This fairytale looking 5 yr old gelding is a dream come true, combining solid training AND beauty, at an ideal age, all in one package. Long Champ ( registered as Douwe ( we have sold and imported 4 other douwe's, so we call this beauty Long Champ!) is the sweetest and most gentle boy you could ever know. AND he is VERY well trained to ride AND drive, with a solid dressage foundation coming from his classical dressage training, and due to his fairytale appearance, he will take your breathe away. --he has the looks BSF's strives to find, and offer..... A TRUE FAIRYTALE HORSE. We fell in LOVE with this boy on our recent trip to Holland, but tried not to stare at him too much, knowing we couldn't have him ( he wasnt for sale). Now that we have him....THIS ONE WON'T LAST.Long Champ is blessed with the highest level of Suspension, Extension, and Over-track possible. His forward movement is achieved via his powerful back end. Just take a look at his short coupled back which allows his ideal conformation to dictate his superb movement. His short coupled back allows for his strong, positive overtrack, which is essential to creating his excellent forward movement out of back-end power and control. Here is an upper level dressage prospect, and he has a tall, medium baroque build. Long Champs is blessed with Wobkes long legs, and long elegant neck. All this, AND Long Champs is not lazy--he has an outstanding work ethic, yet is not the slightest bit spooky. We think he has what it takes to really move up the levels here in the US. He has a very good walk, excellent ground covering action at the trot, and a VERY smooth canter. He is equally suitable as a pleasure/trail horse. This horse has the natural talent to make any dressage rider VERY happy, and the age, experience, and enough training to make a novice or beginner or pleasure/trail rider feel comfortable.Allow Long Champs to be YOUR dream friesian:)His price INCLUDES his import and quarantine. Just let us know if you prefer he fly into NY or chicage or miami or canada or mexico, otherwise he is set to arrive in Los Angeles!
