Ares (“Jota da Moita) is a stunning 6yo smoky black APSL gelding standing at 15.3hh. He was imported from Portugal in July of 2019. His bloodlines speak for themselves both for dressage or working equitation talent. If you have ever wanted to own a top bred Lusitano import, here he is! He has three outstanding gaits with a naturally balanced and uphill canter. Ares does best with a quiet, confident & sensitive rider as he rides like a sports car–very light in the hands and legs. Ares is not mean or deliberately naughty, but can still sometimes act like a youngster in his confidence-level and trust of people. For this reason, he needs a rider experienced with young horses. He has a very correct and typical baroque conformation, so he is very comfortable to ride and takes up the leg well for taller or shorter riders. We have played with single changes as well as advanced lateral work, and he shows definite FEI talent. Collection and lateral work are very easy for him! Ares has great feet (barefoot or shod), he is very willing, and stands nicely for all work. Loads easily and travels alone nicely. He is FABULOUS and ready to excel in a fantastic show facility. His owner is relocating and must downsize…your lucky day! Perfect for a pro or ambitious AA/Yr looking for FEI quality on a budget. PRICE DROPPED & OWNER MOTIVATED TO SELL! (📍Tampa FL)
