Even though perfectly calm he exhibited consistent elastic powerful movement. He has excellent freedom of the shoulder, extremely active hind leg with a very good connection from back to front. Lazlo presents a very refined modern expression with a good foundation. He has excellent ground manners and is easy to handle. Screening radiographs of his stifles and front feet show no abnormalities.
At the Young Horse Show in August 2019 Lazlo showed he can also jump. Very willing and Judges comments "not even working hard, huge canter stride". He scored 8s for both his willingness and his scope. Lazlo was so brave through the shoot the judge thought he had much more experience. This was his 2nd time through the FJ shoot. Her comment: "He'll jump whatever you put in front of him."
With these qualities,he would make a great 3 day eventer!!
