**PRICE REDUCTION** This one is special! We are looking for the perfect home for him. Dancing Dutton is a 2022 colt with lots of chrome by Don Quichot out of Under My Skin (a Thoroughbred mare by Into Mischief approved by the Holsteiner Verband). He is showing huge promise for dressage after executing piaffe at several days old and regularly attempting canter pirouettes in the pasture. His trot is floaty and lengthy and his canter is balanced. He is very friendly and inquisitive and will greet you at the gate every time you visit his pasture. He is also intelligent and brave with just a bit of spark. He will most likely finish around 16.1-2 hands. He was inspected and approved in September 2022 with the Holsteiner Verband and was just one point shy of a premium score. He has been weaned and is available now. Contact me for payment plans and alternative options.
