2013 Bay Gelding (Balou Du Rouet x Thalys Du Ri DAsse) 16.3 hh - Consigned by Alison McGowan Ternary Performance Horses - New York X-RAYS AVAILABLE!
IMPORTED. Schooling to 1.10m/1.15m at home, swapping leads both ways, and has all the dressage basics. A star at his first show!
Coming 6 y.o. with exciting potential for a jr/am rider to develop.
Billy (Balou du Rouet x Skippy II) shows great rideability for the equitation, darling movement for the the hunters, and a pedigree full of scopey European bloodlines. Naturally quiet and easy-going, he was a star at his first horse show and largely unimpressed by the sights, sounds, busy rings, or jumps.
He is schooling to 1.10m/1.15m at home, swapping leads both ways, and has all the dressage basics. He currently rides in a loose-ring snaffle and is responsive to the leg without being hot. He is easy to handle on the ground and not particular about his program, but will of course benefit from professional rides &/or lessons at this stage of his career.
Imported from Belgium in 2017, he's a good-minded & good-looking youngster & a blank slate of potential. Ready to finish for your chosen discipline or as a versatile hunter/jumper/equitation master.
