*Update 3/23/14...Nelson just finished on his dressage score to place SECOND in Beginner Novice at Loch Moy for their first Horse Trial of 2014! He was awesome in all phases scoring a total of four 8's on his dressage test. Then he clocked around stadium and cross country even though he hasn't schooled xc since the fall of 2013. He is so brave and willing and jumps whatever you put in front of him. He LOVED it! He has done a total of 2 events.....last summer at elementary and today at Beginner Novice. Next time out he will be running Novice. NOTHING fazes him! We had 7 horses at this event and were there all day. Nelson was fabulous standing on the trailer both alone and with company and then was a dream to tack up and work around....only moving when asked.

Nelson is a really special guy. He is super sweet and willing to do what is asked of him. He is beautiful, well put together with a very athletic build which lends him to being very athletic and soooo fun to ride! He is really comfortable and has wonderful gaits. He was purchased by an adult amateur as a back up fox hunt horse. He has hunted the past 2 years with Radnor Hunt and has also gone to Virginia for Hunt Week. He will jump whatever you put in front of him. Was successful in a couple of jumper shows at 3', won a schooling horse trial at Loch Moy with his owner for her first horse trial, has done pony club and gone to hunter shows as well. He is unfazed by show environments, schooling rings, new jumps. Trailers quietly. He is sound, has excellent feet in front shoes only, has no vices and very easy to live with. He can live in or out, gets along well with other horses. Can bathe, clip, pull mane, good for vet/farrier/dentist.
Nelson was a stallion in Canada until 2010 which at that time he was gelded, broke to ride and sent to the US. You would never know he was a stallion.....gets turned out with other geldings and is not aggressive, does not get attached or call to other horses. Since he has only been under saddle for a few years he has very low mileage. This is a very willing horse that tries his best to do what is asked of him. I see this horse excelling in the dressage arena or eventing. He has also been successful fox hunting. His owner decided she cannot keep up with 2 horses which is why he is sadly for sale to an excellent home. I have taught lessons on him for both junior and adult riders. He is stabled at Firefly Farm in Glenmoore, PA. We have more videos including jumping if interested, as well as a link to his breeder sale ad from Canada. Feel free to call me with any questions, Nancy.

*Rider in the video is 6'2" tall.

*Update...Nelson went to a dressage show 2/1/14 at Dunmovin Farm. He was fabulous and received a 68.5% on Training 2 test. He was perfect in warm up and all business in the show ring. This will be a GREAT horse for someone looking to do really well in the dressage arena or eventing.
