Incredibly thrilled to offer this magnificent colt for sale!
Lapinwood Handsome Gatsby is a 2 month old colt out of the imported GRP Samira De Luce who is by the impressive pony stallion Champion De Luxe. Gatsby s sire is a Virginia Bred pony by Maple Side Wishlist and out of the incomparable Lapinwood Oodalottie.
Gatsby is expected to mature a good sized large and already presents with substantial substance and bone. This pony is built like a brick house! He’ has the most delicious personality, curious and kind.
His dam was imported from Germany and she couldn’t be any more lovely. She has that ground covering huge stride that we all drool over watching the top pony hunters march around at pony finals each year. We expect nothing less of Gatsby.
His sire has consistently put phenomenal foals on the ground. They all have the same demeanor as Gatsby, soulful eyes, adjustable and easy to work with personalities.
This colt would make one of the top pony stallions in the country based on his impressive and proven bloodliness - his sire, dam, damsire and granddam continue to consistently produce show stoppers. His siblings that are currently on the ground are all absolutely lovely animals. He is sure to make his breeder and new owner proud, both in the in-hand and under saddle show rings - enjoy the ride all the way to the top with this remarkable boy!
Show in hand, stand him for a year or two,, collect and freeze him and then let him dominate the pony hunter world!
This boy will blow you away, he really is that good.
Come see him in person, here in Virginia. He’s eligible Virginia Bred and will be lifetime registered with USEF.
Available at weaning/no earlier than 6 months old.
