Meet Mr zero emotions, his name should be iceman, because this Dude is as cool as a cucumber no matter what is going on.
Pronto (you might actually need an extra 5 minutes to get places, because his favorite speed is slow, so Pronto is more Lentamente) is a stunning 7YO, 17H Zangersheide imported gelding.
In the past he has dabbled in the 1m30/1m35 jumpers in Europe, but while he has the scope to tackle the Grand Prix fences, racing against the clock is not his thang’
He has winning miles in the locals with an amateur at 3’6, and limited rated show miles at 3ft as we didn’t want to break his green status.
He will be starting in the 3’6 first year this week and hopefully gearing for the $50,000 derby in 2 months.
This horse is a true international derby machine in the making. He can lope any fence and makes the big options look easy.
He is incredibly forgiving, no peek, no spook, push ride with a very comfortable canter.
He is a genuine babysitter, the more you miss the better he is. He is very easy to find fences on (chuck the reins and enjoy a rocking chair canter to a good distance). And don’t worry, you can chip or leave from the parking lot, he doesn’t care.
Ideal horse to share between an ambitious amateur or junior who wants to step in the 3’6 and a trainer who wants to be competitive in the biggest derbies.
Mid/high five range. Located in Port Orange, FL

Showing straight from the trailer (15mn between this video and when he unloaded, no schooling, no longing, went in a new ring with new jumps with an amateur and clocked around like a pro) : https://youtu.be/_yLgiXxUjco
