Gustav, affectionately known as “Goose”, is a 17.1h 2015 imported German Warmblood gelding sired by Goldburg and out of a Rivero II mare. Goose has proven himself unstoppable the last two years as a four and five year old. During this odd 2020 Covid season, Goose was able to compete at Second Level, earning both of his qualifying scores in one weekend and winning both of his classes with scores of 67% and 65%. He is currently schooling walk-canter and canter-walk transitions, counter canter, and half pass.
As a young four year old, Goose was unbeatable in Wellington, scoring 9’s on his gaits, and was a judge favorite at Global. He had continued his winning streak in New England during the 2019 season with twelve first-place finishes. This special young horse has the movement of an international horse and a wonderful temperament to match.
Goose has had many successes in 2019 including the following:
**Winning Training Level Open division at Region 8 Championships in Saugerties, NY.
**NEDA High Score of the weekend at Regionals with a 78.448% in his open division
