Balios is a 6 year old Selle Francais hunter gelding imported in April 2021.
He is a push ride who is as honest as they come, never looking at a fence no matter what ring, at home or while competing. He has a ton of stride, easily walks the lines, as well as an extremely forgiving attitude.
This horse is the easiest horse to ship and prep. He can walk right from stall (or trailer) to show ring without putting a foot out of place, consistently maintaining a relaxed demeanour. In the barn, he is very much so the type to enjoy attention and cuddles.
Balios competed in the 4 & 5 year old series in France and is currently competing with an Adult Amateur in the Pre-green lows and 3’ Jr/Am Derby to maintain green status. Balios would also make a great 3’6” horse for someone looking for a Junior Working or Amateur Owner hunter.
Always in the ribbons, some of his accomplishments at recent Gold/A shows include: Champion for the Adult Amateur division, Reserve Champion for the Pre-Greens, and 5th in the Jr/Am derby. All showing with his AA rider, and no pro prep.
X-Rays from April 2021 available.
He will continue to build his North American resume; Available to be tried at A shows in Ontario.
