Lorenzo is a 7-yr-old, 16'1" Canadian Sport horse cross gelding with an uphill canter and very smooth gaits.
Update 12/5/2013: Lorenzo got to lead the first field on Junior Day with Loudoun Fairfax Hunt. He was a blast to ride.
Update: 10/30/2013. Lorenzo competed in the Orange County Hounds Team Chase and scored a fourth place out of 18 pairs in his class. He was a super star. Very confident and unflappable.
He loves to jump, has hunted over 25 times this season in first and second field of four Virginia Hunts (Loudoun Fairfax, Middleburg, Piedmont and Blue Ridge Hunt), can lead, open gates and wait, and doesn't care if other horses charge past him. Does not rush to the fence and is very soft in the mouth. Stands quietly at checks. He has an "in-your-pocket-personality" and will fit a child, lady or gentleman rider so long as they have some riding ability, confidence, balance and horse sense. Lorenzo is safe and easy which doesn't mean he is dead quiet or a slug. He is very agile and handy on any terrain, doesn't mind cattle, goats, etc. He is surefooted and loves to jump over natural jumps such as walls, coops, brush, water, vertical post and rail, logs and other cross country jumps. He has some training in the ring in dressage and is very brave over colorful jumps in the ring. Lorenzo doesn't spook, spin or buck, is sound with great feet, goes barefoot behind, no vices, can whip in, and trail rides by himself or in a group. Serious inquiries only, must go to good forever home.
