Inizio - Outstanding FEI Young Horse Candidate!
Sunday, November 11, 2018
Inizio aka "Izzy" was bred in Holland, and maintained by his breeder until his importation to the United States early 2018 as a 5 year old. He is by the stallion Cadans M (x Sir Donnerhall), out of a Eusebio mare, and registered with KWPN. This boy is as talented as he is eye catching! An old soul in a young horses body with a heart of gold and a will to please. He has a warm a cuddly personality on the ground, looks forward to his work and will meet you at the gate. Under saddle he is honest and hard working, and sensitive while still being sensible. He is not spooky, nor is he dishonest.
Izzy has three exceptional gaits that are both comfortable and rhythmic. The canter offers air time as well as jump, the trot possesses suspension along with great activity, and the walk is forward thinking with a nice over reach. His first show was a huge success as he earned blue ribbons, top marks, and a lot of praise from the judges in every class he entered. Izzy scored consistently in the 70's = with scores at Training Level of 74.7% and 77%, and scores at First Level of 72% and 75% which was given by top judge Lilo Fore. In addition to an excellent performance he also handled the hustle and bustle of a busy show environment like a gentlemen and a pro.
He is currently schooling Third level with all the lateral movements including shoulder in and half pass, has a confirmed single change, and has even successfully played with 3 tempi's. Izzy would be an exceptional candidate for the FEI 6 year old tests next year and has the talent to succeed at the FEI levels. He also loves a good hack around the property solo or with a buddy.
With his sweet demeanor and pleasing personality Izzy would be well suited to an ambitious AA or JR/YR working with a trainer as well as he has the talent and presence to be a successful partner for a professional. He is healthy and UTD on all routine vet care, has excellent feet, and clean X rays which also included films for both the neck and back upon import. A pleasure to have in the barn, easy to handle, and does well in a stall, paddock or pasture alone or with other horses. He loves his grooming time, ties, cross ties, clips, bathes, transports easily and is well behaved for both the vet and farrier. A truly very special horse sure to make someone an exceptional competitive partner!
