DIJON Friesian Gelding For Sale
Dijon is a drop dead gorgeous LONG haired gelding with an amazing presence. We fell in love with him when we were in the Netherlands in august. We have followed his training both under saddle and in harness, and when he became available for purchase recently, we immediately bought him. This is one COOL horse! Michael's offspring are very black with very good hair. Dijon's dam's sire is Oege Pref. It is rare to find horses with Oege Pref in them these days, as Oege is deceased. In 1980 the young stallions Oege 267, was one of the first to graduate from the newly instituted 50 day stallion test held in Ermelo. This first year was a trial, and it was determined that this test was positive for the breed, and Oege was outstanding in the test. All of our own personal horses have Oege in them---the HAIR man:)Under saddle, Dijon has extremely supple forward gaits and his hocks nearly touch his belly! Talk about tracking up well.... He almost hesitates in the trot, with incredible knee-action AND extension. His canter is beautifully 'uphill.' He is entirely uncomplicated: you can take him anywhere and while curious and alert, he will do what you ask without spooking or spinning. His relaxed personality has allowed him to learn very quickly and will also make him an ideal showhorse down the line. Dijon was ridden by a 6 yr old child when we were there----yet he is also is a sensation to ride, for the more advanced riders. He stays very calm and is not a nervous horse.He is a true showhorse but can be ridden by most riders, no matter their level. Dijon is one beautiful boy and if you like hair, he has LOTS of it! We love his disposition and his motion at the trot will just take your breath away. Dijon has been professionally trained to ride and drive. He is such a good boy, always on the bit, amazingly well trained for such a young horse---we LOVE his character!!!This is a rare opportunity to acquire a true Showhorse with a very easy-going disposition. Dijon's price includes import and quarantine as a gelding, to NY or LA.
