracks up beautifully without encouragement. Unlimited dressage potential with a natural aptitude towards self-carriage.

Over fences Dart has gorgeous form. He has great bascule, and jumps effortlessly. Dart handles new obstacles from grids, to tables, to 4ft oxers without hesitation. He is so casual and fun we have to remind ourselves to go slowly because of his age.

Dart is a barn favorite. He's a total ham and LOVES people. He enjoys baths and flaps his lips at the hose begging for water. Not spooky or reactive he is great shipping and has no vices. He takes all new things in stride and settles in very quickly in new places. He has been to a handful of shows from hunters to horse trials and schooled cross country extensively. He is traffic safe, cow safe, sheep safe, and husband proof. This is a young horse with FEI potential and the mind to pack a ten year old kid for her Sunday lesson (ask me how I know!)

Dart is available to be seen locally and at area shows, price to increase as his résumé expands.
