Listed in 4 people's Favorites.Huge talent in this GELDING!!! As we say around the barn here, "Helio, all day every day"!!! See new video of how bombproof Helio is outside in fields, hills!
A true gentleman, Helio has 3 quite fancy ground covering gaits, a brilliantly willing mind, and a lovely heart of gold. Plus a superb temperament for his GP future. His walk literally has a 12" overstep! Super supple & loose, athletic type, very good swing over the back. Very smooth to sit!
9 yr old 15.2h grey (shimmering silver!!! And looks taller cuz of his neck getting more muscle and more up!) Top quality rideability & trainability! We can envision him in the CDI ring in FL with a JR, Young Rider, up and coming trainer! Helio is very safe, although greenish as in minimal show ring experience so far, he's learning the aids & training scale very quickly. Perfect for an amateur/ Junior, or trainer to bring up thru the levels to GP. Very sweet & affectionate, a barn favorite, easy on the ground for anyone to handle.
When you walk in his stall, he literally puts his little head down into your chest for a hug! Helio is a huge luv bug!
Helio is a very mature-minded & self-confident guy. Which is why he's able to learn everything so quickly.
Gaucho III grandson, so Olympic pedigree. Gaucho III was extremely popular on the East coast for many years!!!
Currently solid 2nd level and doing beautiful half passes in trot & canter for 3rd. The changes got him a little uppity so we stopped doing them for now. Ready to show 2nd level! Flying changes were easy for him to learn!!! He does walk to canter transitions and same in downward transitions, Huge half passes, super in the shoulder ins and leg yeilds.
Loads and hauls, bathes, clippers ok! He lets anyone do anything to him in the stall, X-ties, he's super duper gentle, loves all scratches & hugs, really a gem.
