Eschelon, aka Parker, is a striking 16 hand, 7 year old registered/branded RPSI gelding that has the movement, attitude and scope to be your next winner. Parker has the "floaty", easy movement that you look for in a hunter, and should be in the top of any under saddle class. As for jumping, he jumps perfect every time! He has schooled both the traditional hunter/jumper, as well as cross country fences with bravery and ample scope, even schooling through the water and banks with no problem. Parker has limited show experience, but at his first show, he was reserve champion in both the Baby Green and Young Hunter at the Tucson Fall Horse Shows (A rated).
He has been schooling in dressage movements with easy lateral work, and is learning how to correctly carry himself. With his movement, this horse could show in the dressage arena, or will provide a good score in the dressage part of an event/trial.
Parker participated in a Bernie Traurig clinic in September of last year, after only 6 months under saddle and barely started over fences. He was a superstar! He was in both the 3'6" and 3' groups, excelling in both, and Bernie had nothing but good things to say about him, even taking the time to comment him throughout the clinic and after the clinic. He commented on his strong shoulder, great jumping form, and said that he will be a "big winner"!
Parker has one of the best personalities of all the horses at the barn, he thinks he is a dog! He is so lovable, easy going, loves to be scratched, and wants to be around you. Great for the vet and farrier, and has great feet and no soundness issues. Was vetted last year with no problems. Stands in cross ties or at a tie bar, and is quiet for baths and clipping (he likes his ears done!). Great on trails, even good with traffic. Nothing really spooks him, no buck, rear, bite, kick etc.
Has great bloodlines too, with multiple athletes! On his sire's side, he has the great hanoverians Espri and Eiger. On his dam's side he has the TB's Citation and Whirlaway.
Parker is a wonderful guy with only just over a year of training, but is ready to go in any direction you want! All reasonable offers considered.
