Gatsby is a wonderfully bred Dutch warmblood and a clear Grand Prix prospect with his enormous potential.
At only 8 years old, he has already competed up to the Intermediare 1 with scores up to 70%. Gatsby is schooling all of the Grand Prix movements and shows talent for the piaffe and passage. This is a horse for the future, and he is just at the beginning of his successful career.
Gatsby has been owned and trained by the same rider since he was a 4 year old. As a 5 year old, he was the Reserve Champion Futurity horse for CDS and was Reserve Champion USDF Horse of the Year at First Level. As a 6 year old, Gatsby was the CDS Futurity Champion. In 2018 Gatsby had scores up to 73% in the Prix St George.
In 2019 he competed in the Developing Prix St. George classes with scores up to 71.9%. This spring, he won the Prix St. Georges at Del Mar National horse show in a class of over 20 horses. Gatsby is a VERY competitive horse who is consistently at the top of his class.
Gatsby is a wonderful horse to ride and be around. He is forward thinking, very uphill and uncomplicated. He is good at shows, hacks around the property, and goes easily in the snaffle or double bridle. While he is powerful, he would be suitable for a competent amateur. No buck or bolt and he has been competed a lot at the big venues. He has been very sound (knock on wood) with no lameness issues and very clean x-rays as a 4-year-old.
This is a sad sale due to the owner having too many horses to support. Must be to a good home.
