Want to get noticed in the dressage ring? I’ve only been able to scratch the surface of this guy’s talents but I’m so excited to offer him to someone that is going to continue to develop this prospect to reach his full potential! Monty is a 5 year old registered Dutch Harness x Hackney horse cross from British-Canadian lines with ground covering strides and big engines. He stands 16.2 hands and DNA tested black (Eeaa) Very experienced driving horse, already a Novice Division champion, but he has been focused mainly on his under saddle work the past 7 weeks and his trainability has allowed him to make leaps and bounds in how much he understands his dressage work. He willingly takes that great high set neck and stretches into the contact. With time it will become steadier and keep increasing the swing in his gaits. Contrary to his breeding, Monty has a great canter. It’s easily becoming his best gait and shows both the ability to sit and push when needed. His trot is not the crazy high knee action but one that covers a lot of ground which will allow him to lengthen and extend as he builds up the strength in the hindend. Monty is not a spooky horse and is quite confident and bold. Has been taken on trail rides around the farm and never puts a foot out of place. Monty has been to one schooling dressage show with great comments from the judge, has also competed successfully in driving and been exhibited at the Iowa Horse Fair.
Easy to handle on the ground, clips and stands well for vet and farrier. Has a clean PPE with xrays from April ‘21. Safe for an amateur owner in a training program. Located in Germantown, Wi.
