Offering for sale this super cool, young and handsome Trakhener/Holsteiner cross. Goliath has an absolutely amazing mind, both in the arena and out of it. He goes alone and in company on trails. Goliath is brave and very intelligent. Pair those qualities with elastic gaits, a pleasant work ethic and wonderful athleticism and you have a dream horse.
He is quiet and well behaved in new places and travels very well. Goliath has a great understanding of the connection and is easy to move off the leg. He is ready to show First Level and is starting some counter canter work. Goliath leg yields, has shoulder-in and has started lengthenings. He has been lightly started over fences and is very willing and brave to jump.
The sky is the limit with this incredible young horse. He is absolutely suitable for a Jr/Young Rider of Adult Amateur rider. He will go as far as someone wants to take him and is ready to find the perfect match.
Goliath cleaned up at his first recognized show! He won 2 of his four Open Training Level classes, earning three scores into the 70's! He was such a gentleman and so brave at the Aiken Horse Park. Goliath traveled 10 hours on a trailer, unloaded, tacked up and hacked out to the rings like he had done a thousand horse shows. He received 8's on his gaits and 8's on his submission. Super thrilled with this young horse!
Goliath attended his first horse show yesterday at the Kentucky Horse Park. Truly a once in a lifetime young horse: no lunging, no hand walking, no arena familiarization, no warm up arena preparation. He hauled in, unloaded, tacked up, and rode into the warm up in the covered arena (scary). Oh and it was 36° and raining...
He was more confident with each minute he was there and wound up scoring in the high 60s to win his training level test 2 class. Goliath left the arena on a long rein and walked quietly back to the warm up where he received a ton of praise and a peppermint.
The sky is literally the limit with this horse, imagine what a show horse he will be! He will be attending a recognized show in January.
