Spectacular FEI Prospect. 3 VERY GOOD Gaits, Fantastic Brain and very willing to work. This big powerful gelding has the pedigree for success and can handle the pressure and the intense training required to make it to the top. He stands 16.2 ½ HH and is 6 years old. Successfully showing in the FEI 6 year old classes.
Sire is the young star Oldenburg stallion Sir Gregory who is proving to be a super dressage progenitor and is also a successful competition horse in addition to a very busy breeding schedule. He has great scores at the Prix St. George level and is sired by Sir Donnerhall out of a Don Gregory mare….a combination of the best proven dressage bloodlines Germany has to offer.
Dam is the mare Riverdale who was ridden in her younger years but has been a career broodmare for us at VandenBrink Warmbloods giving us Foal Futurity winners, FEI Young horse champions and successful dressage horses for their clients including one currently showing PSG and schooling all the GP work. She is by Kadans a super Dutch stallion shown successfully at the Grand Prix Level, and contains the very good producing lines of El Corona, Amor, Doruto and Ulft.
San Juan has a super start under saddle has been to some horse shows and handles it like a champ. He wows the crowd, receives super scores and comments from the judges. Great expressive front end, super powerful back end with a natural ability to sit. He’s sound, correct, clean legged, with fabulous feet.
He’s a future star for a professional, and has the brain and work ethic to be a suitable horse for an ambitious amateur.
San Juan was bred and raised by VandenBrink Warmbloods.
He is currently in training at Jessop Dressage in Pefferlaw, just East of Newmarket, Ontario.
