EXPERIENCE

Chopin arrived in December 2009.

This horse is an exceptionally talented and extremely easy ride.

He had been jumping 1.10m classes in Holland with an amateur rider and has proved to be a real contender. He is totally unfazed by any type of filler, settles straight into his job and obviously loves his work. He also spent some time in Spain with a 15yo girl who competed him successfully at amateur level.

His flatwork is excellent with changes well established and is very well balanced. He has a rythmical canter and is extremely pleasurable to ride. He has wonderful floating paces which means he has fantastic potential for dressage as well.

He has a classic jumping technique, neat in front and throws his back end away. He is proving to be very careful with a huge powerful jump.

Chopin is a serious talent who has lots more potential to come. He is sure to be very successful and has a great future ahead of him.
