When Storm first popped out of his 4'6" paddock at only 2 years old, we figured he wanted to be a jumper when he grew up. This thought was reinforced later on when we went out to the barn one morning and found him in a different pasture than the one we left him in the night before. That said, now that he is beginning his saddle training we are seeing considerable potential for the dressage arena as well. He has been working under saddle for a month and we have found him to be evenly balanced at a walk, trot and canter to the left and right and naturally shifted to his hind end, making him agile and responsive with good brakes. Please contact us for a link to video of him ridden at a walk/trot/canter, halting and backing. In the video attached to this ad, you will see him flow from a lovely trot into a canter across the diagonal where he executes flying lead changes every other stride. He has a tremendous amount of natural athleticism and we believe that he would be competitive as either a dressage horse or jumper, but given his overall talent he may make an exceptional event horse.

Storm is a stunning grey with lots of presence. His temperament is a lovely mix of common sense and show off – he rarely gets ruffled but loves to put on a show and be the center of attention. In the attached video, Storm flagged his tail and rattled and blew the whole time with only a little bit of clicking and arm waving on our part. In the middle of all that, he kept stopping and mooching for treats. He was not the slightest bit ruffled, he was just having fun showing off! I think this exhibits the best possible combination of attitude necessary to be a serious competitor coupled with the common sense necessary to be trustworthy and focused on the task at hand.

Based upon his current height and the height of his sire/dam, we expect he will mature out at a minimum of 16.1hh, and more likely 16.2hh+. He is registered/branded with Oldenburg Registry North America.
