Every Wish Granted - Shown Through 4th Level
Our dressage schoolmaster! 2009 16.2h Dutch Warmblood gelding by Winterprinz. AA-friendly with 3 good gaits and a lovely temperament. Forward with very easy lateral work and expressive changes. Shown through 4th level and has schooled through PSG, although his current rider schools mainly 1st-3rd level. He is forward and uphill with lovely suspension. Even more stunning in person! He is so fancy! Very easy lateral work and expressive flying changes. Wishy is excellent for teaching riders how they are supposed to ride. He has been ridden by junior riders and amateurs, occasionally even used for adult beginner riding lessons.
Wishy also loves jumping and trail riding. He frequently hauls off-site for 8-20 mile group trail rides and attends hunter paces twice per month, jumping through 2’6”. He will pop over all of the cross-country fences - logs, coops, walls, coffins, ditches, banks, water hazards, etc. and could go out and show BN any day of the week. Wishy is the same horse every day of the year no matter what the weather is like or how long he goes without riding. No lunging or prep ever.
Wishy has minor arthritis in one low-mobility joint that has remained unchanged since he was first broke to ride with documented X-rays proving there has been no change. He is sound barefoot with no lameness issues, no maintenance and no vices. He has impeccable ground manners and a sweet, quiet disposition. Wishy stands nicely for clipping, braiding, tying and cross-tying, etc. He is one of the demo horses that the Chi Institute uses for veterinarians to practice on, which essentially means he is well-behaved and patient. He is a barefoot easy keeper and lives out in a mixed herd. UTD on everything. Rides in a gentle snaffle. Wishy is happy doing any combination of dressage, jumping, cross country, and trail riding. He is suitable for talented junior riders or adult amateurs working with a trainer.

The horse most dressage riders dream of – a 7-yr 16.2h dark bay gelding with upper-level potential. Damario has shown through 1st level with scores as high as 73% at recognized dressage shows. He is an uphill mover with 3 easy-to-sit gaits. Collection is easy for him and he loves to show off his moves. He is schooling second level and learning flying changes. He also enjoys off-site trail rides and hunter paces. He is the farm favorite! Easy enough for a JR or AA in a program to bring along.
