Keepsake or as he is known in the barn, “Coolman”, is a stunning, imported 2010 warmblood gelding, standing at an impressive 17.1 hands. Coolman has incredible ring presence and is the ultimate confidence booster. His sweet and easy going nature makes him the perfect partner to develop with and an easy choice as barn favorite. He comes out of his stall the same every day, whether at home or at the shows, always willing to do whatever is asked of him in a quiet and safe demeanor. Great in the heat, great in the extreme cold. Stall to ring at the shows, no lunging, no ear plugs.
Coolman’s show record was already extensive upon his arrival in North America, successfully competing up to 1.40m including FEI classes and brought an adult amateur up through the ranks. He also has an impeccable flatwork education and can teach shoulder in, haunches in, half pass at trot and canter, counter canter, & canter pirouettes.
Recently shown at WEF & WEC (both Ocala and Ohio) from 3’ through 3’6”, Big Eq, USHJA National Hunter Derby (jumping all the high options), Adult Amateur Hunters, Children’s Hunters, Junior Eq & Adult Eq. Took his 14 yo catch rider from the 3’ Children’s into her first 3’6” experience in the Maclay & WIHS classes here at WEF all in less than 2 weeks from sitting on him and took her to her first Hunter Derby. Also won a class in the Adult Amateurs at WEF with a new adult rider Week 8.
