Finny is an imported loving FEI quality rising 5 year old. He was selected for the elite auction but was scooped up by EDI just a few weeks prior to entering. Finny’s half brother Stamford (owned by Charlotte Jorst) is already excelling in the international dressage arena and his dam has already produced 5 international Grand Prix horses. Finny is top prospect to develop all the way to GP. He already piaffe's on the ground and shows ease in the piaffe/passage movement under saddle.
Finny began his show career just a few months ago and with only two shows has won both his classes (Training Level & USEF young horse test) with scores in the 70%'s impressing judges with his appearance and gaits. His phenomenal movement has been noticed internationally and he was selected to be a part of the Carl Hester clinic in Del Mar where Carl described him as "a 4 year old that already looks like a 14 year old." Carl also went on to compliment Finny on his "two hoof over-track, easy rhythm, natural balance and featherlight contact" and even compared his very active hind leg to his very own Valegro.
Finny shows great self-carriage, has elastic movement, a supple feel and is extremely balanced for his young age. He already piaffe's on the ground and shows ease in the piaffe/passage movement under saddle. He is a professionals DREAM with plenty of go and zero spook. Also a great horse for an amateur looking for exceptional quality.
Finny is the spitting image of his gorgeous sire, For Romance. For Romance received a 9.25 for his trot and a 9 for his canter at his 30-day testing in Vechta. His elite bloodlines include big names like Sir Donnerhall, Rohdiamant and Florestan I, amongst others.
Overall, Finny is a gorgeous, easy going and very rideable youngster with unlimited potential. Finny was recently imported and is in full training with Joseph Newcomb at Arroyo Del Mar in San Diego.
