Victor, imported from Germany in January 2018, is an athletic and versatile gelding that can go towards multiple disciplines and be a star in each! Currently he has been schooled more towards dressage, and is solid in his second level movements, showing aptitude for lateral movements and schooling lovely half-passes, and starting to work on flying changes. He takes his dressage work in stride, with great balance, rhythm, presence, and three lovely gaits. His work ethic is second to none, always giving his best for his rider and really wanting to please. Clever and smart, he eagerly picks up new concepts when training him. Even with his larger size, he is light in the hand, with a very nice supple contact on the reins, and is built more narrow, so he can accommodate various heights of riders. He is light and responsive to the aids and forward thinking (without being hot). Currently he has been shown up to Second Level and has been great to handle at shows, very willing and obedient, even in new surroundings, with all scores between 67% and 71%. He also loves jumping and has had some schooling undersaddle over fences. He clearly takes great pleasure in jumping and his athleticism shows in his nice scopey jump, and ability to quickly adjust himself to fences. His athleticism, versatility and trainability will make him suited to whatever discipline his new rider wants to take him in. He loves being outdoors, behaving great in the outdoor ring as well as on hacks.
He is easy to handle, perfect for farrier and vet and loads well. A gentleman for grooming, he enjoys being around people and having attention. Currently shod on just the front feet, he has lovely solid hooves, and clean legs with no issues or maintenance requirements. He is simple for turnout, and can be turned out with other horses with no problems. He is up to date on shots and farrier and has basic x-rays available for viewing.
His sire, Viscount, has continued to gain in popularity in the last number of years, consistently producing highly rideable horses. He not only passes along his jumping ability, but also his expressive gaits, with offspring excelling in both dressage and jumper disciplines. On the dam's side lies Escudo, well known for producing top-quality jumpers and hunters.
