Sire is a multiple class winner in Hunter Under Saddle, Hunter Hack, Pleasure Driving, Trail & multiple AQHA all arounds.
Sires dam, Tu A Shadow Miss, was a three (3) time world champion with 899 AQHA points. Commander Shadow is homozygous for the black gene.
We have hand raised Tess from birth with other horses, kids and dogs. Tess will be comfortable in either an outside paddock or stalled. This filly is a very fluid, graceful mover. She has been lounged from weaning, and has had all groundwork done. She trailers, clips and ties. She stands well for the farrier. Currently, Tess is starting under saddle. We feel that Tess can be registered with the German Sporthorse Registry.
