**Update!! Chipotle attended a clinic with Lars Petersen in Aug 2017. Chip was a star. He was well behaved and confident in the unfamiliar surroundings and Lars was helpful in guiding us toward more collection to develop the piaffe. Enjoy the video.**
Chipotle arrived in the US in Oct 2015. This 2006, sweet, black 3/4 Lusitano gelding has been a joy to ride and work with. He always tries his best and has progressed quicker than expected. His 3 gaits are pure and energetically forward with length and suspension. This horse arrived doing Training and 1st level and has progressed nicely into Third and Fourth level. He has also begun developing consistency with his passage. Lateral movements are quite easy for Chip.
He is wonderful to groom, clip, bathe, and stands quietly for the farrier. His training also involves lunging and work over ground poles. No lameness or stable vices. X rays done prior to importation are clean. All he lacks is road miles so we are currently taking him to his first shows. Attached is a video of his most recent schooling show doing First level.
