Lucky Seven is a 17-hand, 5-year-old Trakehner gelding with the quality, talent and temperament to excel in eventing, dressage, or jumpers. He is quiet and tolerant enough for a beginner and sensitive enough for a professional or ambitious amateur. He has competed at Novice eventing and has schooled 3’ 6” courses with obvious talent for more. His lateral work is effortless and light with leg yield, renver, travers, half-pass, and counter canter all easily at the rider’s fingertips. He also does lovely changes with support. He is a pleasure to deal with and has a huge personality. He is a very special horse! $32,000
Best Kept Secret
Best Kept Secret is a 2013, 17+ hand Trakehner gelding. He is by the Grand Prix show jumping stallion Horalas Pg*, out of the very special mare Barina (out of a mare by Peron Pg*, Olympic bronze medalist in dressage and by Graditz Pg*). Barina is also the dam of the approved Grand Prix dressage stallion Bond James Bond. Best Kept Secret, aka BK, was the Reserve Champion for the West Coast FEH (Future Event Horse). This exceptionally well-bred character has a ton of personality and will keep you laughing and endlessly entertained! His work ethic is also exceptional. He has lovely gaits and a soft mouth. He is sensitive and responsive to light aids without being hot or difficult. He is a real pleasure to ride—so much so, you won’t want to get off!

Bellespoir – SOLD
Bellespoir – Congratulations to Jenny Salinger! Bellespoir, “Belle, is a 16.0, 2009 registered Holsteiner. Chestnut with lots of chrome and three very good gaits. She is an exceptional jumper. She is very successfully competing at Preliminary Eventing and as a Jumper in the 1.20. She is brave, sound and athletic enough to be an Advanced-level event horse. She is super on the trail and very quiet and easy to ride, suitable for an adult amateur or child but talented and special enough for a professional or ambitious Young Rider. She would make an ideal Young Rider horse as she is now qualified to do a 1-star, and will most certainly make a two-star horse.
