For sale (mid to high five figures) 2008 Imported Junior Hunter/ Big Eq Horse by Cooper Van De Heffinck
Kalisto (“Enzo”) is a stunning imported Junior Hunter/ Big Eq horse with a scopey jump, huge ground covering stride, and eye-catching presence in the show ring. Enzo loves his job, always wears his ears, and is eager to please. Enzo always jumps a 10 and is a top mover- in 2017 he placed 9th in the under saddle and Junior Hunter Finals- East Coast. Enzo was imported in late 2016 with experience to the 1.20m jumpers in Europe. In 2017, he began his show career in the US, transitioning to the Junior Hunters and Big Eq. At his first show out in the Junior Hunters, he qualified his rider for the Junior Hunter Finals 3’3”. He also has top placings in the Big Eq, First Year Greens, and took his rider to Reserve Champion in the 15-17 Equitation. Enzo is best suited to the hunters due to his scopey jump but can easily double in the equitation and knows all the tricks for the Big Eq- counter canter, lateral work, etc. Enzo is super brave with zero spook or stop and marched right around Junior Hunter Finals without batting an eye. He is straightforward enough for a novice rider yet has all of the scope and quality to take a rider to the top. A great opportunity for an up and coming rider to own a young horse with limitless potential and a long show career ahead of him!

For sale (low to mid five figures) 2008 Oldenburg Hunter/ Dressage/ Equestrian Team Horse by Roc USA
Oakley is a wonderful all-around horse for the rider looking to be competitive in hunters, equitation, high school equestrian team, or dressage. Oakley is a beautiful hunter with great movement and a 10 jump every time. Oakley always wears his ears and has a big, ground covering step. Oakley has shown in everything from the Low Children’s Hunters 2’6” to the Green Conformation Hunters at Devon, National Horse Show, and Pennsylvania National.

Oakley has a great foundation to make a wonderful dressage horse. He has 3 beautiful gaits, is naturally balanced and has quality transitions.

He goes easily and promptly from walk to trot and has a beautiful extended trot, stretchy trot, and free walk. He is well-schooled on the flat and has all of the “tricks” for the dressage ring including counter canter, flying changes, shoulder in, leg yield, travers and turn on the haunches.
In addition to his extensive experience in the hunters and basic dressage training, Oakley has successfully competed on his rider’s high school equestrian team in hunt seat equitation, speed events (barrels, speed and action, 2-man relay), trail classes and bareback equitation. Oakley can be ridden in a neck rope and has tarp training to confidently walk over tarps and have tarps pulled behind him/ dragged over him without batting an eye. Truly a one of a kind horse!
