Poseidon-3 1/2 year old 16.1+ h. palomino Dutch Warmblood gelding. By Goldmaker out of a Goodtimes/ Wanroij mare. Poseidon's sire, Goldmaker, successfully completed his 70 day Stallion Performance test on November 12th, 2011, making him the ONLY cremello Thoroughbred stallion in North America to be
fully licensed and approved with a warmblood registry. Throughout the 70 Day Stallion Test, Goldmaker received high marks for his rideability, character and temperament. He wowed ALL of the judges at the testing - both registry inspectors and testing judges - with his exceptional cross country ability. He has
a balanced, cadenced canter, a good trot, extraordinary jump and willing, forward temperament.
Poseidon's dam, Dakota KF is by Goodtimes(Nimmerdor/Caletto I). As a 3 year old stallion, Goodtimes was champion of the stallion test. He is well known for producing all round athletes. He has offspring that competed in GP dressage and also in the highest levels of jumping. Dakota's dam Mystique was Keur mare with KWPN and was top foal in the country in her birth year.
Poseidon is easy going with a volunteer attitude. He has been lunged over small jumps and shows an aptitude and willingness to jump in good form. Under saddle he shows three correct gaits, and good movement in a steady contact. The bonus is his eye-catching palomino color- he is indeed a Barbie horse!
UPDATE! Poseidon was taken off property for an away from the farm experience and he was perfectly behaved. He loaded and unloaded quietly, stood quietly on the trailer while the other horse was ridden, and was perfectly behaved in the strange ring under saddle.
He is entered in a dressage schooling show on Feb. 24.
