2005 gelding by 00 Seven out of Savana by Welt Hit II. He has three very balanced gaits and good freedom in his shoulder. He will make a strong dressage prospect. He has great work ethic and is fun and easy to ride. He is training at First Level and will be competing at Training & First Level this year. Avon is schooling First Level movements at home.
He recently competed in his first dressage show and performed extremely well. At University of Findlay’s 2010 Spring Open Dressage Show, Avon competed in two Training Level Tests (1 and 2). He received a 69.1 and 72.9. The judge rated his gaits as 8 and 9, impulsion 7 and submission 5. We were very pleased with his first outing.
