Regazzoni (Rubinstein) x MS Debora (DONNERHALL)
A big congratulation to Penny J. on her purchase of Rigoletto! He will be loved and shown in dressage, helping Penny reach her competition dreams of moving up in the levels while also having a life-long companion and friend.
Rigoletto is a large 17.2 hand, uphill, nice confirmation, big boned, eye-catching, dark bay 6 y/o Hanoverian gelding. He comes with a solid pedigree boasting Regazzoni/Rubinstein (sire) and Debora/Donnerhall (dam). He only wants to please and is an easy horse to train, with great natural balance and big movement. Rigs loves attention, wanting to be in your lap and has NO VICES.
He was started as a four year old and then left a year to continue growing, and has been back in training this whole year of 2017. At his first dressage show he scored a 69% and at his second show he won High Point Hanoverian with his 66.5% at Training level. He is currently getting qualified for Regionals at first level with scores never below 64%.
His basics are solid, with very nice transitions and elasticity. He does shoulder-ins, haunches in/out, turn on the forehand and turn on the haunches, and has nice leg yields. Right now we are working on counter canter, more balance, stronger extensions, and better collections.
He is happiest and best suited to be a full time dressage horse. A pro can have fun on him, but he is also safe enough and easy enough for a young rider or adult amateur to enjoy.
He is sure to bring in the blue ribbons with ease, and gets compliments from everyone everywhere he is seen!
Rigs is up to date on all vaccines, got his teeth floated Feb 2018 and is micro chipped according to USEF regulations. He gets along with mares, geldings, and foals out in the pasture.
Don't let this amazing horse go under your radar, he is one of a kind, with a great future ahead of him!
