Flambeau, aka “Fynn” is a very athletic 2010 dark bay GOV Oldenburg gelding. His sire is the impressive 17.0 hh stallion, Freestyle (Florestan), who had the highest German dressage index in North America and is ranked in the top 1% of all German dressage stallions. In addition to being an accomplished dressage horse, Freestyle received an “8” for his jumping ability in his stallion performance test and is known for producing excellent rideability. Fynn is out of the MMB German Oldenburg mare, Geralyn’s Pleasure (Maudlin), who received excellent marks in her mare inspection and has produced several lovely foals for our program. Geralyn’s sire, Maudlin, has produced a number of fine sporthorses. Fynn showed on the line as a weanling and yearling. He received very good scores and finished the 2011 season ranked 3rd in the US for GOV Colts/Geldings of his age. He is registered with the GOV/OHBS and is lifetime recorded with USEF & USDF.
Fynn has been consistently handled from birth and is well socialized. He's so smart, picks up on new things easier than the majority of horses out there, and new things don't frazzle him. He loads, clips, ties, cross ties, bathes, and is good for the vet/farrier. He has a lot of personality on the ground and an excellent work ethic under saddle, which makes him very enjoyable to work with.
Fynn is very smart, quiet, and a quick study under saddle. Ground covering and exceptionally well balanced gaits. He is forward, responsive, light in the bridle, and very supple, yet easy/uncomplicated to ride. Solid WTC and starting lead changes, leg yields and shoulder in. He has demonstrated great form over fences through the jump chute and under saddle - clean up front and careful behind. Under saddle he is keen at the jumps.
Fynn genuinely loves people and loves to work. He's the first to meet you at the gate. He is the trainer's favorite and she says he is "an American bred horse that the Germans would love." This is a happy, personable, fun gelding that is looking for his partner.
