F. Scott is now fully approved by the GOV, RPSI and Old-ISR.
He placed 5th in the 70 day test (4th in the Jumping and 5th in the Dressage) He is by the famous Florencio, winner of the World FEI 5 year old and 6 year old classes in Germany.
Fhitzgerald is purely dressage bred, but at an early age, he showed an amazing jumping ability when free jumping. This jumping ability was confirmed at the 70 day test, where he was a MACHINE on the cross country course and over the stadium jumps. His jumping index of 115.89 indicates this talent he showed. Hunter and event breeders take note: he is a sire for your program. He is also beautiful with a super easy attitude and a pretty mover, especially at the canter. His first foals are due in 2010. He will stand to outside mares for $1500, with a $400 booking fee included. His semen is of excellent quality.
2010 Year end results:
27th HOY First Level, 6th HOY All Breeds for GOV with a 71.143%.
3/2010 We took Fhitzgerald and Shakespeare to a schooling show all the way down in VA at Morven Park in Leesburg, VA on Sunday 3/21. We went down and back in one day- a long day of driving! It was both Fhitzgerald's and Shakespeare's first dressage show and the first time in a dressage ring with a low fence (our outside ring at home is a regular sized dressage ring, but it has a high fence around it). Both boys were fabulous- well behaved and really impressive in the show ring under John's capable and talented riding. Fhitzgerald was second in First Level, test 3 with a 66.857% (includes one error of course- John knows the German tests but needs to learn the American ones). He was first in First Level, test 4 with a 71.579%. He received an 8 for gaits in both tests. What a super star- not bad results for his first ever dressage show!
Go to his website page to see his videos and I will try and post some from the show soon.
