Fernando van de La Cheval
Confirmed first place winning horse at 3rd Level Dressage
Fernando is a 2009 registered Friesian Sport Horse. Large boned and standing at 16 hands he is well suited to riders of most any body type. His build is sturdy and strong while maintaining a beautiful, ground-covering, and elegant stride. An ideal amateur mount, he is fancy and will show very well but is incredibly willing with an unparalleled temperament. He is so amazingly reliable that I rode him all the way through my pregnancy to the very week I delivered; most of this time was during his very first year under saddle as a four year old.
Fernando is a perfect gentleman on the ground and under saddle. He even performed at his first schooling dressage show after only 30 days under saddle scoring in the 80's at intro level. An absolute dream in the arena, away at the shows, and on the trails. He crosses water, walks over logs, and crosses bridges. He earned a 70 on his last Second Level Test 3 and has just begun showing at Third Level earning a first place at his last show with a 68.8%. Fernando is very easy to teach as you will not find a more willing partner. He has great energy without being the least bit hot. He always gets his leads and has been performing the following movements: medium trot and canter, extensions, shoulder-in, leg-yield, travers, renvers, turn on the haunches, simple changes, and counter-canter, flying lead changes, half-pass at trot and canter. Fernando can be ridden in a snaffle as well as a double bridle and is the perfect model of obedience and willingness either way.

Anatinza (Ana) is an energetic mare with star potential in the dressage arena! She is a well-bred, upcoming 5 year old Lipizzan mare with loads of movement. Her gaits have great winning potential and she is fabulously naturally balanced. She would be best suited for an experienced adult wanting to show. This is a very intelligent mare that picks up her training very quickly. Ana is going very nicely under saddle at walk, trot, and canter.
