2002 Hanoverian Gelding, Chestnut, 16.2 Ghalileo, or Leo, is now schooling all Second level movements and will be shown in 2009 at First and Second levels. In 2008, his first year of showing, Leo qualified for the BLM Championships at both Training and First levels. He also won the high score trophy at both Training and First levels for Virginia Dressage Association Charlottesville, based on the consistently high scores he obtained all year. He's easy and fun to ride; perfect for the amateur rider. He is a very nice mover with big gaits and excellent, natural rhythm and a laid-back attitude. He is nicely forward and quiet with an agreeable temperament. At a recent clinic with well-known S judge, Jeanne McDonald, he received the following comments: "this is the horse everyone wants to own--3 good gaits and a nice temperament." Leo's full sister is Elite Mare Gharbo (see RSF site for information). His other full sister was Ghin and Tonic (see tribute section). Leo's dam, Poppaea, is out of a full sister to Argentan. From his dam's side, his 2003 half sister, Fleuret, was Grand Champion of the VADA/Nova Breed show, 6/7/06 and his 2001 half brother, Fhinland, was an inspection site colt champion and went on to be presented as a stallion prospect.

Hi Mo- Hope you are well. I am sending you an update on Leo (I have been meaning to do this for awhile...) He is doing very well and I am having a good time with him. Unfortunately, I need to sell some of my horses and he is the most saleable. By the way, Woody and I are doing PSG--we have developed quite a relationship. He is 18 this year and still has his BMOC attitude toward the world. Hopefully, it will keep him going for years to come. I did a clinic recently with Jeanne McDonald and she LOVED Leo. She said she knew you. You are probably in the middle of foaling. Good luck. I also wish you some good uninterrupted hours of sleep. Thanks, Jan Templeton
