He is one of only a few Triathletes in the stallion field and we value this engaging, beautiful boy highly!
He has three impressive gaits, a wonderful galloping stride and couldn't be more willing in training and comfortable to sit.. He has highly successful offspring in all fields, dearly loved by their riders. Check a few of them out on his offspring page. His daughter, Copycat Chloe, won the NYR championships at Intermediate level, now competing Advanced.
