Hilfiger is an elegant dressage horse with a very sweet nature. He has been superbly trained in the basics and offers a very correct and stable contact in the double or single bridle. He is very accepting of the riders aids even if the commands are not perfect, he tries to figure out what you want without ever becoming frustrated. Tommy would be best suited to a young rider or professional with big ambitions! He relies on the rider for his confidence and would not be suitable for a timid rider. I've had Tommy in my training program for 2 years and I know him inside and out. He does have some imperfections on the x-rays (Dental and back) but is easily managed. His feet and legs are in top condition. He is very well muscled and enjoys the daily work.
