Offered for your consideration: 17.0 hand 2011 Black Bay Hanoverian, Carbonado (Chivas/Wanderkoenig/), affectionately known at the barn as “Senator.” “Senator” is a ten year old gelding with a striking presence. His puppy-dog personality coupled with his trainability and willingness to work is what makes him a barn favorite. He is sadly being offered for sale due to his owner no longer being able to ride.
Senator has been in 60 days of dressage training and would be ready to go out and show training level. Previous to that he was ridden several days a week on the flat and schooled over low level jumps. Senator has been jumped up to 3 feet in the hunter ring as well as schooled over cross country fences showing his versatility as a riding horse. Senator is honest to the jump, never refusing or spooking and has truly enjoyed his dressage training in learning to utilize his entire body and respond to the rider’s aids.
Senator is not a beginner’s horse as he needs someone who is fair and confident without over-facing him. Senator is a “give all” horse when he is treated within these parameters. Senator has had low riding mileage during his career and has the potential to make a great hunter/jumper, dressage mount, or eventing horse.
Senator is well-suited for sport as his pedigree shows a high propensity for both jumping and dressage. Senator’s sire, Chivas, comes from a well known jumping line boasted heritage to Contour and Escudo I. Chivas stood at the Celle State Stud in Germany and had many offspring compete in the jumping sport. Wanderkoenig, a popular dressage stallion from the UK, boasts a stellar temperament and was used as a foundation sire, with offspring such as Wilander-Star, Waldfee, Finnigan, and Benicio being produced from this wonderful stallion’s dynasty.
